Ok, Im trying to figure out what could possibly be going on with my body.
Last month I coudnt catch the LH surge but ff gave me CHs anyway (dotted) after my temp went up. Then I had a fallback rise and nothing but ewcm throughout the entire cycle.

So when the new cycle began I decided to take some supplements I had ordered a while back. They are called Fertile Regime and its mainly chinese herbs and prenatals with vitex. I only took them for 2 weeks. Then I ovulated and 4 days later I started to spot. The next day I had a light flow and so did I yesterday. So I went ahead and started a new chart. I also had cramps, but mild.

Anyway, I went to get my blood drawn today because I want to check my progesteron. But when I got in the nurse started asking me all sorts of questions about LMP and O date and she then said she was going to order an fhs and a beta to see if I am pregnant. I told her there is no way I could be but she said that given my bleeding and cramps she wants to make sure its not an ectopic.

I highly doubt it and I am wondering if two weeks of Vitex can possibly be causing this?
Ive had fibroids and polyps before in my uterus and these were not the symptoms. So I feel at a loss as to what could possibly be causing this breakthrough bleeding.

Any ideas?

Iv used the vitex and didn't have anything like bleeding . They didn't do much for me tbh. The temping I can't help you with . But I have heard that o testing sticks can miss the surge sometimes . You may be pregnant . Ie it may be one of those things that we never get to the bottom of . Good luck and I hope you are pregnant .

I don't know either. It is a good thing they are keeping an eye on things just in case. An ectopic is nothing to mess about with. I am hoping it is spregnancy as well. That would be a wonderful surprise.

I hope and pray it is not an ectopic, I've had that once back in May of this year. I had gotten pg while on the mirena iud. I had a new one in place and it just has not been the same for me. DH and I wanted to TTC in December and my doctor was giving me a hard time about removing it. I am 40 and she feels that at my age it would be tough...so I switched OBGYNs, I go on the 30th of this month. On 10/4 I was in a lot of pain and felt blah and I was reading some board discussions on the IUD. I was surprised of all the details I did not know about. I removed it myself actually, popped right out. I had some heavy bleeding from the 6th - 12th then it stopped for 2 days and than came back for 4 more. We have not been TTC yet, but have not really prevented it either. Ectopic is not something I would ever want to experience again. Good Luck!!

Rather safe then sorry and I hope the nurse ran the tests she wanted to.

I have never experienced an ectopic but I have read that you sometimes get shoulder pain associated with it, and unusual bleeding although the bleeding could be a few things.

You can get spotting after O from the release of the follicle although I dont think it is very common, ovarian cysts that burst can cause bleeding, fluctuations in hormones and implantation bleeding although 4 DPO could be a bit early for IB. It is possible to have mid cycle bleeding and still get pregnant, but you need to determine what the bleeding is from first.

Good luck and I hope you get some answers soon!!!
