I have this too. Only started after we started NTNP. Never had it before. I can't believe there's not enough information about this online. I googled it in every way possible. I don't think it's progesterone in my case, because my LP is 13-14 (not sure exactly how long yet, only temping this month, but since I get positive OPK it always takes 15 days for the AF to show up). I'm also taking Pregnacare - no difference. Starting Agnus Castus this month too, although I'm pretty close to O, so I don't know if a few days taking it would make any difference.

Well, my AF turned out not to be AF and bl**dy spotting again! I was positive it was going to turn into AF as the spotting had turned red last night, now back to brown again. Am praying it could be implantation bleeding but deep down I know the real is round the corner. I got upset last night over nothing! I don't mind a BFP this month, but just really wish the spotting would go away. I'm thinking vit B6 now but I'm already taking so much I feel ridiculous! Stupid thing is the spotting was never this long before TTC! Thanks ladies x

I've also reduced my sugar intake (I've got a big sweet tooth) and upped my exercise as I've heard that can cause low progesterone.
Miss PTTC- They do say that it takes a while for AC to take effect so FX next month you get a much longer LP. Do you take it in tablet or liquid form? I have heard the the liquid form gives you faster results.

I'm taking the tablets hun, I couldn't stomach the liquid I am a right wimp lol. Well the AC took effect on ovulation straight away, just not the spotting, but I think B6 is more for that than the AC, though they're supposed to do similar jobs... xxx

Hi everyone

Just to update you. Had my first appt at hosp with the fertility doctor yesterday and it went well. He did a smear and is sending me off to get a couple of scans. I asked him about the spotting and he said that it didn't affect fertility at all, few!! I'm still going to keep taking the AC and vit B complex though as he says that's fine. It doesn't seem to have reduced the spotting entirely but it's defo A LOT lighter, so i figure that must be a good thing!!

Hi star31,

What did he say about the spotting? I have this too, and am going to my doctor on Monday, and getting an internal ultrasound done, and my doc said he will then send me to a specialist. when I told him about the spotting a few weeks ago, he said it wasn't right that my body was doing this. UGH. I just wish they would get their facts straight!!!

How early do you start spotting? And sorry if this is TMI, but do you start off with brown stringy stuff? I do.

i have this problem and am also TTC for baby number 2 for over a year.

i recently had a lapand dye where they found scar adhesions from the c section and some mild endo from the scar too - but they removed it all and cycle after lap the spotting was still there.

i went back to my consultant and she prescribed me progesterone pessaries for a LPD and this is my first cycle on them - i am 11dpo and no spotting in sight - this is unheard of for me - i usually spot from about 5 /6 dpo.

i had a day 21 test and it showed normal but when i charted my temps were up and donw (not below cover line) so i dont knw if that was indicative of low progesterone but its pretty strange that the first month on this progesterone and so far no spotting.

i did all of this on private medical insurance because my GP is not remotely interested and actually told me i was totally fine and to basically go away - i had an ultrasound the the adhesions and endo did not show on the ultrasound so as far as she was concerned it was end of - its only because the spotting was so upsetting every month and i knew something was wrong that i went back to the consultant and straight off she said lap and dye and now progesterone.

PS i tried agnus castus and B6 and they did not help me.

pps - this month i did take soy so i dont know if its the soy that helped or the progesterone or both but the soy did make me ov 2 days earlier, i do think its the progesterone thats helped me re the spotting though.

Hi, I have this problem too. Started about a year ago. It started with only a day maybe two and has gotten a little longer over the year. Some months are close to a week!! I was terrified it was going to affect our chances of having a baby when my hubby and I decided to start a family. We just finished our first month TTC and I got a BFP! I hope you get yours soon. From what I have learned with Doctors is that if they arent worried, you shouldn't be too worried either.

I have been TTC for 9 months. I, too, have this dreaded spotting. Sometimes I start spotting a week before AF, sometimes 3 days, or sometimes I don't spot at all. I spot more often than not, though. I hope this isn't negatively affecting my fertility. Does anyone know what the cause is and how to handle it?

Rainbow32 you are amazing! I've been hoping to hear from someone who was successful in getting rid of their spotting. I'm going to print your post and smush it in my doctor's face on Monday! I want that damn progesterone and to never ever spot again (unless is it is IB). thank you for the information!
