    I was just going to post about this as my first post!

    This cycle and last month, CD15 and I am bleeding. Not heavy, but more than spotting. Bright red and watery with EWCM mixed in (sorry for the visual!) I read, after Googling for freaking hours that although not common, it isn't rare either and is actually a good sign of high fertility. Which is all very good, but having to persuade DH to get on with it despite the goo was interesting!

    Like I said, mine is more than spotting and I am super crampy. I have an appt. with my OB/GYN next week to be sure. I never had this previous to last month.

    Oh and I have NOT got a pos. OPK either, which is odd because the day before I started bleeding I have distinct O pain.

    Thanks Lilipop

    Its weird isnt it as i've never had it before last month and then all of a sudden i've got it 2 months in a row.
    Hopefully its nothing serious and just some normal ov spotting then

    Thanks for the reply - let me know how you get on at the GYN

    i never seem to get POS on those OPKs but the monitor has given me highs and hopefully a peak soon x

    If you are trying to get pregnant you may want to look for some physical signs of ovulation. Some signs of ovulation include increased cervical mucous, cramping on one side, or breast tenderness. Some women will notice light spotting around the time of ovulation. This light spotting is known as ovulation spotting and is considered a great sign of fertility.
    What causes ovulation spotting?

    There are a couple of thoughts on what causes ovulation spotting. Some people believe that the light spotting is a result of the egg rupturing through the follicle during ovulation. It is thought that as the egg bursts from the follicle that a little bleeding may occur. This is why some women may notice brown spotting, which is generally an indicator of older blood, around the time they ovulate. The blood may turn brown as it exits the body.

    The other possible explanation for ovulation spotting is that the spotting is a result of a woman’s changing hormones during ovulation. As a woman’s body prepares to ovulate, follicles will start to grow and mature. As they mature they produce more estrogen. This increase in estrogen triggers a surge in LH, another hormone involved in ovulation. When LH surges it signals the mature egg to burst from the follicle. Estrogen rises sharply right before a woman ovulates and it is thought that the increase in estrogen levels may cause light spotting to occur.
    When does ovulation spotting occur?

    Ovulation spotting normally occurs right before ovulation or during ovulation. It may appear as light bleeding or brown or pinkish spotting. Sometimes it will be mixed with egg-white looking cervical mucous. There are other causes of mid-cycle spotting but if the spotting occurs around the time ovulation is expected, there is a good chance that the spotting is a result of ovulation.
    Timing Intercourse with Ovulation Spotting

    Normally ovulation spotting will last for one or two days and most women will ovulate shortly after. If you notice ovulation spotting, this is a good time to start having intercourse. It is helpful to use an ovulation prediction test to help further pinpoint ovulation. You may notice egg-white looking cervical mucous or ovulation pain around this time. Cervical mucous gets thinner and stretchier as ovulation approaches. After ovulation cervical mucous dries up and ovulation spotting usually disappears. The closer you time intercourse with ovulation the better. It is a good idea to continue having intercourse for a few days following ovulation spotting to be sure that ovulation has occurred. You may also want to keep a fertility chart to help confirm when you ovulated.

    Hi hun! Just got your message - so thought I'd reply here. I've also read in a few places that spotting around ovulation is a really good sign of ovulation - better get busy! I never had it myself - my ov has only ever been detectable with temps I'm afraid. I always got spotting during the luteal phase - anything from 5dpo onwards, I think that's what Jacky was thinking of. Your spotting sounds like good news - time to get :sex:! :hugs:

    I'm a bit confused at the moment ladies so hoping you can help

    I started spotting again at the beginning of the week just a really light brown like last month, but then its carried on all week but its been heavier than last month and longer but not as heavy as a period and my monitor has been saying HIGH until this morning when its returned to LOW again. Yesterday the spotting was a little heavier and more red (only enough to wear a panty liner) for an hour and then nothing again but then today its really brown with little red clots....

    so is it my period come very early for a change? CD25 is VERY early for me
    but then why is my monitor been saying HIGH all week?
    i havent had period pains or anything either

    ????????????????? :hug:

    Hun, have done a pg test? There is this thread on here from someone ho got bfp on cd8 and bfn right up to af which came normally. This doesn't sound like ov spotting to me... I would :test: and talk the docs - you should always get unexplained bleeding checked out :hugs::hugs:
