    I got this from the nhs website,

    'Some women experience bleeding about 10-14 days after their period. This is usually caused by a temporary drop in levels of the hormone oestrogen at the time of ovulation (when an egg is released by an ovary). This is quite normal.'

    I hope this is the case for you, good luck with your appointment and dont forget to post how it went :hugs:

    I'm not sure about spotting a week before your period is due. Are you sure it's not closer to two weeks? Mittelschmerz is the ovulation pain 20 to 30% of women get and sometimes it includes spotting. I've been getting it ever since I've been off the pill and I probably got it before I was on the pill too only I never paid attention at the time so I can't say for sure.

    Last month my hubby and I missed our chance to catch the eggie because we thought my period was starting. Went to the doctor's when, two weeks later, I still had no AF and a BFN. Of course, the morning of my appointment--two weeks to the day after my spotting--my AF showed her face and my doctor told me the spotting was my Mittelschmerz.:blush: She told me it was a sign that I was ovulating so it makes me feel like at least one part of me is working.

    I'm bit of a hypochrondiac so I see my doctor alot and think it's worth going if you're genuinely concerned. Worrying and stressing about your body will only make you feel worse.

    That is something I get and have heard it can be due to low progesterone. I have been taking vitamin B6 (100mg) with other B vits to try help and am also trying progesterone cream this cycle after ov. It is apparently normal though to get 1 or 2 days spotting mid luteal phase due to a drop in hormones around that time.

    Hi I too have had bleeding after my period. I had a late miscarriage almost 6 weeks ago and started my period on 10th dec-14th dec. I then had some fresh red blood on 17th and 19th dec. I was worried what it could be, we had sex before i bled so maybe i have aggravated something that hadnt healed properly?. Been getting period type pains for a few weeks. Hopefully my cycle is normal this month and I will ovulate in a few days, and the extra little bleed I have had is nothing major. Could sex be a reason for your spotting?

    thanks ladies... im hoping its something simple and not bad... im abit worried.. im already past ovulation so i know it wasnt from ov...

    the first time i got it i was so happy cuz i thought yayyy IB but nope :wacko:
    im being told it could be IB this time but it i got abit on 10 dpo and then followed by some brown cm.. and then nothing.. im now 13 dpo and nothing.. no sign of af.. i dunno if that was af :shrug: or weather it was just abit of weird hormone imbalance....

    i rang my doctor she told me to take a test on xmas day and come in after that if bfn... :dohh:
