Missed ovulation: If you fail to ovulate there the level of norestrogen is low and the tissue breaks down and detaches some. This leads to bleeding. Failure to ovulate will do this. That happens in stress, illness, athletics, and other conditions. The next cycle can be normal.

Varies: It helps to know more about your symptoms and history. If you have had a cesarean delivery it is quite common to have periods that seem to linger on. If you are experiencing the spotting and cramping from 7 to 21 days after your last period started and 14 days before your next period, then the spotting is likely due to ovulation.
