You need to be seen: Thanks for your question! When women experience extremely heavy periods, you can get anemic pretty quick. Schedule an appointment with your GYN to be examined and to get some blood work. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Trying, my last period 4/13_4/18. A week after period I have light bleeding on & off . Different cycle each month. When do ovulate? Please help

Trying, my last period 4/13_4/18.    A week after period I have light bleeding on & off . Different cycle each month. When do ovulate? Please help

May vary: Typically one ovulates about 14 days after the first day of the period, however if your cycles are irregular, the timing of your ovulation will likely be irregular as well. To account for this i usually recommend couples have sex at least every other day on cycle days 10-18. An ovulation kit used over several cycles will help to give you a more precise idea. Good luck & look us up in high point! ...Read more

Started spotting/light bleeding 10 days after period ended. Is this considered a period ? Does it change my expected ovulation date?

Started spotting/light bleeding 10 days after period ended.  Is this considered a period ? Does it change my expected ovulation date?

No and No: It would not be another period that soon. The spotting could be due to ovulation. If you start your period about two weeks after the spotting, that would confirm ovulation has occurred at about the time of the spotting. Spotting at the time of ovulation is quite common and is not considered to be abnormal. ...Read more

A week after period I've been getting abnormal bleeding. It's light and has been happening once a day for 6 days. Am I ovulating or could it be cancer?

A week after period I've been getting abnormal bleeding. It's light and has been happening once a day for 6 days. Am I ovulating or could it be cancer?

See a doctor: It would be rare for this to be cancer but it is not normal and you need to be examined to know what is going on. This could be an infection which untreated could cause problems getting pregnant in the future. Hope this helps. ...Read more
