Spotting two days after ovulation?

Mid-cycle spotting: Spotting or bleeding mid-cycle is likely to be around the time of ovulation, when estrogen hormone levels drop. Progesterone hormone 'kicks in' to stop the bleeding. If the spotting continues, or your last period wasn't 'normal', or you get pregnancy symptoms take a pregnancy test to make sure it isn't early pregnancy bleeding. See a fertility specialist (rei) if trying to conceive without success.

Ovulation spotting: At 28, if is sometimes possible for two eggs to ovulate, and the drop in estrogen just before ovulation is enough to cause the lining of the womb to bleed slightly, just as it does when your period occurs, only much lighter. In your 30's and 40's this may happen more regularly, but it is not harmful, and your fertility options are not compromised.

Check cervix: Have your doctor check your cervix. Your cervix may be very delicate due to an infection or an abnormality on it. It seems like that when it is bumped during intercourse, you spot.

Not sure: If you are trying to conceive, and are having spotting leading up to your next period, this might be the earliest sign of implantation bleeding. Check a pregnancy test two week after you think you ovulated.

Unspecific sign: Spotting is an unspecific sign meaning it can occur from a variety of causes. If the progesterone worked, a home urine pregnancy test should be positive by now.

Does pink, mid-cycle spotting indicate ovulation? If so, does it happen before, during or after ovulation? I have 26 day cycle with one pink spot cd11

Does pink, mid-cycle spotting indicate ovulation? If so, does it happen before, during or after ovulation? I have 26 day cycle with one pink spot cd11

No, it: Does not indicate ovulation. An ovulation predictor kit does, though. If spotting indicated ovulation, it would be easier to tell people when they are ovulating. Under status it says "doesn't know" under pregnancy. You may wanna check a pregnancy test. Gd luck.

?: Brown blood is old blood. It means you had some sort of bleeding in the past. It takes time for the old blood to show up as spotting. Therefore, what it means is hard to say but not necessarily abnormal.

How long does ovulation spotting last?

Unkown: Most women do not experience ovulation spotting, but since you seem to know what it is... did you talk with a Gyn about this? If not, you should go get checked out since you are young and this is new. If you have already discussed it, and the pattern of bleeding/ spotting has changed then give them a call and ask if you should return for a visit

Will I see pink spotting after I ovulate?

Will I see pink spotting after I ovulate?

Possible: Many women do have spotting around the time of ovulation. That is quite common and very normal. It is due to the transient drop in estrogen levels that occurs just before ovulation.
