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

It is always: startling when your period does something different! I presume you are not using hormonal contraception (pills, patch, IUD, implant). Many doctors would suggest a call or visit to your PCP/GYN for evaluation of this unexpected bleeding. However, unexpected bleeding is so common that many others would say this can be watched/treated with NSAIDs for pain for a month. I probably would call in:) ...Read more
