I've been ttc now im a week after ovulation and bleeding heavy. Could it be pregnancy or what could it be. Also cramping lightly?

Possible: If the bleeding is implantation bleeding due to conception then a pregnancy test should be positive by about 10 days after ovulation. The cramping could also be normal very early in a pregnancy. Good luck. ...Read more

Sex on days 5 and 11. Tested days 10-15 and no ovulation. Heavy bleeding 10 days early for period. Possible miscarriage? Took Clomid (clomiphene) Oct & Nov.

Sex on days 5 and 11. Tested days 10-15 and no ovulation. Heavy bleeding 10 days early for period. Possible miscarriage? Took Clomid (clomiphene) Oct & Nov.

It is Possible: The effects of Clomid (clomiphene) can last into the next cycle, so it is possible that you might have missed the LH surge. Make sure you follow up with your Provider. Doing a luteal phase (1 week after LH surge) Progesterone may help determine whether you need additional treatment or something different. ...Read more

Pregnancy or menses: Carefully record your periods for normal periods are 21-35 days interval lasting max 8 days. Of course not "excessive" so count pads and type I.e. Maxi, lite, etc. Also, new onset clot, or pain. Go to Gyn if pregnancy is suspected or you test positive urine test. Or if cycle doesn't return to normal.

Positive ovulation test then heavy bleeding and bad cramping next day. 3rd day still bleeding heavy, cramping light to none. What is happening?

See below: Unusual menstrual cycles don't necessarily mean that there's anything wrong physically. The menstrual cycle is under very delicate hormonal control, which can be influenced by things such as exercise, rapid weight change, emotional stress etc. But to be safe: see your GYN if you continue to have abnormal bleeding.

I have had the Skyla IUD for 6 months and not had a period since; however, my bleeding during ovulation gets heavier with each month. Is this normal?

I have had the Skyla IUD for 6 months and not had a period since; however, my bleeding during ovulation gets heavier with each month. Is this normal?

Defeats purpose: The purpose of the Skyla IUD is to make women have lighter and shorter cyclical bleeding. It may cause irregular spotting/bleeding. As long as the irregular bleeding/spotting and any cyclical bleeding is perceived less bothersome than the monthly bleeding pattern without the Skyla, you have a winner. If not, you may as well have the Skyla removed and try an alternative. ...Read more

Is it possible to have heavy bleeding during ovulation?

I used ovulation tests to determine ovulation and had intercourse. It's now 5 days later and I'm experiencing heavy bleeding. What could this be?

Uncertain. Possibly: ...it's implantation bleeding, altho this tends to be very light. Your normal cyclic hormones might be a bit confused, causing an early menstrual period. In any case, if you had a (+) ovulation test and are now experiencing unusually heavy and/or painful bleeding & cramping, I recommend you see your doctor. A pregnancy test this early might not be helpful either way. Best wishes! ...Read more

Is this really a period? My period was two weeks late this month than I started bleeding heavy two days ago. I usually ovulate around this time so I took a ovulation test and got a positive but I am having medium bleeding today. My cycle is usually 29 to

Is this really a period? My period was two weeks late this month than I started bleeding heavy two days ago. I usually ovulate around this time so I took a ovulation test and got a positive but I am having medium bleeding today. My cycle is usually 29 to

Let: Let me start by saying that ovulation prediction tests are not always accuruate, and actually need to be done at a specific time for a set amount of days in order to more accurately detect ovulation (detailed instructions can be found in the packaging). Regardless, the fact that your are bleeding, although two weeks late can be considered your period.
The question is wether or not you ovulated two weeks ago. Typically menstrual bleeding starts two weeks after ovulation if conception does not occur. Even if you did not ovulate, you could be having an anovulatory cycle which is the shedding of your uterus due hormonal imbalance (hence bleeding). If you took a pregnancy test while bleeding, and it was neg then you are likely not having a miscarriage or pregnant. To be sure you can repeat the test in a few weeks or visit your doctor sooner for a serum (blood) pregnancy test.
Good luck. ...Read more

Probably not: If the pill is taken correctly, it is 99% effective at birth control by preventing ovulation. If you aremissing a lot of doses, it is possible that you are ovulating. When you first start the pill it takes about 3 months to regulate your period. If you just started the pill, you may want to take a pregnancy test. ...Read more

Had d&c 1/24 for a mc. Bled till 2/1. Had ovulation like pain on 2/10. Started spotting red on 2/18. Started heavy bleeding 2/23 this normal healing?

Probably: Persistent light and irregular bleeding for a while after a d;c is not really unusual. Your normal period can be expected about a month later, which is consistent with both the recent heavy bleeding and the possible ovulation pain. If your cycle does not now get back to normal you will need to be reevaluated. ...Read more

Hormonal imbalance: Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

Bleeding heavy for 2 days and then nothing, a week and a half before period is due. Had unprotected sex around ovulation time. Implantation bleeding?

Probably not: Implantation bleeding occurs around the time of the missed period, and this bleeding happened prior to that. Do check a pregnancy test if you are late for your period. Bleeding mid cycle can come from an infection in the cervix or vagina, from a growth on the cervix, or from the hormones being off this cycle. See your doctor if you have any concerns. ...Read more
