This happened every month when the progesterone and estrogen fall at month end when there is no pregnancy. It sometimes happens with a drop in estrogen after ovulation mid cycle. ...Read more

Ovulation: Ovulation occurs consistently about 14 days before your next cycle. If you know how many days there are from the first day of the bleeding to the next during your normal cycle just subtract 14 days. This allows you to predict when you should be ovulating. STDs, other infections, polyps, fibroids, hormonal fluctuations and other causes can cause mid cycle spotting. ...Read more
