When in doubt: Just check pregnancy test in 2 weeks and repeat if negative in 1 week. And if you are still not bleeding normally and first pregnancy test was negative, check it again in 1 week. Try to remember if the last time you had unprotected intercourse was also near your last ovulation date. Then go see your GYN or family physician to get examined for infection if things persist. ...Read more

Spotting day 10/11, + OPK day 17/18, spotting day 19/20/21, BBT temp still not risen. Ovulated yet? What's happening? Not experienced annovulation

Maybe: Best test for ovulation is a blood Progesterone level of > 3 ng/ml. Other than pregnancy (which is proof positive) the other tests are less specific. I think that bbts are kinda cruel so rarely suggest that my patients do them. Opks have been shown to only increase patient anxiety and not improve chance of pregnancy. So for patients with regular cycles I suggest sex on cyclec days 10/12/14/16. ...Read more

Menstrual fluctuations are affected by many different factors, including nutrition, psychological state of mind, stress, infections/ illnesses, etc. If things continue to be irregular or unpredictable in the next couple of months, check pregnancy test twice 1 week apart. ...Read more

If you don't start your period in 10 days check a pregnancy test and if it is negative repeat it in 3-4 days and be sure that you are taking your prenatal vitamins. Best wishes. ...Read more

Ovulation: The shift or hormones at ovulation can cause spotting. The spotting is not necessarily associated with conception but if you had unprotected sex around the time of ovulation spotting does not rule out conception. If your period is late, check a pregnancy test and repeat it in 3-5 days if it is negative. Hope this helps. ...Read more

One day after peak ovulation based on clear blue digital. I wiped this morning and had very light pink spotting. What's going on?

Drop in estrogen: After the LH surge (hormonal trigger for ovulation) there is a natural decrease in the estrogen level. This can slightly destabilize the uterine lining leading to spotting. It should resolve quickly. If it recurs monthly then I would recommend you have an evaluation of your uterine cavity for polyps or fibroids. Also consider a thin uterine lining especially if you are taking Clomid/Clomiphene ...Read more
