Unprotected sex 11/3 & 11/10. Period due 11/7. 11/13 light pink spotting once. 11/14 only when I wipe brown blood. And my calc say I ov today puzzled?

Hopefully, if your period was truly due on the 7th, than having sex on the 3rd and 10th would be unlikely to get you pregnant. And if you were in fact supposed to ovulate today, those sex dates would be getting far away as well. The 10th is cutting it close though. ...Read more

Breakthrough: You're having some breatkthrough bleeding, which is common. Usually due to abnormal ratios of estrogen and progesterone. You can see your doctor about taking some hormones to help regulate your cycle and prevent breakthrough bleeding, or you can see if it's a one time thing and maybe won't happen again next cycle. Weight can also be a cause (thin/heavy). so make sure healthy weight/diet. ...Read more
