Spotting for a week before period

Postby 860lindsey » Fri Jan 19, 2018 6:19 am

Hi everyone! I'm wondering if anyone has any advice or any natural ways to regulate my cycles. Before my first two pregnancies I would start spotting around dpo 9/10 and then my period would start on day 11/12. After my second baby last summer I went on birth control and bleed for 2 months straight. The dr switched my pills and I still continued to bleed all month. I got frustrated and stopped the pills but now on dpo 8 I start spotting and continue until dpo 14/15 before my actual period starts for 6 full days. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions. My temperatures stay very high during the spotting so my dr said by looking at my chart that she didn't think I had low progesterone. Thank you

Just by looking at someone’s chart you cannot diagnose low progesterone,that is why we have the option to get tested...very unprofessional of your doctor in my opinion.
Have you tried vitex?they say it helps.and maybe try natural progesterone cream starting at 4-5dpo,maybe that will stop the spotting.I have no idea what else to suggest..I hope you find a solution.good luck!
