ovulation bleed

Postby BreeAndJoe081415 » Tue Jan 17, 2017 8:53 am

On cycle day 12 I began to get pink tinged EWCM. Little early for me, but nothing too crazy. I don't normally get O bleed on my own, since I tried the three months of Clomid I have ever since. Not sure why. I continued to lightly spot thru CD 13 as well. On CD 14 it became heavier, ruined a pair of panties and heavy enough to wear a tampon. Today on CD15 it still bleeding. Way more than spotting, similar to that last day of your period?
Any other ladies have an ovulation bleed like this? Did a cyst burst perhaps? I've never had midcycle bleed before.
thanks in advance.

Hey, I think I'm in a similar position as you.

AF (or what I thought was AF) started on 5th January and was very light, it only lasted 3 days. I had EWCM on CD5 which was followed by 3 days of pale spotting and then slightly heavier bleeding CD12 through to today (CD14).

I'm wondering if I had a chemical pregnancy and confused that for AF, and the secondary bleeding I've been experiencing is either residual bleeding from the CP or it's actually AF.

If it's not that, it could well be a burst cyst - I have PCOS. I tried 5 rounds of Clomid - 1 cycle worked but resulted in an early miscarriage. I've had a couple of non-Clomid cycles and will start again on Clomid and Metformin next month.

The trouble is, when we experience random bleeding like this, it could be one of so many things!

Thank you for your reply. My last AF was normal, even a bit heavier than normal perhaps. After that, I had an ulrasoind where my RE Saw a cyst on each ovary. I hadn't ovulated yet, so I assumed one was a a follicle. Perhaps the other was a leftover from Clomid and it burst. I didn't know that could caused bleeding. I'm CD16 and still heavy spotting/light bleeding. Bright red. Hhmmm.

If a cyst burst you would know it. I deal with this every couple months and it's usually enough to land me in the ER.

I guess it was a cyst bursting. The cyst that was on my left ovary last month isn't there now. Painless though. Interesting. Thanks for replies.
