Spotting before Ovulation?

Postby Shew34 » Sun Apr 15, 2012 1:27 pm

Hi girls,

I'm on CD 12 and not set to ovulate for about 4 days (give or take). I took an OPK today and it was a strong medium shade. I just went to the bathroom and noticed a spot of brown blood in my underwear. Has anyone had this? I'm scared this month is a wash. I'm calling my doc in the morning, but wanted to see if anyone has had this. Also, we BD 2 days ago.

I took Clomid days 5-9, FYI.
Trying for #2 since Jan 2012.

I was getting ready to post this same question. I have been spotting for 3 days, and had a temp dip this morning. I am also crampy, not painful just annoying.

It is more than just a tiny spot though, so I was wondering is there a specific amount that is around ovulation time. I honestly think I did this last cycle too. Which I mistook for implantation, now that I look back I bet it was O. Can you have spotting/bleeding ON O day?

ovulation is actually very violent when the follicle finally ruptures if there are other cysts around it could cause bleeding or the follicle itself might bleed upon rupture. it could also be a sign of high estrogen right before ovulation.

chart looks like an o though.
