hi ladies, well my hormones im guessing have been off a little bit bc i started getting hot flashes at the age of 21, periods still came in between 28-35 days and the hot flashes just started before my last period. im about on cd 19-21 (depended if you go by first spotting or first blood flow) anyways this morning i went to the bathroom and i had cm with a tint of brown. i know some women have seen that before they found out they were pregnant, but it just seems way too early for that to be happening if that is the case. can that happen when you ovulate to? has anyone experienced it this early and still ended up pregnant or it just happened when they were ovulating. i know just because it happened to one person doesnt mean it is happening to me, but this is new for me and the situation i am in (bf and i just broke up and he is moving out of state) so i need to know as many ideas as possible as soon as possible. thanks ladies!! please share your stories on this!!!

Hi! I get some blood mixed with my cm every month a few days before I O. Usually it is bright red or pink, but this month it has been brown - exactly like you describe it. This started happening in August. This might be the case for you. It sounds like you could be Oing soon especially if you are experiencing ewcm.

alright thank you very much. it comes and goes there was some this morning and now there is some this afternoon. it is so weird since it hasnt happened before. how much blood/old blood is there when u have it? sorry for the personal question!

LOL! No question is too personal on this forum! I actually get quite a good amount of blood, and having it mixed with cm makes it look like even more. It's enough to require a few pantiliners during the day, but not enough for a pad. I would describe it as spotting. Before I started working out in August I would only get a dab of blood mixed with the cm, but since I started working out, I get quite a bit more. I searched and searched for someone who had a similar situation, and I couldn't find anything except that some women get slight bleeding before O. I am going to see a fertility specialist tomorrow for the first time, so I will ask about it and I'll let you know what he says. If you find out any more information, please let me know. Oh, do you exercise on a regular basis? If so, do you find that it effects your bleeding. I find that I bleed much more on the days that I exercise.

no i do not exercise. i posted this question on a different board and have no received any ideas but i know i have read a post similar to this before. there was a little this morning, then a little more this afternoon, then tonight i was shocked. there isn't a lot of blood at all, and it is all old. if i find out anything myself i will update you. i am half tempted to go buy an opk just to see if i get a surge so i know this is probably related to ovulation. my body has completely changed aparently. please keep me updated on how you are and what the dr says!!! ty!!

Yes, you should go get some opks. I think that's a great idea. That way you will have some idea what is going on. I'll let you know what my RE says today!

 

confusedgrl - July 10

well today i have not had any yet so i think it is too late for opks. good luck at the drs!!! i had the strangest dream that i was pregnant and about to give birth, there was a lot more detail to it, but i havent had a dream that i was pregnant and bout to give birth for a very long time. i sort of think i had the dream bc im wondering if im pregnant now and i had a m/c a few months back and would be due begining of august and that is coming up.... anyways enough about that! have a great day

ahhh i am dying to know what the dr told you!!!!!!! i hope you are doing ok!!

Hi confusedgrl. The dr. appt went very well. They did a lot of tests and so far everything is very normal. I have a nice follie developing on my left ovary and I should O on Wednesday or Thursday. I told the dr about the midcycle bleeding and he didn't think it was a problem at all. Also, I don't bleed WHEN I O, I bleed about 3-5 days BEFORE O, so I think if your situation is similar to mine, you might still have a chance for this month. An opk wouldn't hurt, although my dr seemed to think they can be pretty unreliable. Who knows!?!? Good luck and happy bding!

hey thanks for teling me how the drs went. im glad everything has turned out normal so far!! i guess i will just have to wait and see if this was from Oing or if it was implantation

confusedgrl, keep me posted!

 

confusedgrl - July 12

well i tested yesterday morning bc i had a test and it was -, which doesnt surprise me with how early i am in my cycle and it could have just been ovulation. i still dont know what is up bc now it feels like i have a lot of cm but when i use the restroom there is none there or barely any there. haha i will be taking a test every other day im sure until af shows up!!! lol

Hi I don't want to b___t in but just offering my experience with exercise and bleeding. I don't have ovulation spotting but I do excerise a lot and when I exercise and I'm on my AF I always get more blood. I've always just thought that it was because of all the movement. Also I find that I often start my AF during a workout which is a pain. Good luck

hey thanks for the post, any ideas on anything is great to read about!
