Ter - July 18

Grandpa Viv: I'm asking you this because you seem to be very knowledgeable and informative. My question is a bit long, so please bear with me. I am 32 and have always had normal cycles. My husband and I are ttc. This past month's cycle had been a little "different" and I was wondering if you could give me some answers. On 7/4 I was due for my period. July 4th came and I had gotten a very light flow (usually I have a pretty heavy flow that lasts about 4 days). This one was extremely light to the point that I had it about 4 days, BUT there was hardly anything IF anything on my tampon (sorry tmi). I took a pregnancy test around 7/11 and it came back negative. On or about 7/16, I was due to ovulate. I can always tell when I am ovulating - not only do I take a clear blue easy test, but I can feel it. Saturday morning 7/16 I took an ovulation test and it read that I would ovulate within the next 24-36 hours. THAT night, I felt as though I was ovulating (not usually normal signs for me). Today, Monday (7/18) the day I was due to actually ovulate, I felt nothing all day. I took another preg. test and it came back negative (ept). Tonight my husband and I had intercourse. I have now started to bleed - although not looks like the start of my cycle again. Could you explain ANY of this? Could I be or have been pregnant? My last resort is to go to the dr., but for now, just would like some info. if possible. Thank you.

You don't ovulate while pregnant. If you got the LH surge shown by the OPK, you were not pregnant 7/16 - a double check on the negative hpt and the body signal of ovulation. My inclination is to believe your body on when you actually ovulated. BD 7/14-7/16 would have been good. If today's light bleed had been two days hence, I would have said "implantation", but this is too early for that. Hmmm! Why was the 7/4 period so light? Why are you bleeding now at an odd time? I wonder if you have an ovarian cyst problem = menstrual irregularities. You probably need to see what the end of this cycle brings (Aug 1) before bothering the doctor. Another preg test now that a week has pa__sed would also be in order. Not much help, I'm afraid. Good luck!

thank you anyway. I will wait until the end of the month to see if I begin my cycle again. I appreciate your time.
