Trying to Get Pregnant

Does anyone else spot like crazy?

I always spot for a few days before AF arrives and a couple days after I think it's stopped! Does this happen to anyone else? I don't remember if I did this before BC, so it could very well be a side effect from going off the NuvaRing in March, but it's quite annoying! Anything to worry about, you think?

Re: Does anyone else spot like crazy?

  • I spot. A lot. Have a look at my charts. It can be a sign of low progesterone - which can be determined with bloodwork. I have normal progesterone however and still spot. I have no answers yet but am seeing an ob/gyn in Oct for it.

    Wow! That is a lot. I'm glad your levels are normal. How long did you wait before you brought it up to the doctor? I'm on cycle 5 now, and I think it just might be too early to schedule any type of appointment, but I'm kind of worried about it. And, I don't like having to wear a panty liner for 11 days in a row!!!!!

  • WinkHey Steff!  I don't spot too much but I just wanted to say welcome back to the bump and GL this cycle
    So happy for my BFPB Steff13914 and her new twins! Welcome to the world sweet babies:) Baby Birthday Ticker Ticker
  • I have intermittent spotting before AF and usually just one day at the end.  It is annoying and of course I only started doing this when I started TTC.  I have had moments of wondering if I should be concerned and when I went to my m/c follow-up appointment she looked at my charts and said it was normal. I would get it checked out just for peace of mind.

    BTW, welcome back and did you dye your hair? :(

    Yes, I am a spotter. I spotted for 60-something days in a row 2 cycles ago. And the one before that, I think I had 8 days mid-cycle. I was just dx with PCOS, don't know if that has anything to do with it.

    Hi MySweetBaboo! I'm glad your doctor thinks it's normal. I have a feeling I'm probably just over thinking it since my LP seems to be ok and I seem to be ovulating. I might call them just to see if they would even let me go in. It would definitely help ease my mind!

    And no, that's a slightly older picture of me. I cut my hair a couple months ago and have not colored it again. It's the only pic I had on my computer at work, and I thought I'd at least post something so people would remember me! :)

  • Same thing happens to me. I spot like crazy for about 4 days before and 3 days after.  I went off BCP in May so I don't know if its a side effect or not.

  • Yes, and a couple times I've been a little worried but I'll wait until my next appoinment to talk to the dr. 
  • I don't spot at all, but as soon as that first "spot" does come, I better grab a tampon fast lol.
  • Thanks for the responses ladies!  I called and they said the doctor would see me! Shockingly, I have an appt. Monday. Wow! I wasn't expecting to get in so soon. I hope they tell me I'm normal and it's nothing to be concerned about :) I'll let you all know what they tell me.

  • I always spot for 2-4 days before AF. The cycle I got pregnant with my DS I had spotting like I always do. Then AF never arrived. I have no idea what causes it, but I thought I'd share so that you don't give up hope when you start spotting. It doesn't necessarily mean you're not pregnant!
  • I DO! I always spot at least 4 days before AF, but I usually end right on time.  This cycle I have very very light spotting.. I don't start for another week, but it definitely isn't as significant as usualy. 

     I don't always think its something to worry about, but I'm not a dr  I've talked to people who say they always spot, and even some who have spotted through and entire pregnancy. GL at the dr! Let us know what they say. Before when I'd ask about the spotting, they'd say use BCP, but that obviously won't work for us TTC.
