TTC After a Loss

question (possibly TMI)

So my husband and I were cleared to TTC again about a week and a half ago... and it seems like a lot of times we try within a few hours afterwards, I'm spotting. It's like a light brownish/tan color and not heavy. I'm not on my period anymore so I doubt it's still related to that. What could it be? I know implantation bleeding is possible (but a lot of times I've heard it's so little most women don't even notice it), but if it was implantation bleeding it wouldn't be almost everyday would it? Perhaps my body is just still adjusting? Just thought I would throw the question out there to see if you ladies had any idea. It's annoying to have to wear a pantyliner every day because of it. According to my charting/app I should be ovulating this week.

Re: question (possibly TMI)

  • If you haven't ovulated yet it can't be implantation bleeding, but it could be ovulation bleeding.  It's rare, but it happens.

    Good luck!

  • When I was first cleared to ttc, the first few times we dtd, I would spot too. For me it was not ovulation bleeding (I still haven't ovulated or had AF yet), but I figured maybe it was just that the "action" had caused it, since my whole nether region had just been through so much trauma.

  • That's what I figured, but I know sometimes it's hard (for me at least) to determine when I'm ovulating since my cycles are so off. It was the only thing I could think of that it may be. I don't know why else I would be spotting?

    Thanks for the GL. GL to you too. Smile

  • My cycles were crazy after each of my losses, and I had random bleeding and spotting in between actual periods for about 3 months. Sex caused a lot of it. For me, I think it was just my body readjusting and getting back to normal.

    I'm almost 3 months out from my loss and still sometimes get random spotting brownish generally. Sometimes it's the day after we DTD, sometimes it's a few days after. Our bodies do some funky things after a loss, that's all I can attribute it to.

    Well it's reassuring I'm not the only one. I'm not sure it was because of DTD or the 'action' because we've been DTD as soon as we were cleared to about a week after the D&C... Maybe it's just one of those weird things that occur...

  • Thanks everyone for your comments! It sounds like several of us have random spotting after the loss and it isn't as rare as I thought. I'm glad we're all together in this.

  • I'm sorry.  Miscarriage can really throw a monkey wrench is your cycle and make things really strange.  Your body could just to readjusting itself.  If you are really concerned or it becomes heavy or red, then I would call your OB.  Otherwise, I wouldn't worry.

  • I'm sorry. I know how frustrating this is. I had mid-cycle spotting last cycle and this cycle. Prior to that I've had a tiny bit of spotting the day of O a few times, but nothing like this. It was 5 days last cycle and 3 days this cycle. It was close to O time, but not exactly during O. I talked to my dr about it and she said it was nothing to worry about in my case as long as it's around O. Obviously you'd have to talk to your own dr about your case, but just thought I'd share my experience.

    Good luck!


    This ! And also it could be that when you are having sex, you are irritating your cervix, or it could just be random spotting..
    I'm not going to even touch the fact that you phished about implantation spotting.

  • I think the fact that it's light brown/tan means that it's likely just old blood leftover from AF??  Just a thought! 

    I have always had pretty crazy AFs when not on BCP, so I have been known to have cycles where I spot the entire time, so it doesn't seem weird to me that you would spot after you DTD with your DH every time.
