Sporadic spotting as a period? — The Bump
TTC after 35

Sporadic spotting as a period?

Last week my "period" consisted of sporadic spotting, and at times 12 hours with no spotting.

I have only started actively ttc last month so don't chart. I have been going according to cycle length, which had been consistent at 28 days for the past year.

Now I am in a pickle, would I be right in assuming that last week was the first week of my cycle?

  • Thanks for the response. I have taken a few hpts, all negative.

    To be on the safe side will make sure to get busy in the bedroom this week ☺

  • @gargoylemel is that a typical occurrence for you with only spotting and not having an actual flow with AF?
    I would definitely talk to your dr about that, sounds like you would benefit from having your hormones tested.

  • Have you been under more stress than usual or did you start a new work out routine? Those can both cause what you describe, but would be a sign that you probably aren't ovulating....happened to me one summer when I went from not doing anything physical to swimming every day.

  • Hey

    It isn't a normal occurrence, which is why I don't know what to make of it. I contacted my Dr, who basically told me to wait to see if it is a trend. So not all that helpful.

    As far as I know there has been no change in my life to cause a change in my cycle. The only stress / pressure I am under is the Dr giving me 3 months to fall pregnant before she starts prescribing clomed. Hence me being anxious ☺
