Do you have any idea what is going on?
For years, my cycles were always like clockwork. 27-29 days. I would typically spot for a day or 2 before AF, bleed for 2 days and then spot for a few days.
A couple of months into TTC, I started spotting for 8-9 days prior to AF. After a few months of this, I went to the Dr thinking I had low progesterone. Had some blood work done, progesterone was almost normal, but prolactin was elevated. I had no symptoms of elevated prolactin, so I was confused. OB sent me to the endo. He re-did the blood test and it was normal. Spotting was now coming for 9-10 days prior to AF and in addition, my AF symptoms had gotten unbearable.
Fast forward to this cycle. After my 9 days of spotting, I only had real bleeding of AF for 1 day (normally have it for 2) and then spotted until CD 6. I had an HSG on CD 9 and then of course, I spotted from that until CD 12. I had very strong O on CD 14 with the strongest O pain I have ever felt and the darkest OPK I have ever had. I was SO excited and feeling so positive.
But then it happened. I started spotting on CD 16!!! WTF! I'm now on CD 22 and still spotting. I am pretty sure that I will continue to spot right up until AF next weekend. I am so bummed. There's no way I can hold on to a bean if I can't even hold onto my uterine lining!
I'm so tired of all this spotting! I only had 4 days this month where I wasn't spotting.
BTW, my spotting is always a dark pink/light red. I sometimes even get very tiny red clots in it. I know, TMI for some of you, but necessary info.
Anyway, I can not for the life me of figure out what is causing this spotting. But I know it's not good. Do you have any ideas?
