I had a tubal ligation in Jan 07, during a c section of my 5th child. Prior to the tubal I have experienced "ovulation spotting" where when I ovulate i get dark reddish/brown spotting. Then it turns into the thin mucousy discharge and my cervix drops so I am fairly confidant that I am ovulating. I breastfed until early august and got my first "normal" period in September. During this period I didn't have my previously normal ovulation spotting. Also no ovulation spotting in October cycle. I have roughly a 23-25 day cycle. My question is this: If my tubes are now blocked/severed/etc., is it possible to still have this "ovulation spotting"? My LMP was Nov 12 07 and on Nov 26 I had my "ovulation spotting". I called my OB/GYN and she said to call back if my period is late or I get a positive pregnancy test. By getting the tubal, a positive pregnancy test is what I was trying to avoid. Any input would be appreciated.
