I'm new here and hoping that someone can give me some advice that I can't seem to find when I search online. Here's my story: I’m 23 years old. I started to take BCP when I was 16 years old. I’ve been off BCP since February 26, 2008.
I always had a 28 days cycle before I was on the BCP. I was on the BCP for 8 years and always had a cycle of 28 days except for one cycle it was 29 days. I always started spotting 1-2 days before I started my periods. I started charting my cycle since January 2008 and this is what it looks like.
This is my 4th cycle charting.
Cycle #1: 28 days, annov. Start charting mid-cycle. Last month on the BCP.
Cycle #2: 28 days, annov.
Cycle #3: 29 days, Ovulated on CD16, 13 day LP
Cycle #4: 38 days, Ovulated on CD38, and in progress . . . .
My problem is that I started spotting most of the time after ovulation. And when I ovulate and I start my periods it is a length of 13 days I spot 7 days on my cycle #3 and this cycle so for I spotted 4 days.
What can I do to stop the spotting are do you know what it my cause my spotting.
this sounds like you need to get to your Gynecologist. Explain to her/him your cyles and he will be better able to say. Sorry i can't be of more help. Whenever I have problems like these I go to my Gynecologist to run scans and tests etc to make sure it's not pregnancy or some other problem.
I really hope that everything is OK with you. God Bless!
