I had a tubal done in January '07 during my c section for my fifth child. I was not happy about the situation, but it was for health reasons. Namely, if I were to get preggo again there would be a good chance the baby or myself would not make it. Before the tubal I always got "ovulation bleeding". When I would ovulate I would get a little crampy on one side then spot brownish blood w/in a day. Then it would go to the mucousy white discharge and my cervix would drop, so i KNEW I was ovulating. My LMP was November 12 '07 and I normally have a shorter cycle, 22-24 days. November 26th I had my usual "ovulation spotting", my question is this. If my tubes are no longer connected, where did the spotting come from? Is it possible to still have ovulation spotting after a tubal ligation? I am a little confused and have actually been avoiding intercourse with my husband, just in case I am still fertile. Any input would be appreciated.
I know I am still ovulating...and my doc doesnt really want to see me unless I have a positive pregnancy test. What she fails to realize is that a positive pregnancy test is what I am trying to avoid. After 5 kids all 5 yr and younger, my husband would disown me if I ended up pregnant....
I am just wondering where the spotting came from....hmmm?
you could still be ovulating the only thing i can think of is buy ing opt and checking next month that way you know then you can explain this to your doc or fine a better one who will take your health more serously
