Hi, is this a small amount of blood or full on period type?

if it's small.. could be good news.. could be implantation - especially as it's old blood... so you could be on your way to a baby! ;)

or.. if lots, then go to your GP to get some tests done, as there are many reasons for mid cycle bleeding, not all bad so don't be worried. but there are things like fibroids etc,
Get it checked out though.

((hugs))

Not to discourage you, but I had this happen every once in a while long before I was trying to get pregnant. I always figured it was just that the increase in CM washing whatever was left over from my period. Sorry if TMI. It wasn't much more than one panty-liner's worth, though.

Same thing is happening to me.  I had my first period since a miscarriage in late March, just 17 days ago and today I started spotting (mostly brown).  I'm hoping it's good news and not just wacky hormones!  Maybe we'll both have BFP's in a couple of weeks!! Trying not to get my hopes up, but it would be great!

Thanks you guys... i hope it is implanting and i could be preggo. in 2 weeks time.. but its been a long year of trying.. and this has happened once before.. pretty soon after i got off the birth control pills so i figured it was my body just regulating and stuff.. i will let you know... but i figured it would be done by now.. it started on tuesday morning and isnt a full out period but its not just spoting either.. its a decent amount.. and (sorry if TMI) but today it was a little chunky.. dont know what that means.. but thats for letting me know what it could be..

It is normal to spot during ovulation. It is typically a sign of fertile

Normal spotting is what may occur at the very end of your bleeding days. A day or two of spotting after 3 to 5 days of "bleeding" is normal, and just the end of the bleeding period.

Spotting that occurs in the middle of your cycle or spotting that occurs some ten to fourteen days prior to the start of the next cycle is normal too. This spotting may occur during ovulation. Seeing a spot of blood during ovulation is considered an excellent fertility sign.


It is thought that mid-cycle spotting occurs for one of two reasons. First reason is possibly that when the egg bursts through the follicle, a little bleeding may occur. This blood will then make its way out and show up as "spotting". Or, during ovulation, the level of estrogens rise, and this sometimes prompts the uterus to shed a bit of lining, which shows up in the form of "spotting."


Spotting that occurs about a week before the cycle is due - and only lasts for less than one day - is possibly considered implantation spotting. This happens as a result of the fertilized egg burrowing into the uterine lining. Or another reason for seeing implantation spotting may be due to a slight rise in estrogen and drop in progesterone before the corpus luteum takes over the production of progesterone. The corpus luteum takes over the production when the implanted fertilized egg signals the body that pregnancy has occurred and that the lining must be maintained. Keep in mind that spotting that continues for days is not implantation spotting
Good Luck and lots of baby dust

hi! I was going through your article. in end you have mentioned that continuous spotting for more days is not a sign of implantation. I was having contraceptive pills for last three years and i have left these medicines since last 7 to 8 months. this time I have my menses on my day that was 24th of June and on 13th day i again have a bleeding which lasts for half day. and for the next two days i have small spots and small clotting ... so what does it mean?
