Spotting a week before period

Hi there :) we have been TTC for 4 months out of which the last 3 months I have been spotting like a week before my period. Along with the spotting I also get occasional back ache, cramps and boob tenderness. This is not usual for me, so it’s a bit confusing. I got an ultra sound and I have two fibroids on the outer lining of my uterus, my OB doesnt this this is the reason for spotting. Got other tests done which were normal. Has something similar happened to you and still got pregnant? Thanks!

Spotting prior to the beginning of a regular period is often a sign of low progesterone.  Did your lab tests check your progesterone levels?
