this is the 2nd cycle in a row that I've had spotting a day or two before ovulation. It's been either brown or very dark/ almost black. But it's definitely not bright red. Makes me think it isn't new blood. But is that accurate thinking?
Anyone else? Thoughts on what this could be?
I think of spotting as being hormonal, but could this be more anatomical... due to my cervix opening slightly just before I ovulate?
I've heard it said that usually, spotting in the follicular phase is due to low estrogen and spotting in the luteal phase is due to low progesterone. But what about right at ovulation? I suppose it could still be due to low estrogen, maybe?
would love anyone's insight
