"About 10% of women will notice that they occasionally have a day or two of spotting about midcycle, right around ovulation. In fact, they may even notice that the fertile cervical fluid (esp the EW quality) is tinged with brown, pink or red. This is a result of spotting mixed with cervical fluid. It is considered extremely fertile. It's usually due to the sudden drop in estrogen that procedes ovulation and is nothing to be concerned about. If anything, it is a good secondary sign to record on your chart. It's typically more common in long cycles."
So this is a good sign
thanks for the info! Yes, i have long cycles. They are approx 34 days. That makes me feel better
Gillian, at first, I was a little nervous, because this is the first time IN MY LIFe I've noticed
O spotting...but the more I read up on it, it makes me excited , too! LOL. So many have conceived that month because it was almost a sure sign of O (whereas some months, especially for me ,the follicule never ruptures).
