This is my first cycle after having my paragard copper IUD out. I think I ovulated on day 12, but this is according to the twinge I always get; my cervical mucous doesn't seem the same as it was pre-IUD when I did NFP. I had textbook mucous then, with the dry days and the egg-white days. Since having it in 5 years ago it's been in the constant "tacky/ wet" phase. Any idea how long until I see cyclical changes again?
2nd question-- I had 1 bout of tiny spotting on cycle day 18 (the day, according to my "PG Day by Day" book says you might see spotting from implantation!). On cycle day 20, I had a few minutes of menstrual like cramps, but no bleeding yet (its been 12 hours, and a week ahead of when my period's due anyway). No nausea, breast changes yet. I don't remember having this spotting/ cramping with the first 2 pregnancies, but not sure if I'm just watching this one closer :)
Any thoughts on the mucous issue and the cramping issue?

I don't know about the mucus but I did have 12 days of implantation bleeding with cramps when I was pregnant with my daughter who is now 15 months. The cramps were strong enough that I took pain reliever for them. I didn't think it was possible to have cramps with implantation and I don't think my doctor did either but I absolutely did. Good luck!!
