Any one else spot at or around ovulation? I am at that point in my cycle and spotted a little yesterday (after intercourse) and today. ...
I've read that alot of women have gotten pg on the cycle they had ovulation spotting...

I experienced this last month but I was TTA.

I have Taking Charge of Your Fertility book and it says this about midcycle spotting:

"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

Hi,
I had O spotting this cycle for the first time ever. It wasn't 'normal' spotting though, more like a thin line of red when I wiped. But I also had bad cramping and a back ache as well as a temp dip that day so I know it was my O day. The other thing I had this cycle for the first time ever was a full week of EWCM. This is really unusual for me, normally I barely even get EWCM at all.
You've gotten me all excited now! I hope that's true!

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).

thank you so much for having this discussion.

I have been trolling the internet trying to find out why I just spotted - day after O. I just joined this site and already it has been more useful than several others I have found!

Here's to hoping!
