I'm getting spotting that starts with ovulation. It's pink then, and just enough to see when I wipe. Over the next several days it turns brown with small clots, leading up to my actual period around day 26 of my cycle, which can then be upwards of 4-5 days. I'm spending like 12 days a month with some sort of bleeding, it's driving me nuts!
I have a copper IUD (dh is scheduled for surgery, so it will be coming out in the next 6 months) and I'm nursing my 3.5 yo. I'm already supplementing with BComplex, Evening Primrose, and zinc.
I do have a physical coming up so I can get my dr to rule anything scary out, but I'm not in pain and she'll just suggest hormones or bc pills.
Suggestions anyone?

I don't have any suggestions, but I wanted to say that I feel your pain! I had a copper IUD for about 3 and a half years which was just removed last month (ttc again), and I experienced this off and on the whole time I had it-- bleeding/spotting of some kind for up to like 2-2.5 weeks at a time. If it makes you feel any better, the yearly exam I got when it was removed was all good... I guess it's just a really annoying side effect of an otherwise fantastic bc option. I'll be interested to know if anyone has any suggestions though, because I haven't ruled out getting one again after the next baby.

I agree it is just likely the IUD.
