Spotting for 3 days before period

Anyone ever had this? Talk about annoying. My midwife is going to order a day 21 progesterone draw for me this next cycle to see what is going on with this spotting. My LP was only 8 days long this cycle too. My period finally started this morning. Relieved but annoyed to have to deal with spotting for so long!

Yep! All the time. For me it was an indication of low progesterone. I took B6 and that seemed to help with the spotting. It is supposed to support the corpus luteum.

Yep, I've dealt with this too. I'm pretty sure it was because of low progesterone. It got better when I started taking vitex and b6. My LP also lengthed with these supplements.
