So over the last few months (since my M/C actually) my AF has been 2 days of med bleeding, then spotting for another 4 days or longer. It used to be 3 days for med flow and a day of spotting at the end. But this 4+ days of spotting is really annoying. I hate pads (cloth or paper) and tampons are no good unless i have an actual flow.
I am thinking there is some sort of hormone imbalance thing happening, but I don't know how to correct it. Could someone please explain to me the roles of progesterone and estrogen on a cycle? I know one goes up as the other goes down, but which triggers AF and which triggers ovulation? And how can I make the first one come up faster to hopefully stop this spotting sooner? Thanks for the advice
