I have always had very regular periods (26-27days). I am currently on CD17 & for the past 2-3 days I have been having mild cramping & light spotting (usually only when I use the bathroom). I have never had this before...what can be going on?? Please Help!! Thank you!

Ovulation bleeding, perhaps? I'd imagine this is pretty close to your O time. I've never experienced it first hand, but certainly sounds likely that's what it is. Good luck. Anything different this cycle? Are you trying new meds for example? I'd hope it's implantation bleeding but sounds a bit too soon for that, unless maybe you O'ed around CD 11, which I guess is possible with your relatively short cycles. Do you know what day you likely O'ed this cycle?

no, that's the strange thing! I have only been charting for 2 months, but last month it was day 13 (possibly 14), but this month I did not notice the change in CM or anything like that! I did start taking fertility blend for women. Do you know if this can cause dryness during ovulation?

I don't know much about Fertilty Blend for women. I tried it once but didn't even finish the entire bottle. But I have heard from reading posts from other FB users, like Clomid, it can dry out CM. But I don't know for sure. So, you are charting BBT too this month, as well as CM changes? What have your temps shown? Have you seen a rise & elevation the past few days?

I also did not finish the entire bottle of Fertility Blend. I took it for about 10 days. I believe that it caused my breats to become VERY sore & tender & then I read a few things that it may dry out CM. I am still working on charting BBT. I am up at 5:30 during the week & no where near that on the weekend, & I know that can cause discrepancies in temps. I am trying to make myself get up early on the weekend to take my temp, but it doesn't always work out just yet. I have been paying attention to CM for the past few months, & until this month (when I started taking FB) it had always changed mid cycle. AF is due in 10 days, so I guess I just have to wait & see & keep my fingers crossed!

Yeah, charting is hard. I used to get up at 4:30 (based on my DH's work schedule) every day just to temp & then try to go back to sleep. I hated it. But the info was valuable. Anyway, good luck. Keep me posted!
