So...I came off bc pill in December, and since then I've been spotting in the few days leading up to AF. It's definitely been the case for my last 2 cycles.
Last cycle i had it 2 days prior to my AF due date, and this cycle, well I should be due (by my calculations) on Thursday for full flow AF but have had spotting since Sunday arvo.
It usually starts off as (sorry if tmi) brownish discharge, then pinkish & the it's actual red blood, but really only when I wipe & not like real AF.
I'm so confused, I used to think this was normal & used it as my warning signal that AF was on her way. But I've been reading that it may actually be highlighting an underlying problem. Like low progesterone, issues ovulating, pcos etc.
I can't help but freak out a bit!
I've been waiting to TTC for what seems like forever, and the idea of possible extra hurdles in the journey is killer!
I try not to think about it, but I just can't help but stress over it :-(
When I think back to when I was on the pill, I would have some breakthrough bleeding at times, usually mid pack. Drs changed pill types a few times but it often came back eventually.
I just reaching out to anyone that's been in the same situation, and if it did end up being an issue with the TTC???
Thanks in advance ladies
