    Default 2 periods and a +OPK

    Just wondering if anyones had this experience also,
    I had a period a week or so ago, which would make me CD13 today,
    But i got a second period a week after the 1st ended, so that makes me CD3 today, and a positive OPK this morning (my 2nd AF ended during the night).
    This is my second month off the mini pill and ttc.
    Has anyone come off the pill and had two periods in a month also?
    Confused by the +opk as it would make sense if my first period was the "real" period as CD13 sounds about right for ov. But then whats this weird second period?? It felt and looked like a normal light period for me, but disappeared suddenly over night when I would normally get a few days of trailing off brown spotting to end a period.
    Is it possible to ov at CD3?? Even if its just the sign of ov'ing in the next few days it seems awfully early after AF?

    Have u got a pic of the OPK? Was the test line darker than the control? It does seem very early in your cycle ? How heavy was the second period? Could it just be mid cycle spotting and you're really CD13?

    Heres a pic. Its definately the same as the control, possibly darker? I would probably say the same as control.
    The second period was a decent period, i needed pads and changing every few hrs, it wasnt spotting. But only lasted 48hrs.

    Yeh I agree that looks positive. How strange. Hopefully just your body doing weird things after coming off the pill ?

    Glad its not just me seeing it as a dark enough line haha. Must be! I guess we just keep our fingers crossed and make sure to BD the next few days just to make sure!

    Post pill I got a week of spotting followed by a week of period.
    Idk for sure what your positive OPK means but you might want to allow your body another month to self regulate your hormones before TTC?

    Yeah its a good idea, its just so hard to wait haha.
    We're trying to BD every few days as the dr said thats the best course of action when ttc. She did say it wont be a problem if i fall pregnant right away and that its possible, but it seems unlikely to me that i would considering the hormones going crazy. Might just stop worrying about actively ttc by not doinh OPKs etc, and see an acupuncturist to just regulate my cycle.

    I get what could almost be classed as 2 periods every cycle. I get it from cd 1-4, then it stops for a few days and cd6 it starts again and lasts until cd10/11. I ovulate around cd12-14. I've got endometriosis and adenomyosis which causes my issues.

    If you've only just come off the pill, I would guess that it's messed with your hormones a little and caused it to happen.

    Gosh this sounds like me at the moment and I'm going for tests for endo :/
    I have had this happen many years ago and I still conceived so I wouldn't say you should stop trying if that's what you want to do.
    I would say it's definitely cd13 and you are in your fertile time.
    My last 4 cycles have been similar. Cd17 I start to spot heavily for 10 days and then when it stops I go into my fertile phase, ovulate and then two weeks later cd1 again.
    I have 6 kids and I know my body.
    I got pregnant with my 3rd in a cycle just like this.
