    Default spotting

    Hi
    I have a question re spotting before period. It occurs approx 4 days prior to period every cycle. I am wondering if this would be due to low progesterone or possibly a lutal phase defect? I have done 1 icsi round - negative (spotting started 11 days past transfer - using progesterone pesseries ) and 1 natural fet - negative (spotting occured 5 days past transfer). Any info would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Default Spotting

    Hi kbw

    Spotting before the period may indicate several problems. Firstly, it may be associated with endometriosis. Have you had a specific history taken for this? Have you had a laparoscopy? Some papers suggest that there is such a condition as a luteal phase defect, and potentially, this may benefit from treatment with additional or extra progesterone support in the luteal phase. On a positive note, those patients I have seen with your symptoms who have either had their endometriosis treated and/or have taken addtional progesterone have all fallen pregnant.
    Good luck. Sonya
