a few more questions - strange cycle

Hi everyone!

Last week you were very helpful when I posted a question about high temps.

My cycle has taken another turn towards inexplicable. On Tuesday, CD 16, I started to spot. Spotting has turned into what seems like a full period, and my temps dropped on CD 17. I hadn't ovulated yet, but strangely my ovulation tests are still getting darker (though no positives yet).

I am HORRIBLY confused by this! Since it's not just spotting, do I reset to a new cycle? And what about the ovulation tests getting darker? Could I still be fertile? Is this strange enough that I need to call my doctor? Never have had my period in the middle of my cycle before!!

Thanks for any advice you may have.

I see you've decided to count this as AF, so I assume you must have started full flow?

Hi, yes - there's no way I can tell myself this is just spotting, so I marked it as "period."

Thanks for your reassurance, I was starting to feel like I would never be able to even TTC if I'd be getting my period each time I'd be approaching ovulation! Here's hoping for a more regular cycle 3!
