Spotting Days After AF gone??
Tue, 05-11-2010 - 7:06pm

I am hoping someone can help me out.

I have been charting here and there for a couple months.I charted before TTC my daughter and got pregnant the 2nd cycle. Now I am thinking about having another next year so am charting again.My cycles are really short 24-26 days with a 12 day luteal phase. I have noticed my last two cycles that I had my usual 4 day AF.Light-Heavy-Light-Spotting. Then AF was over.Two days later I got brown spotting for 3 days-not just a tiny bit either-it was there pretty much every time I used the washroom.

I'm hoping somebody has some info-I have found info about implantation spotting after o,and that it also happens at the tail end of AF,which I normally have. But stopping AF for two whole days then starting spotting?

I am definitely not pregnant-my temps are following the normal low before o high after then AF plus I have not had sex during my fertile phase. So what is going on?

Thanks SO Much for your input!

Does this happen every cycle, or was it just one cycle?
