hey ladies..was wanting your opinion.  i have had mid cycle spotting the past 3 cycles now.  it is normally only once or twice when i wipe.  im cd 15 today.  i always get excited that its implantation bleeding, but it hasnt been the case.  my question is, do you think the mid cycle spotting affects my fertility..im not sure what is going on with my body these days..but its getting frustrating ttc, and i dont think i can take much more of the ups and downs that go along with ttc and pregnancy.  anyways, just venting there, but appreciate any advice on the spotting..

It could be ovulation spotting. http://www.justmommies.com/articles/ovulation-spotting.shtml I'm not sure what else it would be.

It sounds like you could be ovulating.  I heard that can happen.  If your concerned, you could talk with your dr and see what they say.  Sorry not much help.  I hope it stops soon.

I have had spotting in the later part of my cycle and have been using progesterone suppositories that have worked to stop it.  Maybe you could have your progesterone level checked to see if it's low.  I'm not sure if the mid-cycle spotting would be caused by progesterone or not since mine has always started a few days past ovulation.

thank u ladies..im not sure what the deal is this month.  i had a 7 day period, and im on cd 16 today of a usual 27 day cycle.  i am supposed to start my 100mg 2x  day of progesterone on cd 18, so saturday.  i had the spotting yesterday, and was feeling moody and crampy.  then today, i woke up to what appears to be af.  this really stinks..oh well..what can i do.  i think i will call my ob next week to get some feedback.  this month marks my 6 months of ttc since we felt ready after my 13 week loss in march.

I had one weird cycle like that.  AF came then I spotted the entire cycle except for 2 days before AF showed up again.  It was the most frustrating thing in the world!  My cycles have been fine since then.  I hope you get some good feedback from your OB on what it could be and hopefully this is the only month it does it.

Yes I agree with Nicolle it could be Ovulation bleeding:) I wouldnt Worry about it unless its constant and EVERY cycle and if your super worried just talk to your doctor about the things that it may be :) Hang in there girly.

I don't think that ovulation bleeding wouldn't be going on for this long either, 7 days is a long time. I hope that it stops for you soon and you can get back on track.
