Hi everyone,

I'm 43 and my AF's have always been every 28 days. I normally get a little brown spotting 1 -2 days before AF and then the full shebang. Here's my situation this month that has me confused. Last AF Oct. 14. Bd'd on 10/23,10/24. I'm pretty sure I O'd on 10/27 or 10/28. I had all kinds of pre AF symptoms last week, pink spotting on Wed. 11/3, 11/4 and 11/6. Just one or two on the pantyliner, except on 11/6 I thought for sure she was here. (tmi, sorry) So I'm thinking, AF is coming early (she's not due until 11/12. ) She didn't come early as I suspected. Has anyone else noticed mid cycle spotting as we get up there in age? I highly doubt I'm pregnant, but I'm very confused and cringing at the thought it's age. Your opinions are welcome. I've been checked and everything is normal physically. Never had any hormone levels taken. Maybe I'm pre-menopausal?

Lots of things can cause mid cycle spotting.
