Turns out that what I thought was spotting was actually the beginning of my period. It's been weird this month -- arrived 2 weeks late, and started out with light bleeding, and a mucus discharge. I actually felt a cramp on the left side of my abdomen on Day 3. It's actually gotten heavier since then. I'm on Day 10 now and it's so heavy... going to make an appointment with my OB-GYN (hoping it's not a recurrence of the frequent periods I had in late-2010, leading to no periods for the first 2 months of 2011).I hope medication like Provera and/or Clomid would be an option for me (during the time my periods weren't normal and then not happening, I was diagnosed with an anovulatory cycle). I thought it had normalised after I took Provera from March-June 2011... I'm concerned... Plus, I used up all of my sick days for now and will have to lose a day's pay (make very little money anyway)... But my health and desire to have a child are more important.
