FRIGHTENED!!! - midcycle bleeding

posted 1 decade 5 years ago
Well, here's a little history. I had an ectopic pregnancy last year (very upsetting but I'm okay ish now). I rushed to my doctors today, absolutely terrified because I experienced some bleeding (WARNING!! explicit details coming now!!). I went to the toilet for a wee this afternoon but when I wiped there was quite a large amount of very red blood on the paper and when I looked in the bowl there was another blob there too!!
I am on CD17, I was due to ovulate 2 - 3 days ago. My doctor did a pregnancy test which was negative (PHEW!!! not another ectopic! Huge relief!!). It just seemed like a lot of blood for ovulation - isn't that usually just alittle bit of rusty red/brown blood?
I haven't had any bleeding since.
Any ideas? My doctor was very helpful with what its not but not about what it is???
Please help - I'm going out of my mind!!! Shocked

Hi hunny, welcome to JP!

I don't think it's normal to bleed at all during ovulation, I never have, although I do get very crampy in my ovaries.

Could it be that you are starting your period early?? I do on occasion get mine 2 weeks after the last one ended but I'm 39 years old and I think starting to go through some hormonal changes Shocked

Good luck hun, I hope that TTC works out for you and your partner soon... stay around here, you should get lots of support and advice!

Thanks so much for the reply. It doesn't seem like my period - I always get cramps and my cycle is very regular. The bleeding seems to have stopped - I think it was a one-off.
It's really really strange!!! Confused
