To think this cant possibly be an actual period

Am on cd 12 and have had a bleed this afternoon. It's more than spotting and is more red than pink but less than a period, so far anyway, and no pain or cramps, agin, so far.

I have a 26 day cycle. Lifestyle wise I have recently started quite a heavy exericise regime.

This is almost certainly ovulation, right? Its just its heavier than I have seen ovulation spotting described but its bang on time for it. I've never had o bleeding or spotting before.

For shallow and selfish reasons I really need this not to be my period.

Any chance you could be pregnant

No chance I'm pregnant. Husband had vasectomy 4 years ago and not had sex with anyone else.

Mid cycle bleeding is v common, esp as you get older. But you might want to get any change checked out. How old are?
