spotting between periods

Hi, I'm new here and I have a question I hope this is the right forum to post in. Apologies if it's not.
My Dh and I are ttc our first baby. I stopped taking the pill a few months ago and I've noticed that around the time of ovulation I get some slight spotting.

Does anyone know if this is normal or should I be getting it checked out? Will it affect our chances of conceiving?

Thanks for any help

Amelia

Hi Amelia73
I got spotting mid-cycle all the time while on different pills, and also when ovulating off the pill, also the first month I was pregnant with dd1. certainly for me it was no big deal, the GPs weren't worried either, and I got pregnant easily 3 times. So yes I think it's very normal and nothing to worry about.

Spotting around the time of ovulation isn't unusual. It occurs because a bit of blood is lost when the egg bursts out of the ovary. I have had it but it was just a tiny pinkish smear, virtually nothing. It shouldn't affect your chances of conceiving and in fact helps you pinpoint when you ovulate. Spotting at implantation (about 7 days after ovulation) is also common. If you experience spotting or bleeding at other times (apart from your period of course!) it's worth mentioning to a doctor though.

You may want to make sure you are keeping up your cervical smears.

Thanks for your replies everyone.
Like you get gingernut it's just a slight pinkish smear not actual blood, sorry I don't mean to be so graphic. Hopefully it's the egg being released and fingers crossed I might be lucky and get pregnant this month.
Cam all my smears are up to date so I'm not to worried about that.

Thanks again.
