Customer Question

Hi all, I'm new to this. Me and my hubby have decided to try for a baby. i started my last period on may 1st and stopped the pill (yasmin) the previous saturday. I am due to ovulate tomorrow. I have been getting slight cramps all day and slight spotting. I am aware of ovulation spotting but never had this before. I was just wondering if you think its ovulation spotting or could it have been implantation spotting. We have had unprotected sex, is there any way i ovulated earlier.
Any advice would be welcomed

Mysticdoc :

Hello,

Mysticdoc :

Thanks for your question.

Mysticdoc :

This is likely ovulation spotting.

Mysticdoc :

Since you stopped yasmin a week prior to your period, it is not likely to become pregnant so soon.

Mysticdoc :

Usually during ovulation your basal body temperature increases slightly.

Mysticdoc :

There is also over the counter ovulation detection kit available to predict ovulation accurately.

Mysticdoc :

But given your description, ovulation can cause cramps and spotting which may feel different sometimes.

Mysticdoc :

Please be patient.

Mysticdoc :

You should get pregnant within next 3 months ( that is common after stopping yasmin).

Mysticdoc :
