I’m 33 , I am not on any contraception to regulate my cycle. I have spotting every other month in between my 28 day on day 23 then have a full cycle on the 28th day . The spotting only tends to be when I put pressure toopen my bowel

The spotting isn’t until day 23 since my last cycle and then after a few days I will have a full five day cycle this only tends to be every other month , am o correct in thinking that every month a different ovarie releases a egg

Thank you for waiting.

I understand your concern.

Normal menstrual cycle varies from 21 days to 35 days.

Some changes in cycle can be possible normally.

There can be differences in maturation of follicle.

As you do not have any other symptoms, I feel you need not worry.

I hope this information will be helpful.

If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

Your satisfaction is my goal.

Apologies what do you mean a maturation of follicle

Every month there is maturation of follicles in ovary going through follicular to luteal phases.

In this process, there can be a variation & consequent changes in hormone levels.
