The spotting started 3 days after my period finished and has been like it for 3 days now. It is now a pick discharge. My ovulation test are showing as not ovulating and pregnancy test is negative still.

Hello, Spotting after the end of a period is a sign that the uterus has not been able yo expel all the blood during the period. Spotting can also be due to conditions like cervical polyps, cervical erosion, fibroids or infections.If the amount of blood loss during the period was normal, then the spotting cannot be due to a period.Please test for ovulation at aorund 12-14 days of your cycle this month.
