Mid cycle bleed- so confused


Hi there, this is my first post in this community but I have been reading through everyone’s posts over the last couple of months.

I have been ttc for 7 months now and usually my cycles are between 26 and 30 days. So fairly regular. This month started on the 1st and I got my first ever positive ovulation test on the 15th, which was great. But then weirdly on the 16th I started getting bad cramps and started bleeding.. I thought it was ovulation bleeding but lasted 3 or 4 days, so I’m not sure?

Anyway, I ended up feeling super nauseous over Xmas and was hoping that it was going to mean I was pregnant, but now on day 30 I’ve had 2 bfn’s. Feeling so confused :(

Hi I get ovulation pain the day after a positive opk no bleeding tho, unfortunately a lot of women get them symptoms and bfn test again in a few days if af hasn’t arrived if does that’s ok, what’s good news is you had a positive opk next month do the same sex before up to and after positive opk.

If you don’t get another positive opk I’d go see dr to get a progesterone test to make sure your ovulating.

Thank you!

Hi Katie, I have had mid cycle bleeding before, although not with cramping, mine was caused by a polyp, if it continues to happen might be worth going to gp. xo

Hi, is a polyp a cyst? I do think I have a cyst actually as I’ve had them before.. could this stop me conceiving? Thanks

Hi Katie, a polyp is just a small growth, I've never had a cyst,but perhaps that also could cause bleeding? I think there are other ladies on here who have had cysts so hopefully 1 of them can advise you. If it happens again it's def worth going to gp. If nothing else I found mid cycle bleeding very annoying and it took several visits to gp before I actually got referred to gynae, once I was seen by specialist they spotted the cause straight away xo
