Twinkle-Toes Turner:  It’s different for everyone unfortunately.  Try reading Taking Charge of Your Fertility and check out fertilityfriend.com for informaiton on cycles and temping.  Ovulation predicters never worked for me so I had to chart temps and fertility signs to figure out my O date.

Twinkle-Toes Turner:  I don’t know that the spotting you’re describing sounds like a normal period to me, so I disagree with your doctor (also, that statement is just plain wrong, it’s possible to have what’s called an “anovulatory cycle” which means you go through a full cycle without ever ovulating, and you still get what looks like a period).  If I were you, I’d start charting my basal body temperature – that will tell you for sure whether you are ovulating or not.  If you’re not, then you have some more data to take to your doctor (or to a new doctor) and get some help.

If you do start temping, feel free to join or pop into the charters thread!  We’re always happy to take a look at a chart or answer anyone’s questions 🙂
