Have you recently come off of birth control? Are your cycles typically regular?

Were you charting? Do you have a copy of the chart if you were?

could be implantation bleeding or it could be a cyst bursting.

i had that occur one cycle around the same time and contacted the RE immediately and they said you could have just developed a cyst that cycle and that it is bursting. and not to worry. it happens from time to time.

but FX it is IB for you.

It definitely could be early implantation, or it could be a cyst. Or you could have had a big estrogen dip. Did you have a temp dip today? Watch your temps over the next few days and see how it goes. I spot every cycle from as early as 3 or 4 dpo but I believe that was due to low progesterone. Maybe you have low progesterone? Could be any number of things.

Sounds like breakthrough bleeding from ovulation.  I had it on a few occasions which was totally not the norm.

Huh, I had this recently at around 7 DPO, and I was wondering what the heck it was as well. I guess it must have been a burst cyst. Thanks guys!

OP, hope you get an answer soon!

Nothing to add, just also wanted to +1 KatieBklyn:  I’m also crossing fingers that it’s early IB for you!

GrannyPantiesRock:  This happened to me 2 cycles ago. I don’t know the reason why. But at about 5 dpo I had bright red blood. Not a whole lot. I googled the crap out of why… most things suggested IB. About 5 days later I got AF. No clue why, but wanted you to know you aren’t alone. Our bodies do crazy sh*t when TTC.
