Some background: I have 2 kids, was on BCP for 11 years before kids, did charting to avoid between kids, and got a copper IUD after baby 2 (1 year ago). Pre kids, and between kids I never got ovulation spotting. Now, since I got my period back post-baby 2 (8 months ago), I have had heavy ovulation spotting every month. Like the equivalent of a light/medium period day – enough that I definitely need a pantyliner, maybe could even do a tampon. It seems like a LOT. Does this sound normal?? Do you think it’s related to the IUD, or having babies, or just getting older? Do you think ovulation spotting is related to hormonal changes at all? I’m probably completely over-analyzing, but I’m wondering if it signals a decline of fertility? I’m not getting any younger…(will be 34 in a couple weeks). I will be getting the IUD out in a month to try for baby 3, so I’m overthinking everything. 🙂 Any thoughts on what it might mean, or similar situations?
