light spotting after period
An_251237 posted:
Hello, I am nearly 40 and am noticing very light spotting and it is a week after my period. Is this just a normal change due to my age, is it a sign of ovulation, implantation? It's concerning and a bit annoying to say the least. Any ideas what this is?

It's probably ovulation spotting.
