CD 72- light spotting, what does it mean?

rooni222 posted:
I wanted to see if anyone else has gone through this. Its been 72 days since my last period and I've boycotted all medications including provera. I've been spotting (brownish) since yesterday but as of now it has not turned into anything. I am not sure what this means. I dont know if i am just having an annovulatory cycle. Usually if i do have an annovulatory cycle i'll have spotting one day and it'll turn into a period the next day, but this is the first time its been just spotting for two days. Any ideas?
Thank you.

Some times I have light spotting that doesn't turn into bleeding at that time. I don't know for what reason really. Sometimes I have spotting for a couple days before the flow starts. I know you can have spotting for other reasons also. I hope it means your period is on its way and you can be on to a new cycle.

It did turn into a period, but my doctor thinks its just an annovulatory period... :(

Okay. I have those sometimes also. Do you chart your temps? That was how I found out I was even having anovulatory cycles. I thought I was ovulating every time, but after charting realized I wasn't.
