Bleeding around ovulation

Let me start by saying I am trying to get pregnant.
My last period started April 7 and my predicted ovulation date is April 23. I had unprotected sex on April 16, 17, 18, 19.
On April 19 and 20 I had a couple drops of dark red blood but assumed it was from rough sex. Yesterday (21st) I used the hitachi and afterwards when I peed there was a streak of pink floating blood in the toilet. Today every time I pee the water is brownish red, I have had a little blood on my panties, I have very little discharge and it is dry. I'm not sure what is going on.

Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

Bleeding during ovulation is normal.  Small flow, spotting, light pink discharge lasting for only a couple days are typical signs.  But in some cases it can be cause for concern if your discharge heavy or your experiencing pain or if it continues for more than one cycle.

You mentioned you are trying to get pregnant, how exciting for you!  But I'm wondering, were you previously on birth control?  And if so, what type of birth control?  If you were previously taking birth control, your body could still be adjusting to the decrease in hormones and could be causing the symptoms you are experiencing as well.

Here is some additional resources for you to explore:

I wish you well on conceiving.  I hope this information is helpful.

Be well,
