Bleeding like a period during Ovulation

I am really looking forward to having another child, so after 2 yrs of continuous NuvaRing and 6mos of Lupron Depot, I stopped 08/24/2014. On 08/27/2014, I got what I thought was a period. It lasted 7 days (it used to last 5). It was light and not much cramping. It was weird, but I welcomed it. Me and my boyfriend had sex everyday. I got the pain I usually get when I ovulate so I thought something would happen. No baby. Sept came......no period. I didnt get another period until 10/20/2014. This time My Dr. put me on a 5 day course of Clomid 50mg. The reason is because I have endometriosis and with all the pain, he wanted me to get pregnant quick so I wouldnt have to suffer. Now I know it will take time coming off of b/c, its just frustrating. No baby. I finally got a normal period 11/18/2014. It lasted five days and was its normal crampy and heavy. What Im used to. 29 day cycle. Here is where I get worried. 12/03/2014, 2 days ago, the day I am suppose to ovulate, I start spotting. I work at a OB/GYN office so I know about ovulation bleeding, and that this is normal, but this happening to me is driving me crazy. When I got home on the third, It looked like menstrual blood on my pad, but when I wiped, it was light pink, almost brown. Now Ive been told ovulation bleeding last anywhere from a couple of hours to 2 days. This is day 3 and I swear this is more then spotting. On a pad its like a period, but every time I wipe, there is light pink and brown. Im confused. My period is due 12/17/2014. I have talked to my dr and he says that it could be implantation bleeding. I dont know. The pain Im having is not cramps but lower abdominal and on my right side. It would be awesome if this turns into a pregnancy, but I cant hype myself up. I just want to know if anyone has been through this. I apologize for rambling, Im just worried I will never get pregnant again.

Hi msevababy

Thanks for your post! 

You're not rambling at all, I understand your frustrations. 

You have probably heard this many times but it can take a healthy couple up to a year to conceive. Since you have only been trying since late August.  Many couples will take at least 6 months to achieve success. 

I do hope other women who have been through this will respond to you. Keep talking with your doctor, keep trying for pregnancy and we do hope you'll have good news soon.
