I'm Peri-M! week long ovulation spotting - strange?

I'm 50 and full blown Peri-M. I've started to skip periods and when I do start they are much shorter.

I've alway been one that could tell when I ovulate. Mucus spotting, mid-cycle for 1-2 days has been right on the dot for me for many years.

However, this month, after I started (had a short period).....after about 10 days later I ovulated, and instead of it lasting 2 days it has lasted for over a week! I've had to wear a lite pad because of the on-going clear mucus.

I was curious to see why this would happened. I've never had that occur before.

Thank you for any information you may have!

Re: I'm Peri-M! week long ovulation spotting - strange?

Hi Cindylou2,

I too had the exact same happen to me this month. I usually have pain with my ovulation and a clear discharge that happens mid-cycle and lasts for just a couple of days. This month I didn't have alot of pain, but had a lot of clear discharge that lasted about 8 days. I remember thinking it was also too soon to be ovulating again. My last two periods were very mild and lasted only 2 days. Very unusual for me too. I also am 50. I think our bodies just keep changing on us and we never know what's going to happen next. Not quite sure what it means, but you're not alone!

Hang in there,

Re: I'm Peri-M! week long ovulation spotting - strange?

Thank you Missy! It is very strange, I'm glad to know I'm not alone. It freaked me out a bit, ususally the ovulation (clear mucus) would last only 2 days at the most. This month is has kept on and on and on. I was wondering if it would ever let up, LOL! Finally after about 10 days it did. I'm curious what the medical reason (if any) would be, during Peri-M. Thank you for your reply!!!! I was so glad to hear from someone else that could relate!

Cindy Lou
