Okay, ladies that makes sense.
To answer your question regarding spotting, it was bright red spotting for the first two days then followed by two days of brown (old blood) spotting then on the next day AF arrived. In the previous month, the first day was bright red spotting, the next day was brown then AF arrived the next day.
This has never happened before, that is why I was so confused. But, what you said did make sense.
Thank you much.
