Bleeding during Ovulation

Is bleeding during ovulation normal? Also, during ovulation the blood is brown, not really red, although sometimes it is like a watered down red.

Re: Bleeding during Ovulation

When you say "bleeding" do you mean a lot, like another period, or just a day or two of colored discharge? It is normal to have a mucus-like discharge during ovulation, although it is normally clear. When you have spotting, or a pink/brown or reddish discharge, you have a lot of estrogen. Estrogen / Progesterone levels change during the cycle, and the progesterone kicks in at ovulation, causing estrogen levels to drop. Too much estrogen comes from the diet - high in red meat, coffee, cola and other soft drinks, "junk" foods, refined carbs, processed foods, a lot of dairy. Try avoiding these foods, concentrating on a diet of fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, raw nuts and seeds. Add an essential fatty acid to your diet - either evening primrose oil (although some women don't do well on it) or cold pressed flax seed oil. Depending on your age, you may even need to add progesterone for a month or two.
