Brown Spotting Before Periods
My cycles are usually very regular (26-28 days). But, I was was getting 3-4 days of light & dark brown spotting before my period would start. I had laporscopic surgery for suspected endometriosis in March & they found some mild endometriosis & removed it & I got pregnant the following month after the surgery. I had a miscarriage at 10 & 1/2 weeks.
Currently I'm on my 4th menstrual cycle since the the D&C for the miscarriage. The first 3 cycles were very heavy with 1-2 days of brown spotting before my period started. And, this cycle now-the brown spotting started 7 days past ovulation & I am on my third day of brown spotting & waiting for my period. Is this brown spotting an indication that the endometriosis is back already?
I have been taking vitex, maca, prenatal vitamin, & fish oil. I exercise 3-4 times a week & eat healthy. And this past month I did fertility massage & castor oil packs up until ovulation (which occurred on day 11) then after ovulation I started using the progesterone cream once a day. So, the brown spotting started 7 days past ovulation & today is the 3rd day of brown spotting.
Could the endo be back after only 4 months or could the castor oil packs & fertility massage cause a very short cycle?
