QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
Can you tell me what fresh blood in cervical mucus might mean?

I believe that I should be ovulating today and have been ttc since January. I have a close to normal 28 day cycle.

ANSWER

Usually, it's just a variation of normal, so nothing to worry about, especially if it is just a spot or two. I am assuming that you are under 35, but if you are over that age, then you should report it to your gyn.
