Female fertility and menstrual related issues.

Patient

Q: What could cause bleeding on the 17th day of my 24 days cycle?

Symptoms:  The mid cycle bleeding was preceded by lower back pain, mild abdominal discomfort and tender painful breasts.
Doctor

A:   Thank you for writing to us.

What you are having could be mittelschmerz reaction. This is a reaction which occurs during ovulation. The ovulation causes bleeding and small amount of blood coming from the vagina.

If the bleeding does not stop after a while, you should see a Doctor. Hope this helps you.

All the best.
