Spotting before period
Just wondered whether it is normal to spot for 4 days before your period actually starts? I read on the internet that this might be because of a lack of progesterone which in turn can lead to minor infertility. I've had this spotting for 4 months now and TTC.

You neeed to give it a bit longer. Only if you have not fallen pregnant in a year, would it suggest a problem.

Best wishes
