There are no answers, that is why you do not see any. Every woman is unique.the spotting could have been from a micro tear or hitting your cervixduring sex. Ovulation itself only lasts 15 minutes. So it should be just a small amount of spotting for a very short period of time (an hour or two).

Statistically,you have a 95% chance of ovulating between 12 and 16 days before your next period. Add 2 days after that, and 2 days before that (so from 18 days before, until 10 days before your next period) for the time you may be fertile. More sex closer to the beginning (17 to. 13 days before your next period) is better rather than later. Remember that his sperm will hang around for about 5 days waiting for you to ovulate. The most fertile sex is a day or two before you ovulate.

It does sound like you had the fertile mucus.

So if you ask me, have some lustful animal sex (if you understand what I mean) tonight. If it is catching an egg, so much the better. That way you break some of the monotony of the baby making sex. Trying for a baby can get very boring. You both need some sex for the sake of love and lust as well. Researchers found that when a man is aroused more and for longer, his sperm quantity and quality is better, so try to break the monotony from baby making sex, even when you know you are fertile.

Best of luck TTC!
