Does chocolate cause bleeding?

I've been having midcycle spotting on and off for years now. My three ultrasounds didn't show any abnormality. I noticed however that the spotting seems to be caused by eating chocolates because I keep track of what I eat and there is no bleeding when I remove chocolate from my diet. I would like to know if there is a medical condition that makes one chocolate-intolerant.

Welcome to this forum.
There is no relationship between chocolate and midcycle spotting. It can be a mere coincidence. Midcycle spotting is due to ovulation which occurs at that time exactly. Do one thing. Try some oral contraceptive pills for couple of months and see whether it can stop the spotting or not. Probably it will as oral pills stop ovulation. Try it following consulting your doctor.
Hope I can address your query. Please visit your doctor if there is any further confusion as without a clinical examination it is not possible to opine through an online medical forum.
