Hi,
Ovulation bleeding or mid cycle spotting is a term used to describe mild bleeding or spotting that occurs at around the time of ovulation. In most cases, this bleeding occurs approximately 14 to 16 days after the last menses in a normal 28 day cycle.
This is a normal phenomenon.
As you have given birth to baby 7 months before, your body is recovering from hormonal changes.
