Q: What does vaginal bleeding shortly before menses mean?


A: The first day of your cycle is the day you see bright red blood, not just brown or a little spotting. When trying to get pregnant, it's best to have sex regularly, two to three times per week, every week, not just during your fertile days. Even though it's OK to have sex daily during the four to five days prior to ovulation, studies have shown that your success is higher when you have sex regularly every week.
