Trying to conceive

I have been trying to conceive for about 3 months since having my copper IUD removed. This is non hormonal, so shouldn't have messed about with my body, apart from making my periods slightly longer.
I am currently having cycles of about 35-40 days, but 2 weeks after what I THINK is my real period, I have about 5 days of light bleeding. It is either bright red or brown, and enough that I have to wear a sanitary towel, but not as heavy as a normal period.
I would have thought this was ovulation, but it then takes another 3 weeks once the bleeding has stopped for my real period to show, which I thought you were meant to re-start your cycle 2 weeks after the day of O? I try and track my CM to see if I am coming up to O, but it is hard when there is blood, all I have noticed is that there tends to be lots of CM before what I think is my real heavier period.
I apologise if this is quite confusing - if anyone has any words of wisdom on the matter then I would really appreciate it..

What it does seem though is that this light bleeding is almost quite watery?!

I have no advice to offer but I would speak to a GP bleeding between periods should be checked out!

Thanks for your reply ChocolateCupcake. I should have added - I went to the doctors, had tests done and an ultrasound and no answers there. They didn't seem worried..

Glad they weren't concerned!, must be very frustrating not knowing why!, no advice here I am afraid but hopefully someone will be around soon that can help!
