This is not a period, it is breakthrough bleeding at your expected time of ovulation. It may be due to ovulation or a lingering effect of the progesterone. It can also be due to lack of progesterone in the second half of your cycle, due to your age. I'm sorry your iui cycle did not work. Hopefully you will be able to try IVF, it would be more successful at age 44.
