Most likely just your period. But if you are concerned, just take a pregnancy test. They are pretty accurate when used correctly.

I have heard that spoting can be an implantation bleeding, if after a week you still havent got your af (period) take a pregnancy test to make sure.

Happy to help


It maybe Implantation bleeding don't stress cause it can cause your period to be late also your period might be late because of your age or diet. Go to the doctors or go and get a pregnancy test

Implantation Bleeding After ovulation the egg travels into the uterus and burrows into the lining of the uterus. For some women implantation will cause slight bleeding or spotting. This is called implantation bleeding. This is sometimes confused for an early period. What does implantation bleeding or spotting look like? Implantation bleeding, also called implantation spotting, does not look like a regular menstrual period. Implantation bleeding is scanty and usually pink or brownish discharge. Implantation bleeding or menstrual period? Implantation bleeding normally occurs a week to a few days before your period would normally start. Spotting that occurs around a week after ovulation is likely implantation bleeding; whereas, spotting that occurs very close to the time that your period would normally start may not be. A normal menstrual cycle generally starts off light and then gets heavier. Spotting can sometimes be the sign of an early period. If this is the case, the spotting will pick up to heavier bleeding. If you have spotting right around the time your period would normally start, it can be more confusing. You will need to take the wait and see approach or take a pregnancy test to determine pregnancy.

You very well might be. The brown spotting is most likely to be implantation bleeding which is very common.

This is more likely to be ovulation bleeding. Implantation bleeding normally happens around the time of your period, if you have a regular 28 day cycle. Hope this helps.
