Yes, I always spot first. My doctor said to count the first day of regular bleeding as day one of my period (of course that only matters if you are trying to get pregnant, so you can save that info for later)

Spotting after 4weeks pregnant did i have misscarage?

Does a week of spotting before a period prevent implantation when you know you have ovulated less than 5 days before the spotting started?

No. Spotting does not prevent implantation. It is often a symptom of implantation. An egg is viable (for fusion with a spermatoza) when the egg "drops" right up to, and including, when the period starts. So, if you had unprotected sex during your ovulation window and you have spotting, then I suggest getting a pregnancy test ... unless you had your period after the spotting events. The sequence of events that you describe tells me that you could have experienced implantation bleeding ... however, if you have not been sexually active, then this is not the case. Either way, if the spotting /bleeding changes in intensity /duration, have your Gyno check it out for you.

Do you get your period if you're on the progestin-only pill?

Some women have regular bleeding on the progestin-only pill, and some do not. Women on the mini-pill or progestin-only pill take an active pill every day; there is no pill-free interval. The medication's chief side effect and main reason for discontinuation is irregular spotting or lack of withdrawal bleeding (i.e. bleeding like a period). Neither the spotting nor the lack of withdrawal bleeding are a sign of pregnancy, unless you've missed or been late with pills, or unless you've had regular bleeding for a few months followed by a missing period.
