Question from Chelsea looking for reasons for spotting answers:

I “spotted” for about 2 1/2 days then it ended, my period isn’t due for another 1-2 weeks, could I be pregnant?

Brenda writes: Implantation spotting is my best guess for this. – Most often when a period isn’t due for 1 week or a little more, it is implantation spotting. This is when the fertilized egg implants on the wall of the uterus.

If you were temping you would find that your temps would usually have an extra leap at this time. If you were using a Fertility Tracker you would have seen ferning at the time of implantation which shows the surge of estrogen. Then it would go away again as a leap in progesterone would balance out the leap in estrogen.
