Does spotting a week before mc should start and a week after ovulation be a chance a being pregnant?

A week and a day from now i am expecting my cycle but starting yesterday i ve been cramping slightly on my left side and today I start spotting just a little on and off today. I look this up and it says it could be implantation. should i wait until next saturday to take a test?

  • It does sound like implantation bleeding.
    Although test now say they are accurate up to 5 days before a missed period, I would still wait until the day or day after you miss it. Just to ensure accuracy, and, to be honest, just in case your period *does* come you didn't waste a test.

  • How old are you? I have noticed that the older I get the different my symptoms are getting. I used to never spot before my cycle and now I do. I have also noticed that my cycles are a lot heavier. I do hope you start feeling better soon.

  • I am 25. I dont normally get spotting. I am normally like clock work. I am very predictable when it comes to that
