Question Pregnancy symptom?

Is spotting a symptom of pregnancy? I've been off the pill nearly two months now (yay!). The first month, we used other protection to wait it out and see how my first cycle was, etc. I experienced no problems in that first month and had a period right on time.

Now in my second month of being off the pill, hubby and I have been trying. I should've ovulated earlier this week, assuming I'm "on schedule". I started spotting today. Not heavy, but spotting just the same. It's still too early for a pregnancy test as of yet, as I'm not due for my period for another week and a half. I've always heard that tender breasts are a more common symptom and I'm not experiencing that.

Just not sure if I'd be spotting now due to getting off the pill. I didn't spot the first month, so I figured I'd be fine. Anyone have any experience on this matter?

Hello! Spotting does sometimes occur when implantation is taking root but it can also be due to you stopping use of the pill, I would advise you to wait and see if you get your period and if not I would take an HPT. Good Luck

Spotting is light bleeding, typically between periods or during the absence of periods, such as in pregnancy.
