Our expert says:
The most likely cause would be implantation bleeding. However occasionally a surge in hormone levels due to other causes such as ovarian cyst formation may also cause spotting at this stage. I suggest that you wait for your period to occur and should this be delayed a pregnancy test would be valuable. However if the pregnancy test is negative you should consult your gynaecologist to exclude the possibility of an ovarian cyst.
