Dear Mel T
When the fertilated ovum attaches to the uterus wall it can cause a slight bleed called an implantation bleeding - this usually happens 6-12 days after ovulation. It is usually a slight bleed for 24 hours and may cause slight cramping. A heavier bleeding that goes on for a few days may be normal menstruation or a possible natural abortion.
