In my honest opinion, if you are expecting a period to come around on the 17, and have a regular 14 day luteal phase (time between ovulation and next period) I think that if you are experiencing spotting today, it is too early for implantation bleeding. Implantation if I am not mistaken usually occurs closer to 8 or more days past ovulation, and you would be only about 4.

I hope things go well for you though. Lots of things can cause minor spotting in a healthy cycle, so I wouldn’t worry or stress. And that doesn’t mean you won’t become pregnant, either. 🙂 

 

ETA, this information came up in one of the first links from google. Hope to help.

Fertilization happens in the fallopian tube, and the fertilized egg then travels for about 5-6 days down the fallopian tube towards the uterus.
Implantation happens when the fertilized egg arrives in the uterus and attaches to the uterine lining. Implantation occurs on average 9 days after ovulation and fertilization, it can happen as early as 6 days after ovulation until 12 days after ovulation

The timing of implantation spotting is within a day or so after implantation, about 9-10 days after ovulation and fertilization. Implantation happens between 6 and 12 days after ovulation, so about 9-10 days after ovulation would be the right time for implantation bleeding and spotting.
A blood pregnancy test can be positive about three to four days after implantation and a urine pregnancy test will be positive about five to six days after implantation.”

Actually pregnant women can still get and sometimes do need pap smears. Talk to and trust in your Dr. 🙂

@hismm:  You shouldn’t always trust your doctor. You should also do research on your own. Chances are it’s just spotting randomly. Personally, I would not let them do a pap in the first tri because I know I get severe cramping after and I don’t want it to hurt the baby.

@glittermoon:  But I was just letting OP know it is an option and wouldn’t want her feeling anxious. Self education and advocating is very important, but if we knew everything or could treat ourselves, there would be no doctors.
