5 days seems a little long to spot if it was implantation bleeding.

Since you just got off the pill your cycles might still be a little off and your body is still trying to regulate. When I first went off I had a normal cycle the first time and for the past coupld of months my body has been all over the place.

I would take a test just in case, but just give your body a little more time to regulate.

Something similar happened to me this month. This is my 4th cycle off Nuvaring – the first 3 cycles were 23 days. This cycle I had brown spotting CD22 – CD24 before finally starting my period today. I’ve never had spotting before my period and would have tested if it hadn’t shown up. I always had M to H flow on CD1, so it was odd. I hope my body works itself out (and that yours does too!).

I would take a pregnancy test just to be sure, and if you’re not pregnant, talk to your doctor. If you’d like to have a better idea of what your body’s doing, you may want to start charting even though you’re not TTC yet. It doesn’t always give an answer, but it can give you — and your doctor — a clue to what’s going on.

I never spotted until I got off birthday control.  Then I did every month (it was always brown).  It’s been 4 days before, but never 5…  I always started my period after.
