Implantation bleeding or serious problem?

FINALLY ovulated after 3 months! Had brown spotting night of day 5. I felt wet and felt it come down. I also had mild cramping. That was it- no other bleeding. I know 5dpo CAN be possible, but average is 7-12dpo. But also read it lasts a few days? 

Since this is my first O since March, maybe my body reacted negatively to something and I bled? I heard that a 2nd estrogen surge could create that true? Though I'm not religiously bbting at same time, i didnt notice any significant temp drop, and it is still at post-o temps.

Am I wishful thinking that it was early implantation bleeding or did something else cause the spotting?

If it was implantation bleding, how soon could i take a prego test?

My DH and I have bern trying for almost 2 years, and were just about to start treaments--i sure hope not!

I'm starting to lean more toward it being a fluke though since it was so early and only spotted for short time. But confused by the cramping. I don't want to start treatment! :(

What do you think?

It could just be an irritation or a total fluke that you had spotting.  I think it's a great sign that your temps are still up.  Are you noticing any other signs?
