Possible early ovulation
I had my last period on the 21st March. I usually have a 29-31 day cycle and thought I would ovulate during the week of the 4-8 April. I then had dark brown spotting for one day on the 10th April, followed by 3 more days of very light brown spotting. I did a pregnancy test on the Tuesday, 18th April and it was positve. Do you think I ovulated the earlier? The only reason I ask is because I had a dental xray on the 30th March, and wonder if I had ovulated early. I'm assuming the brown spotting was implantation bleeding. Last question, can implantation bleedling last for more than one day?

Thanks so much. Your expert opinion will be greatly appreciated.

It is possible that this was an implantation bleed but you will have to do a pregnancy test to know if you are pregnant.
