?: How long since your last menstrual period. Blood tests are very accurate , but, yes, it may need to be repeated.

Sure: Spotting does not always mean implantation nor failed attempt. I would wait until a missed period occurs before u test with a upt. You can overmedicalize, micromanage and stress yourself out. Good luck with getting pregnant, avg rate about 10-20% per month.
