Yes: Spotting at ovulation time is common, it is due to a small dip of your estrogen level during that time.

Possible miscarriage: Any bleeding during the first trimester should be investigated with an exam and an ultrasound. It may just be implantation bleeding, but it could also be a miscarriage or an ectopic pregnancy. If you are rh negative you may need rhogam, so please see your obgyn for a full evaluation.

Extremely rarely.: An IUD (intra-uterine device) is a very effective method of contraception. Though their reputation for causing infection still exists from cases many decades ago, currently iuds are very safe. It is very rare for an IUD to cause sepsis (a uterine infection that spreads into the blood and throughout the body).

Yes: Spotting during the early part of pregnancy is a relatively common occurrence. However, it important thing to be evaluated by your obstetrician to make sure that you are not experiencing a miscarriage, or that you do not have an ectopic pregnancy. The majority of patients who experience spotting early in pregnancy will go on to have a normal pregnancy, and deliver a healthy baby.
