Ovulation: The shift or hormones at ovulation can cause spotting. The spotting is not necessarily associated with conception but if you had unprotected sex around the time of ovulation spotting does not rule out conception. If your period is late, check a pregnancy test and repeat it in 3-5 days if it is negative. Hope this helps.
