Maybe just spotting: If the urine pregnancy test (to be done 3 weeks after sex) is positive, then the spotting may have been implantation spotting. Getting a positive pregnancy test is the way to tell. Because an emergency contraceptive pill was taken, the spotting is more likely not related to any implantation.
