It could also be the result of your contraceptive interacting with another medication you are taking. If you haven't been taking your ocp's reliably, you might have had an attempted uterine implanting that didn't hold, cause your uterus to cramp and expel it. ...Read more

Implantation occurs approximately one week after fertilization so the timing you describe is unlikely to be implantation bleeding. Good luck to you in having a baby. Make sure you are taking a prenatal vitamin to avoid neural tube defects (a type of birth defect). ...Read more
