I had cramping at 3 days past IUI and light spotting on day 4 isn't it too early to be implantation?

I had cramping at 3 days past IUI and light spotting on day 4 isn't it too early to be implantation?

Ovulation symptoms: It's too early for implantation which happens about a week after conception or iui.

Spotting can occur from touching the cervix during the IUI procedure, or from a drop in estrogen hormone after ovulation until Progesterone kicks in and stops bleeding. Do a pregnancy test 2 weeks after iui. ...Read more
