I had a positive on an OPK 3 days ago but this morning I am spotting. Does this mean the egg has just released and I should have sex or its implanted?

In brief: Ovulation

Implantion occurs more like 2 weeks after ovulation if the egg has been fertilized.
Spotting 3 days after a positive ovulation predictor kit is more likely to be due to the hormonal swings associated with ovulation. Hope this helps.
