Welcome to ehealthforum.
Absence of periods, spotting before your expected period dates could indicate pregnancy possibility. Wait and watch for your periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. If periods do not start within 18-20 days after ovulation, or if you do not get your periods within 10 days of expected period date, or if you develop new symptoms suggestive of pregnancy, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
