Brown spotting after implanon removal. Was it ovulation spotting?

Hi, I had implanon removed on 4 march. It was my second implant but the second one in for only 8 months. I had regular periods the whole time on implanon. I had a period on 20 feb. when I had implanon removed on 4 march, the next day i had a very very slight brownish spotting for 2 days. This also happened the last 2 months on implanon. This was always 14 days from my period. Is it possible that the spotting was an ovulation spotting?. My temperature at this time on 6 march was 36.62. This was first day of taking temp so i dont know if it was higher the day before. it dropped to 36.41 on 8 march. My husband and I had sex daily from 26 February and right up to this light spot. We then continued sex daily until another slight spotting on 8 march. Is it possible that I ovulated on 5 march the day after removal? Conceived? Could that immediate brown slight spotting be ovulation implantation? Could second browninsh spotting be implantation bleed? Thanks

Return of ovulation usually occurs within six weeks in the majority after removal of the implant. The spotting you have been observing is most likely due to breakthrough. If conception occurs, implantation bleeding is observed around one week -10 days after conception as the embryo implants itself into the uterine wall. It is a fresh bleeding, not brownish but red or pink in color. It is difficult to say without a proper temperature record to say if ovulation has occurred. Recording of basal body temperature should be done systematically. You can test for pregnancy if you miss your period. Wish you good health.
