I am spotting on day 17 of my cycle... Pretty sure its not

Customer Question

I am spotting on day 17 of my cycle... Pretty sure its not implantation bleeding as we haven't DTD in the past week until last night, can ovulation cause spotting? We have a 3&4 year old, and just recently got the nexplanon removed on 9/1/2016. Period started 9/29/1989. Do I need to see someone for this, or can I just keep an eye on iT?
JA: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?
Customer: 9/29 was the first period ive had in 3 years, slight cramping but not painful just random twinges more like.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Im overweight, no gynecological issues, both children were born via cesarean.
