Could this be ovulation spotting (16 days after period)?

I had some light spotting (16 days after period). I had sex on same day as the very light spotting and had cramp on lower right stomach ovary.

Is it possible I could get pregnant?

Or does the spotting mean the (egg) if the spotting was ovulation has passed?

Should I have had sex earlier before ovulation spotting ?

    Could be, or it could be spotting from recent sexual activity. Cervical irritation can cause spotting, too.

    It could be ovulation spotting, but there's no way to know. Spotting is caused by any hormonal change. Ovulation is just one of them.

    If you were fertile, you could get pregnant. Obviously.

    Spotting has nothing to do with if an egg is viable. Or if it was fertilized. Or anything else.
