Doubtful: If you are referring to 15 days post ovulation, bleeding at this point is usually the beginning of your period. If you period is abnormal in any way, you should consider checking a pregnancy test and seeing your doctor.

Can you please define implantation bleeding?

Placenta implant: When the placenta implants into the inside lining of the uterus it's like a plant growing roots. Maternal blood can leak out during this process and scare women that they may be having a miscarriage. 1st trimester bleeding occurs commonly in 25% of pregnancies, but only results in miscarriage in about half of theses cases. A visit to your OB and a pelvic sonogram is the evaluation needed.

Yes: Implantation bleeding occurs at the time that the early pregnancy "burrows" into the endometrium of the uterine wall. It usually occurs around 6-8 days after ovulation or cycle day 21 of a 28 day cycle. The amount and color of the bleeding are variable, but it is harmless. Progesterone levels should be +/- 20 ng/ml around this time of the cycle. In repeat miscarriage check Progesterone levels..

No bleeding: If you have a normal implantation, you should not see any bleeding. If you think you are pregnant and are having bleeding, you may be experiencing a threatened abortion or miscarriage. Visit your doctor for further evaluation.

Pregnancy test: A pregnancy test at the time your period is due will answer that question. Implantation typically occurs about 8 to 10 days after conception, which should be about 4 to 6 days before the period is due. Implantation bleeding will usually happen within about 14 days of implantation. So, by the time your period is due, a pregnancy test will be positive if you have conceived.

Not: Implantation bleeding is sporadic and unpredicatble, doesn't happen at all in most cases. No, it's not like a period - bleeding that heavy is unlikely 'implantation, ' could be breakthrough or other reasons.
