No such Thing: There is no such thing as "implantation bleeding'. This is a myth spread on the internet. Pregnancy causes the ceasing of any bleeding. Pregnancy testing is most likely invalid if done before one misses the next period. Anxious females have to wait till then if they do not want to waste money on an invalid test.
