Not really: Politely, 'implantation bleeding' is mostly an internet fad - 'real' implantation bleeding is sporadic and highly unpredictable, and 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.

Most often, women: Don't bleed with implantation. When bleeding occurs the amount of blood is miniscule. So, no -wouldn't anticipate an odor.
