Can Decidual Bleeding Occur In The Fourth Week Of Pregnancy
How common is decidual bleeding (percentage wise)? How common is a negative hpt test 3 weeks after period?
High ; common: Decidual bleeding can be lumped together with implantation bleeding and we can call them both "first trimester bleeding". I'd estimate 20-30% of women have some type of first trimester bleeding, and many go on to have normal pregnancies.
