Can you get implantation bleeding 19 days after conception? I had a small red speck of blood. Please help

Yes...: Implantation bleeding occurs 10 - 14 days after conception and is relatively common. It is thought to happen when the fertilized egg attaches to the lining of the uterus, usually around the time you would expect to have a menstrual period. Given the difficulty in knowing exactly when conception occurs, I would say that your day 19 is feasible, so yes. Not time to worry. Congratulations! ...Read more

I'm not sure if it's implantation bleeding or not. It's red but turns brown no cramps or nothing.

See below: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 2-3 weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.

Iam 15dpo, also it is my due date for af, spotted couple of dots of bright red bleeding with brown since 4am today. Is it implantation bleeding or af?

Not implantation: Implantation bleeding occurs about 1 week after ovulation, if it occurs at all. Bleeding 15 days after ovulation is much more likely to be either a period or possibly early pregnancy bleeding. It may also be possible that you didn't ovulate, and that can result in bleeding not like a period. ...Read more

If my bleeding on placebo week is very light compared to usual, could that be implantation bleeding? It's not pink, but it is brown/ red sometimes.

If my bleeding on placebo week is very light compared to usual, could that be implantation bleeding? It's not pink, but it is brown/ red sometimes.

More likely pills: If you're taking your birth control pills correctly you shouldn't have implantation bleeding since the chance that you are pregnant is very low. The low dose pills in use today do not stimulate much growth of the uterine lining and so periods are generally much lighter and commonly become lighter over time as you continue using the pills. Hope this helps. ...Read more
