Started spotting, believed it to be implantation bleeding, and now some clots are coming out, and the flow is getting heavier. Is this normal?

Started spotting, believed it to be implantation bleeding, and now some clots are coming out, and the flow is getting heavier. Is this normal?

Possible: Implantation bleeding is not really as common as the internet would have you believe. When it does happen it's usually 6-12 days after ovulation. A pregnancy test 7-10 days after unprotected intercourse is much more helpful. If you are trying to avoid pregnancy considering your age please see your doctor to discuss birth control options. If you are trying to get pregnant take a prenatal vitamin.

What is the colour of implantation bleeding? Is there any chance of clots are passed in implantation bleeding.

Color is the same...: The color can be bright red or brown - basically the same as if you had some spotting during your cycle. Others have reported cramping and more bleeding similar to a period. However, every woman is different and so it's hard to predict what will happen in your particular situation. The best thing to do first is an at home pregnancy test. Hope this helps!
