Same answer : Implantation bleeding/decidual is not really as common as the internet would have you believe.

How would you differentiate between decidual bleeding and menustral bleeding? How likely is this to interfere with hpt results?
Implantation bleed: Implantation bleeding is much more common on the internet than in real life. It occurs rarely and exclusively in someone who is pregnant. The only way to know if someone had implantation bleeding or just irregular menstrual bleeding is to wait and see if you are pregnant. If your test is positive then this was implantation bleeding.

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. We usually discourage pregnancy tests until the period is due/late because they are often negative until 2 weeks after conception (or 4 wks after the last period). ...Read more
