It's almost never

implantation bleeding, that is largely an internet myth. If - a big if - you actually get implantation bleed it woudl be about 6-7 days after ovulation, or about a week before your expected period.

How can one tell the difference between implantation bleeding and a 1st-trimester miscarriage?

Indistinguishable.

Open-uri20120817-15258-117qc3y
Going forward, these two possibilities are indistinguishable. Follow-up with serial pregnancy tests, or beta hCG determination in your blood will be the only way to tell if you are carrying a growing pregnancy. Take folic acid 1-5 mg daily - best of luck.

I have irregular periods so how can I tell the difference between implantation bleeding and a menstrual period? I'm 20 days past conception.

Easy!

Bleeding
the difference is a positive pregnancy test! At 20 days past 'conception' (though I don't know how you are sure you conceived, if you're not sure you are pregnant) a home test will be 99.9% reliable. Do one and good luck.

Dr. Timothy Brown answered:

Will an ultrasound know the difference between implantation bleeding and a period or would that cause my due date and date of conception to be wrong?

Confuses the dates

An ultrasound will measure the size of the pregnancy which will tell you how to interpret the bleeding. If it was "implantation" bleeding the pregnancy will be farther along than if it was a period. You will adjust the due date and date of conception accordingly.

What is the difference between implantation bleeding and period ???

Timing and HCG

Implantation
Implantation bleeding is typically seen about one week post-ovulation. Bleeding that is closer to two weeks after ovulation is more likely to be a period. Serum HCG testing would confirm that if you need to know: not considered clinically relevant at that point.

Implantation bleeding may occur 5-10 days after ovulation and is spotting. To do an HPT it is better to wait 4-5 days after a missed period. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions in the kit carefully.
