Possible: Wait another week and check first AM urine with home pregnancy test. It could also be dysfunctional uterine bleeding which is common with hormonal shifts even with stress. Trying to conceive can be stressful which works against you. Easier said than done, but try to relax. Many couples conceive after adoption because the pressure is off. Follow up with your fertility specialist, too. Take care. ...Read more

I doubt it: Theoretically yes, but most 'implantation bleeding' is really breakthrough. 'implantation bleeding' is subtle and unpredictable, if it can be interpreted at all.

You don't say when your last period was or when you expect your next one, that could help. ...Read more

No, it's not like a period - bleeding that heavy is unlikely 'implantation, ' could be breakthrough or other reasons. ...Read more

It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after a "weird" period. ...Read more

No difference: Its just two different ways of saying the same thing. How long it lasts is different for everyone.

So don't assume that it is just implantation bleeding. Best wishes! ...Read more
