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.

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

Not likely: Implantation bleeding if it occurs (rare) is not very heavy and not like menstrual flow. Menstrual flow can sometimes come a few days early and can sometimes be brief. This does not mean you are not pregnant. On day 24 post menstrual start you can certainly do a pregnancy test.

See below: Implantation occurs 6-12 days after ovulation. Implantation bleeding is usually just a few drops of pinkish to yellow or brownish blood for just a few hours. On rare occasions implantation bleeding can last 2 days. Implantation bleeding is often mistaken for the onset of your period. For more information see http://bit. Ly/1DOp6GL

Spotting; 10 days: Implantation bleeding is more of spotting rather than frank bleeding. You may do hpt about 10-14 days after that, though it would be better to wait 4-5 days after missed period to do the hpt, use first morning urine and follow the instructions in the kit carefully.

Can implantation bleeding last as long as a period?

Can implantation bleeding last as long as a period?

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. Internet vastly over-emphasizes the idea. Implantation happens 6-7 days after fertilization, so that's the only time you'd see it. You don't say when your last period was or when you expect your next one, that could help.

If you're pregnant..: "implantation bleeding" is not a great term, but refers to bleeding in early pregnancy. If you're late with your period take a home pregnancy test, and if it's positive see your OB dr to check that your pregnancy is healthy. If a urine preg. Test is unclear get a blood pregnancy test. If you're not pregnant you should get checked for causes of bleeding such as fibroids, polyps, or hormonal issues.

Can implantation bleeding have clots like a period? Can it be darker? How long does it usually last?

Not really: Politely, "implantation bleeding" is mostly an internet fad - 'real' implantation bleeding is sporadic and highly unpredictable, and doesn't happen at all in most cases. No, it's not like a period - bleeding that heavy is unlikely 'implantation, ' could be breakthrough or other reasons.

What could cause 4 days after having normal and on time period which ended, bleeding again 4days in a row? Could Implantation bleeding last that long?

No: There are many possible causes, but 4 days of bleeding 4 days after your period would not be considered implantation bleeding. Pregnancy, nonetheless, is one possibility.

I'd ignore it: Internet buzz over-emphasizes the idea of 'implantation bleeding' and how useful a predictor it is. I suggest a reliable pregnancy test 11-13 days after ovulation, you'll have the truth.

Implantation: 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. If it is negative then it is just irregular menstrual bleeding.

Test 3 wk after sex: Only a positive pregnancy test can tell a woman that prior spotting was actually implantation spotting. 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.

Bleeding on Depo: Implantation is actually rare and only occurs when you are pregnant. Since you are on Depoprovera it is much much more likely you are experiencing breakthrough bleeding -- a common and typical side effect.
