What exactly does implantation bleeding look like? How does it start? How long does it last? Is it different with twin pregnancy?

Brown.: Implantation bleeding occurs when the embryo attaches to the lining of the uterus (womb). It often happens 2-6 days after ovulation and can last from 1-4 days. It ia usually dark brown in color and no heavier than a pantiliner. ...Read more

Can implantaion bleeding last for 4-5 days. It started off with very little spotting then got heavier. Can that be implantaion bleeding for twins?

Can implantaion bleeding last for 4-5 days. It started off with very little spotting then got heavier. Can that be implantaion bleeding for twins?

Unlikely: Implantation bleeding is somewhat of a misnomer. Definitely most women do not have what could be identified as 'implantation bleeding.' the bleeding that you describe sounds more like a period. Why don't you take a home pregnancy test to see of you are actually pregnant? That will give you the information you're looking for. If positive, then make an appt with doctor for ultrasound. ...Read more

My cousin was told she miscarried one of her twins at 5wks, but the other survived and is growing. How is this possible with all the bleeding she had?

My cousin was told she miscarried one of her twins at 5wks, but the other survived and is growing. How is this possible with all the bleeding she had?

Not unheard of.: Most recent data suggest that many of us started our in utero lives with a co-twin that never survived to viability, or even detection by ultrasound. Losing a dichorionic twin and continuing the pregnancy with the survivor is actually a well-known outcome in multifetal pregnancies. The earlier the fetal loss the less severe the consequences to the survivor, because these insults are all/nothing. ...Read more

It's been 7 weeks since I had my C-section with twins and I'm still bleeding is that normal.

Where & how much?: Are you having vaginal bleeding or bleeding at the incision site? I assume you mean vaginal bleeding. If so, is it heavy and red or primarily spotting, reddish brown? While it is possible to have benign persistent spotting, if it is anything more, you should see your clinician. All postpartum patients should have a followup gyn exam 4-6wks after delivery anyway. ...Read more

CALL YOUR OB!!!: Your OB should have told you and u should have asked your OB about that before you went home from the hospital!

I got prg with twins and on us we saw 2 sac but 1 heartbeat. I'm bleeding slightly...no pain or cramp. Can it be the twin miscarrying? I must be 7 week

I got prg with twins and on us we saw 2 sac but 1 heartbeat. I'm bleeding slightly...no pain or cramp. Can it be the twin miscarrying? I must be 7 week

Yes: Bleeding in pregnancy can be a sign of a miscarriage but it can also be caused by other things. However, depending on how good the ultrasound equipment is, and how certain the gestational age, its not always possible to see a heartbeat at 7 weeks. Sometimes, it will be seen if you wait a week or two and and look again. Best wishes! ...Read more

Miscarried twin at 7 weeks and still bleeding a month in a half later. Obgyn said everything has passed so why am I still spotting this black blood?

Miscarried twin at 7 weeks and still bleeding a month in a half later. Obgyn said everything has passed so why am I still spotting this black blood?

But you are still: Pregnant right?? It is not uncommon to miscarry one twin. The cervix is probably slightly open and can leak old blood from the miscarriage. That is why it is so dark. It is not the baby but old blood from the lining trickling out. You are not at any risk nor is baby from this ...Read more

Just did a vaginal ultrasound. Found twins but no heartbeats. No heavy bleeding or anything. Could it just be too early to detect them?

Just did a vaginal ultrasound. Found twins but no heartbeats. No heavy bleeding or anything. Could it just be too early to detect them?

Unlikely: If the embryos are at least 6 wks gestational age a decent us should be able to detect cardiac activity. Hopefully it is earlier than this and a repeat will reveal good news. If not, follow up with your OB and remember that sometimes nature selects abnormal pregnancies or chromosome problems and simply doesn't allow a pregnancy to progress. Ie - there is no way for you to prevent or cause this. ...Read more

I just had twin boys via cesarean section and got the mirena iud as birth control I've had it for almost 2 month. And have been experiencing bleeding non stop no pain or anything just annoying bleeding is this cuz of my cesarean or cuz my iud?

The IUD: Mirena (levonorgestrel) is a progestin only method. As such, irregular bleeding is very common. For the first 3 to 6 months with Mirena (levonorgestrel)
• Your period may be less predictable than usual
• Bleeding and spotting may increase and continue to be irregular. Periods over time may become shorter, lighter or even stop
• Your periods may stop altogether for as long as you have Mirena (levonorgestrel) ...Read more

It hurts every time I've had sex, I never bleed. What does that mean? I have a twin & she never did either. What does that mean?

It hurts every time I've had sex, I never bleed. What does that mean? I have a twin & she never did either. What does that mean?

Misinformed?: One should never bleed when having sex. Bleeding would be unexpected, abnormal and represent significant problems. 20% of females do not have intact hymens and thus do not bleed on their first sexual encounter. But sex is to be pleasurable, not painful and not cause bleeding. ...Read more

I lost one triplet down to twins dr told me it will get absorbed I'm confused how is that possible and will I bleed heavily I just have been spotting?

I lost one triplet down to twins dr told me it will get absorbed I'm confused how is that possible and will I bleed heavily I just have been spotting?

Just spotting normal: After one triplet stops growing, your body will often reabsorb that embryo if it is still early in your pregnancy. The cells in that embryo break down, and your body reabsorbs the substances left behind. It is unlikely you will have heavy bleeding: spotting would be common. Good luck on the remaining twins! ...Read more

Generally short: Generally implantation bleeding lasts for around 24 hours or less; although, I have had patients that can bleed for much longer.

If it continues, consult your ob/gyn. Good luck. ...Read more

Very short: Implantation happens about 6 days after conception. In one study about 9% of women have 1 day of bleeding in the first 8 weeks of pregnancy.
