2 days late period and very light, lasted only day. Could this be implantation bleeding?

Pregnancy is: Possible - take HPT to know. Reasons for missed/late periods: low body weight, obesity, marked weight ^ or v, over-exercise, endurance athletics, breast-feeding, ^ stress, illness, eating disorders (bulimia or anorexia), anovulatory cycle (no egg released), travel, hormone irregularities, drug use, meds (i.e., birth control) or medical problems (i.e. PCOS). #1 reason is pregnancy.

Implantation (Definition)

One common meaning refers to the process by which an embryo attaches to the uterus of a woman so that she is pregnant. Many think of it as 'sticking.' implantation in humans always occurs when the embryo is between 6-7 days old. A very popular concept on the internet now in 2012, 'implantation bleeding, ' is speculative ...Read more

My period is two weeks late and now I'm bleeding brown blood. Could it be implantation bleeding or just symptoms of a late period?

My period is two weeks late and now I'm bleeding brown blood. Could it be implantation bleeding or just symptoms of a late period?

Actually either: Is correct. Some women will spot with implantation. Or you could have late period. If neg HCG then your period should straighten out over next few cycles.

I ovulated late this month so I bleed on the day I expected my late period but it was brown nothing like my period could it be implantation bleeding?

Breakthrough: More likely breakthrough bleeding if your period is expected in 4 days, this would be about 4-5 days late for 'implantation' if you're fairly certain of when the next period is due. In my clinical experience implantation bleeding is inconsistent, unpredictable, and mostly doesn't happen at all - even though it's all the rage on the blogs.

I'd ignore it: Internet gossip vastly over-emphasizes the idea of 'implantation bleeding.' implantation always happens 6-7 days after fertilization, so that's the only time you could see it.

Is it too early to do pregnancy test after 12 days of late period? Does everyone experience implantation bleeding? If yes, when exactly it occurs?

Is it too early to do pregnancy test after 12 days of late period? Does everyone experience implantation bleeding? If yes, when exactly it occurs?

No: Home pregnancy tests can show positive as early as 3-4 days after implantation. Implantation generally occurs 6-12 days after ovulation. So if the egg was fertilized right at ovulation and you used the most sensitive home test it could be positive at 9 days. On average it is 13-14 days after fertilization/ovulation when it is positive. Actually implantation bleeding is uncommon.

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.

My period finally came after 13 days late. How do I know it's really a period or implantation bleeding?

My period finally came after 13 days late. How do I know it's really a period or implantation bleeding?

A pregnancy test: If your period came 13 days after it was expected, it could be a late period (if you happened to ovulate late this month), an early miscarriage or tubal pregnancy (particularly if you have worse cramping than usual), or implantation bleeding (usually much lighter than a real period). Start with a pregnancy test. If positive or if you have cramping, see your doc asap.

Cycle day23 was Implantation Bleeding Now Cycle day33 period is 5days late. Should I test now or wait until my period is a full week late?

Cycle day23 was Implantation Bleeding Now Cycle day33 period is 5days late. Should I test now or wait until my period is a full week late?

Test now :-): The new urine pregnancy tests are very sensitive and should be positive 14 days after ovulation in most cases. If you are late for your period - I would go ahead and take a pregnancy test.

After 3 years of trying, I want to give up. I thought I had implantation bleeding then I was a day late. I started my period today. Any advice?

After 3 years of trying, I want to give up. I thought I had implantation bleeding then I was a day late. I started my period today. Any advice?

Seen a doctor?: If you have been trying for 3 years, are 25 years old (true?), it would be tragic for you to quit if you want a family. Have you seen a doctor about help? Online "research" is not the same; you need to be evaluated, examined, and tested and chances are excellent you can be successful. Good wishes.

Period is 40 days late. Have had slight bleeding only when I wipe. Bright red, for about 4 days. Periods are usually heavy. Implantation bleeding?

Period is 40 days late. Have had slight bleeding only when I wipe. Bright red, for about 4 days. Periods are usually heavy. Implantation bleeding?

Maybe not at 40 days: 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 missing a period.

I had 2 day short period (unusual). Used 4 full pads. Were late by just one day. Could this be implantation bleeding? (I am giving exams since a month)

Possibly: Any abnormal bleed needs attention. Report any pain, added bleeding, rectal discomfort to your doctor immediately. If one has no pain at all this may simply be stress related and should return to normal periods soon. But best talk with your doctor.

I had what I think was implantation bleeding over a week ago no period 4 days late but negative test results could I be pregnant?

May be: The timelines you provided do not quite add up. You may wish to repeat the pregnancy test in a week or so, if you do not a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
