Implantation (Definition)

Many think of it as 'sticking.' implantation in humans always occurs when the embryo is between 6-7 days old.

Dpo, I have a lot of symptoms but no implantation bleeding is that normal?

Dpo, I have a lot of symptoms but no implantation bleeding is that normal?

I'd ignore it: 'implantation bleeding' is subtle and unpredictable, if it can be interpreted at all. Internet gossip over-emphasizes the idea of 'implantation bleeding.' Implantation begins 6-7 days after fertilization, so that's the only time you would see it. Non-medical people sometimes refer to any early pregnancy bleeding as implantation bleeding, but this is not a defined medical term.

How long does implantation bleeding last? How heavy is it supposed to be. What other symptoms do you have when this happens?

Internet Myths: A fetus, implanting on the wall of the uterus is the size of a speck of dust or smaller. It does not cause any symptoms and does not cause 'bleeding'. Rarely some women do see a speck of blood during this period of minutes or hours of implantation, but, in general early pregnancy is symptom free and without 'bleeding'. Pregnancy stops vaginal bleeding.

What are the signs and symptoms of implantation bleeding?

Most often: There is no bleeding with implantation. You don't feel it implant. When there is bleeding it is usually a miniscule amount. May be a pink swirl in white discharge or a small tint of orangish brown.

Take a test: If you think you might be pregnant check then check a home pregnancy test. They are cheap, reliable and available at any pharmacy. If your symptoms are caused by pregnancy then that means your hormone level would be high enough for detection

Deep breaths :): Question: have you resumed normal cycling after finishing DMPA? If not, June 8th is not likely to be optimal for conception, it is random. I hate being the bearer of bad news but: 1) symptoms tell you nothing about conception, 2) and 'implantation bleeding' is 99% fiction. I know many online say different. Do not get discouraged, re-establish a normal cycle, and try again. Good luck!

Is now the 12th day since we had unprotected sex during her first day of menses, no signs of symptoms, no implantation bleeding. Can she get preg?

Pregnancy unlikely: Having unprotected intercourse on day one of menstrual period is very unlikely to produce pregnancy, however it is not impossible if the bleeding was not because of a normal cycle. To prevent pregnancy and to protect against std's, it is always best to use protection.

How do I know if I have implantation bleeding?

How do I know if I have implantation bleeding?

No such thing: The egg is microscopic when it lands on the wall of the uterus. There is no such thing as implantation bleeding. If you have bleeding this is not representative of pregnancy. A spot or two of blood is rarely seen, but not bleeding.

Could I be experiencing implantation bleeding?

Could I be experiencing implantation bleeding?

Implantation bleed: Implantation bleeding happens 6-7 days after ovulation. Ovulation for mos women happens between days 12-16 from the first day of the period, on average 14 days. Therefore implantation bleeding can occur sometime between day 18 at the earliest and 22 at the latest (days 19-20 for most women). Of course there are exceptions but this applies to most regularly menstruating women.

How worried should I be if implantation bleeding looks heavy?

How worried should I be if implantation bleeding looks heavy?

Likely breakthrough: It's almost never implantation bleeding, that is largely an internet myth. If - a big if - you actually get implantation bleed it woudl be very light and about 6-7 days after ovulation, or about a week before your expected period. So, I wouldn't worry.
