Negative test but still no period but i little implatation bleeding could i be pregnant?

Implantation = pregn: If you have "implantation bleeding" it means you must be pregnant. Sadly, the internet is full of so much crap that so many women (maybe you?) are trapped in ideas like "implantation bleeding" they don't know if they are pregnant - or not. Do a hpt, find out if you are pregnant first - then can go from there - and best wishes. ...Read more

Don't know when I ovulated, but can implantation bleeding happen before a missed period?

Don't know when I ovulated, but can implantation bleeding happen before a missed period?

Yes: If you become pregnant, this happens about 14 days before your period. Implantation happens just a couple of days after fertilization of the egg by sperm, thus it could be a full week before your period that implantation occurs. If you have implantation bleeding - although it really doesn't happen very often actually- it would occur days to a week before your period is late. ...Read more

Implantation bleeding in your first pregnancy?....What does it look like?Can implantation bleeding come 2dys.B4.Expct.Period?.

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. Implantation always happens 6-7 days after ovulation, so if 'implantation bleeding' happens that's when it would be. ...Read more

Im 8dpo but still no signs of implantation bleeding can I be pregnant?

Take a test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

Can you have implantation bleeding at 6 weeks pregnant? How is this? I thought implantation bleeding would occur earlier.

You're right: Usually implantation bleeding is around the time of the "missed period". Your bleeding doesn't have to represent a problem with the pregnancy but I would inform your OB/GYN in case he or she wants to order additional studies to evaluate the health of your early pregnancy.

Can implantation bleeding occur after a heavy period? Are you pregnant if that happens?

Can implantation bleeding occur after a heavy period? Are you pregnant if that happens?

See answer: Implantation bleeding usually occurs within 7-10 days after fertilization and prior to the onset of the expected menstrual period. It is usually light (spotting), brief in duration, and is often un-noticed. If you had a normal or heavy period at the time of your expected period, then no pregnancy. There are always rare exceptions: heavy implantation bleeding and implantation after period can occur. ...Read more
