If you have irregular periods, can implantation bleeding come after your period is due?

If you have irregular periods, can implantation bleeding come after your period is due?

Yes: If your periods are irregular, you are likely ovulating irregularly. So the time an embryo may implant could be much later than normal. A pregnancy test should help you know what may be going on. ...Read more

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

I have irregular periods and I don't know if this is implantation bleeding or my period, I wiped and there was blood and it stopped, now today the same?

I have irregular periods and I don't know if this is implantation bleeding or my period, I wiped and there was blood and it stopped, now today the same?

Hormonal imbalance: If you miss your period by 4-5 days, do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine.
Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor.

I noticed I have irregular period, but had implantation bleeding and no period for 3 months, and still negative pregnancy tests. Is this bad?

I noticed I have irregular period, but had implantation bleeding and no period for 3 months, and still negative pregnancy tests. Is this bad?

Not pregnant: It is very likely you are not pregnant. Your "implantation bleeding" was likely one of your irregular periods. It sounds like you have had multiple negative pregnancy tests. That means you are not pregnant. See a gynecologist about your irregular periods. At age 45, you could be starting to enter in to menopause and that's the reason you're skipping periods. ...Read more

Implantation: Implantation bleeding is characterized by spotting; this occurs when the embryo implants in the uterus. However some women have more than spotting and the color can vary. Implantation bleeding typically occurs about a week after conception. I recommend you take an early prediction pregnancy test. If it is negative wait for your next period, and if you are late then repeat the test.
Best of luck. ...Read more

What to do if I have irregular periods and I never started tracking went 8 weeks or could it mean that its implantation bleeding.?

What to do if I have irregular periods and I never started tracking went 8 weeks or could it mean that its implantation bleeding.?

Confusing question?: Implantation is when the conceptus (from union of egg & sperm) attach to the wall of the uterus.
Bleeding most often does not occur with implantation. If there is bleeding the amount is small. It may be small rust or brown colored drops or light pink swirled in white d/C. It usually occurs about ten days after ovulation. There is more blood w period. Take a HPT if you miss your period. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Yes: Anytime a woman has sex it's possible she may become pregnant. Sex on the 19th may have been a quite fertile time. If pregnant from that day, a home urine pregnancy test would be positive by now. So if you're not sure, run a test. They are very accurate. ...Read more
