Implantation Bleeding When Does It Occur
Implantation: Implantation is when the conceptus (from union of egg & sperm) attach to the wall of the uterus. Bleeding most often dose not occur with implantation.

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
No such thing: Imagine with me a fetus, smaller than a speck of dust landing on the wall of the uterus. This microscopic even does not cause trauma or bleeding. Rarely a female can get one or two minor spots of blood in this event but in general implantation is symptom free. There is no such thing as "implantation bleeding'. ...Read more

Not pregnant : 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 so 5 months ago is certainly long enough. The best time to take one is when you miss your period.

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. ...Read more
I'd ignore it: 'implantation bleeding' is subtle and unpredictable, if it can be interpreted at all. 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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: No - bleeding 20 days into the cycle would not be implantation bleeding. While 20 days could be around the time that the fertilized egg implants into the inner lining of the uterus, my understanding of implantation bleeding is the type of pinkish spotting that women may experience after they anticipated to come on their next menses up to about 8 weeks by LMP. ...Read more
Not really, ...: My answer is no, but it appears in some textbooks: the problem is the term has no exact definition, it's a throw-away for any bleeding in the 1st trimester of pregnancy. What women online seem to "think" - or hope - is it means bleeding exactly at the time of implantation, which is around 7 days after fertilization is absolutely not true. ...Read more
