Can you have implantation cramps without bleeding and how long do the cramps last?

Can you have implantation cramps without bleeding and how long do the cramps last?

This may be a dumb question. But does implantation always cause bleeding? And if you get cramps, can they be a dull pain but still noticeable, felt?

I'm not sure if it's implantation bleeding or not. It's red but turns brown no cramps or nothing.

I'm not sure if it's implantation bleeding or not. It's red but turns brown no cramps or nothing.

See below: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 2-3 weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow 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.

I did IUI 7days ago & have been reading that many women experience implantation bleeding & cramps. I only have sore breasts. Do most women experience it?

Implantation: Implantation of the fertilized egg occurs about seven days after ovulation or IUI. Not every implantation causes bleeding, but mild cramping may occur and you may have just ignored it. Your breasts are probably not sore yet because of pregnancy, but just due to the hormones made in the after ovulation phase of your cycle. ...Read more

Ovulated 8 days ago had sex, started cramps 5 days ago steadily getting worse, started bleeding yesterday thick clots and reddish brown, implantation?

Ovulated 8 days ago had sex, started cramps 5 days ago steadily getting worse, started bleeding yesterday thick clots and reddish brown, implantation?

No: A woman bleeding "thick clots" from her vagina doesn't have to consider "implantation" as a cause. However, she can check a urine pregnancy test if she could be pregnant, and of course, contact her doctor if her bleeding of thick clots persists or worries her a lot. Home urine pregnancy tests are very accurate 3 weeks after sex, or 1 week after missing a period or having a "weird" period. ...Read more

9wks Preg. Had rough intercourse, adapted blessing at 3am. Same happened at 6wks but with cramps. Doc said it was, due to implantation tho. Why do I bleed?

Bleeding: During pregnancy the cervix becomes what we call friable, meaning easy to bleed. It is very common for women to spot after intercourse because of this. If you are bleeding more than just a little spotting after intercourse your OB should know right away. If it is like a period or associated with pain you should be seen on an emergency basis. Rough intercourse should be avoided in pregnancy. ...Read more

Period 11 days late. On the12th day I started to bleed very light and painful cramps (very odd).Today is the 2day an its lighter no cramps? Implantation?

Possibly: Menses can be very irregular for no obvious reasons sometimes. Still, your history could be consistent with early pregnancy / implantation. Any breast tenderness (this is often one of the first signs of pregnancy)?
At 11 days late, if you're pregnant a home pregnancy test should definitely show positive. ...Read more
