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.

Implantation (Definition)

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

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.

Probably breakthru: 'implantation bleeding' is subtle and unpredictable, if it can be interpreted at all. Internet gossip over-emphasizes the idea of 'implantation bleeding.'

Hi, i had 2 days of light bleeding and today quite heavy, could it be a sign of implantation bleeding?

It is possible: It is possible but implantation bleeding is usually not heavy. If you think you may be pregnant please take a pregnancy test. They are most accurate 3 weeks after sexual activity or one week after a missed period. If you are having unprotected sex then please take a prenatal vitamin with folate (folic acid) daily to prevent birth defects.

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.

Is implantation bleeding a good sign?

Likely breakthrough: It's almost never implantation bleeding, that is largely an internet myth. If - a big if - you actually get implantation bleed it would be about 6-7 days after ovulation, or about a week before your expected period. Good luck!

What are implantation signs? And do all women go through implantation bleeding?

What are implantation signs? And do all women go through implantation bleeding?

Back to high school: Implantation is asymptomatic. Period. You don't feel it. The fetus is smaller than a speck if dust at this point and does not cause trauma. There is no such thing as implantation bleeding. Myth.

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

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.

I had sex 5 days ago, can implantation bleeding happen this early showing signs?

This is probably: a bit early for implantation to occur. Most often bleeding does not occur with implantation. When bleeding does occur the amount is very small.

My cycle came four days early and lasted for seven days but it never heavy, is that a sign of implantation bleeding?

My cycle came four days early and lasted for seven days but it never heavy, is that a sign of implantation bleeding?

Test might tell: Implantation bleeding occurs when the early conceptus burrows into the wall of the uterus. It is typically light, but it might be like you described. Having a pregnancy test at the time of the expected period or later would be one way to know if there is a pregnancy, .

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

I came of the Depo in mid April.June 8th unprotected sex + 21st I had what I thought was implantation bleeding.Neg Tests all Symptoms HELP!!

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!

Varies: Some women will experience those symptoms within days of implantation - for others it may be a few weeks, and some women never have those symptoms.

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.
