Can do a preg. Test: A positive home urine pregnancy test can tell a woman that PRIOR spotting was actually implantation spotting. It can be hard to tell if she is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women.

If I'm going through "implantation bleeding", and had a blood test done the same day it started would the blood test be positive?

Nature: There is no such thing as implantation bleeding. The landing of the microscopic sized fetus on the wall of the uterus is not traumatic and does not cause bleeding. Pregnancy tests are only positive after a fetus is big enough to have blood cells and chemicals that are high enough to be shared with the mother's body. That is at about fourteen days after conception. So, No. ...Read more

Implanation bleed: Implantation bleeding is much more common on the internet than in real life. It occurs rarely and exclusively in someone who is pregnant.

Not pregnant, so...: If not pregnant, then the spotting or bleeding was not related to implantation. A woman need not think about implantation, because it matters only in hindsight. That means AFTER a woman confirms her pregnancy with a positive urine test, she can then look back and say, "That spotting I had could have been related to implantation." Until one is pregnant, there is no need to think about implantation. ...Read more

When having light pink implantation bleeding, does it have to eventually turn brownish? I'm on day 3 of light pink on the toilet paper when I wipe.

When having light pink implantation bleeding, does it have to eventually turn brownish? I'm on day 3 of light pink on the toilet paper when I wipe.

Want A Boy Or Girl?: I don't think there's a law or executive order that mandates that implantation blood must turn brown. But the usual course of events"down there" is for blood that remains inside there for any good length of time to turn brownish. There are other reasons for light pink blood. But if you are mid-cycle and you're in the process of trying to get pregnant, then that's a good guess. It shouldn't last long ...Read more

I started spotting w/ 2 active pills left, it lasted a week. I normally start 3 days into inactive pills. I took 1 pill late. Implantation bleeding?

Probably not, but...: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a withdrawal period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. ...Read more
