When should I start seeing implantation bleeding and what does it look like?

Implantation: Implantation bleeding occurs starting around the time of the missed period and for perhaps a week or two after that. It is usually spotting or light bleeding, less than a usual period, and may last several days. Less than a quarter of women when they get pregnant have implantation bleeding so no worries if you don't experience it. It can be confused with a light period or with miscarriage.

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.
