Take pregnancy test

If you're having early pregnancy bleeding it may be different to your 'normal period' in amount of bleeding (heavier than normal or lighter than a normal period) or in timing - pregnancy bleeding usually occurs after the time your period was due. Symptoms are not 100% reliable - take a pregnancy test if you are late with your period or if your bleeding is different to a normal period.

What is the difference between implantation bleeding and period ???

Timing and HCG

Implantation
Implantation bleeding is typically seen about one week post-ovulation. Bleeding that is closer to two weeks after ovulation is more likely to be a period. Serum HCG testing would confirm that if you need to know: not considered clinically relevant at that point.

What is the difference between implantation bleeding and regular period? two days late for period now bleeding in small amounts

Internet Myths

Open-uri20140111-21645-1oosgn2
There really is no such thing as implantation bleeding. A newly inseminated egg is smaller than a pinpoint. It is microscopic. It does not cause 'trauma' to the wall of the uterus when it implants. Rarely a female may see a spot of blood, but not bleeding from this. Bleeding represents a period or something else.

Dr. Matthew Wilson answered:

What is the difference between implantation bleeding and your period? I've been bleeding on and off for a few days now what could this be?

Irregular bleeding

Menses
Bleeding "off and on" is not usually a period, but could be evidence of pregnancy, anovulatory cycles, anatomic problem, infection, or other. Implantation bleeding is usually very light and short in duration.

how to know difference between period and implantation bleeding?

Pregnancy test

Bleeding
A pregnancy test at the time your period is due will answer that question. Implantation typically occurs about 8 to 10 days after conception, which should be about 4 to 6 days before the period is due. Implantation bleeding will usually happen within about 14 days of implantation. So, by the time your period is due, a pregnancy test will be positive if you have conceived.
