Hello everyone I really need some experiences of implantation bleeding so I don't go mad.

My period is due to start on this monday but I started spotting on tuesday which has got a little heavier last few days but nothing like my normal af.

Could this be implantation bleeding or is it possible my af has just arrived early. Any experiences or advice appreciated. X

Have you taken a test? That's your only way of knowing...

I had implantation bleeding and so had two very early scans.My friend also had it, in both of us it lasted about three days and was light and pink/brown.You could do a test quite soon too.

I did a test yesterday morning that was bfn so don't know if its too early. I had a miscarriage in jan and didn't get a bfp till about 2 weeks after missed af. X

I didn't get implantation bleeding but I did a first response test 2 days and 1 day before AF was due. Both bfn. Didn't get a bfp till 4 days late

Same as hellymelly. Very pale and lasted three days.

Maybe its not then mine has been 3 days so far but started a sink stained cm now a sort of dark red colour.

I got implantation bleeding 3 days before my period was due, lasted 7 days, i assumed it was a period even though each day was only spotting, got a bfn when it was finished and a bfp another 2 weeks later, turns out i ovulated early or something as would of been 3 weeks pregnant when the spotting finished!

Oh and with DD only had a tiny spec of blood at implantation.

I had implantation bleeding which I thought was a period but it was 5 days later than my period would've come. My cycle was messed up due to a MC though and it's only looking back that I think it was IB.

It was about 2 days of very light bleeding, dark brown colour.

Generally it occurs 6-12 days after ovulation AFAIK.

shorty100 Thu 04-Aug-11 21:24:05

See i've not really got much to go off, I don't know when I ovulated as I don't test for it, my cycles are still not the same every month since the mc, they have been getting shorter every month so based this month on how long it was last month.

Normally my af lasts 5 days and that includes 1 and half days of spotting with by the end of the second day my af starting properly, tomorrow will be the 4th day or spotting that keeps stopping.

Thanks for everyones replies x

i had ib with this pg. Five days iirc, of very light spotting. Didn't feel like af iykwim. Am now 33wks.

Good luck! smile

This morning it seemed a little heavier so got a bit upset as thought it was def af but now it has gone really light again and only when I wipe. Think i'm just going to be patient which I am not good at. Thanks for everyones experiences so far. X

I think I must have had implantation bleeding (wasn't looking out for it though as my pregnancy was hugely unexpected grin), it was roughly around the time af would have been (maybe a few days out). Like a few others have said, it was about 2-3 days of really light spotting, and a different colour from normal. Definitely different from normal, I'd usually be similar to you. Good luck smile

Lorelai Fri 05-Aug-11 09:18:21

I had implantation bleeding second time around, very similar to yours - started about 7-10 days before AF was due, coming and going for about 5 days.

shorty100 Fri 05-Aug-11 12:33:58

It has been heavier than light bleeding and been quite red at times but I have had a pad on and have none on it so its just when I wipe sorry tmi. I have got quite bad cramps too now.

Franchini Fri 05-Aug-11 13:18:23

I had implantation bleeding after IVF it was like a dark brown/black clotty spotting which was on and off for 2 days.

shorty100 Fri 05-Aug-11 16:47:06

The bleeding seems to have slowed down a bit now. Still only when I wipe. Think its still possible I am pregnant so my hopes are still up at the moment x

shorty100 Sat 06-Aug-11 09:05:21

Anyone else have experience of this? Still happening day 5 and cramping is worse today. X

Mine did last for about 5 days or so. When did you last test?

shorty100 Sat 06-Aug-11 09:35:23

Last tested on wednesday. There is blood when I wipe but nothing like my normal af. X

Lorelai Sat 06-Aug-11 10:23:05

Might be worth another test, if you have one handy.

hiccymapops Sat 06-Aug-11 10:31:00

Just wanted to say fingers crossed for you x

BobbieSox Sat 06-Aug-11 10:33:24

I had it twice, not this time though. First time I had a pain in my side then bleeding which I thought was light AF for about 3 days. Second time just a spot or 2 of blood. First time got BFP on first response day after bleeding stopped. Second time got clearblue BFP 2 days after. Could be good news for you!

shorty100 Sat 06-Aug-11 10:52:01

Its suddenly got alot heavier so not looking good. Would love to know whats happening as my cycle has never been like this. Thanks for everyones posts
