  • chefjen obviously you have absolutely no idea what your talking about. Your ignorance is astounding. Before you pretend to give advice I'd do your research.

    Anyway implantation bleeding is very real. Just google it hun, you'll get all the information you'll need.

  • I had it with both of my pregnancies. It is definitely real.
    It IS diferent from period bleeding because it is very light... and usually brownish. You might want to wear a panty liner, but it's not heavy at all... just spotting. Mine only lasted a couple of hours.

  • • Implantation Bleeding or spotting-----Some women notice a small amount of red spotting or pink or reddish brown staining around the time they should get their period. (If you have pain along with spotting or bleeding, call your caregiver immediately since this can be a sign of an ectopic pregnancy.)

    This is copied from (just to name one of the hundreds of facts about "implantation bleeding)," but oh yea it doesn't exist!!!

  • Actually there is such a thing as "implantation bleeding" I had it with my son and when I m/c in Oct they asked if it was implantion bleed or was it bright red.

    Implantation bleed is light pink -brown. There is usually no cramping involved but some do get cramping hence why some ppl never know they are pregnant b/c they think the implant bleed is their period. just take a pg test on AF due date hon!!

  • I had implantation bleeding, it doesn't last long and is pinkish brown. My doctor says it's common especially after sex. Well, bleeding is like a period.
