  • I doubt it. Implantation bleeding is only very slight spotting.

  • PS - if it WERE implantation bleeding it would be far too soon to test. Your body would need a few days to start producing the hormone that tests detect (because it can't before implantation) and you need to have enough to be detected.

  • Probably not. Implantation bleeding is very light, many women don't notice it at all. I never did with any of my 5 kids.

  • i had what first doc said was implantation bleed right at start ( days after missed period = very light and then more bleeding not as light in next two weeks, then a very heavy bleed)
    the first doc said implantation
    then the heavy bleed, and first doc not in, saw different doc who did EXTERNAL scan, and she found placenta previa

    if period it not normal, you could be pregnant
    it could be implantation or maybe a problem like placenta issues

    test again with first am pee
    if any doubt go in to see doc and they will test and an exam

    IF bleeding and pregnant- NO INternal scan, make sure they do EXternal scan BEFORE any internal exam
    IF placenta issue, possible you will have NO exam that is internal, as it could harm placenta

    i can not tell you what is going on with your body, but a doc can
    good luck

  • Could be. Call your doctor if you are worried. If it keeps going you are probably having a period. If it goes away you might be pregnant. Test if you are worried and call your doctor if you have questions.

  • No implantation bleeding actually doesn't occur that often I only had it 1/3 pregnancies and it was only spotting not actual bleeding. If you started bleeding the day after your expected period then your not pregnant and it's your period.

  • You don't test from the date you have sex, you test 2 weeks after the date that you would have ovulated.
    If you don't know how this works, LEARN IT.

  • I really don't know, but I hope you get the baby you want. If not this time, then soon.
