What exactly is implantation bleeding????

My long term bf and I had unprotected sex about 2 weeks ago. Last wkend I had brown and pink spotting when I wiped(not enough to wear a pad). Other than being tired and a little sensitive to smells, I don't feel pregnant. I was supposed to start my period today, but nothing. I have heard about implantation bleeding recently. Not sure, does it sound like I could be pregnant, or am I overreacting?

  • it sounds like you might be. in the average woman, 2 weeks ago would've been ovulation time (ish) but then you had light spotting a week later? usually (i would think, i don't know for sure) that implantation bleeding would happen within a few days of conception.

  • You could absolutely be pregnant. Take a test and repeat it in a few days if it says you are not pregnant. Implantation bleeding is when the egg buries itself into your endometrial lining in your uterus. A little bit of blood is shed. Nothing to worry about. Not everyone gets it. I did. The egg needs a strong attachment to your uterine wall for blood supply and so that it is not expelled. If you are pregnant, get some pregnancy books so you can learn more.
