Implantation bleeding (may be TMI)

How far into pregnancy can implantation bleeding take place?

I am a little over 7 weeks pregnant and work up to very light cramping and went to the bathroom when I wiped I had dark blood like it was old with some small clots, my doctor said its implantation but he hasn't seen me this pregnancy yet. I thought implantation would be over with by now?

  • Yes it can be. As the placenta grows larger it will need more area to attach. I had it mid April and then again early May.

  • Implantation bleeding happens before you know you're pregnant. If you test during or immediately after implantation bleeding, you don't even have enough pregnancy hormone to show up on a hpt yet.

    I bled around 7 weeks with my second pregnancy. It was never enough for a pad, just enough for a panty liner. I also had blood every time I wiped when I pottied. It lasted a couple of days and then went away and everything was fine. My dr didn't seem concerned as long as it wasn't enough to be like a period flow. As long as you don't need a pad, you will probably be ok. Drink plenty of water. Lay on your left side as much as possible. Take it very easy until this passes. If you bleed enough that you need a pad at all, then go to the hospital.

    I don't like that your dr called it implantation bleeding at 7 weeks. Implantation occurs 10-14 dpo.
