  • I had implantation bleeding with my first and it happened on the day my period was supposed to start. I thought that was what it was with the cramping and bleeding. But it only lasted a day and I called my doctor who said to take a pregnancy test and call her back.

    What you're experiencing could be implantation bleeding. Everyone is different.

  • Only 5% actually have implantations bleeding. It happens 24 hrs after implantation. So whenever you ovulated and it implanted. Which know one would really know.
