How long does implantation bleeding last?

Like when you first get pregnant you know how you can spot/bleed because of the egg implanting into the uterus? How long does that usually last? And how heavy of a bleeding is that?

  • there is nothing wrong with bleeding during pregnancy because not everyone pregnancy experience i the same. I went to the hospital becuase i was bleeding and the told me there was nothing wrong with me or the baby and it could just be that I needed to rest more.

  • Hi, don't let some of the answers frustrate you. I know some women who have had implantation bleeding that lasted between 6 and 9 days..and it was just spotting. It varies for every woman. The first respondant said FROM HER EXPERIENCE which means she actually experienced it for 1 to 2 weeks and WAS, in fact, PREGNANT. Just as well, some women DO experience heavier implantation bleeding (although never like a normal period). But if a woman can have pregnancy bleeding(which most women mistake for "having your period during pregnancy) than a woman can have a heavy I.B.. I hope by this time you've already gone to the doctor and figured out what was going on with your body! Many blessings to you!

  • hi, i didnt have any implantation bleeding.. i was waiting on halloween night for my period to come, and it didnt come..and then november 5th, i felt sick, i was told i couldnt get pregnant, or would need serious ferility help. Anyhow, my cure to get my period going was to take a PT, boy to my shock and glee, it was positive. I never suspected a thing... everyone is different, so if you dont spot, it doesnt mean your not pregnant. My son is now 8 weeks old... and super cute... but all babies are, they are just little miracles..

  • The spotting is so light, it doesn't even make it into your underwear. Like the previous post said, one wipe and it's GONE. A tiny egg implanting into the uterus does not cause any heavier bleeding than a spot or two.
