My last period was july 31st its is now sept 9. I am almost 2 weeks late and have had concerns of being pregnant. Yesturday I had two really small spots of blood on my underwear. I thought finally i have my period. Since then I havent had anything, if anything just brownish discharge and barely any of that..... i have a small child so have been through pregnancy before and this did not happen. I want to know could it be implantation bleeding or is it a slow start to my period? This spotting happened 24 hours ago and only small discharge since...no flow whatsoever.... I need advice what could this be? could i be pregant? or is the implantation timing too off to be that? please help. thanks
I have taken this off of my website, InfertilityAnswers.net. I hope that this information is helpful. If you are still wondering if you are pregnant then please make an appointment with your OB for an exam!
What is Implantation Bleeding?
If you are trying to get pregnant, you may hear about implantation bleeding. The term implantation bleeding implies that you would see the amount of blood that you typically see with your period, but this generally isn't the case when you are experiencing implantation. Implantation bleeding occurs when an egg has been fertilized and implants into the lining of the uterus. Because the lining uterus is made up of blood, there can be a bit of blood expelled in some women.
Implantation will appear before you expect your period and many people mistaken it for spotting before their period begins. As mentioned before, most women do not experience a full on bleeding with implantation. Instead, they may experience a bit of spotting in their panties or even some pinkish or brown discharge. This usually is usually not a flowing type of blood, so if that is what you are experiencing it might be better to assume that you have your period. If you happen to get a positive pregnancy test and you are experiencing a flow of blood you might want to get in touch with your doctor to ensure that all is well.
Because there is typically so little and it is before you would expect your period it would be normal to think you are just getting ready to start your period. But, if you are attempting to get pregnant and you know that you ovulated and you had sex around that time it might be a good indication that you are in fact pregnant. Of course, you can't confirm pregnancy with the presence of a bit of blood, but it may be a very good indication that you'll get a positive pregnancy test in the very near future.
It's important to remember that you will usually experience implantation a week or more before you would expect your period, depending on when you ovulate. Also, if you don't happen to see any spotting around this time you shouldn't assume that you aren't pregnant. While a big deal is made about implantation bleeding in a lot of books and all over the Internet, there are actually very few women that actually report experiencing the phenomenon. This could be because most of us assume that we are just spotting before our period starts or it could just be so little blood that it goes unnoticed.
Implantation bleeding is something that many women assume that they will experience, but generally doctors believe that it is the exception not the rule. Knowing this, you probably shouldn't watch for implantation bleeding. Because you know that it does happen every so often you also do not need to be alarmed if you do experience it!

Hello, I'm having something similar, but see here is the thing. I started my period in Feb. Full 7 day long heavy flow. 2 weeks later, which was the start of march, March 5th to be exact, I started what I thought was another period, but it was very light and spotty, nothing worth using a tampon over. I took 2 pregnancy tests, both came back negative, I waited till I was or what I thought was 2 weeks late, and I got a positive. I am trying to figure out if that was indeed implantation or not, it would help me to know how far alone I am.

Im not sure how long ago you posted this, but I was wondering what your results were, because i'm experiencing the same thing! I was expecting my period on Oct 21st and have very regular periods, then started this weird brownish pink discharge for about a day and a half. Im not sure when i should test again? Or should i assume that was my period and it just came late this month?? please help me and let me know... thank you in advance!
and then what happened? Where you pregnant or not? I´m very interested in your answer because I´m going through the same thing right now, my husband and I are not really looking for a baby, but if it comes we would be more than happy!!! hope you could answer back!
my period started june 2 and ended on the 8th, then on june 12th i started my period again and it didnt end till the 16th and i was supposed to start june 30th, i was 14 days late till earlier tonight (july 13th) started having pink/red light bleeding, been having cramps since last week, and for the past couple of days i have been feeling sick to my stomach but not to the point of throwing up. usually when my periods start they are heavy right off the bat, but this is light pinkish red, its only a darker red and pink when i wipe and there isnt much on my pad ( i have no panty liners). could this be implantation bleeding or not?
