Implantation Bleeding & Pregnancy Guide

If you are trying to get pregnant then you will want to make sure that you are educating yourself about what to expect when you first conceive.  There are some very important topics such as implantation bleeding that you are going to want to educate yourself on.

This brief implantation bleeding guide will help you.

What is implantation bleeding?

This is light bleeding or spotting that takes place when the embryo embeds in the wall of your uterus.  It may not be something that all women are going to experience so this is not a great way to determine if you are pregnant or not.  You will also find that it is not going to be really bright red like it would if you were on your period.  You will not even need a sanitary napkin to help you get through this as a panty liner will work just fine.

How long does implantation bleeding last?

The individuals that do experience implantation bleeding will often want to know just how long this bleeding is going to last.  That can be a very difficult question to answer. That is because it will not happen to all women.  Also, those women that do experience implantation bleeding are going to report that their experience may be different than someone else’s.

Sometimes this may take place once very early on in the pregnancy.  However, for others, this spotting may last for a few hours.  Still others will state that it lasted off and on for a few days.  There is really no way to tell.

What does implantation bleeding feel like?

Implantation bleeding may have other symptoms other than the slight spotting that you may experience.  In fact, many of the women surveyed have reported that they have experienced implantation bleeding have also stated that they felt a dull pain or cramping in the abdomen as well.  If you do have these feelings they are not going to be as severe as they would be if you were on your menstrual cycle.

You need to remember that you may feel this pain from time to time but it is not going to be so strong that you are not able to function and carry out the daily tasks that are necessary for you to complete.

Just remember that the implantation bleeding is more like spotting.  It will not be bright red but rather a brownish colour and you will not experience severe pain.

If you are suffering from heavy bleeding and pain you should consult your doctor.
