How Long Can Implantation Bleeding Last?

When you are attempting to become pregnant and complete your family you may become a little bit overwhelmed and frightened if you begin experiencing any bleeding or spotting.

However, you need to keep in mind that there are times when you are going to experience bleeding because you are pregnant, not because there is anything wrong.This is called implantation bleeding.

Implantation bleeding is more like spotting and it will often be relatively light. For some women it may be accompanied by dull pain and cramping. It is also very important to remember that this bleeding is not going to be a bright red colour like it would be if you were dealing with your menstrual cycle.  Rather, it will be a brownish colour most of the time.

If you are experiencing some of this light spotting, or implantation bleeding, then you may want to know just how long this can last.

This can be a difficult question to answer and that is because implantation bleeding can be different for everyone.  In fact, not all women are even able to report that they experience this type of bleeding, or spotting.  For some women, it can be one little spot on the underwear.

However, for some women, it may be continual spotting for a few hours. There are some women that will be able to report that they had spotting off and on for a few days.  It really can be different for everyone. It is just important to be sure that you are contacting your doctor if you are experiencing severe pain with very heavy bleeding.
