In early March 2015, a California jury ordered Johnson and Johnson’s Ethicon division to pay $5.7 million in the first trial due to injuries that have been attributable to the TVT Abbrevo mesh product.

Implantation bleeding is thought to occur when a fertilized egg attaches itself to the uterine lining. This happens sometime around 10 to 14 days after conception. It can sometimes be confused with an early period but usually implantation bleeding is much lighter, lasting anywhere from a few hours to a couple days.
What causes implantation bleeding?
When an egg is fertilized, it moves down the fallopian tube to the uterus, normally arriving there about 9 days after fertilization. As it burrows into the uterine lining, some women will shed some blood. This is implantation bleeding.
Does everyone experience implantation bleeding?
Most women either don’t experience much bleeding or don’t notice. Others may notice only a little spotting. Some women will experience cramp like feelings and spotting for several days. Approximately one-third of women will experience implantation bleeding.
Does implantation bleeding look the same as a period?
