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?
It is a question that is often asked: Is my vaginal discharge normal or should I be worried that something is wrong? The answer is: It depends. Every woman experiences some vaginal discharge and usually, it signals a healthy vagina but there are times when you should talk with your doctor.
What is Normal Discharge?
The pH in your vagina is naturally acidic to help prevent infections. This acidity is caused by “good” bacteria created by your body. Your vagina produces secretions to help cleanse your vagina, much like the saliva in your mouth. The secretions are released every day cleaning out old cells. The secretions also help prevent infections and keep your vagina lubricated.
As the secretions flow out of your vagina, you may see some discharge. Normal discharge is clear or milky white. It can sometimes appear yellowish when dry on clothing. You may also see small white flecks or, depending on your menstrual cycle, it may be thin and stringy.
