How many days Does Implantation Bleeding usually last?

Almost a week ago I noticed some very light spotting. My period was over a week away so i was concerned. I'm on the pill plus me and my boyfriend use condoms, but I got pregnant while taking the pill once before so I took a pregnancy test to be safe. the test came back negative, but I have been spotting on and off since last Friday plus my back is sore which happened during my first pregnancy. Is it possible for implantation bleeding to continue for more than a few days?

Hi!
In your case, it sounds more like you are having break through bleeding than implantation bleeding.  If you missed even one pill at any point in the cycle, this can happen.  It can also happen if you recently started your pills.  I ALWAYS recommend repeating the pregnancy test, and if neither of the two above situation applies, you may want to discuss your bleeding with your doctor.
Good luck!
