Decidual Bleeding vs. Menstrual Bleeding

What are the main differences between decidual bleeding and menstrual bleeding from an outward physical viewpoint. i.e) no how the process works or what is happening internally. How would a person go about deciphering between the two?

Decidual bleeding is where you only shed a little part of the uterine lining, whereas in a menstural cycle you shed all of the lining. It can be hard to tell the two apart, as the flow can be quite similar. In most cases with decidual bleeding, it's not quite as long or the flow might not be quite as heavy. Another difference is, is that decidual bleeding is very uncommon. Most women will never experience this. (same as implantation bleeding)

Would last around maybe 2 1/2 days compared to a full 7?
