CAN IMPLANTATION BLEEDING BE HEAVY?

HAS ANYONE HAD ANT HEAVY IMPLANTATION BLEEDING? I OVULATED ON THE 6 AND 7TH AND HAD INTERCOURSE RIGHT ON TIME, BUT YESTERDAY THE 17TH I STARTED SPOTTING SOME PINK DISCHARGE, THEN BROWNISH, THEN BRICK RED, AND FINALLY LIKE A REGULAR PERIOD (MEDIUM-HEAVY)WITH SOME SMALL CLOTS. ALSO MY BREAST LOOK REALLY WEIRD, I HAVE DEVELOP SOME SMALL PIMPLE LIKE BUMPS AROUND MY NIPPLE AREA. IM REALLY WORRIED, BECAUSE MY PERIOS WAS DUE IN TEN DAYS. WHAT'S HAPPENING? I THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE IMPLANTAION BLEEDING BUT IM NOT SURE HELP!

I think implantation bleeding is usually brown or light pink spotting and there is not a "flow" to it. It almost sounds like you got your period early or maybe you have had a cyst that burst? I would ask your doc, though. It is odd to have heavier bleeding mid-cycle like that.

I had an early "period" with my son. It came I think 9 days early. It lasted 5 days, bad cramping, bled enough to use tampons and pads, and had clots. I've had IB with almost all of my 7 pgs, but every time is different. That was definitely the worst. I didn't get a positive hpt till 12 days later. I know for a fact it was IB b/c we were TTC and we hadn't BD'ed since before I had my supposed period till the time I took the hpt. I was also using OPK's and the only reason why I took a hpt was b/c the ovulation line wasn't getting any lighter or darker as the days passed, although I thought I was getting due to ovulate.

I'VE READ THAT IMPLANTATION  BLEEDING IS SUPPOSE TO BE LIGHT AND PINK, BUT SINCE I NOW KNOW OF DIFFERENT WOMEN WHO DID BLEED (HEAVY) DURING IMPLANTATION, NOW I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO THINK. HOPEFULLY IT'S IMPLANTATION THAT WILL MAKE ME REALLY HAPPY SINCE WE'VE BEEN TRYING FOR 5 YRS. NOW. I CALLED MY DR. AND HE ASKED ME TO WAIT UNTIL TOMORROW TO SEE HOW THINGS DEVELOP I THINK HE'S GOING TO ASK ME TO WAIT FOR A HPT UNTILTHE REAL DATE OF MY PERIOD MARCH 30TH. OH WELL WILL SEE I JUST WISH TIME CAN GO BY FAST TO GET AN ANSWER (HOPEFULLY POSITIVE!!). THANKS YOU FOR YOUR HELP IT REALLY HELPS TO CHAT WITH SOMEONE.

Yeah I am having the same issues. I had an IUI Nov.31st and today is Cycle 28. I normally start on the day 27. Yesterday after having sex I started bleeding faintly pink and then brown. Today it is red and heavier. But not like a period. Im wearing 1 tampon a day. Im so scared. Cuz I have had most of the pregnancy symptoms and was sure I was PG. Now my hopes are going down. I hope that it is implantation bleeding.

My lmp was on 6/17 it was normal and lasted 5 days.  I have a 32 day cycle and usually normal.  My period was suppose to start on 7/18, but i started bleeding 7/10.  Im not sure if its my actual period, or implantation bleeding.  It started of dark brown for a couple of hours, then got bright red and now its kinda heavy, enuff for a tampoon.  This never happened before, so im not sure whats going on.  I've read that alot of women have experienced heavy IB.  After my lmp, about 3 days later i started spotting for about 2 days.  My breasts have been sore ever since my last period ended.  If anyone else has experienced this, please give me some positive feedback!

I have had a tubal ligation reversal on 7/20/09 and I've had my period every 28 days exactly ever since and I have always been regular. This past month I get my pd 9/26/09 and I'm due for my next on the 24 of this month. My husband and I have been TTC since the surgery and I started a light/ med bleeding on the 14th of this month. That is 11 days early and that never happens. Just wanted to know what u thought. Thanks!

I got my period about 2 days early, I bled for a day or two sorta heavy.  But then it just stopped. I havent bled since.  my usual period is between 5 and 6 days...like clock work. Could this have been implantation beeding?

im in the same boat.. my period was due 1/31 but it came 3 days early. It started out reallly light but got a little heavier not like a normal period tho kinda like the end of a period, and it only lasted 2 1/2 days which is not normal cuz mine last 5 days long.  Sooo confused I dont know if its implantation bleeding or an early weird period, when should I get a test??
Avatar universal
wow, i;m in the same boat as u guys. my period was due feb. 8 and i had light brown bleeding feb. 3 and then it stopped that same day. the next afternoon i bled again but this time it was a lil darker brown and now its a little heavier (feb.6) and redder. i have all of the signs of pregnancy since last week. i ovulated jan. 25 and had sex 2 days before and the day after my ovulation. my period is ALWAYS on time and never early or late. i've had weird cravings, extreme fatigue, headaches, bloating, gas, and my boobs are huge and sore. sorry, tmi, i know. a couple of days after i ovulated that's when all of my symptoms appeared. this has never happened to me before. i have a doctor's appt but its not until march. should i wait and see what happens next week? any suggestions???????????

I have short cycles just 26 days (AF last for 5) anyway they started 28th of feb but this time had egg white discharge almost straight after AF ive checked fertility sites etc says i would have ovulated 14th mar sunday. but since the thurs after(18th mar) ive had very light bleeding along with mucous like discharge. so in essence im 2 weeks early for AF! (not due to start till 4th of april) I think it must be implantion bleeding because this NEVER happens. Its a very light period. Has lasted 5 days today. I vaguely remember something like this with my last daughter too. im pretty positive im pregnant just thought i'd post it up and update if i get bfp in a few days to pass along info:) always an effort to get thru the 2 week wait hahaha!
