Is it implantation bleeding or just in between bleeding?

Hi there!

I am 25yrs with one child. I had my last period on April 3rd and my cycle normally lasts 28 -30 days and is very regular. This month I had ovulation pains on April 15th and did the 'deed' unprotected on April 14th, 15th, 16th, 17th and 19th. Late last night, I noticed a bit of brown/pinkish discharge (very minimal amount). This morning, it was a bit more (needed a liner) and dark brown/maroon. I am just concerned b/c my period isn't due until a week from now and I have never had spotting or in-between bleeding ever. I do have slight cramping but nothing bad. I was hoping it might be implantation bleeding but does this seem too heavy to be that? My flow is normally very heavy days 1-3. As  much as I want to  be pregnant, it doesn't sound like it this time around.

Any advice as to what could be causing this?

sometimes implantation bleeding can look like a period.. My friend thought she had her period for 2 days and when it stopped and never came back, she took a test and found out she was pg...Dont give up hope!!

Good luck!

I had fairly heavy implantation bleeding with this pg.  It wasn't heavy enough for a regular pad, but I definitely need a pantyliner.  This is my 2nd pg, with my 1st ending in m/c.  I didn't have implantation bleeding with that pg but did with this one.  My implantation bleeding was red, pink, and brown.

I had implantation that sounded like that 3 times. Once I remember I spotted w/o cramps for 2 days, which was 3-4 dpo. I had a BFP 9 dpo.

The 2nd implantation I experienced I thought was my period. It came a week early, was heavy and very crampy. The whole AF works. Lasted 5 days total. I got a BFP 9 days after the bleeding stopped.

The 3rd, and last implantation was also very crampy. The spotting would come and go, all shades of blood. I think I bled 2 days, spotted 3 other days. I got a BFP on the last day of the spotting.

Try testing tomorrow or sunday. you should get a BFP soon if it is the implantation bleeding.

Everyone's implantation bleeding's different. Some say spot only 1-2 days max w/o cramping. Mine bled like a period.

Good luck. Keep us updated

It could be implantation bleeding. I did not believe in that until monday or tuesday I started having a little bleeding. Light pink with some cramping. Tested on Thursday and had a positive hpt. So you never know. Good Luck!
