What is implantation bleeding?

Implantation bleeding also called implantation spotting is one of the typical pregnancy signs and symptoms. Implantation usually happens around 6-12 days after ovulation and fertilization.

Most women have no symptoms such as bleeding or cramps, at the time of implantation. However, some women report drops of blood and/or light cramping. A few days after conception, the fertilized egg starts attaching to the wall of your uterus and getting ready to grow. Since the uterine lining is rich with blood, some women spot a little at this point.

If you are trying to get pregnant, the good news is that early pregnancy symptoms feel very similar to the start of your period.

Implantation bleeding is fairly common with pregnancy. If you have some light spotting before your period would normally start this is not really something to worry about and may be a sign of pregnancy.

Remember, there’s no way to know whether your spotting is in fact a pregnancy. Only a test can tell.
