my period was due this week, and i've had some light spotting for the past five days. it's been so light i've only worn a liner everyday. i took a hpt & it said negative. If this is implantation bleeding, is it possibly TOO SOON for a hpt to show positive??? should i retest? and when??? thanks ladies =)

I would wait a few days and then try testing again

Hi Jamie. Implantation bleeding usually occurs 2-10 days after conceiving. I would think it's too late for IB...though every woman's body is different. Also, I've read that when there is blood present in the urine, it can give the test a false negative. I would wait until the bleeding stops, and test in weekly intervals until you get a positive. Good luck and Baby dust :)

Thanks- I've heard thousands of theories on IB, (my fav being that it can occur right around time of period) but I do remember last time I was preg (over 2 years ago) I think the same thing happened, I got my 'period' but it was so light just a liner was suffice, and preg didn't even cross my mind... so....I don't remember how long after that i tested with a hpt. Unfortunatly it ended tragically, so I think I may have my hopes too high for this time around, but thanks for the input. I will test again next week & see. Thanks =)
