Okay so i heard implantation bleeding can last 3-7 days, if this is the case would i need to wait like a week before hormones would be high enough to show or is it a week after ib stops?? Any ideas anybody??

Implantation bleeding can last that long but it's only spotting.

Was your period a little early? Did you have s_x w/o birth control? My mom had a light period and then missed the next month. She took a hpt and it was positive. She then went to the DR and found out she was 9 weeks. So, her lighter than normal period was ib. I would wait a week after your period is due, then test. If it is negative, you are probably not pg. But if you completely miss next month's period, you should test again.

I think she is asking that if this is IB when is a good time to test? Rather than IB duration.

thanks layla, I didn't mean that to be as confusing as it was! :) I am just spotting(its so light and descibes dr. description of ib to a T) I'm almost 80%-90% sure I am pg, just wondering how long i should wait till i test! thanks for all help!! :)

I've wondered the same thing. Since the hormone doesn't start producing until after IB then how early can you test? I know some testers state "as early as 5-7dpo, or so many days before AF BUT since alot of women have implantation a different times THEN if you know when IB took place haw long after that?

to layla- I think i will try to wait (if i can!) till a few days after spotting completely stops.... i just don't know if i can wait.... do you think you are pg?

Kw- I don't have a clue if I"m pg probably not. lmp was 2/16 , cramping and spotting 3/4 IB?(quit pill 3 days prior to that so that could have been the reason for spotting..happened before) then 3/12-14 AF cramping, broke out etc. but no AF(that's whats throwing me I never ever do that on/off pill or not). Neg hpt's 2wks ago. Now I'm waiting for AF on 4-1 if that spoting restarted my cycle.

hey can i just ask u guys,m implantation bleeding can last up to 7 days, and can resemble a light period. can that include a slight case of blood clot (very small ones but your period being generally lighter because thats what mione was light a lot lihghter but a few clots. duno. anyone?

i know the bleeding is different for everybody. I have heard some people's is almost exactly like a period, clots and all. Others just spot so I don't really have a very good answer.
