Hey, does anyone know if the discharge that comes from implantation bleeding possibly resembled dry blood?? And what should the cervical mucus look like when you are pregnant, or if you aren't? I'm due for AF on Monday and have all the classic signs...thanks!

Implantation Bleeding

What does implantation bleeding look like?
Implantation bleeding is vaginal discharge which usually contains a small amount of pinkish or brownish blood. Only about a third of pregnant women experience implantation bleeding.

When does implantation bleeding usually occur?
It can happen at the time the fertilized egg implants in the uterus, on average between 6 to 12 days past ovulation.
Should I worry about implantation bleeding occurring?
Unless accompanied by cramping, backache or increased bleeding, a small amount of blood being discharged should be considered as implantation bleeding which is nothing to be concerned about.
If this is implantation bleeding, when can I test to see if I am pregnant?
Home pregnancy tests are based on a very simple principle. They work by through the detection of the hormone Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) in a woman's urine. This hormone is a hormone secreted by the developing placenta shortly after a fertilized egg has been implanted in the uterine lining.
If a woman is pregnant, the amount of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) in her system should be around 25 mIU at 10 dpo (days past ovulation), 50 mIU at 12 dpo, 100 mIU at around two weeks dpo. Because of their high sensitivity factor ( 20 mIU/ml hCG ) in detecting human hCG, both the AimStick pregnancy tests can confirm pregnancy as early as 6-8 days past ovulation. To help lower the chances of a false negative, the best time to test at 9 or 10 days past ovulation would be advisable.

I too am wondering about implantation bleeding. I was spotting for about 3 days. I took a pregnancy test. Does anyone think this was too early. Please help.

how long does a mans sperm last in a woman


Tamara - June 26th, 2005 9:10 PM

A man's sperm can last in a woman up to 5 days max but usually 3 days....depends on the environment in the woman.


CARMEN - July 11th, 2005 6:59 PM

my periods are very regular ( every 28 days) so i ovulate on the 14 day of my cycle. my last period was june 21 and i had sex on june 30 and july 4th. on july 7th i started spotting expecially when i go to the pee and wipe. its brownish-red. this past weekend on the 9th and 10th i had very sore breast which i couldnt even cross my arms and had menstral like cramps. today i woke up with just sore breasts and off and on light cramps. could this be implantation bleeding. or is it too soon. its just weird cuz it has never happened before


Apple - July 22nd, 2005 12:43 PM

carmen - July 22nd, 2005 12:50 PM

hello apple!!! well as of jul 20 i just found out i am pregnant. so it was implantation bleeding.which my doc. told me its very normal aslong as its not accompined by pain. and lots of blood. my period was due july 19 and never got it so on the 20th i took a home preg test andit was ++. and went to the doc that same day and the very next day it was comfirmed.


Apple - July 23rd, 2005 6:48 AM

Dear Carmen

Hi, firstly congratulations!!!

Thanks for the quick reply. My period is due on Thursday, will it be too soon to take a home pregnancy test??? I'm going out of my mind and I can't wait another week. How long did your spotting last? Mine was for 2 days. My breasts also feel as if they are growing.


brittany - July 30th, 2005 10:55 PM

i have a question...ok i got my period on the fourth of july and i had sex on the 11 12 13 14 15 16 18 19 21 22 23 ...and lately the last week and a half i have had alot of discharge it doesnt smell itch burn none of that and on like the 25 and 26th when i went to the bathroom and wiped i had blood on the tissue and i dont know what it could be because i took a pregnancy a couple days after my fertile dayz which are supposed to be the 17th through the 22nd and it came out negative...is that to early u think and whats going on?


Chas - July 31st, 2005 1:42 PM

You definately tested to early Brittany. My lmp was 7/4 also, i tested last night and it was neg, but still no period. waiting to test again... so If I were you I wouldn't rule it out just yet and re-test.


carmen - August 1st, 2005 2:41 PM

hello apple ! havent heard from you and i hope everything is going ok and that everything came out like you wanted it to! as for me it didnt come out good. i was pregnancy but found out that jt was an ectopic pregnancy. so im gooing through major issues emotionally and physically too because i really wanted this baby. but i just consolidate myself by telling myself that God wanted this for a reason and should leave it in his hands. well i hope to hear from you soon.


brittany - August 2nd, 2005 1:48 AM

so when do you think i should take the test chas took one yesterday too and that one was negative also...when is your period due?
