implantation bleeding can happen around the time of a period, but can be lighter or just spottig. it can even have clots in it too. it can even be as bad as a normal period. so it may be that

implantation bleeding does not always occur in every woman.. it is shorter and lighter.. and the duration depends on the woman. Every woman is different..

Implantation spotting is most frequently noticed a week or so after conception and comes from the blastocyte settling into its new home. Most frequently described as "pink and brown when wiping". Light bleeding at period time is not uncommon in the first trimester of many pregnancies. Coming off BC, it may take several months for the natural cycle to get re-established. The bleeding pattern while on BC is not a true "period".

Hi. I had a strange af this month. Mostly brown and lighter than normal. BUT, I know it´s not implantation because all of the other factors. My temps went down, and the difference in my cp. I think they are honestly just odd periods. Maybe everyone should temp too, then maybe you wouldn´t have to spend so much money on hpts!! lol. Just trying to help :)
