Implantation Bleeding

Implantation Bleeding

Implantation bleeding is one of the earliest signs of pregnancy. Then, when it comes, even the tests are not yet ready to determine pregnancy.
Independently of whether you expect a pregnancy or not, its presence can be identified by certain characteristics. Pregnancy symptoms can appear within 10-12 days after the hollow act, in which result there was an egg fertilization by sperm. It turns out that the earliest signs of pregnancy appear even before the delay, while some women haven’t them at all.
Although it happens rarely, however, this process considers as normal. In this case we should speak not so much about the bleeding, but about a little pink or brown spotting.
Probably the first physiological sign of pregnancy is implantation. Most women or do not notice this sign or they do not give it much importance.

Symptoms of implantation bleeding:

  • Poor allocations which disappear quickly. Sometimes only the gynecologist can notice them at survey.
  • Possible uncomfortable feeling of heaviness in the lower abdomen. But it should not be painful.
  • A slight decrease of basal temperature.
  • A small weakness.


– the process of implementation of a fertilized egg in the uterine wall. After ovulation the egg releases from the ovary into the fallopian tube and fertilizes by the sperm there, after which it enters into the uterus. This way (from the tube to the uterus) a fertilized egg does in about 9 days after ovulation, and implantation occurs within 1-2 days after being hit by the blastocyst in the uterus. That is, the implantation of an egg is the first contact of a child with the mother’s body. Until that time any physiological symptoms of pregnancy are completely excluded, because the fertilized egg is in a “free floating” in the mother’s organism and it is not connected with him in any way.

It is necessary to add that during all this time the fertilized egg has such a small size that it can hardly be discerned with the naked eye. Only after the fertilized egg infiltrated the wall of the uterus, it can be called an embryo. Most interesting is that at the time of implantation can be observed signs of pregnancy as implantation bleeding, the appearance of brown discharge, but some women feel even spasms in the lower abdomen.

Bleeding may occur if during the introduction of egg into the wall of the uterus occurs a microscopic damage to the uterine wall. Perhaps here is difficult to talk about the full bleeds, it’s probably one or two drops of blood. Amount of allocation is so small that many women do not pay attention to them.

The opinions of experts and women about the spasms in lower abdomen of women during implantation are contradictory. Experts claim that the implantation of a fertilized egg can not be felt on a physically because of its microscopic size, at the same time, there are women that are contrary to this view and they tell that they felt pain at the time of attachment of the future embryo. Depending on the exact physicians have been identified, and rely on the presence of spasms as a reliable sign of pregnancy is not necessary. Exact dependence by physicians has not been identified, and it is not correct to rely on presence of spasms as the reliable sign of pregnancy.

Implantation bleeding usually occurs about a week before the expected start of the next menstrual cycle. Many women think that it is a usual harbingers of menstruation and do not consider that this symptom is a sign of pregnancy. If you notice spotting closer to the first day of the menstrual cycle, then, unfortunately, chances that it is an implantation bleeding decreases.

Experts say that although the symptoms of implantation are not a reliable early sign, but they may indicate that pregnancy is possible and what you should do pregnancies test.

It is important to distinguish implantation bleeding from other possible bleeding from the vagina. However, for a woman herself it is difficult to sort them out. I case of any violation of the menstrual cycle, the terms of ovulation and implantation become shifted. In this case you need doctor’s help.
