Implantation Bleeding

What is Implantation Bleeding?

Implantation bleeding is one of the first signs you will notice to if you do become pregnant. The bleeding occurs when a fertilised egg travels down the fallopian tube and attaches (implants) into the lining of the uterus.   Only one third of women experience implantation bleeding when pregnant, the bleeding is generally pink or brown in colour, and is not accompanied by cramps.  

When does implantation bleeding occur?

After fertilisation of the egg occurs, the egg will take approximately 3days to make its way from the fallopian tubes down to the uterus.  It will then begin to attach itself to the uterus lining, however implantation bleeding is generally noticed 6-10days after ovulation.  

Do all women experience implantation bleeding?

No, it is believed only one third of pregnant women will experience implantation bleeding. 

Can I take a Pregnancy Test if I notice implantation bleeding?

Yes, the implantation bleeding will not affect the result of a pregnancy test.  It is advised to use a highly sensitive pregnancy test such as a Fertility2Family test and use first morning urine, as the levels of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) would still be very low.  If you do get a negative pregnancy test, wait 2-3days, and if your period has not arrived, test again. Hopefully at this stage your HCG levels will be high enough to detect.
