Implantation Bleeding! well, some of you might confuse this with a lot of other phenomena like a late menstruation cycle or a miscarriage and whatnot. Therefore, for you to not get panic by any such thing in the future, I am going to talk about what and how Implantation bleeding really works.
So let’s get talkin'
What is Implantation Bleeding?
Implantation bleeding is light bleeding from the vagina that happens in some women 10 to 14 days after conceiving a baby. You might get confused and may come to the conclusion that you are experiencing late period but it’s an early sign of pregnancy and the good news about this is that there is absolutely nothing to worry about and you would never need any treatment for this until the flow is quite heavy (heavier than that you experience during your monthly cycle).
Causes of Implantation Bleeding
After a sperm fertilizes your egg, the combination becomes an embryo. It travels to your uterus, where it implants itself into the lining. Sometimes, as the embryo attaches, it causes a little bleeding. It doesn't mean the baby will have problems. See it’s only the universe rooting for you to have a baby.
Symptoms of Implantation Bleeding
Implantation bleeding tends to happen before you experience morning sickness. You might have:
- Blood that’s brown or pinkish
- Blood that’s lighter in flow than what you get during your period
- Mild cramping
It’s probably implantation bleeding if you have some of the other signs of early pregnancy, including:
- Tender, swollen breasts or nipples
- Upset stomach
- Vomiting (morning sickness)
- Food cravings or aversions
- Mood swings
- Peeing more than usual
These are like a lot of symptoms already. Nevertheless, if you’re not sure whether you’re having implantation bleeding or your period, take a pregnancy test or talk to your doctor. Oh, I totally forgot to mention that the Implantation Bleeding only lasts for two days so you won’t be shedding too much of blood (yay).
So that is it, FOLKS!
