Girls, tell me, who knows about implantation bleeding?Monthly I should start in 10 days, but today found on the panties drop of blood in clear phlegm, and stomach all day whining like before menstruation.This month felt good ovulation.Yes, and my husband and I tried to get it.Just do not talk about tests and blood tests, this has never happened.Sexual intercourse was 11,14,15 days of the cycle.Today the 20th day.


Similar isolation sometimes during ovulation happen.


I last month, the same thing happened, and now I have a huge delay and a lot of negative tests ...


I was so on the 10th day after intercourse.This happens when the fertilized egg attaches to the uterine wall.


It happens quite often.The main thing is not to rush time - earlier still do not know!Ovulation bleeding can occur just as implantation.


You need to measure the basal temperature in the morning, preferably at the same time, not getting up, if the temperature is above 36,8-37,0 month and will not come.And it will last at least a week, so it was implantation bleeding and you can congratulate pregnancy.


I've also exactly 6 days there was a drop of rose-brown discharge hopefully pregnant.And I have some heat in the abdomen, can happen to anyone is it?


also recently appeared two brownish stains, and then a little pinkish blood.Breasts swollen, sometimes felt a nagging pain in the abdomen, to monthly 3-4 days ...


I so happened that on the 6th day after intercourse in the evening appeared pinkish discharge.I was very scared of this, 3 months ago, I had a miscarriage.Yet the next day a little bit brownish anointed, and then it was clean.Nipples began to ache.Do the test after 14 days, the result is negative.Now here I am suffering, not knowing pregnant, or maybe it's something else.And the delay can not determine exactly, since the sexual act was a couple of days before the expected menstruation.


On the fifth day of the delay, I did a test, which was positive ... I was very happy and immediately ran to the doctor to confirm a pregnancy as to whether or not ... yet there the doctor drove me to the chair and during the inspection insidefound blood ... the blood of her confused, I was sent to the hospital.The result was the appearance of blood 3 options: either this month began or began miscarriage or implantation of the ovum.To make US and analyzes.My pregnancy was confirmed.Blood was no more.It turned out that it really was the implantation, but if I did not go for a visit to the doctor and found out she did not have blood, I would have never guessed the manifestation of implantation bleeding.As I understand, if implanted, the blood should be quite a bit.


I had implantation bleeding.Only it looked more like a small streaks of blood may be as spotting.It happened on the 7th day after ovulation.I then measured the basal temperature.So, during implantation can still happen implantation drop basal temperature.This means that it falls to 0.2-0.4 degrees, and then rises again.What I have and what happened.


And I implantation occurred seven days after ovulation, and thus sexual intercourse.In the morning I found blood, but not brown, and light red selection, they quickly passed and now all the time pulling the stomach and back.Chest hurt, but almost gone.So I hope that's all it was implantation bleeding.


I have a week before the monthly evening was bleeding like monthly begun.I was scared terribly easy!This had not happened!I did not know what to think!But in the morning there was nothing there.I make an appointment with a gynecologist, but he was appointed only a week.The husband consulted with someone and he said that maybe I was pregnant, and we're all spoiled intercourse and had a miscarriage ... I was disappointed in earnest.The husband then I calmed as he could!He promised that try again.A week later, menstruation did not come, but the pregnancy test was positive!So I went to the gynecologist has to get registered.
