Implantation Bleeding: How Common Is It?

    Implantation bleeding is fairly common with pregnancy and maybe around twenty to thirty percent of women will have spotting at implantation and during early pregnancy. If you have some light spotting before your period would normally start this is not something to worry about and may be a sign of pregnancy.

    Implantation happens about 9 days (range 6-12 days) after ovulation, and you can then have a typical BBT pregnancy chart. Most women report at most a few drops of blood, maybe one to two small red or brown spots in your underwear.Bleeding similar to a menstrual period is unlikely implantation bleeding.
