The Duration Of Implantation Bleeding
The duration of implantation bleeding hardly raises concerns because the bleeding is often over before you even worry about its duration! Besides verifying how long it may last, be sure you are dealing with implantation bleeding in the first place.
How Long Does Implantation Bleeding Last?
The bleeding from implantation normally last about 1 day, and at the most 2 days! Many women often think of implantation bleeding
as possibly similar in some way to their periods. No! Implantation bleeding is
usually so mild that it appears just as a stain on the underwear or very mild
If you are having red vaginal bleeding lasting more than one
day, that alone should raise the alarm that it is not implantation bleeding.
Duration of The Implantation Process
Implantation bleeding does not last throughout the implantation process. In fact it actually occurs only at the end of implantation.
After fertilization, the egg moves towards the uterus and
enters the uterine cavity after about 2 to 3 days. Once in the uterine cavity,
the process of implantation starts about 3 to 4 days later and last a total of about
4 to 5 days. That means implantation
starts about 6 to 7 days after fertilization and lasts about 3 to 5 days.
Is It Implantation Bleeding?
Before considering how long implantation bleeding should
last, be sure you are actually dealing with implantation bleeding in the first
place. Women often attribute early periods, an abnormal uterine bleeding or
bleeding from early pregnancy complication to an implantation bleeding.
