How long does implantation bleeding or spotting lasts?

I was just wondering how long implantation bleeding or spotting lasts if I'm pregnant or might be pregnant, I’m having this spotting for 14 days now ,does is last days, weeks or months? I have these mild headaches, I don’t know if it is preg symptoms or because I'm working too much. I have been spending endless hours in front of the computer and probably that is why I'm getting these headaches. Besides that no other symptoms. Please advice.

How long do you usually bleed after a miscarriage???
ANSWER #10 of 26

I really don't have an answer, because I am in a similiar state as the rest of you. Only my last period was June 2009. I'm 36yrs old, with no kids. My boyfriend and I have recently been having unprotected sex yet never imagined the possibility of anything resulting from it. But I have had some on and off spotting ranging from light pink to dark brown, but never heavy. I took (2) otc pregnacy test and they were positive. I am so afraid to see a doctor though. I am hoping that the tests results are false. Could this be possible? I have felt some light discomfort in the lower adbominal area, basically around the pelvic area.

how long does a hang over usally last
ANSWER #11 of 26

From experience I know for a fact that implantation bleeding can last up to 10 days. It happened to me before and I didn't realize that I was pregnant. I was 16 weeks along before I finally missed a period and my baby was fine. Now once again I'm experiencing abnormal bleeding and I'm pretty sure I'm pregnant again. I've been bleeding very lightly for 7 days w/ some very mild cramping. Every woman is different and our bodies react differently to pregnancy compared to another woman. If you think you are pregnant take a test if it comes up negative that doesn't mean you are not pregnant.

Hey! I have been doing some reading about this myself. I found that many say that a woman can spot a few days before her period and during pregnancy. If it's lasting weeks you could take a pregnancy test . See your doc as well.

ANSWER #19 of 26

I had no spotting with my first pregnancy. I'm now having implantation spotting/cramping with my second pregnancy (about 12 DPO). It's been at least 5-6 days, so it really depends on your body, and no one else's opinion.


ANSWER #20 of 26

I have the same issue- I'm totally confused..I want to be pregnant sooo bad...I'm also discharging brownish blood but so light- my breast are swollen & sore. I'm praying that I am pregnant. I'm due for my period Sept 3rd or 4th. So im not sure if I should take a home pregnancy test- But talking to my friends they all think I am pregnant.


ANSWER #21 of 26

Implantation bleeding usually just lasts a day or two at most, not fourteen days. If you think you are pregnant and are still spotting that much, make sure you talk to your ob-gyn about it.


ANSWER #22 of 26

I have had three kids. with my first I had a full 7 day period for the first 3 months of pregnancy, and then got a positive test. Docs thought I was approximately 6 weeks. when it was time for my ultrasound they discovered that I was almost 7 months instead of 4 months. what I'm saying is that all women are different. I have since had my tubes tied, but experiencing changes in my cycle. it usually comes every 31 days, and has since menses. however, the last two months I have been 7days late, with shorter periods. before they would last 6-7 days now only lasting 2-4 days. I am having symptoms of pregnancy, yet still have negative tests. so I say, keep track of cycles,you know your body and what is normal, if something seems off go to a Doctor, or Gyno. Only they can say for sure what is going on. Pregnancy tests only test for a hormone present during pregnancy, and can be unreliable. some women don't develop enough of the hormone to register on a test, in the beginning of pregnancy.
