Signs of Implantation of a Fertilized Eggby Anne Sommers, Licensed Midwife |
The first day of my last period was Dec 17th 1999. The ovulation calculator said conception dates were 31st-2nd of January. The last time I had sex was the 30th of Dec. Today is the 1st of January and I have started some spotting with brown mainly discharge. Could this be implantation bleeding or is another period? Basically are there signs of implantation of a fertilized egg?
A Since it takes a few days for the fertilized egg to travel down the tube and you positively ovulated on the 31st, it most likely is not implantation bleeding. However, maybe you ovulated earlier in your cycle and it is implantation bleeding. Implantation bleeding often occurs at 3 to 4 weeks into your cycle and can correspond with when you would normally have a scheduled period.
Brown discharge could also result from other things - infection, abrasion by intercourse to the pregnant cervix, etc.
The signs of implantation are generally none. It is silent except some women do have "implantation bleeding."
