How To Diagnose Symptoms Of Implantation Bleeding: 3 Steps

One of the top signs and symptoms of implantation, i.e. a successful one, would have to be implantation spotting.


To understand this, one should first have a good knowledge about the definition of implantation.

This is the process of attaching the fertilized egg to the uterine lining.

Because of the fact that the fertilized egg is extremely small in size therefore it isn’t visible to the naked human eye, which is why signs and indicators play an important role in affirming the fact that the female in question is truly pregnant.

These signs denote the fact that the fertilized egg has procured a good hold on to the walls of the female’s uterus.

At times instead of implantation bleeding spotting can also happen. Of course the latter is not as severe as the former. implantation-bleeding-cramps

Spotting here refers to the situation where the female would experience droplets of blood erupting from the vagina, which causes ‘spotting’ of the undergarments and hence the name.

Implantation is said to be successful and complete in true sense when the fertilized egg also known as a blastocyst travels all the way through the fallopian tube and adheres itself to the uterus’ lining.


On an average it takes about nine days after ovulation for this process to happen and the duration required for fertilization can be anywhere between 6-12 days.

One of the most typical signs and symptoms of implantation is definitely implantation spotting.

This bleeding is scanty in nature unlike regular menstrual period and its color can vary from pink to light brown.

It generally occurs about 6-12 days after the processes of ovulation and fertilization has taken place, that is within one or two days’ time after the fertilized egg latches itself to the walls of the uterus.

During the time of this bleeding, the blastocyst is extremely small, like a speck of dust and once the implantation successfully takes place, it turns into the embryo.

implantationOf course while implantation spotting or bleeding may be one of the most common and effective indicators of a successful implantation, one cannot solely rely on this indicator.

It is also imperative to go for a pregnancy test in order to clear the doubt and face the truth.

Women who feel that they are experiencing the typical symptoms that pertain to pregnancy are advised to opt for such tests.

However, not everyone can experience the symptoms, it varies from person to person.

Therefore it is possible that while one woman is experiencing intense implantation cramps, the other one doesn’t experience even slight discomfort or bleeding!


While mild implantation cramps may be normal and so there is nothing to panic about, it may also happen that such cramps are occurring for more than 2-3 days after one has become positively pregnant.

In such a situation it is advisable to consult a doctor immediately in order to rule out the chances of sexual health issues like miscarriage, placental abruption, preterm labor, urinary tract infections or preeclampsia.

A lot of times it may also happen that the female is experience intense implantation cramps because of the growing uterus or the accumulation of gas in the stomach.

While implantation cramps and implantation spotting are definitely two strong signs and symptoms of implantation, there are other signs to look out for as well. One of them would be the BBT or Basal Body Temperature.

This temperature would rise in case of ovulation and dip during implantation, therefore marking the various stages of one’s pregnancy cycle.

Apart from this one would also find a lot of hormonal changes taking place in the body.

The progesterone levels would surge up, thus inducing the change in the secretion produced by the uterine epithelial glands.

A qualified, reputable and reliable fertility doctor is the primary requirement in case you are extremely eager about getting pregnant.

Apart from fulfilling this requirement you should also observe your body closely for even the slightest signs and symptoms of implantation.
