Tips on How to Conceive a Baby Boy
The reason implantation bleeding can be easily confused with a period is because it occurs around the time you might be expecting your period. It is a small bleed that is pink or brown in colour, so can look like the beginning of your period. It can either be a brownish discharge or spotting. Some women report feeling a mild cramping, a headache or mood swings.
If you are trying for a baby and suspect that you may have had implantation bleeding, here are some things which make it different from a period:
If you’re still unsure, the only way to know for certain is to take a pregnancy test. However, you will need to wait a few days after implantation bleeding to ensure there is enough HCG pregnancy hormone in your system for the pregnancy test to detect.
A blood test, ordered through your doctor can also provide a definitive answer.
