Implantation bleeding vs. Early pregnancy spotting
A lot of women seem to confuse the 2, so here is a quick FYI!
Rare and uncommon
Lasts 1-3 days tops
Light pink or light brown
Don’t need a pad
Happens before your period is due
Happens before a positive pregnancy test
Early pregnancy spotting:
Can be pink, light brown, dark brown or red
Can be heavier than just spotting
Happens anytime during pregnancy (most commonly in the first trimester)
If you had heavier spotting that was red during pregnancy that lasted more than 3 days, you had early pregnancy spotting.
If you had light pink spotting that only lasted a couple wipes a few days before your period was due and then got a positive pregnancy test a few days later, you most likely had implantation bleeding.
Good luck to all the ladies trying for that baby!
