No. Spotting does not prevent implantation. It is often a symptom of implantation. An egg is viable (for fusion with a spermatoza) when the egg "drops" right up to, and including, when the period starts. So, if you had unprotected sex during your ovulation window and you have spotting, then I suggest getting a pregnancy test ... unless you had your period after the spotting events. The sequence of events that you describe tells me that you could have experienced implantation bleeding ... however, if you have not been sexually active, then this is not the case. Either way, if the spotting /bleeding changes in intensity /duration, have your Gyno check it out for you.

I ovulated on the March 13 used a OPK started brownish discharge on 20th that lasted for a week luteal phase is 13 days Was this a period or some sort of implantation bleeding?

This looks like it could have been implantation bleeding since it was a week after you ovulated and since it was brownish in color. However, a week seems to be a long time for implantation bleeding. Perhaps it started out as implantation bleeding but then the implantation failed and you got your period.

Can implantation occur during a period?

No, I'm afraid not. If your period has started, that means that the endometrium has started to degrade and pass out of the body via the vagina. The endometrium is where the fertilised egg would implant, without it implantation cannot occur.

Intercourse 10 days ago Period started next day lasted 3 days Light pink spotting and breast tenderness 9 days after intercourse Are you pregnant?

There is a possibility that you may be pregnant. The spotting that you are experiencing is what they call implantation bleeding, which is when the egg attaches itself to the walls of the uterus. If you have a missed period I would definite advise you to take a pregnancy test. Good luck!!

I had a pos qual hcg yesterday but I had 2-3 days of bright red bleeding that required a pad or tampon that started about 3 days after conception. spotting for 6 more days. nothing for 6days now.?

Yes. You should see a gynecologist. possibly. after ovulation the egg travels into the uterus and burrows into the lining of the uterus. for some women, implantation will cause slight bleeding or spotting called implantation bleeding. this is typically looks like pink or brownish discharge though. how many days after conception did you begin to bleed?

Can you get pregnet if you haven't started your period?

Yes most definaltly but see but, you must have ovulated for you to become pregnate you may think you havent started but you could have ovulated which means the egg comes out of the floupian tube and sits in your uterus. When you have your period the egg wasnt fertilized so the blood washes the unfertilized egg out.
