Vaginal bleeding originates closer to the entrance, and is not normal. Also, it may produce more blood and bleeds longer if not cleaned. Consult a doctor if vaginal bleeding occurs.

How can you tell the difference between an early period and implantation bleeding?

Vaginal bleeding is a period/menstruation. if you bleed for another reason you should see a doctor.

i see my period on the 1 of november and again on the 25 of im wondering if its my period or vaginal bleeding

You can tell when you're starting your period because you start to see vaginal bleeding - spotting which is brown or pink discharge, or a full bleed. Not all vaginal bleeding is menstruation but it's typically safe to assume this is the cause of vaginal bleeding.

Vaginal bleeding is a period, not sure what you mean. If you have a cut down there when you wipe if you see a small amount of blood. but if there is blood in the tiolet and alot of blood on the tissue then that's a period.

Vaginal bleeding can happy during a period and it can be slightly painful but it should not be uncomfortable. It certainly shouldn't be painful all time. If a person is bleeding from the vagina and it's not during a period she should go to a doctor.

If you are having a period, you are not pregnant. However many women confuse their periods with vaginal bleeding and vaginal bleeding can be a sign of pregnancy particularly in early pregnancy.

When I am on my period or after having sex with my husband and I have reached an orgasm.

Vaginal bleeding does not affect a pregnancy test.

You probably won't have a period during pregnancy. It will more than likely by implantion bleeding, a cervical change that causes vaginal bleeding or a miscarriage.

I'm not sure what the difference is between bleeding during your period and bleeding "after your period" in the first three months of birth control pill use, you may have unscheduled bleeding. This side effect usually goes away after three months. If you're having bleeding that's troublesome, or that's associated with pain or unusual vaginal discharge, talk to your health care provider.

You can't have your period while being pregnant. However, you can have vaginal bleeding frequently during your first trimester.

The most basic test would be a taste test (I know, disgusting but it works). Period blood and blood from vaginal bleeding look the same, but taste completely different. Period blood is sweet tasting (because of the abundance of hormone in it) and vaginal blood is copper tasting. Hope this helped.

They don't have a period hun. They experience vaginal bleeding which is known as implantation bleeding. A pregnant Woman will not experience a normal, heavy flow period.

No, you cannot have periods after you are pregnant. You can have minor vaginal bleeding but it is not a full period flow.

If you bleed lightly during your periods it is probably because you are ovulating. The difference between a period and implantation bleeding is that a period is heavier and lasts for longer and will need a tampon or sanitary towel, but implantation bleeding is light, not constant and only lasts about 1-2 days. You only need a pantyliner

Hi, *Period: - A period is a normal period, normal flow for you around the time you expect your period to arrive. You can not be pregnant and have a normal period. A period signifies that no egg has been fertilised and the egg breaks down and causes the period. * Implantation Bleeding: - Implantation Bleeding occurs 8-12 days after unprotected sex when the egg has been fertilised by the sperm. Not every woman experiences implantation bleeding and it is not as common as many people believe. When implantation bleeding occurs its usually spotting of blood or light bleeding which lasts a few hours to 2 (sometimes 3) days. Implantation bleeding can be: * Light bleeding in underwear. * Bleeding not requiring a pad or tampon. * Bleeding or streaks of blood on tissue paper when you wipe. * Pinkish bleeding which is light. * Brown bleeding which is light. * Discoloured pinkish, redish or brownish vaginal discharge.

It's unlikely, but possible if the vaginal bleeding was not a true period.

You may experience light vaginal bleeding but it will not be your period.

The biggest clue that you're menstruating is vaginal bleeding - although there can be other causes of vaginal bleeding, it is continues over a few days it is most likely menstruation.
