Most likely just your period. But if you are concerned, just take a pregnancy test. They are pretty accurate when used correctly.

I have heard that spoting can be an implantation bleeding, if after a week you still havent got your af (period) take a pregnancy test to make sure.

Happy to help

What is can go wrong if you have implantation bleeding?

Implantation Bleeding 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. This is called implantation bleeding. This is sometimes confused for an early period. What does implantation bleeding or spotting look like? Implantation bleeding, also called implantation spotting, does not look like a regular menstrual period. Implantation bleeding is scanty and usually pink or brownish discharge. Implantation bleeding or menstrual period? Implantation bleeding normally occurs a week to a few days before your period would normally start. Spotting that occurs around a week after ovulation is likely implantation bleeding; whereas, spotting that occurs very close to the time that your period would normally start may not be. A normal menstrual cycle generally starts off light and then gets heavier. Spotting can sometimes be the sign of an early period. If this is the case, the spotting will pick up to heavier bleeding. If you have spotting right around the time your period would normally start, it can be more confusing. You will need to take the wait and see approach or take a pregnancy test to determine pregnancy.

What does it mean if I have been having a light amount of brown spotting 4 days in a row and I am 6 days away from when my period should start?

This is most likely implantation bleeding. Implantation is the process of the fertilized egg becoming attached to the womb or uterus. In most cases, the egg is fertilized by a sperm in the fallopian tube. The fertilized egg, or embryo, reaches the blastocyst stage a few days after it is fertilized, and in the uterus will attach itself to the uterine lining. This is implantation - and implantation bleeding can be a result. Implantation bleeding, which is typically a brown discharge that may result in light spotting, will not necessarily appear with every pregnancy. If implantation is successful, the developing placenta will begin to produce the hormone hCG, which can be detected by a home pregnancy test. Implantation bleeding may appear as a light, brown spotting. It typically takes place a handful of days after ovulation.

Could you be preg your due to start you period this past Sunday you started spotting on Saturday which is very uncommon you've never spotted your period is VERY light doesnt even fill a tampon?

If your bleeding is that light you shouldn't be using tampons at all, it's unsafe. You wouldn't menstruate while pregnant, you may see spotting as a result of implantation bleeding but it's ore likely if you're bleeding when due your period it's likely your period. If unsure take a pregnancy test.

How do you know if its implantation bleeding or your period 2 weeks early?

Ovulation occurs two weeks before menstruation, if you conceive then it takes around 6-10 for a fertilized egg to implant itself - this is when you experience implantation bleeding. If you're bleeding two weeks before menstruation it is not likely to be implantation bleeding, possibly ovulation bleeding.

Is it possible to have Implant bleeding 17 dpo that is light brownish pink. 2 days light bleading and 4 days spotting.?

Can you phrase that in the form of a sentence please? You are most likely experiencing a light period. 17 DPO is a little bit late for implantation bleeding. If you know the day that you O'ed, I'm assuming you are charting your temps. Have your temps all been high, or have they dropped below the cover line? If they've dropped, you are not pregnant, and you did not have implantation bleeding. Also, implantation bleeding is generally only a few drops -- not enough to fill a sanitary napkin or qualify as "light bleeding".
