What is the difference between a period and implantation bleeding?

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.
