Pregnancy Symptom: Implantation Bleeding

Implantation bleeding is one of the signs of pregnancy. Once the ovulation is over, the egg moves into the uterus and settles into the lining of it. After this, there is a small clot of bleeding. This is known as implantation bleeding or implantation spotting. This typically occurs a week before the period date, thus it is confused of being an early start of period. But, an implantation bleeding looks different from that of the menstrual bleeding. It is generally pink or brownish in colour and it is very scanty. It is not very common with all the women, but fairly common. The kind of bleeding is named after the attachment implantation. The egg has an attachment with it known as the implantation. This attachment is made of small cells clustered together. This implantation is also known as blastocyst. The sizes of the cells are even smaller than that of the heads of the pins that women use for their hair. Once the egg completes it journey through the fallopian tube and buries itself in the uterus lining, the implantation becomes redundant. This then comes out as a discharge. It generally occurs within a week after ovulation.
