Implantation Bleeding

What Does Fetal

Implantation Bleeding?

Implantation bleeding is a name often attributed to mild bleeding that occurs in very early pregnancy that is said to be caused by the burrowing of a fertilized egg into the blood-rich uterine lining. This theory hasn't been proven in scientific studies and isn't probable based on the microscopic size of an embryo.

It is important to note that there is not a lot of scientific data surrounding implantation or implantation bleeding as it is difficult to study in human pregnancies. A lot of times implantation bleeding is a “diagnosis of exclusion” meaning a woman with bleeding in early pregnancy may get a work-up to determine the cause of bleeding and if no specific reason is discovered then it may be referred to as implantation bleeding.

Implantation bleeding may be referred to as early pregnancy bleeding.
