As far as I know, a light period is just that...a light period. Implantation bleeding usually occurs a couple days before your period is due, and is just spotting, usually pink-ish or light brown in colour.

Can you tell the difference between implantation bleeding caused by pregnancy and a regular period?

A period can normally go from light to heavy to light as implantation bleeding is scanty and light. Normally your period is red but implantation bleeding can be pink or a brown discharge. When I had implantation bleeding it lasted 5 days and it was a very light brown color. Answer: Yes most the time you can tell the difference. Sometimes people get it confused with their period tho if they are irregular or just think that was it. Best thing to do is wait a week after what might be implantation and take a test for best results.

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.

Can you bleed heavy and have bad cramps when you have implantation bleeding?

I'd say no. Implantation bleeding is scant to light. Heavy bleeding and cramping sound like a period to me.

I was supposed to start my period on the 7.1.09 which i did but it was very light. the second day it was like a consistent red blood but not as heavy as usual. Is this my period or implantation bleedi?

Implantation bleeding is normally just light spotting but many women vary. It could be implantation bleeding but sounds more like a light period to me expecially if your last period was heavy. Take a home pregnancy test 2 days after your period would have been due if indeed you are pregnant you should get an accurate result by then. hope this helps
