Spotting

Very Early Pregnancy Symptom

Symptom Details

Implantation bleeding or spotting is a normal pregnancy symptom and may occur from 6-12 days after conception. Many women do not experience this symptom at all. Each woman who does will experience it very differently - Some will spot lightly for a couple of hours, while others may have some light spotting for a few days. If the bleeding occurs after the expected period, it is usually not attributed to implantation. Studies show that anywhere from 20-30% of women experience some degree of bleeding in early pregnancy. Approximately half of pregnant women who bleed will go on to have a normal, healthy pregnancy. Be sure to contact your physician if you experience heavy bleeding or bleeding accompanied by painful cramping, or if you feel the bleeding is not "normal".

Comparison Chart

The chart below shows a comparison between the number of times this symptom was experienced by pregnant vs non-pregnant women.


**NOTE: Data for 15-21 dpo tends to be lower than expected as many women stop tracking symptoms after a positive pregnancy test.
