What color was the spotting? While implantation bleeding *can* be light pink, it is rare. It is most often brown, and it will never be red. Typically, it also should just be there when you wipe, so nothing dripping into the toilet or on your undies.

There’s no way to know which it is, Implantation or AF, until afterwards. Either you get a BFP or AF shows up. 

These boards also make implantation bleeding sound way more common than it is. I think it’s less than 10% of people have implantation bleeding. I’ve been pregnant 3 times, and never had implantation bleeding.

@mrscross1020 I feel like this happened to me!  This is prob Too Much Information, but hopefully there’s no judgement here! Over the weekend (roughly 8 dpo) Darling Husband and I did the BD.  It was night time and dark and I didn’t notice anything when I went to the bathroom after, but the next morning I did see that there was a small amount of dark brown/red blood (like seriously not much at all) on the sheets – they are white so it was easy to see.  It wouldn’t be worthy of a period by any means.. but definitely something.  I had taken a FRER that morning, as it was a holiday weekend with friends and parties and wanted to check in before having anything to drink and got a BFN, which was sort of expected, but with BD on O day and right after, I wanted to at least check in.  If the magic happened around O day, then about a week later would be sort of acurate for implantation bleeding right?  I’m now about 12 dpo, boobs are so sore and I have had the most insane dreams  all week.  I don’t want to get my hopes up yet as AF symptoms can be similar for many, though the sore boob thing never happens for me for this long.  AF due to arrive Monday, but I think I will test again with FRER this weekend since I might be the most impatient person alove.  Good luck to you! Keep us posted!

Our first cycle of TTC I had a really really light period about a week early that was brown and only appeared when I wiped. I didn’t need a tampon/pad at all. I was super hopeful that it was implantation bleeding (especially because it seems so common on the boards). I was convinced that I was for sure pregnant because the whole cycle felt so different so I tested and…. got a BFN. I got a BFP on our second cycle and didn’t have any spotting at all. I had cramping and a bit of nausea, but no implantation bleeding even though I was convinced I would have it at some point aha! FX for you – it can go either way 🙂 Good luck!
