It could still come up positive because this “12”DPO is a made up number by an app that uses aggregate data to determine an ovulation day based on your average cycle length. You’re not out til you’re out! That said, if you really were 12dpo an frer should be positive. 

Ps – implantation bleeding is a myth. There is no such thing. You may have had a secondary oestrogen surge that caused some spotting.

junebug14 :  Apps aren’t accurate enough to track ovulation because they just make a guess based on the average, so there’s a good chance you aren’t actually 12dpo. That means you might be earlier than 12dpo and might not be out yet!

Usually by 12dpo if you get a negative, it’s pretty definitive. There are studies that show that positives after 12dpo (assuming it was a BFN on 12dpo) mean the pregnancy may not have a good chance of survival (i.e. it took too long for the blasocyst to implant so it may be too weak).

I also 2nd what

if you implanted you would get a ‘+’ 2-3 days later so you cant have implanted 6 days ago

also Apps know nothing, they have no physical info about your body and symptom spotting will only drive you crazy

hopfenn :  Yup. I had a negative at 12dpo and then a positive at 15. And then I miscarried at 8 weeks. 

I know my dates are absolutely correct- after a year of this, I’ve got the temping and charting down pat! So yeah there’s always a possibility you can get a late positive, but I’d still be wary.

indiblue :  I’m disappointed that the NHS would use that term. Spotting comes from a drop in progesterone, usually a few days before your period. This happens in cycles where you’re pregnant or not. 

A fertilised embryo is so incredibly tiny, there’s no way it would displace enough uterine lining to cause bleeding!

jayrock :  Yeah, they even contradict themselves. They call it “implantation bleeding” but say it would happen around when your period is due, which likely isn’t when implantation is happening (depending on the person’s LP length).
