hope someone can shed some light (pun unintended!) on implantation spotting for me! sorry if this is a stock question.

how is implantation spotting different that normal pre- or post-period spotting? i've heard colors all over the board so that doesn't seem to be a reliable indicator.

would creamy CM that has a brownish-pinkish tinge rather than spotting as such (or what is "normal spotting" for a specific woman) be an indication of implantation?

or is there really just no difference?

thanks in advance!

I think it would be the same as pre-AF spotting, although I have never experienced 'implantation' spotting. Honestly, I don't think implantation spotting is very common. I think some get it, but most do not. I had spotting during my pregnancy starting at 5 weeks and off and on until around 9 weeks. It was very light brownish spotting. I didn't consider it 'implantation spotting' because it occured later than implantation, which would be 7-10 dpo typically. HTH a little.

Yes your description sounds perfect. I had implantation spotting last month for 3 solid days. It was reddish-brown (mostly brown) and was about 7-10dpo. It's pretty uncommon, I think FF says 10% of women get it. It wasn't red like normal AF but if you have light periods I could see how it might be confusing. :!
