Hi Bety,

Th ebleeding could be several things. First off is the blood bright red or dark brownish red? New blood, or fresh blood, is bright red and is more of a problemactic sign whereas brownisg blood, old blood, is not nearly as much of a big deal. Is it a lot of blood or just spotting?

Asuming that this is brownish blood, old blood, this could be implantation bleeding. I realize that you took an HPT (home pregnancy test) however they are not 100% accurate. Only the beta will confirm whether or not you are pregnant. If the blood is bright red this could be your menstrual cycle or some other medical issue. If the bleeding increases you should call your doctor and let them know so that they can check you out.

Good Luck!


Generally, implantation bleeding is very light spotting, dark brownish red, and usually only lasts for up to 48 hours. Obviously every on is slightly different so they can have longer spotting, brighter spotting, etc.

With my first IVF cycle I ended up with an ectopic pregnancy. I started spotting brownish red and it wouldn't stop. It then became bright red blood, sometimes light and sometimes heavy. I thought all of this was from implantation but then it wouldn't stop, it was getting heavier and brighter red. turned out the blood was because the embrio was burrowing near blood vessels in my fallopian tube and some other things (too long to go into).

I'm not saying that you're bleeding is definately an ectopic....not at all. Give it one more day to see if it stops. In the mean time you should definately call your doctor to let them know what's going on. Maybe they will move up the beta?
