Getting familiar with differences

The embryo splits and grows at the developmental stage once the sperms fertilizes. This further alters the endometrius (Uterus walls). Most women around the globe also start experiencing implantation bleeding during this phase. This should not be considered as alarming as it is a phenomenon that is natural. During pregnancy this often happens at an early stage and can be mistaken for menstrual cycle. You can clearly notice the difference in the color, duration and thickness.

So you can notice the differences in a number of ways.


The flow cycle is the main factor that differentiates between the normal MC and implantation bleeding. The moment you are experiencing bleeding on account of implantation it will not be thick. During MC the bleeding gets thicker for women during later states of the cycle. Implantation bleeding may never cause formation of blood clots.

Also during implantation bleeding you may notice light bleeding pattern and will never get heavier.

symptoms and pictures


During implantation bleeding the color of the flow will be pink or brown. If you experience red color bleeding then it is more likely to be MC. Most online websites will provide you with symptoms and pictures of the two types on their websites.

In only very rare cases you may notice that the bleeding gets a bit reddish in color. If red in color then it means that the blood is flowing out from the lining of the uterine.

At the time of implantation women may also notice smelly odor with the flow of blood. This in general happens if the blood has been accumulated in the internal walls of the uterus.

 Ass during implantation the blood takes time to flow out of the uterus so it changes its color into brown. This is because the color of the aged blood is lightly brown.


In both cases you may experience cramping along with pain. If the cramps are more intense then it is associated with MC. Light cramps are associated with implantation bleeding.

Apart from this you also need to notice the consistency of the bleeding cycle. If the bleeding and spotting is not consistent then it is implantation bleeding. During MC it will be consistent.
