Continuous bleeding since pregnancy began?
September 13, 2010 3:39 PM Subscribe
My wife became pregnant near the end of last month. She's been spotting continuously since implantation began, which means roughly 14 days. We're worried, and are looking for anecdotes from others who've had lengthy implantation bleeding.

Most sources online suggest implantation bleeding should only last a few days, but "may sometimes go on for as long as 10-14 days". She's about to pass that, and the bleeding isn't showing any signs of letting up.
She's definitely pregnant -- multiply-tested positive -- so it's not period flow.
The coloration was dark for most of that time, but has been getting brighter red in the last few days. In terms of flow, she describes it as "not enough flow to fill a pad". Basically, every time she pees and wipes, there's a little' bit of blood there.
She does NOT have significant cramping.
The OB/GYN wheels are turning, but they turn slowly, and we won't actually get to meet with one until later this week. Therefore, any accounts from others who've had a similar experience would be invaluable.
