What Is the Difference between Implantation Bleeding and Mentrual Period?

Answer

Implantation bleeding occurs during the first trimester of pregnancy. This is a light bleeding which happens about four weeks after the pregnant woman's last menses. The fertilized egg invades the endometrial cavity and implants itself which causes disruption of blood vessels, thus the bleeding. The menstrual period is experienced by women who are not pregnant. Every month, the endometrium or the uterine lining thickens to prepare for the eventual fertilization of the egg.
