How can menstruation be distinguished from implantation bleeding?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 03/16/2018

Implantation bleeding occurs when the embryo adheres to the uterine wall and causes a small wound in the endometrium, although this does not always take place.

Therefore, the implantation bleeding occurs a few days before the expected date of the period, i.e. when the embryo implantation takes place. Furthermore, the bleeding that takes place is much scarcer and lighter than that of menstruation.
