Implantation Bleeding = miscarriage???

I have this idea in my head... that I'm not sure where I got it exactly... I have looked up some stuff on the internet that seems to show a correlation between implantation bleeding and early miscarriage or missed abortion.

Something to do with the embryo not getting totally implanted so then it pulls away a little and reattaches which will cause a slight spotting or maybe one wipe with blood (which is what I had).

I've never had this with my last two pregnancies which I carried to term and have two healthy children. I'm just wondering if any of you out there have found a correlation between the two...

Those who have had miscarriages... did you have implantation bleeding?

For me... the next time I conceive... if I have implantation bleeding... I'm going to be extra careful... I think I might even abstain from sex for awhile just to be sure that the little one sticks. Maybe I am just over analyzing or being paranoid. What do you all think??

Re: Implantation Bleeding = miscarriage???

Oh, Faith...I am so sorry about your miscarriage. I think we cross-posted on the ttc thread. At any rate, I hope your questions don't scare anybody! But on the other hand, they are good questions...

I had a miscarriage last July and I didn't have implantation bleeding...nor did I with my first two pregnancies (I have two daughters). So no correlation for me. For me, my progesterone levels were low...and I don't even know if that was a cause or an indication of another problem.

I am sure there are many women who have had implantation bleeding without miscarriages. I think I've read that implantation is caused by the zygote actually burrowing into the endometrium...not by breaking away and reattaching.

I hope that helps...but I do think it was a good question. <IMG SRC="">

Re: Implantation Bleeding = miscarriage???

Oh... I definitely didn't want to scare anyone... I know that there are many successful pregnancies where there is implantation bleeding... I didn't mean to insinuate otherwise *sorry guys if it came out that way*...

Thank you for the clarification Autumn. I am just so worried, I never ever want to have another miscarriage again.

Faith, I hope I didn't sound like I was censuring you in any way. I didn't mean to do that either! Please forgive me if I can across that way <IMG SRC=""> I am sorry...

Re: Implantation Bleeding = miscarriage???

I had tons of bleeding early in my pregnancy. I don't know if it was implantation bleeding or caused by hormones or what, but I bled heavily on a daily basis from weeks 2-4 and then again from about weeks 6-10. Other than that I have had a completely normal pregnancy and everything is fine at 32 weeks. I don't know how much bleeding is related to miscarriage, but my doctor/midwife did not seem to be concerned at all about it.

I had a miscarriage before I was pregnant with my son, had absolutely no bleeding, no symptoms either, just gained 15 pounds in 2 weeks, on me that's a lot. I think my hormones were going crazy.

Re: Implantation Bleeding = miscarriage???

Hi Faith,

I've never heard of that connection before. I had a m/c last May and had no implantation bleeding. I'm now 10 weeks pregnant and no bleeding with this one either. It's hard to prove or disprove anything when it comes to pregnancy. It seems there are a lot of statistics out there. All we can do is hope that things will work out for the best, and know that things happen for a reason.

Re: Implantation Bleeding = miscarriage???

Faith: Thanks for you input on m/c and implantation bleeding. I've often wondered about that myself. My personal situation: I m/c at 15wks. I had spotting in my 5th week until maybe 6 or 7 weeks. I was told to take progesterone and 1 week after stopping, I had a m/c. However, I've always wondered why that spotting happened in the beginning. It bothered my then to spot, but the doctors always reassured me. I NEVER spotted with my previous 2 children. My second m/c, I didn't spot at all, just woke up in the night with cramping and that was it (6wks pg).

I searched the internet high and low for explanations "why" my m/c happened. I personally feel that each individual has their own "reasons" why it happens. I basically have stopped searching and started praying. I just hope that I will be given this one last opportunity to have my baby and that we are both happy and healthy during a very LONG, wonderful...9mths.
Still TTC!! Heres to hoping! <IMG SRC="">
