Out of 9 out of 10, they want to know: is this nesting bleeding ? When a speck of blood appears in the panties the suspicion soon comes! Is it the dreamed of nesting? Did it be my turn to be a mommy? However, not all bleeding is a sign that a baby is coming.
We must remember that other hypotheses must be considered, including menstruation . In fact, the biggest reason for thin bleeding is due to menstruation , it can take a few days to arrive and stay “dripping”. Meanwhile, hope exists and can slaughter a heart full of anxiety for a baby.
Come on, what indicates that it is a nesting and not menstruation coming? Normally menstruation comes with flow. Sometimes the flow can be less and confuse the woman, but if there is, even if it is a minimum flow it should still be considered as menstruation. Some women have a small amount of bleeding at the beginning of the flow, if it is not customary to go out and do not menstruate as usual, hope turns on a yellow light. However, before creating expectations, you must wait a few days to see if the flow will come as usual.
Nidation is Exception and Not Rule
Nesting bleeding is the exception and not the rule. Not all women who become pregnant see it. We can say that only 20% of women have this bleeding after implantation. The vast majority are unable to verify pregnancy through this bleeding. The bleeding of nesting is of very low flow, in fact, there should be no flow in this bleeding.
In fact, it happens by fixing the embryo and by the peeling that implantation favors in the endometrium . To better understand, let’s say that the uterus is a padded field where the baby will settle and when that happens, it will be necessary for the mattress to be opened to accommodate the baby in a small hole in the blood layer.
This sinking act would draw a small amount of blood from the endometrium and if there is a passage, the blood will flow out of the woman’s vagina. The vast majority of times that nesting bleeding occurs is without flow and for a short time.
How many days does Nidation last?
We can say that the nesting bleed must not exceed 3 days and must not flow. If so, something may be wrong. In these cases there is the possibility of low hormonal (progesterone) which would cause an imminent risk to the recent pregnancy and in this case you need help from a gynecologist.
Breeding Bleeding – Characteristics
But how do I know that the bleeding I had is for breeding ? How do you know it is not just an escape ? Simple, the nesting bleed is when there is pregnancy . Only with the presence of HCG in the body, it is possible to give 100% certainty that the bleeding that happened was actually a breeding .
Escape by Medication Deprivation
Remember that not all blood is implanted , it can have several other reasons, including escape and ovulation when appropriate. Some women may experience bleeding due to medications they were taking or taking, such as the contraceptive pill or the following day pill .
In this case these bleeds are escapes due to deprivation of the medication or even some sign of the body in relation to the medication. In this case there is no reason to panic if you don’t want to get pregnant. Let a few days pass and if you do not have menstrual flow, do a test to clear up the doubt.

How Long After Nesting Bleeding Can I Get Tested?
Only after implantation, the pregnancy hormone HCG is produced. Before that, there may be evidence of it in the body. A theory of mine , is that fertilization provides a minimum amount of HCG, where those small values, above 2.0, would appear. Sometimes the value reaches 5 or even 6mUi of HCG due to the implantation. However, the values are only considerable above 25mUI.
If done a long time before, the chances of having an indeterminate HCG beta are very high. This is if the exam done is the quantitative , because the qualitative will not detect numbers as low as these. We can say that the quantitative HCG beta can be done from the 5th day after implantation and possible nidation bleeding, but always when it happens within 7 to 15 days after sexual intercourse. However, it is advisable to have an exam done from the 20th day after intercourse to check for pregnancy.

Some pharmacy tests are able to detect HCG on the 2nd day after nesting . The most sensitive with 10mUi of minimum quantity can give a very weak line, sometimes almost imperceptible. This can make a big knot on the woman’s head. However, it is advisable to repeat the test in 48 hours, which is a reasonable period for the HCG to double in quantity. If the nesting bleeding does not stop, it is advisable to see a doctor.

Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
