It is never easy to be a woman. Every month, they “bleed”, with accompanying discomfort, as part of their menstrual period. The discomfort this brings varies among women. Some would say that aside from the obvious bleeding, they do not feeling anything else. For some, however, the discomfort brought about by menstruation is unbearable a highly a nuisance. However, “bleeding” of a woman does not necessarily translate to one’s usual monthly cycle, because it could also mean other things. Among the other possible reasons for bleeding includes cervical cancer, uterine tumors, ectopic pregnancy, or even Implantation Bleeding.
Implantation Bleeding can be an early sign of pregnancy for almost a third of all women who are pregnant. Implantation basically means the descent of the unified sperm and egg cell, also known as the fertilized egg cell or “zygote”, into the uterus so it can implant itself unto its wall for growth and development. This is a very important process inside a pregnant woman because the nutrients that can be taken through the connection of the fertilized egg cell and the wall of uterus give nutrients to the early from of the baby. In the absence of implantation, the baby would cease to exist. During implantation, the fertilized cell will penetrate deep into the wall of the uterus in an attempt to establish a connection with the blood vessels present in the area. In doing so, this may cause damage in nearby blood vessels of the woman’s uterus thus causing Implantation Bleeding. Blood will leak down into the cervix and vagina, and will then cause a blood appearance resembling that of the normal menstrual cycle. Implantation bleeding may in turn be a form of a clue to orient a woman that she is conceiving a newly fertilized baby.
