Illnesseswith Symptoms Similar to Implantation Bleeding
There are two possible variants here: spotting without real pregnancy and bloody discharge during the first trimester of expecting a child (actually implantation bleeding itself happens two-three weeks after conception). The causes of these phenomena may coincide, but mostly they are diametrically opposite.
The roots of abnormal spotting, when pregnancy is excluded:
1. Cervical diseases and inflammations.
Bloody discharge can be a symptom of cervical ectropion, interstitial neoplasia and cervical cancer. Actually, all these diseases can be diagnosed only by a high-qualified specialist during a pelvic exam. Light forms, unlike advanced stages, do not cause bloody spotting.
The abnormal mid-cycle bloody discharge can appear because of the development of one or several uterine fibroids and cervical polyps. Spotting is also treated as a symptom of genital endometriosis and endometritis.
