Er won't do anything. But if you are not cramping or its not heavy I wouldnt worry about it.but to put your mind at ease call your doctor.

Call your doctor if you ever are worried about something. Most women spot or lightly bleed in early pregnancy.  My doc said it was common.  I bled with 2 of my 3 pregnancies with happy outcomesm

I had the same things happening at 7 weeks, its normal. Just make sure to not have sex or anything for a couple of days. Thats what caused my bleeding. I am now almost 23 weeks with a healthy babygirl

Implantation bleeding isn't supposed to occur after 4 weeks ...that's what my dr said...

Implantation could happen all the way up 6 to 7 weeks. Ur dr. Needs to check his medical books. I'm studying in the medical field right now and it could happen. Any time between those weeks.

Implantation bleeding happens 4 to 7 days before your missed period you would not have a positive pregnancy test if the baby had not implanted yet I would get your spotting checked out if it is a miscarriage there is nothing that can be done while you are so early along sometimes spotting is normal due to your cervix being more sensitive and full of blood but other times it's pointing to a problem so it's always better to be safe than sorry and have your doctor tell you if it is normal or not good luck

No offense to your studies but I would believe a doctor that has their degree over someone who is still in school...it's not necessarily implantation bleeding everytime someone has spotting early on...I was told that when I was spotting around 6 or 7 weeks it's just leaking from my cervix bc my body has 50 percent more blood than its used to and sometimes it takes a few weeks for you cervix and other things to adjust. But every pregnancy is different that was the case for my spotting

With my first pregnancy I had bleeding like a period. And I went to the emergency room. They told me my baby died and dissolved in the sack and I was having a miscarriage. It was a man Dr and he was rude. He gave me 2 different types of medicine for pain. But I wasn't in pain thank god I didn't take the medicine. I was 5wks and my son wasn't formed yet. I went to the gyno the following Monday and there was my little baby with a heart beat. All that suffering for nothing. After that I had a normal and healthy pregnancy and birth of a 7lb 4oz baby boy. If you aren't hurting I wouldn't worry about it. I also miscarried this past July at around 6wks. But I had had cramping the whole time and I started bleeding like a period and I went to er they couldn't see any baby or heart beat. A few days latter I passed a bloody hard ball bigger that the size of a quarter so I knew that was my baby. Very depressing...
