Customer Question
Hi Dr J. I read...
Hi Dr J. I read online that my symptoms (late painful bleed) could be a sign that I did conceive but the implantation failed. If that's the case, what should I look into in order to prevent this from happening again. What causes implantation failure? Thanks!

Good morning.

If this has just happened once in the absence of a positive pregnancy test (because a pregnancy test will turn positive if an egg is fertilized by a sperm, once that embryo starts making enough pregnancy hormone called beta HCG, regardless of where or how or when it implants), I don't think we can make any kind of assumption about it yet.

If you've been trying for over 6 months though, it might be time (if you wish) to talk to an obgyn about some testing to see exactly what the problem is.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
