Doctor:You can see if the bleeding is continuing, even if it is in the same amount.
Doctor:Probably, you are not pregnant.

Doctor:But, implantation bleeding is not bleeding as such.
User:so i am not ablle to make out if this is normal
Doctor:It is just a staining.

User:ok i will wait for 2 days
Doctor:In case, it does not come to normal periods, then later on, after the bleeding stops, you can go for a pregnancy test.
