Implantation bleeding or a period

Hello I started bleeding a day before my period was due
On day 1 I bleed heavy filling up two pads
On day 2 same but I filled 2-3 pads
On the third day I filled about 1 pad
And today the forth day I'm having some light spotting
The color is dark red
And it has some clots
The cramping was usual for me
(If it helps my periods are normally 4 days and rarely 3 or 5 days
The first 2 days are usually heavy and the next two it starts getting light)
Could some one please help me out could this be implantation or is this a normal period

Hello Anonymous,

Because what you experienced was not spotting and does not match the other criteria.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I am glad you reached out to us with your question.

This was not implantation bleeding.

Implantation bledding is spotting that is pink or brown in color. It can happen about six to 12 days following conception. It never increases to a flow and lasts about 2 to 3 days.

Was there a chance you could have become pregnant since your last period?
Have you ever noticed clots dut in your period flow before?
