Implantation Bleeding?

If I do have implantation bleeding, how long should it last - I'm still spotting but now its more black (sorry for the graphic details!) I did call my gynae and they said to wait it out or go for a blood test. I've decided to wait until the morning and see if I'm any heavier as it could also be the start of my period according to gynae. Info on how long this should last would be great.

It varies form person to person, but is usually a small amount. It could last 3-4 days. I would agree with your gynaecologist that you wait and see whether your period starts.
