Implantation Bleeding and...
I would like to know:
1. When you've ovulated and do not have implantation bleeding +- 9 days after does it mean that you didn't conceive or that it's possibly and ectopic preg? Is there a rule that says you have to have implantation bleeding?
2. Does your first week of pregnancy get counted from conception or implantation?
3. About a week after ovulation I have had a white discharge, what is it, should I be worried?

Thank you for your assistance, it's much appreciated!

Not all women have implantation bleeding so it does not mean anything.
Length of pregnancy is counted from the last period.
A clear non-itchy non-smelly discharge is probably normal.
