Implantation timing Implantation of a fertilized egg usually occurs about 6 to 10 days after conception. For a pregnancy to happen, the embryo needs to implant successfully into the uterine lining, which has become thicker for this purpose. Implantation is when the fertilized egg burrows into the uterine lining and begins to grow. 4  Implantation usually occurs between 6–10 days after the egg is fertilized. 5. So, if you have a 28-day menstrual cycle and ovulate on the 14th day, implantation would occur somewhere between day 20 and 24 of your cycle.

Implanting gives the blastocyst a blood supply so that it can start growing into a fetus. Along with cramping, you may experience what is called implantation bleeding or spotting. This usually. O ne of the most interesting questions in early pregnancy is when exactly does implantation happen?

Implantation happens on average 9.1 days after ovulation and fertilization with a range of 6-12 days (based on a study published in 1999 by Wilcox). What happens before implantation?Getting Pregnant.

She has over a decade of experience writing about science, technology, and. Implantation is often described as a window because it occurs about 8 to 9 days after fertilization, though it can happen as early as 6 days and as late as 12 days after ovulation. While many consider fertilization to be the start of pregnancy, successful implantation is the more crucial hurdle. What are the signs and symptoms of implantation?The timing of implantation bleeding is nearly same as menses.

Technically menses the must occur before period, but implantation can take longer. Implantation bleeding is the spotting due to egg embedment in the lining of the uterus. The early embryo causes the shifting of blood vessels of the endometrial lining. In most cases, implantation takes place around nine days after ovulation, but sometimes it may occur as early as seven days or as late as 12 days. So, if ovulation takes place on the 14th day after a period (average 28-day cycle), implantation might occur on the 23rd day.

During ovulation, the ovaries release the eggs. According to the American Pregnancy Association, the signs of implantation occur just before your next period. They say that implantation signs are usually noticeable 10 to 14 days after ovulation.

2 Therefore, it’s easy to confuse signs of implantation with the onset of your menstrual period. It can be difficult to know exactly when implantation happens. A fertilized egg takes between 6 to 12 days after ovulation to implant itself in the uterine lining.

1. How soon after implantation you take the test. There needs to be enough concentration of hCG for a positive pregnancy test result.

List of related literature:

Implantation is a process that is limited in both time and space, begining 2–3 days after the fertilized egg enters the uterus usually on day 18 or 19 of the cycle (3 or 4 days after ovulation).130 Thus, implantation occurs 5–7 days after fertilization.

A careful study of women attempting to conceive documented that the first hormonal evidence of implantation (the appearance of hCG) occurred on 8, 9, or 10 days after ovulation; the earliest was 6 days and the latest 12 days.”

If an egg is fertilised soon after ovulation (within hours) it will take the zygote about 5–6 days to reach the uterus and another day to become embedded in the endometrium (implantation) and produce sufficient hCG to establish the pregnancy.

After reaching the uterus, the developing blastocyst usually remains in the uterine cavity an additional 1 to 3 days before it implants in the endometrium; thus, implantation ordinarily occurs on about the fifth to seventh day after ovulation.
