Myths: Implantation bleeding is a myth that has no basis in the real world. The bleeding is something else. Remember to have implantation there has to be a fetus. Babies are conceived one to five days after a sexual encounter when the ovaries release an egg. It takes several days to transit through the fallopian tubes and into the uterus. There is zero chance implantation happens 3 days after a period.
