A 36-year-old member asked:

Can implantation bleeding still occur on day 16 after conception?

Yes: Implantation bleeding occurs when the embryo is starting to grow into the wall of the uterus. This occurs starting around day 14 and for 1-2 weeks after. So any spotting or light bleeding for a couple of days during that time can be implantation bleeding.

A 25-year-old female asked:

Can implantation bleeding occur the last day of a period?

Unlikely: Implantation occurs on average 9 days after ovulation and fertilization. It can happen as early as 6 days after ovulation or up to 12 days after ovulation. Your menstrual cycle (period) usually starts 12-14 days after ovulation, if your egg was not fertilized. Thus, if you are menstruating it is usually a sign that you are not pregnant.

A 46-year-old member asked:

Can implantation bleeding occur day 14 of cycle?

No: You can have breakthrough bleeding anytime in the cycle. If you really do have 'implantation bleeding' on cd 14 it would mean you ovulated and got pregnant on cd 7 or 8; and this is really unlikely.
