Implantation (Overview)

One common meaning refers to the process by which an embryo attaches to the uterus of a woman so that she is pregnant. Many think of it as 'sticking.' implantation in humans always occurs when the embryo is between 6-7 days old. A very popular concept on the internet now in 2012, 'implantation bleeding, ' is speculative and mostly not useful.

Can implantation be brown and stringy? How long can it last? I've had a friend who had it for a month.

No such thing: There is no such thing as implantation bleeding. Imagine with me a fetus smaller than a speck of dust landing on the wall of the uterus.

On rare occasions some females get one or two spots of blood at this time, but they do not get bleeding from implantation. ...Read more
