Implantation (Definition)

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.

I ovulated 4 days ago and now I have cramp like pain on the left side of my abdomen I am TTC could this be implantation pain??

I ovulated 4 days ago and now I have cramp like pain on the left side of my abdomen I am TTC could this be implantation pain??

Unlikely: Implantation may cause some spotting, but it is unlikely for it to cause noticeable pain. The pain that you're having is more likely to be pain related to fluid from the ruptured follicle when it released an egg. That fluid can be irritating to your pelvis. The pain, as long as it is moderate, should go away on its own but if it worsens or persists longer than 48 hours, see a doctor. ...Read more

Agree w Dr. Anyanwu: The timing would not be correct. It takes longer than that for the implantation to occur. Usually there is no bleeding with implantation or just a tiny amount. ...Read more

Trying to conceive. I ovulated about a week ago, now I'm having bad cramping on the right side. Could this be implantation cramps?

Possible: Implantation generally occurs 6 1/2 to 7 days after ovulation and fertilization. Some women will increase implantation bleeding and/or some mild cramping; but if you do not have it, it does not mean you are not pregnant. Hope this helps. Good luck. ...Read more

Ovulated 8 days ago had sex, started cramps 5 days ago steadily getting worse, started bleeding yesterday thick clots and reddish brown, implantation?

Ovulated 8 days ago had sex, started cramps 5 days ago steadily getting worse, started bleeding yesterday thick clots and reddish brown, implantation?

No: A woman bleeding "thick clots" from her vagina doesn't have to consider "implantation" as a cause. However, she can check a urine pregnancy test if she could be pregnant, and of course, contact her doctor if her bleeding of thick clots persists or worries her a lot. Home urine pregnancy tests are very accurate 3 weeks after sex, or 1 week after missing a period or having a "weird" period. ...Read more

Neither: That is likely a results of your hormones being low. And that may be related to your infertility. At some point soon if not already you will likely want a fertility evaluation to see why things have taken so long. ...Read more

After ovulation, when implatation, or fetilization occurs, does it make you feel cramps and make you feel like af is comming?

No: Some women will feel when they ovulate, release an egg from the ovary. There can be no sensation at the time the sperm merges with the egg, fertilization, or when the early embryo implants in the uterus. What do you mean by af? I imagine not atrial fibrillation! ...Read more

Can I have implantation on the day I ovulate? Had active sex ovulated this morning n have cramping im no longer ovulating

Probably not: Implantation generally occurs 6 1/2 to 7 days after you ovulate and the egg is fertilized. Cramping, on the other hand, is common in many women at the time of ovulation. Sperm, however, live for about 3-4 days in the reproductive tract and sometimes up to 10 days. Hope this helps. ...Read more

How do I know when ovulation happens? And when implantation takes place?

How do I know when ovulation happens? And when implantation takes place?

Ovulation happens: 1) around CD 14 in a 28-day cycle, or 2) about 14 days before your period in a non 28-day cycle, and 3) within about 24-48 hours after first positive on an OPK, and 4) when a follicle is about 16-18 mm on ultrasound in a natural cycle. Also about 36 hours after an hCG trigger shot. Implantation happens no sooner than 6-7 days after ovulation, but there's no way to detect until a positive test. ...Read more

I do patient lifting to a stretcher/ and sliding. I ovulated 6/10 6/12. Can this affect implantation? When can I test? LMP 5/24 had Chemical M/C.

No effect: Your occupation and your straining/exercise shouldn't affect your chances of implantation given that any pregnancy that occurs would be very small and be shielded from the pressure by the cushioning of the uterus. Only test if you don't get your period in two weeks. You should be in close contact with an OB/GYN if you're trying to conceive because of your age. ...Read more

Cycle day 10. 2 follicles measure 12 and 14. Lining currently measures 6. Will lining likely to be thick enough for implantation by time I ovulate?

Already there: We like to see a minimum of 6 mm endometrial thickeningj. Thicker is better tho. And at only day 10 the lining should be even better. Also, the follicles should be 16mm and the 2 you have should grow to that as well.

You are close. ...Read more
