Can implantation occur a little less than 48 hours after sex? Positive pregnancy test less than 48 hrs after intercourse as well.
Anatomy : Nope. Absolutely not. First: the sperm have to swim through the cervix, through the uterus, out the fallopian tube and find an ovulated egg. This takes more than 48 hours.
