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. A very popular concept on the internet now in 2012, 'implantation bleeding, ' is speculative ...Read more

I had unprotected sex on may 1. Ovulated around may 8. Next day light spotting and light cramps. IS THAT IMPLANTATION?!?!

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

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

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

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

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

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

I've been trying for a baby since jan 2012 my period was on 1/17. On feb 1 I had cramps and light bleeding is that implantaion or ovulation bleeding?

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

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

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

June 27 I ovulated june 29 I wiped brown it lasted untel the july 1 now its white discharge what is it could it be implantation?

No: Implantation occurs about 7 days after ovulation so spotting 2 days after ovulation would not be this. A white discharge could be due to many things, including normal discharge or infection. Hope this helps! ...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.

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

See below: It usually takes around 7 days from fertilization to implantation. The cramping could represent implantation, but it may be coincidental symptoms. Most people don't experience cramping, but that is not to say in your case that it couldn't be that. ...Read more

Timing is a bit off.: After fertilization, the fertilized egg travels slowly along the fallopian tube to the uterus. It usually arrives in the uterus about 6 days after conception and completes implantation by 12 days. It's possible that you're experiencing implantation bleeding, but it's a bit early. If you don't get your period on the 23rd, you should do a pregnancy test. ...Read more

I believe I ovulated this week. Currently doing ballet, which includes a lot of jumping. Could this affect implantation?

No, not at all: If ballet was a form of conception prevention or facilitation, there would be a whole lot more dancers! Unless you have very particular anatomy issues, which you should ask your gyn about if worried, then go ahead and dance. ...Read more

Use an OPK kit: Did you have a + pregnancy test then negative? Now your cycles are back after the Mirena (levonorgestrel) you can use an ovulation predictor kit (opk) - test between 10 am and noon, starting on day 10 of your cycle. The first morning urine is not accurate. Try the ovuquick brand (available online) if a drugstore test doesn't work for you. The day of a positive test and the next 2 days are your most fertile days. ...Read more

Eggwhite CM 7 days past ovulation? I checked with an OPK to see if I was ovulating again but it was negative. So is this a sign of implantation?

Wait and see: Implantation signs occur exclusively when someone is pregnant. You will have to wait until you can take a pregnancy test in about seven days. Then you will have your answer. Cervical mucus is not a reliable indicator. ...Read more

I have a September 3rd due. Lmp November 27. Implantation bleeding Dec 23rd. Since my implantation date is later could I have ovulated days later.

May be: Implantation bleeding would normally occur about a week after ovulation, so your due date is likely correct. Please note that normal delivery may occur anytime 2 weeks before or 2 weeks after the calculated due date.
I trust that you are under the care of a doctor.
Wish you good health and a healthy baby! ...Read more

Can implantation occur before I ovulate and right after 4 days of intercourse? I have a 28 days cycle and my paps is normal. ..Thank u please help me

No: No, implantation can not occur before ovulation. Only an embryo implants, and that is the combination of an egg and sperm. Once the sperm fertilizes the egg, it takes 5-6 days for the embryos to advance to the point of implantation. But all of that requires ovulation first. ...Read more
