1 doctor agrees
In brief: From implant-9wk
Although some will quibble and call a fertilized egg an embryo, most agree that the true embryonic stage starts with implantation of the fertilized egg in the womb and continues to the end of the eighth week.
From 9 wks to delivery is considered the fetal period.
