This is when the sperm joins the egg and fertilization takes place.
About 7-14 days after you have had sex, implantation will occur—the fertilized egg will attach itself to the lining of your uterus.
About 1/3 of women will have some bleeding when implantation takes place.
You are now considered to be pregnant.

Where in the uterus does implantation occur?
Once fertilization occurs, the fertilized egg will travel the remaining way through the Fallopian tube to the uterus. Implantation is when the fertilized egg burrows into the uterine lining and begins to grow. Implantation usually occurs between eight and ten days after the egg is fertilized.
What are the signs of successful implantation?
The cramps and spotting are symptoms of successful implantation, but also early signs of pregnancy.
Here are some other early signs of pregnancy that you might experience:
- Delayed period.
- Sensitive breasts.
- Becoming moody.
- Avoiding certain foods.
- Feeling bloated.
- Blocked Noses.
- Becoming constipated.
Do you feel implantation on one side?
If you have mittleschmertz, otherwise known as ovulation cramping, you’ll feel a pinch or twinge on one side of your lower abdomen that occurs two weeks prior to your period. In contrast, implantation cramping is a dull pain that is felt around the general lower abdomen area and your lower back.
What prevents a fertilized egg from implanting?
Plan B acts primarily by stopping the release of an egg from the ovary (ovulation). It may prevent the union of sperm and egg (fertilization). If fertilization does occur, Plan B may prevent a fertilized egg from attaching to the womb (implantation).
Where do you feel implantation?
Cramping occurs around the same time as implantation bleeding and feels similar to menstrual cramps. They typically come and go in your lower abdomen or lower back.
In which layer of the uterus does implantation occur?
If implantation does not occur, the endometrium breaks down and sheds, along with the blastocyst, as part of the menstrual cycle. However, if a blastocyst does implant, then the endometrium remains in the uterus, and together with uterine tissue, becomes the maternal portion of the placenta, called the deciduas.
Can you feel egg implantation?
The symptoms of early pregnancy can vary greatly from woman to woman. Some women experience mild implantation cramping several days after ovulation, while others do not. Once the egg travels down the fallopian tubes and becomes a blastocyst, it begins the process of implantation in the uterus.
Do you get sore breasts during implantation?
PMS: During PMS, breast swelling and tenderness can occur during the second half of your menstrual cycle. The pain often improves during your period or right after, as your progesterone levels decrease. Pregnancy: Your breasts during early pregnancy may feel sore, sensitive, or tender to the touch.
How soon after implantation do you have symptoms?
The following early changes to your body may mean you’re pregnant: Spotting and cramping due to implantation bleeding about six to 12 days after conception. Breast soreness, tenderness, swelling, tingling or other changes one to two weeks after conception. Fatigue about one week after conception.
Can you have cramping on one side during early pregnancy?
During this time, it’s normal to feel sharp pains or dull aches in the lower abdomen. If you are pregnant with multiples, expect some cramping during the second trimester as your body makes extra room for the babies. While some cramping is normal, be on the lookout for signs of preterm labor.
Which side is the uterus left or right?
Some doctors specifically recommend that pregnant women sleep on the left side. Because your liver is on the right side of your abdomen, lying on your left side helps keep the uterus off that large organ.
Which side of uterus is baby girl?
According to Ramzi’s theory, the placement of the placenta in your uterus may determine the sex of your baby. If the location of the placenta is on the right side then the baby is a boy; if the location of the placenta is on the left side then the baby is a girl.
What happens if the fertilized egg doesn’t implant?
Chemical pregnancy: This occurs when the egg is fertilized but doesn’t implant itself or develop properly in your uterus. Incomplete miscarriage: An incomplete miscarriage happens when only some of the tissue leaves your vagina through heavy bleeding.
What percentage of fertilized eggs fail to implant?
Once the embryo reaches the blastocyst stage, approximately five to six days after fertilization, it hatches out of its zona pellucida and begins the process of implantation in the uterus. In nature, 50 percent of all fertilized eggs are lost before a woman’s missed menses.
What causes unsuccessful implantation?
Implantation failure is related to either maternal factors or embryonic causes. Failure of implantation due to embryonic causes is associated with either genetic abnormalities or other factors intrinsic to the embryo that impair its ability to develop in utero, to hatch and to implant.
How do you know when you’ve conceived?
But experiencing any of these early pregnancy symptoms before your period normally arrives could mean you’ve hit baby bingo:
- Tender breasts. Breasts are often the first body part to get the message when sperm meets egg.
- Darkening areolas.
- Sensitivity to smell.
How does implantation feel?
While abdominal cramps are never fun, implantation cramps shouldn’t be as uncomfortable as those you might get before and during your period. Instead, you might feel a prickly or tingling sensation in your abdomen, as well as light pressure. Check in with your practitioner if you feel intense pain or nausea.
How can I tell if it’s implantation bleeding?
Colour: for implantation bleeding the discharge or spotting will usually be pinkish or dark brown, whereas period blood tends to be bright, vibrant red. Duration: as implantation bleeding only happens while the egg is fixing itself to the uterus, it may last as little as a few hours or up to 1-2 days.
