Everything You Should Know About And Around Implantation

Implantation occurs when a fertilised egg implants in the uterus. The most common symptoms are light bleeding and cramping. The timing of implantation varies, but usually occurs 6-10 days after the egg is fertilised by the sperm. Implantation symptoms are similar to menstrual symptoms, so pregnancy cannot be confirmed without a positive pregnancy test.

However, testing too early may result in negative results.

This is because it can take several days for your body to produce enough of the pregnancy hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) to get a positive test result. Let's call

Post-Implantation Symptoms

Light bleeding or spotting may occur in her first week or two after conception. Bleeding or spotting can occur when a fertilised egg punctures the endometrium.In most cases, this type of bleeding is normal and does not indicate a pregnancy problem. 

According to the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, implantation bleeding is usually pink and lighter than you would normally see during normal periods. Because implantation bleeding usually occurs around the same time as a normal period, some people mistake it for a light period. You may not realise you are pregnant until you notice other pregnancy symptoms or take a pregnancy test.

Mild uterine spasms can be another symptom of implantation. Symptoms of seizures can result from hormonal changes in early pregnancy or during implantation of a fertilised egg.

Implantation cramps are different for each person. There should be no cramps. Implantation pain can feel like a stabbing sensation, a dull ache, or mild menstrual cramps. Other symptoms of implantation or early pregnancy include delayed periods, tiredness, and breast pain. or tenderness, vomiting and nausea, mood swings, increased urination, sudden appetite, and headache.

Implantation timeline 

As per a 2015 article, researchers explain that the window for implantation is between days 20 and 24 of a menstrual cycle. And it is about 6–10 days after ovulation. When you receive a positive pregnancy test result, your gynaecologist or nurse midwife will calculate a timeline for the beginning of your pregnancy. They will date your pregnancy from the first day of your last period.

As per to the NHS (national health service of the United Kingdom), an approximate implantation timeline follows these steps:

  • Day 1: It is the first day of your last period.
  • Day 14: It is the time when you ovulate and one of your ovaries releases an egg.
  • Day 15: After the release from the ovary, an egg survives and sperm can fertilise the egg within this timeline. If you have had physical intimacy with your male partner in the days leading up to and around ovulation without using any contraception, a sperm may fertilise your egg. This creates an embryo.
  • Days 20–24: Implantation occurs, which is when the fertilised egg attaches to the lining of the uterus.

At this point, you are pregnant. However, it may still be too early to take a pregnancy test to have a positive result.

When to Take a Pregnancy Test

Although many home pregnancy tests claim to detect pregnancy before your period is due, many health professionals recommend taking the test about a week after your period is due. Recommended. According to the Office of Women's Health, home pregnancy tests are nearly 99% accurate when done correctly. Home pregnancy tests measure the pregnancy hormone hCG in urine. Home pregnancy tests become more accurate over time because the body produces more hCG as the pregnancy progresses. To confirm pregnancy, see your OB/GYN and have her hCG blood tested. Get accurate results faster than home testing.

Not everyone experiences signs and symptoms of implantation, and symptoms vary from person to person. Talk to your gynaecologist or midwife if you have any concerns or questions about pregnancy symptoms. They can describe what symptoms to expect during the early stages of pregnancy and each trimester.

Do you feel tired during implantation? 

hCG production continues to increase during the first 8-11 weeks of pregnancy. One of the symptoms of hCG production is fatigue. It usually takes several weeks for hCG to reach fatigue-inducing levels, but some women start feeling fatigue as early as a week after conception.

Can you feel the symptoms of fertilisation before implantation?

Before implantation, the fertilised egg cell travels along the fallopian tube to the uterus.

Symptoms, such as light bleeding and cramping, begin only when the fertilised egg implants.

How long do you feel the implantation?

Implantation symptoms may last 1-3 days. However, everyone's experience is different. Some people do not experience any symptoms of implantation.
