When Does It Occur and What Signs You Need to Watch For?

Implantation during a pregnancy is vitally important. Implantation occurs in the beginning stages of pregnancy where the embryo adheres to the walls of the uterus. This is where everything begins when you are trying to get pregnant and begin a family. If you believe you are having issues with getting pregnant then it is always great to contact your doctor for more help.

Here is some useful information to consider and look at when you are wondering when implantation occurs and attempting to conceive.

Signs of Implantation

When implantation occurs your body can give you signs but sometimes a person can be symptomless. Implantation signs can be cramps, likes ones you get before your period, rise or dip in basal body temperature, usually after your body ovulates your body basal temperature will increase which can indicate pregnancy. Implantation bleeding or spotting can also occur during implantation. When implantation occurs some women may experience an implantation bleeding or spotting, some think this is their period but it is actually the implantation occurring during the 7th to 10th day of ovulation. Most likely you will not notice when implantation occurs and the best way to tell is to take a pregnancy test if you are wondering.

When Does Implantation Occur?

To understand when implantation occurs we need to talk about our periods. A woman must be ovulating for implantation to occur, so if a woman has a 28-day period then she will be ovulating on the 14th day of her period. During ovulation, if the egg is fertilized then it will remain in the fallopian tube for around three days before it reaches the uterus. Once at the uterus, the embryo will implant itself onto the wall of the uterus, this is when the implantation occurs. Between the 6th and 10th day after ovulation occurs, or the 20th and 24th day of your period is when you can expect implantation occur.  These dates are important because it can help you track your ovulation cycle and determine when you can and should attempt to get pregnant. Body Basal temperature is also a crucial part to tell if implantation occurred. Normally your body’s basal temperature is lower when you’re not pregnant. When you become pregnant your body’s basal temperature will rise and stay risen each morning it is taken. Taking your body’s basal temperature is an important step to see if implantation occurred.

What Do You Do if you Think Implantation Occurred?

If you believe that implantation occurred, then the safest bet is to take a pregnancy test to see if you are pregnant. To get the best results of your pregnancy test wait two weeks until after you think your implantation occurred, or after you missed your period. If you are experiencing the symptoms above or missed your period, then there is a good chance you could get pregnant.

How Can I Plan for Implantation to Occur?

First and foremost, just relax. Implantation occurs naturally and it is not something you should overly concern yourself with. You can try to plan your implantation and the best way is to try an implantation calculator. You can find these calculators on the internet by Googling “implantation calculator” and follow the directions. Most calculators ask about your last cycle and you need to put in a couple of numbers, so try to be as accurate as possible.
