Implantation cramping/bleeding?

  • Hello! I have never been to this board, but I have a question and felt you all would be the most knowledgeable on the subject. I am definitely not TTC so I hope that coming here does not offend anyone

    Anyhow, this may be a stupid question, but I was curious. How long after fertilization (or possibly even intercourse) can you experience implantation bleeding? Also, is cramping part of it? Thank you in advance!

    Implantation takes place anywhere from 5-12 days after ovulation, with the average around 8dpo. Some women do experience a bit of spotting and minor cramping. I hope you are one of those lucky few!

    Usually it comes pretty late, 11-13 dpo, and most people just assume it's an early & light period then realize later what was really happening. Implantation itself usually takes place at 4 or 5 dpo.
