When bleeding during implantation happen? – ANSWER from experts

Women health is pretty complicated especially during pregnancy. Any reddish vaginal discharge during pregnancy could be very stressful and women should know more about normal pregnancy development.

When does implantation bleeding happen?

First of all, normal regular periods can happen only after 14 days after your ovulation. Any unusual bleeding which happened before that period, could be implantation bleeding.

Bleeding during implantation could happen ONLY if you had fertilization. The egg becomes fertilized with a sperm within 12 hours after ovulation – it usually happen in the outer portion of the Fallopian tube. It then travels down the Fallopian tube, increasing its size along the way.

Bleeding during implantation can happen at the time the fertilized egg implants in the uterus – the attachment of the fertilized egg to the uterine lining. So timing for implantation bleeding is on average between 6 to 12 days past ovulation (in most cases on average about 9 days after your ovulation).

If you know your ovulation day – easy to calculate the possible day of fertilization, possible day of implantation bleeding or possible day of your normal regular period.


Just remember that bleeding during implantation is just a vaginal discharge which usually contains a small amount of pinkish or brownish blood. Only about a third of pregnant women experience implantation bleeding. You could be pregnant even without implantation bleeding.

Just check your pregnancy test and/or your basal temperature – easy to confirm and/or exclude the pregnancy. Please pay special attention to pregnancy symptoms and to any unusual feelings also.
