When Does Implantation Bleeding Occur?

    Among the most important questions asked by women is "How soon can I detect my pregnancy?" A pregnancy can be detected mainly by a missed period and through different ways such as typical pregnancy symptoms, and early positive pregnancy tests. Another way to detect your pregnancy is by doing our "Am I pregnant?" pregnancy quiz test, and the online pregnancy test (OPT). Pregnancy symptoms are usually directly related to increased levels of hCG hormones. Implantation bleeding or spotting are among the top signs of early pregnancy.

    Implantation bleeding can be seen about a day or so after implantation, which happens about 9 days after ovulation/fertilization (range: 6-12 days).

    Fertilization happens in the fallopian tube, and the fertilized egg then travels for about 5-6 days down the fallopian tube towards the uterus.
    Implantation happens when the fertilized egg arrives in the uterus and attaches to the uterine lining. Implantation occurs on average 9 days after ovulation and fertilization, it can happen as early as 6 days after ovulation until 12 days after ovulation

    The timing of implantation spotting is within a day or so after implantation, about 9-10 days after ovulation and fertilization. Implantation happens between 6 and 12 days after ovulation, so about 9-10 days  after ovulation would be the right time for implantation bleeding and spotting.
    A blood pregnancy test can be positive about three to four days after implantation and a urine pregnancy test will be positive about five to six days after implantation.
