Implantation Cramps on Implantation Day

  • Implantation bleeding and cramping

Implantation is the attachment of the fertilized egg, the embryo to the uterine lining. Implantation usually happens about a week after fertilization and ovulation.

You may be pregnant if you feel cramps about a week after ovulation. But cramps in and by themselves around the day of implantation don't always mean that you are pregnant.

The fertilized egg is very tiny, and you are unlikely to even see it with your naked eye. Because it's so small and has little impact on the uterus, implantation is usually not associated with cramps.

It's possible that your cramps were associated with implantation but the cramps are not a sufficient enough sign that you are pregnant, and you may have to wait for typical pregnancy symptoms or a positive pregnancy test to confirm the pregnancy.
