Implantation bleeding is caused by a trophoblast; this is a tissue that develops from the egg, surrounding it completely, in the end. This way it enables it to grow and, once it invades the blood vessels, it will cause these implantation bleeding. The entire process consists in the fact that a fertilized egg is attached to a women’s uterine lining after the fertilized egg has completed its process in the fallopian tube. This process could take up to 9 days (after the ovulation begins). Another important thing to know about this spotting is the fact that they happen about 6 to 12 days after the ovulation process.
