Will I Know When Implantation Occurs?

When a couple is actively trying to conceive during your fertile days, that waiting period after ovulation can be very nerve-racking. Oftentimes there is several weeks of waiting as implantation occurs and the pregnancy begins to progress, allowing a fetus to begin to grow and develop.

Of course within that small window of time as a fertilized egg is implanted within the uterine lining there is the question of whether or not a woman can know when this occurs. The simple answer is yes, there are some signs that can occur to help a woman know when implantation has occurred, but not every woman will show signs or be aware of those signs that do occur.

What are the signs of implantation?

Typically the process of implantation takes about 7 to 10 days as the fertilized egg attached itself to the uterine lining and begins to grow. However, this process can vary from woman to woman, sometimes happening within just a few short days of ovulation while other times it can take upwards of 14 days.

The signs of implantation can be confusing to interpret as they can oftentimes be mistaken for the beginning of the natural ovulation cycle beginning again. However, if a woman does show signs for implantation they might be along these lines.

Light spotting

About 7 to 10 days after ovulation a woman who has had a successful implantation of an egg might have light spotting for a brief period. This can be so inconsequential as to go nearly unnoticed by some women, but if you pay attention during this time frame it could be a sign of implantation.

A spike in basal body temperature

Once implantation has occurred roughly a week or so after ovulation there could be a spike or thermal shirt in the body temperature as it adapts to the process of beginning to nourish a growing fetus. The spike in temperature may only be just a few 10th’s of a degree, so a basal thermometer is needed to detect it.

A dip in thermal temperature

Some women instead of experiencing a spike in temperature experience a dip of their basal body temperature. Every woman’s body is different and some women’s bodies acclimatize to a pregnancy by lowering the temperature for just a short period to accommodate the stresses of implantation. A basal thermometer is needed to detect the change in temperature as the dip could be less than one degree.
