Implantation is the body’s natural way of welcoming you to pregnancy. Implantation is a significant event but can be easily overlooked. So, on your conceiving journey, it’s crucial that you understand what it really is and how long does implantation last for.
Implantation is a natural process that occurs after your egg fertilizes and travels down your fallopian tube to burrow deep into your uterine lining. During implantation, you may feel something like a one-sided pinprick or a slightly crampy sensation on one side of your womb.
Implantation symptoms can be perplexing because they can be vague and it is very difficult to predict how long they will last. When you understand how long implantation lasts, it will be easier for you to notice changes in your body and better understand your symptoms.
How Long Does It Take To Feel The Signs of Implantation?
There are numerous signs and symptoms of implantation. However, most women are unsure of how long it takes to feel the first signs after ovulation. According to medical experts, it could be anywhere from six to ten days before you notice these symptoms.
With my experience of seven pregnancies, it happened a lot earlier for me. I have also known a lot of other women who get positive test results just eight days past their ovulation. As you need a decent number of hormones in your urine to test positive, it means that implantation takes place a lot earlier after ovulation.
How Long Does Implantation Last For?
The signs of implantation can range from a few minutes of prickly cramping on one side to 48 hours of one-sided cramping with feelings of adrenaline rushes and fluttery-tingling sensations in your womb space.
Symptoms You Might Confuse With Implantation
Even after implantation, your body will undergo numerous changes, and it is very easy to confuse these other symptoms with those of implantation.
During the early stages of pregnancy, as your uterus grows, you may experience intermittent cramping that can be misinterpreted as a sign of implantation. Furthermore, in many cases, the implantation spotting lasts longer than a day or two, and you may experience heavy bleeding, which can again be mistaken for your period.
Because there are so many different symptoms that appear and disappear all the time during early pregnancy, it’s no surprise that we become confused and have difficulty understanding what’s going on.
Consider the influx of these new hormones that are entering your body.
It’s normal to feel up and down due to all of these different hormone levels fluctuating in your body. One day you may notice that your breasts have become more tender, the next day you feel like something is wrong in your abdomen, and the next day you are more forgetful or emotional.
Understand and Manage Your Implantation Symptoms
I experienced all of the above-mentioned implantation symptoms long before any pregnancy tests revealed a positive result.
I had seven pregnancies myself, and when I had implantation spotting with one of them, it lasted about two weeks. When the symptoms lasted longer than my normal periods, I took a pregnancy test, and the result always came back positive.
I understand that this is a lot to take in at once, and it can be very confusing and overwhelming at times.
