Implantation pain is a common phenomenon, which occurs at the time when women become pregnant. It can manifest itself through different symptoms, such as vaginal spotting and aches, lower back pains and overall body weakness. Read on to find out which the other symptoms are and whether you should start worrying about them or not.
What Is Understood Under the Term ‘Implantation’?
Implantation represents fertilized egg’s attachment to the uterus lining. After this the ovum (called also blastocyst) completes its way through one of the fallopian tubes. Implantation occurs around a week after ovulation, within 6-12 days since fertilization.
During the ovulation time, egg gets released from the ovary. Egg’s fertilization with the help of the spermatozoon usually takes place in 12-24 hours. Firstly it is located in fallopian tube’s distal part. The combination of egg-sperm is known as “zygote”. It begins its trip from the Fallopian tube. Logically, its final destination is the uterus. During this time, the fertilized egg multiplies itself into 2, 4 and 8 cells (in such a specific order). The ovum at this stage is known as the blastocyst. It enters the uterine cavity on the 5-6th day after fertilization. It takes 1-2 days for the blastocyst to adhere to the uterus’s lining. It usually happens in 6-9 days after fertilization.
