Day 12 after egg retrieval
Most people say that implantation occurs around 7-10 days after fertilization. I was just wondering if it could happen on day 12? If so, is it safe? I am referring to an IVF procedure. The egg was transfered back on day 3. Thanks:)

Dear For Ever Hopeful

This is certainly possible and in some cases delayed implantation has been described therefore I would remain optimistic until either a bleed or two negative pregnancy blood test are noted.
