Hi Guys,

Any idea how long after ovulation implantaion takes place on average I mean...

Finace and I made the most fantastic love last night, and I know I am ovualting today... If the egg only lasts 24 hours, and the sperm can take up to 12 hours to reach the egg... Lets asume I started to ovulate this morning, and the sperm took 8 hours. Then at around 4:30 this morning implantaion might have occured. So how long would it take for implantaion bleeding to start (if at all) and how long does it last?

Sorry I know it sounds very jumbbled...


PS. Paris I agree with Samantha, take the panties off and let everything hang out... If not better for Seth at least more comfortable for YOU!

About 10 days. Fertilisation occurs in a few hours. Implantation occurs 10 days later.
