  • I think it varies for all women...I've read 6-12 day after ovulation. I'm 5 1/2 wks prego and I never had implantation bleeding at all.

  • If you had sex AFTER ovulation than chances are you are NOT pregnant because the egg dies within 12 hours usually and the cervix closes. If you had sex before you ovulated than you could be pregnant. Implantation bleeding can happen any time after 5 days past ovulation and can continue through out the first trimester.
