After sperm meets egg, how long until implantation?

By Andrea Rodrigo.
Last Update: 02/23/2018

Implantation occurs approximately within 3-7 days after fertilization, as the fertilized egg cell has to travel from the point where it was fertilized to the point where it implants. It depends on how high the point where they meet in the Fallopian tube is. For instance, if they meet high in the tube, it will take about 7 days.
