When does implantation of the fertilized egg occur?

By Sara Salgado B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 02/21/2022

Embryos implant on their sixth or seventh day of development, that is, 6-7 days after fertilization. Therefore, if the embryos are transferred on day 3, they will have to continue developing for a few more days in the uterus until they can implant.

On the other hand, if they are transferred on day 5, they will have already reached the blastocyst stage necessary for implantation to take place and will be able to begin to establish contact with the endometrium.
