How long after sex does implantation occur?

I am just curious how long after sex can implantation occur?  My husband and I had sex about a week ago and a few days ago I had some pink cm, I didn' t know if it was possibly implantation or maybe just from having sex and still having some left over blood from m/c or just getting ready to ovulate? I know this sounds stupid, but I didn't know who else to ask, THanks K

Implantation happens about 6-9 days after ovulation. So if you ovulated when you had sex or right after, it could very well be implantation bleeding....

Many times frequent urination, blood in your urine, trouble initiating a stream of urine and pain urinating are a sign of a UTI.  Sometimes UTIs can be caused by frequent intercourse.  One of the ways to prevent UTIs from frequent intercourse is to urinate soon after to help flush out any bacteria that may have entered your urethra during sexual activities.

Because we don't know from your post when you had intercourse it is hard to say if this blood may be implantation bleeding.

The only way to know if you have a UTI, are pregnant or if something else is going on is to visit your GYN or Primary care provider.

Good Luck!

I'm 37 I have been trying to conceive unsuccessfully. I had light spotting during ovulation then it stopped completely. Then 6 days later light spotting again could this finally be implantation bleeding.
Also I was so nauseated the night before the light spotting.
I take prenatal vitamins everyday and clonazepam for anxiety when should I stop now or when I have a positive pregnancy test. I cannot sleep without medicine.
Please help me.

hi there, I have also been trying for baby #2 and have very irregular periods so they put me on hormone therapy just to get my periods regular. After that I still was spotting so it was hard to tell if it was implantation or just spotting, doc told me wait and take a pregnancy test. as for anxiety meds, I am on anti anx meds and while I was preg with my son they changed my meds to a c level[ranked a-d for safety durring pregnancy and nursing]med. though I am not sure what the med you are taking is ranked. Best thing will be to see your doc, ask lots of questions, and express your concerns to them. Hope I helped a little..best wishes
