process which lasts about one week, beginning when the blastocyst attaches to the wall of the uterus of the woman and ending when the embryo is fully embedded in the wall of the uterus, or exceptionally in an extrauterine place.
The process whereby an embryo embeds in the uterine lining in order to obtain nutrition and oxygen. Sometimes an embryo will implant in areas other than the uterus, such as in a fallopian tube. This is known as an ectopic pregnancy.
Implantation of a pre-embryo happens the moment it attaches itself to the uterine wall, resulting in a pregnancy. Implantation may occur between five to ten days after ovulation or embryo transfer (in IVF). close window
A term used in embryology to describe the penetration and embedding of the blastocyst in the lining of the uterine wall. Sometimes called nidation, implantation usually occurs during the seventh or eighth day after conception. Different kinds of implantation include eccentric implantation, interstitial implantation and superficial implantation.
The embedding of the embryo into tissue so it can establish contact with the mother's blood supple for nourishment. Implantation usually occurs in the lining of the uterus; however, in an ectopic pregnancy it may occur elsewhere in the body.
The anchoring of the developing embryo in the uterine wall about a week after conception which soon makes it detectable, due to hormonal secretions, by testing of the mother's blood or urine. Suggested by some as a time before which the embryo's destruction may be morally permissible because it is undetectable and by others as a time after which it's destruction may be permitted because it is then fully dependent upon the mother. Both approaches are typical of the ethically dysfunctional and morally retarded thought processes of mature Abortionites.
when the pre-embryo imbeds in the uterine wall, starting the hormonal changes allowing the uterus to nourish the pre-embryo. When this implantation occurs, the zygote will now be nourished by the uterine blood supply and the cells will begin to differentiate. Thus implantation signals the beginning of the embryo stage and the pregnancy begins.
(Embryo) -- The embedding of the embryo into tissue so it can establish contact with the mother's blood supply for nourishment. Implantation usually occurs in the lining of the uterus 5-10 days after ovulation.
Implantation signals the beginning of a pregnancy. The process normally occurs when the fertilized egg attaches to the wall of the uterus. Sometimes, however, the fertilized egg can implant in other locations that are inappropriate for sustaining the developing embryo. (See ectopic pregnancy.)
Attachment of the blastocyst to the endometrium [uterine lining] and subsequent embedding in the endometrium. Implantation begins at about 5-7 days after fertilization and may be completed as early as 8-9 days after fertilization.
Short for ion implantation. The use of a particle accelerator to "shoot impurities" into the pure silicon wafer. An alternative to diffusion, implantation is more controllable but costs more since wafers are processed individually.
