How long do implantation pains last?

How long can they go on for and when do they occur? I've had a tugging type dull ache yesterday and today, but AF is not due until 29 January. I ovulated on 16th January and we DTD on 9, 11, 14, 16 , 18 and 19 January.

I have a regular 28day cycle so I can't believe AF is coming a week early - dare I hope it's a good sign?!

Oh my gosh, I am exáctly in your shoes, as in, literally,dates and everything too I think.

Check out my thread on this forum called help! Where I've just posted pretty much what you've posted.

Fingers crossed for us both, hope it's that and nothing sinister.

Same for me, I'm 7 DPO 30 day cycle due 30th.

Have had mild cramps since Thursday. It's very confusing!

I'm pretty sure I ov'd Jan 12. On Jan 18 I had some serious period-like cramping. Since then I've had milder cramping off and on.

I did a bit of googling (hopeful and all that!) and found:

"Implantation cramps are light pulling or pricking pains, localized in the lower abdomen and occurring usually about a week before the expected date of the period onset. These spasms are associated with some melting of the uterine mucous membrane in the place of implantation. Because of this process the fertilized egg safely attaches to the uterine wall. Implantation cramps appear just once or occasionally, but more often they cease completely in a couple of days."


"Some women also experience abdominal cramping in the first few weeks of pregnancy, similar to menstrual cramps. Only a small percentage of women experience implantation bleeding or cramping, however, so you can miss these symptoms and still be pregnant."

So it's possibly a good sign!

focus that prickling sounds hopeful for you smile

With dd I remember having cramps which I assumed were AF pains so didn't actually poas until I was three days late. This time TTC I'm overthinking everything!

Pricking is exactly what they're like for me!

More cramping today, CD27 tomorrow. Getting closer to a good test time!

Having panic attacks as I get pregnant really easily. Had spotting today which is a week before my due date. I have a non hormone coil and we used a condom last weekend that was out of date so I took the morning after pill just to be on the safe side. Hoping it's the start of my period as I have Dd aged 3.5 and DS who will be 2 next month so I don't fancy having 3 under the age of 5.
