How does implantation work?

Can someone please explain this to me? My BBT chart says that I ovulated and MAY have had an implantation dip/spotting at 7DPO. I don't get that at all. I mean, I guess it's common knowledge, but isn't implantation when the sperm enters the egg? I could be way off, but that's what I have always thought. And if that's the case, how does the sperm live so long after ovulation? I've heard that sperm can only live 5 days or so after BD, so why would it be any different after ovulation? Sorry, still a newbie to this, but trying to get it all figured out. Thanks in advance for any help!

Re: How does implantation work?

Implantation is when the fertilized egg burrows into your uterine lining. An implantation dip is a good thing -- but sometimes the software doesn't accurately predict these things... hopefully yours is the real thing!!

Best wishes!

Thanks for clearing that up for me, goldenmom! I don't really trust the implantation dip - I've heard that it doesn't always mean anything. The only good sign was that I also had some light pink spotting when I wiped once that evening, too, so who knows. I don't have any PG symptoms, so I doubt it's our month, but I guess I'll find out in a week or two.
