Within a few days after fertilization of the egg by the sperm and the onset of pregnancy, the woman’s body can “signal” this.
Why is it very important to be able to recognize these signals? What are reliable and likely signs of pregnancy before a delay? Let's figure it out together.
Early pregnancy is the formation of vital organs in the fetus. The degree of “laying” of healthy organs of the baby depends on the state of health of the mother during this period. For example, if during the week when a child has a heart, the woman “caught” herpes, an acute respiratory infection, then the baby’s chances of heart disease increase.
Women who do not plan to become mothers should not miss the deadlines too. After all, an abortion will take place with less complications if done in the early stages.
So, on what grounds can we determine that the pregnancy has come?
Basal temperature. If it stays at 37 degrees and a little higher, then this may mean the onset of pregnancy. But in this matter there are a number of subjective factors affecting the accuracy of the thermometer readings. For example, an elevated temperature may be due to sexual intercourse that occurred a couple of hours before the temperature was measured. Even the trip to the toilet 2 hours before the measurement affects the readings. The exact measurement result can be obtained in the morning, lying in bed, when the woman had been calm for 6-7 hours before.
Pregnancy test. Positive, with the indication of two strips, it will be in 10-14 days after conception, and not a day after it. It is worth considering that manufacturers of tests and doctors recommend them to do after the start of the delay. Then the result will be more accurate. "Errors" of tests in the early stages are explained by the fact that the concentration of the hormone hCG, which affects the test result, is still too low. If there is a great desire to try, then you need to buy inkjet tests.
Blood test for hCG (chorionic gonadotropin). It should be emphasized that a positive result of the analysis also occurs in cases of diseases, for example, of the kidneys.
Such hormonal signs of pregnancy before the delay of menstruation today are considered reliable.
Probable (relative) signs
Pain in the mammary glands. Some women a few days after conception begin to feel how their mammary glands are thickened. They become very painful, colostrum begins to stand out from the nipples. Others even state a slight increase in breast size. But sometimes these signs can be symptoms of breast disease. That is, if an interesting situation was not confirmed, and the pain remained, it is necessary to seek advice from a mammologist.
Toxicosis. Usually in the very early stages of pregnancy, nausea is mild. Sometimes women confuse the first signs of pregnancy with poisoning. Toxicosis include a marked increase in appetite.
Lower abdominal pain. Such symptoms are observed in the first days after conception. But they can be a sign of either miscarriage, or the approach of menstruation. During pregnancy, such pains appear rarely and irregularly.
Implant bleeding. It is difficult to call bleeding. A woman can detect a few drops of blood in underwear during the introduction of the egg into the wall of the uterus. But this is a rather rare sign, and it happens only in some women. By the way, this phenomenon is often confused with intermenstrual bleeding. But, as a rule, in this case it ends with a few drops. Traditional, profuse bleeding does not begin.
These are the first signs of pregnancy before the delay. We remind you that these are only separate signals about a possible interesting situation, as well as dreams about fish.
