Presumptive, probable and undeniable signs of pregnancy
What are these supposed signs of pregnancy, what could they be? To know about the pregnancy that has occurred is reliable, it is possible already 10-14 days after ovulation. However, many women want to know about this even earlier, and at the same time, preferably without visiting a doctor. This is especially true for women who plan a child more than one month. After all, it is impossible to go to the doctor or ultrasound every month to find out about the presence or absence of an interesting situation.
Precisely, we can say that a woman is in a position if a fetal egg is found in her uterus. And to establish itself in the fact that pregnancy develops - seeing in this fetal egg an embryo that has a palpitation.
Another way is to take a blood test for hCG. But his elevated level sometimes speaks not about pregnancy, but about oncological disease. And still, the level of hCG remains positive for some time after abortion, spontaneously interrupted pregnancy or childbirth.
The enlarged uterus on the result of a gynecological examination is also quite reliable evidence of an interesting situation.
In contrast to the authentic signs of pregnancy, the presumptive signs of the doctors are not taken into account. The doctor probably will not pay any attention to their availability. However, they often accompany pregnancy.
1. Enlarged and painful mammary glands. Usually such a phenomenon is observed in menstrual cycles, when there was ovulation. Gently the breast becomes several hours before menstruation. If the menstrual period begins and the chest remains tense, then this is a presumptive sign of pregnancy. By the way, he is associated with an elevated level of progesterone - a hormone that remains high after conception and should decrease before the onset of menstruation.
2. Increased basal temperature. The most reliable measure is in the rectum. In the second half of the menstrual cycle, in the event that ovulation occurred, it stays just above 37 degrees. And before menstruation begins to decline. If the pregnancy has come, the temperature does not fall. And if falls after conception, then some doctors consider this a possible symptom of the threat of abortion or termination of its development.
3. Manifestations of toxicosis, cold and diarrhea. Sometimes these presumptive, probable and undeniable signs of pregnancy appear first. Toxicosis, although in a fairly mild form, women can experience almost immediately after implanting a fertilized egg into the uterine wall. This is expressed in a slight nausea, rejection of certain foods and odors. Diarrhea provokes a change in intestinal motility. Well, a cold can be a consequence of immunity disorders.
4. Increased urination. A very common presumptive sign of an interesting situation. Associated with the action of the hormone is progesterone. Although the uterus is still small, on examination the doctor is unlikely to notice its increased size, however, women begin to visit the toilet more often, especially at night. This can continue throughout the entire period of bearing the child.
Separately, it should be said about such a presumptive sign of pregnancy in the early stages, like a delay in menstruation. It happens to all future mothers. Menstruation is absent during the entire period of gestation. However, some women still have blood from the vagina, but this is not a cyclical discharge, but associated with a threat of abortion or an already started miscarriage. The reason is urgent to see a doctor if you plan to save the child.
Presumptive or doubtful signs of pregnancy is just an excuse to be examined for an interesting situation. At least - make a test. It is possible to say more precisely whether there is pregnancy and whether it develops in the uterus about a week after the onset of menstruation.
