Self-diagnosis

It's very easy to figure out whether a woman is pregnant or not, to those who know her body well.

Pregnant or not? Before the months are still a few days, and already unbearable to know whether the long-awaited conception has come? Or vice versa - to dispel your doubts about an unplanned pregnancy. So, you can diagnose before the delay.

Self-diagnosis

It's very easy to figure out whether a woman is pregnant or not, to those who know her body well. The first thing you need to know: signs of pregnancy will manifest in a week, and even later after an unprotected sexual intercourse. Note that conception is possible only during the period of ovulation, that is, 12-14 days from the start of the cycle (last menstruation).

  1. Measurement of BT (basal temperature). If during the period of ovulation there was a sexual act, the egg was impregnated, then the temperature 37 and above will last from the day of ovulation to the expected onset of menstruation. Perhaps at this level, it will stay for some time.
  2. Pregnancy tests. Do they still have to be done early? No. HGH hormone (chorionic gonadotropin) begins to develop already on 7-8 days after conception. And on the 12th day, its concentration is such that the test can fully react with two strips. That is, do not necessarily wait for the delay to take advantage of the test. Of course, it's better if your test is more sensitive, and you do it in the morning. After all, the second strip may appear weakly, and then there will be a need to buy another test. But know: a weak second stripe means "yes" rather than "no". You should pay attention to the expiration date of the test, carefully read the instructions, and when purchasing the test, store it at a specified temperature in advance.
  3. A blood test for hCG. Such diagnostics are more reliable and reliable than the test. Such an analysis should be given on an empty stomach in the morning. If you are not pregnant, then hCG in the blood will not be found, and further testing does not make sense.

Body Signs

Most women know how to determine pregnancy by listening to their body.

This is evidenced by such subjective symptoms:

  1. Nausea and vomiting, that is toxicosis. But in the first weeks this happens rarely. So if you are sickened a few days after unprotected intercourse, do not make hasty conclusions. Perhaps this is a simple poisoning. Early toxicosis manifests itself on 4-5 weeks after fertilization of the egg. This means that first there will be a delay, and then a toxicosis.
  2. Swelling and pain in the mammary glands. This is familiar to many pregnant women. The chest seems to burst, and in rare cases even comes out colostrum - a sticky liquid of a yellowish color. As a rule, this is not related to the future amount of milk.
  3. Pain in the lower abdomen. They occur before the menstrual period, but this sign, if absent, can be a sign of pregnancy.
  4. Change the libido toward an increase or decrease. This is for every woman individually. Passionate women become passive after conception, and the phlegmatic on the contrary - surprise husbands with activity.
  5. Enhance vaginal discharge. Perhaps, their number will increase. This phenomenon is observed in the first weeks of embryo life. Normally, such secretions are colorless and free of blood.
  6. Frequent urination. Every woman knows her norm and the frequency of going to the toilet. Relaxation of the sphincter of the bladder can lead to increased frequency of urination.

Mood Changes

Everyone knows that future moms are irritable, whiny, quick-tempered. And it begins just after conception. Sharp changes in moods and taste habits can also indicate an interesting situation. And they say that the pregnant dream about fish. This, rather, a sign than a fact. But, nevertheless, our grandmothers talked about her.

Of all the symptoms of pregnancy before the delay, the most reliable is the blood test for chorionic gonadotropin.
