How to determine pregnancy?
To determine pregnancy before a delay, an HCG test (the level of the hormone chorionic gonadotropin) can be done. The aforementioned hormone is produced by the placenta. An increased level of this hormone is a reliable sign of a successful conception. An increased amount of this hormone may also indicate the presence of various diseases, including cancer.
The rooting of the egg in the wall of the uterus occurs at least a week after the last intercourse. With the help of clinical and laboratory tests, for example, donating blood for analysis from a vein, it is possible to determine pregnancy already on the eighth day.
If you are not sure about the reliability of the test, then you should turn to the next method - measuring basal temperature. This method is used in many cases: when they want to get pregnant, when they don’t want conception to occur, etc.
Basal temperature is measured more often in the rectum (this method is more accurate and reliable), but the oral cavity and vagina are not excluded. The doctor should analyze the graph of values, since these indicators are individual and some errors are allowed. To find out about your interesting position, start measuring your temperature at least 10 days after the intended conception. Remember that at the end of the menstrual cycle, the temperature will be below 37 ° C, if it has not dropped, then you may be pregnant.
To correctly measure basal temperature, you need to remember a few simple rules:
you need to measure the temperature in the morning (at 6: 00-7: 00 hours), right after sleep;
- it is forbidden to consume alcoholic beverages on the eve of the measurement;
- you need to use only one thermometer to avoid possible errors;
- experts do not advise having sex a day before basal temperature measurement;
- incorrect temperature readings can be affected by drugs and diseases, which are accompanied by a high temperature.
Also equally effective is a pregnancy test, which can be used two days before the expected period. If there is a delay, then the test can already show the result with 100% probability.
Remember that it must be done in the morning, as a large amount of the hormone chorionic gonadotropin has accumulated in the urine during the night, which increases the reliability of the test.
Nowadays, there are 3 types of tests: electronic, strips and tablet. Each woman can choose any of these, depending on the financial situation and the recommendation of the gynecologist.
Please read the instructions carefully before testing. If the test showed a fuzzy second strip, it would not hurt to use another test, only of a different type or from another manufacturer.
A factor such as toxicosis can also indicate the state of pregnancy. It manifests itself in every woman, only to a different degree.
Another symptom that signals your interesting position is enlargement of the mammary glands and darkening around the nipples.
The third "hint" is an increase in body temperature, and without signs of any disease. At high temperatures, avoid overheating, ventilate the room and it will stabilize.
Symptoms such as "pulling the lower abdomen" and frequent urge to urinate may also indicate that conception has taken place. If going to the toilet is accompanied by "prickly" pains, then this confirms the signs of a disease such as cystitis, you should immediately consult a gynecologist. An increase in vaginal discharge also indicates an interesting position.
Our dear readers, listen to your body, and you will immediately find all these aforementioned signs without a doctor and a test. Even symptoms such as sleeplessness and frequent mood swings can tell you an interesting situation.
