Symptoms of pregnancy
What are the symptoms of pregnancy e when they appear? Your period is late and you can’t think of anything else. Are you or are you not pregnant? The best way to dispel any doubts is to take a pregnancy test, of course. But how to recognize the first symptoms of a pregnancy and how to distinguish them from PMS symptoms? The medical term used to indicate all the symptoms of an ongoing pregnancy is pregnancy symptoms.
When pregnancy symptoms begin
As you read on the Pregnancy Symptoms website, i symptoms of pregnancy in the first week vary from woman to woman and depending on the pregnancy, the first is the missed menstruation. Let’s see the other signs that may arise in the early days or during the first month of pregnancy. But beware, you can be pregnant without having any of these symptoms, which may appear later.
Before the coming period and immediately after conception, you can perceive the signals of an ongoing pregnancy, caused by the hormones that are activated following the fertilization of the egg. For example the Beta hCG hormone, which determines the positivity of the pregnancy test, is responsible for some transformations in the woman’s body. Here are the main ones pregnancy symptoms before your period:
Breast and abdomen tension
Pain in the lower abdomen
Excessive tiredness and exhaustion
Nausea and different sensitivity to smells and tastes
Tendency to urinate more often
Increased basal temperature
Now let’s see in detail all the symptoms, starting with the most reliable one, the only really safe one, namely the lack of menstruation.
Amenorrhea (absence of menstruation) is the most important and significant sign of an early pregnancy, especially if your cycle has always been regular and you have had intercourse during the fertile period.
About 6-7% of all pregnant women may experience blood loss and pain similar to the normal menstrual cycle, but which are instead caused by ‘nesting of the embryo in the uterusor. However, it is rare for blood losses to take on a menstrual-like rhythmic character, that is, they occur for several months in a row.
Often this symptom is confused with the classic premenstrual turgor. Breast turgor can also occur many days before the day of missed menstruation. And then with the progress of the first few weeks your breasts may swell, and will become more and more turgid and tense due to the action of progesterone, at times it can give you a little pain and irritability in the nipples. The veins of the breasts are more evident. The areola may become darker and small reliefs may appear on its surface, the so-called Montgomery tubercles, or glands which in feeding time they will secrete a lubricant and disinfectant substance
It is a very common symptom and can lead to suspicion of an early pregnancy, especially if fatigue comes unexpectedly and upsets your daily habits (you can’t see the end of a movie, you fall asleep after dinner) and especially if you are generally not. particularly prone.
It’s a symptom that doesn’t mean much if it comes on its own. The abdominal tension, the heaviness, the swelling, will be due to the very first hormonal changes that develop with the implant.
If you have always been regular, you may notice some constipation even before the expected date of your period.
