Watch the temperature of your body. In the early stages of pregnancy it is, as a rule, increases. But there are exceptions, so be certain you should pay attention to basal temperature (in the rectum), which in pregnant women increased always! In order to obtain reliable results, measure basal temperature in the morning, before getting out of bed (before the measurement takes at least 6 hours to be in a horizontal position). The thermometer introduced into the rectum approximately 5 cm depth and not removed within 10 minutes. After conception basal temperature does not drop below 37 degrees.
Pay attention to your physical sensations. For example, the perception of food. You may receive an aversion to any particular product. Morning sickness is often one of the first signs of pregnancy (nausea, vomiting). But few people know that morning sickness is fatigue, and frequent headaches.
Don't ignore the vaginal discharge. After the occurrence of conception, their number increases dramatically. They usually do not cause itching and odor. Sometimes that goes a little mucus and bloody nature, which a woman is menstruating. This discharge can be brownish and yellowish.
"Listen" to the sensations in the uterus area, as periodic tingling in the uterus are an excellent indicator of conception. This usually lasts for the first two weeks after pregnancy.
Pay attention to the condition of your Breasts. Once conception happens, there are painful sensations in the breast (so they prepare for feeding). A few weeks after conception there has been a swelling of the Breasts and darkening of the areola (areola).
Hand over the analysis on HCG - the hormone that appears in a woman's body in early pregnancy. Although you can just buy a regular pregnancy test - it gives the result based on the content of HCG in the urine.
According to statistics, healthy couples who enter into sexual contact 2-3 times a week without the use of contraception for conception usually takes from six months to a year. So don't hit the alarm if pregnancy does not occur immediately. To seek the assistance of specialists is recommended in those cases, if conception does not occur for two years or more.
In fact, phenomena such as profuse vaginal discharge, nausea, headaches, vomiting, heaviness in the abdomen, does not always indicate the onset of pregnancy. Can be quite other causes of similar manifestations. Therefore, in the case of serious ailments, immediately consult doctor.
Advice 2 : How to find out whether there has been conception
Women planning pregnancy, want to know whether there has been conception. There are several ways to determine whether fertilization happens in this menstrual cycle.
Hand over the analysis on hgch. Human chorionic gonadotropin – hormone secreted in the female body to maintain the pregnancy. Before conception its level in the blood of healthy women should not exceed 5 IU/ml. HCG begins to grow rapidly, and its concentration increases in 2 times every 2-3 days during the first trimester of pregnancy. The results of the blood test can determine whether there has been conception through 7 days after ovulation, i.e., about a week before the alleged delay of the next menstruation. In the first 2 weeks after fertilization the HCG level is 25 to 156 IU/ml.
Buy in a drugstore pregnancy test and do your research at home. After conception levels of HCG increases not only in blood but also in urine. The maximum concentration of hormone observed in the morning, so the test is best done after a night's sleep. Read the instructions carefully and conduct research in accordance with it. Some pregnancy tests show accurate results starting from the 4th day before the beginning of the delay. If your period comes 2-3 days, the probability to obtain the correct result of the study is about 98%.
1-2 weeks after the delay to determine whether you are pregnant, can a gynecologist during the inspection. About 2 weeks after fertilization the embryo attaches to the uterus it begins to grow and an experienced doctor will be able to confirm pregnancy as early as 3-4 weeks after the onset of pregnancy.
The most informative results will show an ultrasound. This study will show the presence of the embryo in the uterine cavity for a period of 2-3 weeks after conception. Due to the ultrasound can rule out ectopic pregnancy, to determine how many children are waiting for a future mother, and by 5-6 weeks you can hear the baby's heartbeat. Some gynecologists do not recommend to carry out this study in the early stages of pregnancy, unless there are special indications, in order not to increase the risk of miscarriage. The first planned ultrasonic examination of the woman should do 10-12 week, i.e. after 8-10 weeks after conception.
There are subjective signs of pregnancy: weakness, drowsiness, chest discomfort, mild dragging pain in the abdomen. However, most of these symptoms can occur in women before menstruation, therefore, on such grounds it is difficult to accurately determine whether there has been conception.
Advice 3 : As the sperm reach the egg
All know, resulting in the conception of a child, but few interested in the internal flow of fertility process. What happens to sperm after being hit in the vagina? How they manage to get to the destination and the speed with which they do it? The answers to these questions it is desirable to know.
The path to the egg
After ejaculation of men in women's vagina goes from 300 to 500 million sperm, most of which dies in the very beginning. To the fallopian tube, which contains a ready for fertilization egg rush only the most motile and active sperm, which need to overcome the cervix to pass between the endometrial folds, to find the tube with the egg and overtake more nimble relatives. In General, this "race with obstacles" is from two to five hours.
Most often the sacrament of fertilization occurs in the middle third of the women's fallopian tubes.
Reaching the egg, the sperm in an amount of from 400 to 500 trying to get inside her with the help of enzymes located in the head of each sperm and destroying the egg shell. When one single sperm manages to penetrate the egg, its shell instantly turns into inaccessible fortress for the remainder of the outside of the seed. The winner loses the flagellum, helped him to move through the reproductive system, and merges the core with the little baby egg chromosomes of the nucleus, resulting in the first cell of the embryo – the zygote.
Changes in the body
After penetration of the sperm into the egg the whole body is "notified" about the incident fertilization and begins to rebuild to save the beginning of the pregnancy. It begins to occur other chemical reactions, uterus redistributes its innervation, and immunity drops to a certain level that the body did not reject the fetus, mistaking him for an alien growth.
Due to the unique genetic code, the zygote determines the sex and character of the unborn child, and his ear shape and eye color.
The fertilized egg descends into the uterus until the seventh day after fertilization and begins to look for a place to attach. Finding a suitable site, the embryo is implanted in the uterine endometrium and growing rapidly, forming new blood vessels, which later will form the placenta and will "feed" the unborn child until the birth. The body of the new man is formed from the tiny knot, umbilical cord and amniotic bubble of superficial cells. After forming all elements of the fetus, its development depends solely on the physical and psychological state of the mother during pregnancy.
