Emobileclinic Trending Topic: Implantation
Implantation signs are the first thing every woman looks for when trying to conceive. Signs of implantation are vast and can include everything from bleeding to cramps and discharge. The following are typical signs that implantation has occurred;
Bleeding is one of the most accurate signs of pregnancy, but it is only seen in 1 out of 3 women. In fact, many women won’t even realize that the spotting is implantation bleeding and not the start of their period. This bleeding is normally not:
Bright red like period blood.
As consistent as period blood.
Formed in clots.
Light pink or even a brownish color may be present when implantation blood is seen. This blood will not have the same amount of flow as a period in most cases. Some women do experience heavy implantation bleeding, and the easiest way to differentiate between implantation and period is by its consistency.
Spotting is most common with implantation.
These cramps are often more mild than period cramps and should not be so bad that you wince over in pain. Mild in nature, these cramps will only last a short period of time with many women experiencing them for about 5 minutes. If you feel any severe pain, it is a smart choice to see a doctor.
3. Breast tenderness
Breast tenderness is a symptom that’s common from the fast change in hormones. Hormones will increase leading to swelling, soreness and tenderness. If the breasts are tender, a pregnancy test can be used to determine the likelihood of being pregnant.
4. Increased basal temperature
A high basal body temperature (BBT) is used as a way to determine pregnancy. The temperature must be charted during the course of trying to get pregnant to tell if a sharp rise has been seen. Due to progesterone increasing in the body, the BBT will rise and remain high until the progesterone levels decrease. BBT may rise to 37.4-37.5C during pregnancy.
5. Cervical mucus changes
The cervical mucus will change in consistency, color and flow when a woman is pregnant. The mucus is consistently white, heavier and extremely slippery. Mucus increases due to an increased blood flow to the vagina.
6. Missed period
7. Frequent micturition.
8. Food craving and aversion.
