How to distinguish pregnancy from PMS
PMS or pregnancy - how to distinguish between the early signs of an interesting position from the familiar to many women premenstrual syndrome (occurs in 5-7 days or less before the onset of menstruation)?The question of the differences are concerned two categories of women: who passionately want to become pregnant and, on the other hand, fear "fly."
Indeed, PMS symptoms sometimes very similar to the first few weeks after conception.But doctors do not take into account for the diagnosis of these subjective feelings of women.These include pain in the lower abdomen, the sensitivity of the mammary glands and nipples, frequent changes of mood, changes in taste preferences, fatigue and so on. But PMS in women is not at all present.Its symptoms can not be done if a woman has been anovulatory cycle, or if she is taking any medications that suppress ovulation.
If the chest pain that is: PMS or pregnancy in a woman?If the symptoms of mastitis woman known not by hearsay,it is unlikely to feel something special, even if already in position.But those who do not know what breast tenderness - will pay attention to it.Also, many expectant mothers talk about this difference of pregnancy for PMS: after conception are very sensitive nipples it hurt even to touch, they vary in color and are visually more.But if you go through breast ultrasound in pregnancy and beyond, there are no significant differences physician will notice.By breastfeeding glands begin to prepare for later - after 20 weeks of gestation.
Yet it is believed that the difference between PMS symptoms of pregnancy in terms of its beginning, some women can experience in the child itself even earlier, almost immediately after implantation of the egg in the uterine wall.At this point, strong pain may occur, and there will be bleeding from the vagina in small numbers.
If you're wondering what you - the signs of PMS or pregnancy, try to measure the basal temperature (in the rectum).In case interesting situation temperature is above 37 degrees for a period before the onset of menstruation.Measurement should be carried out in the morning, in bed, immediately after waking up.
Doctors also advise not to look for ways how to distinguish pregnancy from PMS, not encouraging in advance and do not make any conclusions solely on the basis of their state of health.The earliest reliable way to determine pregnancy - is a blood test for hCG.It is informative in 10-12 days after ovulation, and it means - even before menstruation.To take this analysis - you can not go the direction of a physician, and a visit to this end, any paid clinical laboratory.
