As a rule, already the first days of a delay in the men­stru­al cycle lead to the fact that a woman begins to think about her pos­si­ble “inter­est­ing posi­tion”. The main first signs of preg­nan­cy include sud­den drowsi­ness, tear­ful­ness, and nau­sea in the morn­ing. Among oth­er things, strange gas­tro­nom­ic addic­tions or a sharp increase in appetite can be added to these signs. As the body begins to work dif­fer­ent­ly, a woman may notice an increased urge to uri­nate and fre­quent night­ly “goes” to the toi­let.

How­ev­er, all these signs are not nec­es­sar­i­ly com­pan­ions of the onset of preg­nan­cy. After all, a lot here depends on the hor­mon­al back­ground, and its vio­la­tions are not uncom­mon in non-preg­nant women. In order to diag­nose your posi­tion more accu­rate­ly, you should use more reli­able meth­ods. So what do gyne­col­o­gists rec­om­mend?

A preg­nan­cy test is per­haps the most afford­able and reli­able way. The degree of its reli­a­bil­i­ty is more than 90%, and there are no dif­fi­cul­ties in using it. Such a test works on the prin­ci­ple of deter­min­ing the lev­el of chori­on­ic gonadotropin in a wom­an’s body — a spe­cial hor­mone pro­duced in a wom­an’s body from the first days of preg­nan­cy. In order for the test to “rec­og­nize” it, a spe­cial plate is impreg­nat­ed with the appro­pri­ate solu­tion. Remem­ber that the high­est con­cen­tra­tion of the hor­mone in the urine is in the morn­ing. Of course, to con­firm the result, it does not hurt to repeat the test.

Many women pre­fer to mea­sure their basal body tem­per­a­ture. The reli­a­bil­i­ty of such a test is also very high. Studyis to imme­di­ate­ly after wak­ing up mea­sure the tem­per­a­ture at a depth of 2 cm in the rec­tum. Preg­nan­cy is con­sid­ered to have occurred if the mea­sured tem­per­a­ture exceeds 37 degrees. Keep in mind that the tem­per­a­ture must cer­tain­ly be mea­sured with­out get­ting out of bed.

How­ev­er, per­haps the most reli­able way is to con­duct lab­o­ra­to­ry blood tests. Blood is tak­en from a vein. It deter­mines the lev­el of the hor­mone tro­phoblas­tic beta-glob­u­lin. Accord­ing to the deter­mined lev­el, you can even indi­cate the expect­ed ges­ta­tion­al age. By the way, this is the only way to find out about preg­nan­cy imme­di­ate­ly after con­cep­tion, that is, with­out wait­ing for a men­stru­al delay.

If you need a method that is 100% reli­able, then you should use ultra­sound. The only caveat is that you can use it only 21 days after con­cep­tion. By the way, it is ultra­sound that helps not only to deter­mine the onset of preg­nan­cy, but also diag­nose any dis­ease. There are two ways to con­duct such a diag­no­sis — vagi­nal­ly or through the abdom­i­nal ante­ri­or wall. There are also lim­i­ta­tions here — it is believed that before 9 weeks of preg­nan­cy, a vagi­nal exam­i­na­tion may be unsafe for the fetus.

The vari­ety of ways allows each woman to choose the one that is con­ve­nient for her­self, tak­ing into account the sit­u­a­tion and state of health. More­over, none of these meth­ods does not require any com­pli­cat­ed steps. How­ev­er, even if, accord­ing to the results of the test, you learned about the long-await­ed preg­nan­cy, you should not ignore the vis­it to the attend­ing physi­cian to con­firm the results and reg­is­ter. All oth­er nuances relat­ing to your con­di­tion will be super­vised by your lead­ing gyne­col­o­gist. The task of a woman here is obvi­ous — you need to try to get the max­i­mum plea­sure from a new state for you.
