Consider the most popular method of how to define pregnancy without the test. Basal body temperature - a lower threshold body temperature reached during rest (resting, sleeping). It is measured using a thermometer in several ways: orally, rectally and vaginally (in the rectum). The latter method is the most common. Basal body temperature is an indicator of the level of hormones in the body. It responds to changes throughout the menstrual cycle, ovulation, menstruation and pregnancy.

The normal value of basal body temperature during pregnancy is considered 37, 1-37, 3 ° C. Sometimes it rises to 38 ° C, which often is normal and depends on the properties of the organism. Start measuring basal temperature must be no earlier than 1-2 days before menstruation. Thus, if the indicators are not reduced basal temperature for 18 days, we can conclude that the pregnancy.

In order to correctly measure the basal temperature, it is important to know that during oral measuring mercury thermometer to keep 5 minutes, and vaginal and rectal 3 minutes. The measurement takes place every morning at the same time, immediately after waking up, getting out of bed. Having a chart of temperature, do not rush to conclusions.

One of the most common grounds on which we can determine pregnancy without tests, is to delay menstruation. Menstruation is a sure sign that the female body is ready to conceive. It is an interesting mechanism of menstruation. In a certain period of the menstrual cycle (approximately 14 days) ovulation occurs, resulting in a mature egg is released from the ovary to the uterus and sent. In any part of the way the egg can be fertilized. In this case, the fertilized egg, attached to the wall of the uterus, the fetus is developing.

If fertilization does not occur, after a certain period (10-14 days) will occur as a result of cyclical bleeding rejection endometrial layer. Accordingly, if the bleeding is not regular, it may indicate that a woman is pregnant. In the event of pregnancy a woman's body releases certain hormones, which blocks the ovaries and makes it impossible to stand out a new egg.

Nevertheless, the absence of menstruation is not always indicate pregnancy. The delay may be indicative of ovulatory abnormalities or amenorrhea caused, in turn, inflammatory processes in the female body, and infectious diseases somatornymi, stress, fatigue, hormonal imbalances. Hormonal drugs, the presence of follicular cysts, ovarian cyst or corpus luteum (LYUF syndrome) can also cause a delay in menstruation.

There are cases when, in spite of the pregnancy, menses cease. In fact, such spotting at this time can not be called menstruation. They are the cause of various diseases, disorders of hormonal functions, detachment of the ovum, ectopic or multiple pregnancy.

Thus, to determine the delay menstruation pregnancy can be provided that the menstrual cycle is regular, and the woman's body is completely healthy. In any case, if you conclude that the delay is due to your pregnancy, you should consult a doctor, blood test and undergo an ultrasound examination to rule out ectopic pregnancy and determine the exact date. This is best done 2-3 weeks after the delay. By this time, the uterus will increase so much that the findings were more accurate.

Causes toxicity are still unknown. There are many theories on the subject. Today recognized as the theory of abuse of neural regulation of visceral brain. The predominance of the process of excitation of the braking process leads to the activation of all centers of the brain, including the vomiting.

Another cause of the toxicity - hormone. A large concentration of human chorionic gonadotropin in the female body during early pregnancy often leads to hormonal disruption and the emergence of toxicity. But do not forget that nausea and vomiting may indicate poisoning of differential pressure and other health problems.

Painful breasts

Mammary glands are very sensitive to any changes in hormonal levels of the female organism. Increasing the female hormone estrogen in the blood during menstruation, menopause, and, of course, during pregnancy. So, blurred aching pain in the chest, no doubt, are a symptom of fertilization and are particularly pronounced if the first pregnancy. From the outset, women's breasts begin to prepare for breastfeeding.

At this time, it receives a large amount of blood, gradually expanded milk ducts, veins appear more clearly, a feeling of heaviness. Pigmented and nipples are very sensitive.

Thus, the pain in the uterus and ovaries are possible at an early stage of pregnancy, if it occurred on a background of inflammation. If pregnancy occurs all diseases are aggravated sexual organs.
