Am I really pregnant? Yes, this is a confusion most women come across after a missed period!

Shall I paint pregnancy dilemma in a picture for you?

A woman has skipped her period and is now two weeks overdue; the couple was physically intimate only three times since the last period and that too far from the days of her ovulation. She takes a pregnancy test once and it is negative; she takes another one a week later, and it comes back positive! What can be more maddening?

Until you go and get that confirming scan or blood test, you may neither feel ecstatic nor plan ahead. Phew! If only there were some ways on how to tell if your pregnant without a test!

Causes of Confusion in Conception:

Most of this confusion is caused by delayed ovulation, which happens when the woman ovulates very late in the cycle. Another factor that causes confusion regarding pregnancy is irregular period. If you have regular periods, you can easily map your ovulation days, hence making sure of the exact dates your ‘fertile period’ falls on. Also hormonal imbalance can cause problems like PCOD (polycystic ovary syndrome) and thyroid diseases; all these may make conception dubious.

Factors That Delay Ovulation:

A woman’s menstrual cycle is between 28-32 days; sometimes the duration is shorter or longer. Ovulation is actually calculated from the first day of the last menstrual period (LMP) or by calculating 12-16 days from the next period. Most women ovulate between day 11 and day 21 of their menstrual cycle. It is very important to keep track of your ovulation cycle. If you conceive, the doctor will definitely ask you about the duration of your last menstrual cycle because the expected due date is calculated on the basis of the last menstrual period (LMP).

Sometimes, the ovulation doesn’t happen in the right time. This is the main cause behind infertility. There are many factors that disrupt the normal ovulation cycle. These are:

a. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS):

This is a common cause of female infertility. The reproductive hormones estrogen and progesterone are out of balance, this triggers ovarian cyst.There are changes in the pituitary glands, hypothalamus and the ovaries that cause the delay in ovulation.Other than delaying ovulation it also causes abnormal growth of hair in the face and neck, insulin resistance and acne.

b. Hypothalamic Dysfunction:

The pituitary gland secretes two hormones – the follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and Luteinizing Hormone (LH) that is responsible for ovulation every month. Physical and emotional stress, obesity or low body weight can disrupt the hormone flow and pattern. This affects both ovulation and menstrual cycle. This is the main cause behind irregular menstrual cycles.

c. Premature Ovarian Insufficiency:

This disorder happens due to an autoimmune response, when the body attacks the ovarian tissues by mistake. This naturally leads to loss of eggs. Genetic and environmental factors can also cause ovarian insufficiency. Also with age the amount of estrogen decreases and thus fewer eggs are formed in the ovary.

d. Over Secretion of Prolactin:

The pituitary gland can cause excess production of prolactin. This condition is called hyperprolactinemia. The over secretion of prolactin disrupts estrogen production and this eventually cause infertility.This problem occurs when the pituitary gland doesn’t function properly.Sometimes, medicines also cause excess of prolactin and cause infertility.

Signs of Pregnancy / How to Confirm Pregnancy without Test?

If you were trying to become pregnant, you will naturally want to know if you were successful in the attempt. You don’t need to buy those expensive pregnancy test kits over and over again, and fret about the results. If you have conceived successfully, your body will definitely show some signs, you just need to listen closely to your body to observe the changes.

If any of the above mentioned causes of delayed ovulation make a mere ‘missed period’ a feeble sign of pregnancy to you, you can try looking for these other, softer signs of pregnancy. Here is how to tell if your pregnant without a test, if you happen to notice these signs.

1. Missed Period:

If your ‘otherwise regular period’ is delayed by more than ten days, it is time to consult a doctor, as it might be good news!

However, missing menstrual cycle is not an accurate signal of pregnancy. Sometimes, medications like contraceptives and eating disorders like anorexia or bulimia can affect the menstrual cycle. So missed period is sometimes a false alarm, you have to ask your doctor the reason behind missed periods.

It takes time for the Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Hormone to rise to a certain level. If you rush with your pregnancy tests, sometimes the results show negative. This means there is no rise in HCG levels. If there is a rise in HCG levels the test kit will show positive results. If you think you are not having regular periods, confirm with your doctor first. Since, if you are detected pregnant, the prenatal care has to start without delay.

    Can pregnancy be prevented with 1-2 months

    • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

      Hi Vidya, whether an unplanned pregnancy or an unhealthy pregnancy its best to be firm and to terminate the pregnancy at the earliest. Early termination of pregnancy is considered when a pregnancy is less than 10 weeks counted from the first day of your last menstrual cycle. The first and most correct thing to do to avoid pregnancy early is to go and see your doctor. Your doctor will do a thorough check up and suggest when it is appropriate for you to have an abortion. Since the pregnancy is at an early stage, there are chances that your doctor will prescribe you medicines through which you can safely terminate your pregnancy.

    @ Preeti –

    Spotting is normal during first trimester since the fertilized egg tries to implant itself in the lining of the uterus. The bleeding may last from a few hours to a few days which is nothing much to worry about. You better go to a well reputed gynecologist for an early pregnancy assessment unit (EPAU).

  • rebecca_sonu

    @ Ashley –

    You may get a negative test result if your body doesn’t produce
    enough HCG. Body produces HCG only after a fertilized egg implants itself in
    the uterus. This can happen during the very early stages in pregnancy. You
    might have undergone the test too early. But if you still show these pregnancy
    symptoms, try doing the tests after a few days or get checked with a gynecologist.
    Finally, I want to advice you not to go for unprotected sex too often as it is
    harmful for your health.

    • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

      Hi Summer, there can be lot of reasons for hot flashes and dizziness such as dehydration, sleep deprivation, heart rhythm disorders, panic attack, low blood pressure, motion sickness etc. As u have already taken the pregnancy test and that has come has negative, then wait for another one or two weeks and take a home pregnancy test. If your symptoms reoccur then i would advise you to consult a gynecologist.

      Dear Yati, as you are closer to your menses a little pain may occur and this pain can be in the form of backache or your lower abdomenal part. You can take a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, like ibuprofen and naproxen to reduce pain. Applying hot and cold compress will also provide relief. It is advisable to consult a gynecologist if the pain and symptoms persists for a longer period of time.

    Hi Katt, for some women, conceiving can be as easy as tossing out their contraception, whether they’re working on their first baby or their fourth. For others, reaching the goal of fertilization becomes a nightly chore. However few of the ways to speed up the process of getting pregnant are:
    1. Frequent Sex – If you’re not timing your cycles or you have irregular periods, you can cover your bases by having sex every other day.
    2. Figure out when you ovulate – Women with very regular 28-day cycles can just count 14 days from the first day of their period to determine their ovulation date. If your cycles aren’t regular, an ovulation kit can help you pinpoint your most fertile time.
    3. Step up sex before ovulation – As soon as you pick up a hormonal surge, have sex that day, plus the next two days. Another reason to have sex before you ovulate, as opposed to the day it happens is that an egg survives for only 12 to 24 hours after ovulation, so if you begin to ovulate in the morning and wait until nighttime to have sex, the egg may lose its viability by the time the sperm gets to it.
    4. Give time – Barring fertility problems and other conditions or habits that can interfere with conception, half of all couples get pregnant within six months and 85 percent do so within a year. So its important to enjoy the process rather than looking it as a chore. Hope you find these tips to be useful !!

    I have an iud but I think I might be pregnant. My two tests said no but I’m lactating my son is 10 months old haven’t breastfed in 5 months

    • Niharika

      Dear Kala, sometimes lactation happens when you are not pregnant or breastfeeding. This milky white discharge from the breasts is known as galactorrhea, and it is usually a sign of an underlying problem, such as a disorder of the pituitary glands or a side effect of some medications. The good news is that galactorrhea usually goes away on its own, especially when the underlying medical condition is treated. Certain medications, herbs, hypothyroidism etc can also cause lactation. Also take a pregnancy test again after two weeks or so and consult a gynecologist to diagnose your condition.

  • Niharika

    Dear Browneyes, ovulation usually happens about 14 days after the first day of your last period. An egg lives for about 12-24 hours after it’s released. For you to get pregnant, a sperm must fertilise the egg within this time. Pregnancy tests check for the presence of the pregnancy hormone, human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) in your urine. After you conceive (when the sperm fertilises the egg), your body begins to produce HCG. Around two weeks after you conceive, there’s enough HCG for most pregnancy tests to detect it. Hence you need to wait for two weeks and then take a test.

    Dear Yolanda, pregnancy is caused by semen (ejaculate or cum) or pre-cum getting inside the vagina. There are certain times of the month when it’s more likely that you’ll get pregnant from having sex. You can look for the symptoms like missed periods, nausea, bloating etc and if you suffer from any of the above mentioned symptoms then you can take a home pregnancy test or visit a gynecologist.

    Dear Cheyanna, as you are using a Nexplanon, it gives an option of upto 3 years of continous pregnancy prevention option. So you need to check with your doctor about the period of the implant. In some cases if your doctor cannot feel the Nexplanon implant then you need to use other birth control methods until your health care provider confirms that the implant is in place. You can also take a home pregnancy test to further clear your doubts about your pregnancy.

    • Niharika

      Dear Jenna, even if the sperms come in the contact with the area around vagina….there can be a possibility of you getting pregnant. Look out for the pregnancy symptoms and also if you miss your periods by two or three weeks then you can take a home pregnancy test to confirm your doubts.

  • Niharika

    Dear Vannya, inside a woman’s body, sperm can live for up to five days depending on the conditions. If you have unprotected sex even a few days before your partner ovulates, there is a chance of achieving a pregnancy.

  • Niharika

    Hi Olivia, It is possible to have a period after you become pregnant. Most women who do report that it is not quite like a normal period – perhaps lighter or shorter. This is usually due to implantation bleeding as the placenta attaches. You can repeat the pregnancy test to be sure but positive usually means just that unless there is a miscarriage. This is also a possibility if the period was heavy. It is believed that a number of miscarriages occur before the women even realizes she is pregnant. Again, repeating the test would be the best thing to do.

  • Niharika

    Hi Carrie, if you have your IUD removed near the time that you are ovulating, you could be at risk for becoming pregnant if you have had recent intercourse before the IUD is removed. Sperm can live inside the vagina for up to 5 days. It is advisable that you wait for one or two weeks more and then take a home pregnancy test.

  • Niharika

    Hi, I know this may sound stupid but I really need help with this, I don’t understand. I am a young girl and I don’t know if I’m pregnant or not. I had sex for the first, and so far only time, almost 4 months ago. I had late period, nausea, bigger boobs, swollen ankles, head aches, food cravings, and I was almost always tired but couldn’t sleep. I was wondering if I were pregnant or not so I took a few online tests both said I may be pregnant. I haven’t taken a real test though… Am I pregnant?

    • Niharika

      Hi Briana, the best thing to do right now is to take a pregnancy test at home and also consult a gynecologist to understand your sudden symptoms. If you got your regular periods in the last four months then you may not be pregnant. However, do take the test and also consult with a gynecologist.

    Hi Suhani, It is unlikely that you will become pregnant after your period, but it isn’t impossible. It is the phase when you move into your fertility period. An average cycle lasts for 28 to 30 days, and the fertility period falls in between day 11 to day 21. Studies conclude that sperm can live in the reproductive tract for 2 to 5 days. If your bleeding time lasts for 5 to 7 days and you indulge in sex right after that, you might become pregnant. If your periods stop on day 6, you have sex on day 7 and ovulation occurs on day 11; there is a possibility that the sperm of day 6 is still residing in the fallopian tubes for fertilization. Your chances of getting pregnant after period increase day by day once your period stops. If you want to have a baby, this is a real good time to have sex. Also, indulging in sex for the following 14 days improves your chances of becoming an expecting mom.

    Hi Pankaj, an ipill should be taken as soon as possible after sex. You will have 72 hours to prevent an unplanned pregnancy after unprotected sex. Pregnancy is established only after the fertilized egg attaches itself to the womb. This process can take 2 to 4 days. You need to act within this time frame to avoid the risk of pregnancy. The girl should take i-pill as soon as possible and not later than 72 hours. The sooner you take i-pill, the more effective it is. i-pill is 95% effective within 24 hours of unprotected sex, 85% between 25-48 hours and 58% if taken between 49-72 hours. Blood clots in the urine may suggest periods too…so wait for the next periods..if it does happen then take a home pregnancy test.

  • Niharika

    Hi Sanya, it is very unlikely that you may get pregnant as you took an ipill after intercourse. Missed periods can also indicate issues like stress, major weight loss, excessive exercise, thyroid irregularity or PCOS. It is advisable that you take a home pregnancy test and also visit a gynecologist.

  • Niharika

    Dear Priya, it is crucial to discuss your situation with family before you take a step to terminate your pregnancy, as you will need the support and help of your family and husband to go through this phase. Also do consult your gynecologist before you take any pills. Taking pills with a prescription and guidance may put your life in risk.

  • Niharika

    Dear Leslie, missed periods need not necessarily mean that you are pregnant. Stress, nutritional deficiency or any other health issue can lead to delay in the periods. Also bilateral tubal ligation or tied tubes is 99.9% effective in preventing pregnancy. However, in a small percentage of cases, despite the tubes being severed, they can grow together again during the process of healing and a connection between the two cut ends of the fallopian tube can reform. This can allow an egg and sperm to meet and a pregnancy to develop. If a pregnancy does occur after a tubal ligation, it is more likely to be an ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy that implants in the fallopian tube instead of in the uterus). Take a home pregnancy test and if you are getting a positive urine pregnancy test at home, it is very important that you see your doctor to first confirm that you are in fact pregnant, and second, to make sure you don’t have an ectopic pregnancy.

  • Niharika

    Dear Izzy, symptoms like sleep pattern, food cravings alone cannot confirm pregnancy, they may serve as indications but there is no base for its accuracy.

      Hi Jennifer, less bleeding during periods may happen due to lack of nutrients like iron in the body, stress, hormonal imbalance etc. You can wait for a period of 28 – 30 days from the last day of your periods… if your next cycle is late or your periods does not occur then take a home pregnancy test or consult a gynaecologist.

    Hi Barb, usually a burning sensation when urinating; this is the most common sign of a bladder infection. Others such symptoms are frequent urge to urinate, passing only small amounts of urine at a time despite the urge to urinate, urine that is cloudy or bloody with a strong, foul odor and bladder spasm. If you are facing any of these then it is advisable for you to visit your doctor as soon as possible. And if you are not facing any other symptoms the take a home pregnancy test.

    Hi Praveen, sometimes women with PCO syndrome can get pregnant. Contraceptive pills can be taken up to 5 days after unprotected sex, to prevent pregnancy. Irregularly bleeding or bleeding twice in month is common for women with PCOS or in this case second bleeding or spotting can be implantation bleeding. So to be sure take a home pregnancy test or visit a gynecologist.
