Women can experience different types of discomforts and pains during pregnancy and they need not be common all pregnant women either. Some of the common ones include feeling tired and nausea and vomiting, especially over the initial stages of Pregnancy.
HOW IS PREGNANCY DIAGNOSED?
Pregnancy can be detected using one or more various pregnancy tests, which detect hormones generated by the newly formed placenta, serving as biomarkers of pregnancy. Blood and urine tests can detect pregnancy 12 days after implantation. Blood pregnancy tests are more sensitive than urine tests (giving fewer false negatives). Home pregnancy tests are urine tests, and normally detect a pregnancy 12 to 15 days after fertilization. A quantitative blood test can determine approximately the date the embryo was conceived because HCG doubles every 36 to 48 hours. A single test of progesterone levels can also help determine how likely a fetus will survive in those with a threatened miscarriage. Ultrasound scan of the abdomen is performed at regular intervals / trimesters to check the health of the fetus.
HOW IS PREGNANCY TREATED?
Each of the pains or discomforts can be handled according to the advice of the doctor. Any medication or other supplements have to be consumed only with the advice of the doctor since the unborn child’s health and well being needs to be kept in view. Serious conditions have to be dealt with on priority.
