Are you wondering what is Pregnancy? Pregnancy occurs when a sperm fertilises a mature egg. Fatigue, Morning sickness and delayed period are some of the indicative signs of pregnancy.
Within the female body, a mature egg is released from the ovary, which sets in motion the process of ovulation. By a mature egg, one means that the egg is ready to be fertilised. For this entire process to take place, not only ovulation but also a thickened uterus wall has to be there to support the fertilised egg. Fertilisation happens when a woman has a sexual intercourse and when the sperm fertilises with a fertile egg.
Women who do not get pregnant witness a lot of clots in their blood flow. These clots are precisely the thickened walls of the uterus that disposes itself off not being able to successfully find a fertilised egg.
The next pregnancy symptoms are fatigue and the urge to urinate frequently. The latter happens because the uterus tends to swell-up during that time. Apart from that, morning sickness and breast tenderness are the most common symptoms where one tends to feel bloated, uneasy, irritated, experience mood swings and develop extreme aversion/liking to certain food-items. Besides that, the breasts feel more tender than usual. This is precisely because the body secretes hormones and starts to prepare for producing milk.
This shedding of the clot is a contra-indication for pregnant women and should be taken as a sign of possible miscarriage. Below are some facts about what you must know about ovulation:
However, women should also understand that these symptoms might vary in intensity and duration from women to women as it depends on their physical endurance and body type. The most widely known and the most obvious symptom is missing your menstrual cycle. In this case, some women have cases of spotting as well. In all probabilities, a home pregnancy test is a way of confirming the pregnancy. These kits are easily available in drug stores.
