Are you wondering if you might be experiencing implantation symptoms? If you're trying to conceive, it's completely normal to be on the lookout for any signs that your body is preparing for pregnancy.
In this blog, we'll discuss everything you need to know about implantation symptoms and signs, including what to look out for, how to differentiate them from other common pregnancy signs, and when to take a pregnancy test.
Implantation is the term that's used to describe the moment when a fertilized egg attaches to the uterine lining.
It usually happens 6 to 10 days after conception and marks the first stage of pregnancy.
Once implantation occurs, a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin or hCG is produced, and this is what pregnancy tests detect to deliver a positive result.
Hormone changes around the time of implantation can cause a range of symptoms that you should be aware of if you're wanting to conceive, although not everyone will experience implantation symptoms.
Implantation symptoms are usually temporary and will either go away on their own or can be treated with over-the-counter pain relief, although some symptoms (such as nausea) may continue into the pregnancy.
You should speak to your doctor or a pharmacist before taking any pain relief medication during pregnancy.
Implantation symptoms usually only last a few days, and gradually lead to more obvious pregnancy symptoms.
If you find that your implantation symptoms don't improve or worsen, you should your GP for reassurance.
Wondering "Am I pregnant, or do I have PMS?", well, the truth is, it can be tricky to tell whether the symptoms you're experiencing are signs of PMS or implantation, especially when it comes to bleeding. Generally, implantation bleeding is lighter and doesn't last as long as a period, but the following signs can be symptoms of both implantation and menstruation:
But if you feel like you need to pee more or you've noticed that your nipples look darker, it's a good idea to take a pregnancy test to know for sure because these are symptoms that're commonly associated with early pregnancy.
Yes, lots of people get pregnant without experiencing implantation bleeding or symptoms. Every pregnancy is different, and a lack of symptoms doesn't necessarily mean you're not pregnant.
