How Does Pregnancy Happen? Step by Step from Ovulation to Implantation

Getting pregnant is a dream of many women, but do you know how pregnancy happens? We will see a step-by-step that explains exactly the whole process so that the beginners in this branch are aware of everything to get pregnant as soon as possible. Do you have doubts about how pregnancy happens? So don’t take your eyes off the screen.

Beginning of everything

The entire process for pregnancy to begin begins on the first day of the menstrual cycle . With the exit of the endometrium (layer inside the uterus that turns into menstruation ), another hormonal cycle starts to happen. As we already saw here in the post about menstrual cycle , the whole process is composed of hormones that complete each other.

A step by step of how to get pregnant starts here, in the hormones more precisely in FSH which is the follicle stimulating hormone . From there the eggs are induced to leave the deposit in the ovary and start to grow. Soon after, estrogen enters the scene , causing the endometrium to thicken again and help the ovarian follicle to grow even more. In the third hormonal phase, LH (Luteinizing hormone) enters the scene, which causes the follicle to mature and the egg is then released. The peak of LH occurs when the follicle reaches a good size to start to mature, normally this happens with 19 to 21mm . After the peak of LH the egg is released and yes, if the woman has intercourse during this period, she can become pregnant.

During this period it is possible to be detected through ovulation tests , which in addition to informing that it is close to happening, informs you when it is occurring accurately, making life easier for those who are trying to conceive. You can purchase your ovulation test here at our online store. 

How Fertilization Happens

Pregnancy can happen on fertile days which are 7 days with probable ovulation on the 4th day of the fertile period , but even if you have intercourse at the beginning of the fertile period, pregnancy can still happen, because the sperm can stay there quietly just waiting for the moment from ovulation to fertilize.

Below is a video on how fertilization is, the first phase of how pregnancy happens.

After the fertilization that takes place in the tubes, the zygote (name given to the fertilized egg) travels to the uterus, this process can take 7 to 15 days. Fertilization is done by a sperm in an egg, after the sperm enters, the egg layer changes and becomes impermeable and no one else enters or leaves !

From then on, the magic of life only becomes more and more complete, because the multiplication of cells happens very fast . From two initial cells, the egg and the sperm, others start to appear and multiply very fast is impressive! If two or more eggs are released and all are fertilized, then the chance of a twin pregnancy is great!

When Does Fact Pregnancy Happen?

After reaching the uterus, the zygote or baby can fixate on the endometrium, remember the blood that comes out during menstruation ? So, it serves as a basis for fixing the baby and then the pregnancy itself happens. From that point the hormone that detects the pregnancy starts to be produced and now the test can be positive! Opt for reliable and more sensitive pregnancy tests like the Famivita brand, which can detect pregnancy up to 5 days before menstrual delay. You can find the Famivita pregnancy test here in our store.

Consider yourself pregnant! From the start point to the end point of the positive, it can take about 30 days or more, women who menstruate irregularly may have a little more difficulty in perceiving when they will ovulate, but have cycles like other regulated women but you can find out how to detect the your ovulation here in this post.

When Symptoms Appear

After nesting the embryo divides into two parts, one will turn the baby over and the other part will be the placenta. Thereafter more and more HCG , the exclusive pregnancy hormone only tends to increase and certainly the symptoms started to appear .

The most common symptoms are absence of menstruation, nausea, breast pain and excessive sleep . The egg can stay alive about 24 hours after being released, a short life, right? The sperm can live up to 72 hours if the environment is favorable, so mucus is very important.

I will leave some post links for tempting people who can help and a lot for those who want to get pregnant.
