The question that does not want to be silent about 8 out of 10 women who attend or visit TF: Am I pregnant? Can I be pregnant even after menstruating?
Everything can start from the moment when menstruation comes in different quantity, volume, color and aspect than usual. Some women may be surprised by the sudden change and then, pregnancy is the first hypothesis that comes to mind. It is not always the explanation, but it is certainly a possibility for women of childbearing age. But how to know if the period came different because of a pregnancy? Am I pregnant while menstruating? Where did it come from? Where does she go? Questions that Changing Diapers will answer now!
The most direct way to find out if you are pregnant is with a pregnancy test. The test depends on the hCG hormone, which only appears in the body after nesting. Some tests are more sensitive than others, such as the FamiVita test, which has the highest sensitivity on the market. That way it is possible to detect the pregnancy and clear the doubt faster. You can find our pregnancy test in our online store .
In fact, a decrease or even change in the color of menstrual flow may be due to hormonal causes. The naughty hormones, always them! The change can happen due to an increase in the production of one of them (estrogen and progesterone). Another cause may be a very thin endometrium (less than 5mm), which can make a woman menstruate much less than she should normally menstruate. The low flow can give false hope to those who want a baby badly, and also to terrify those who are on the verge of a nervous breakdown for fear of being pregnant. Dislocations aside, menstruation can play real tricks. So, relying solely on it to determine the possibility of a pregnancy can be in fact wrong.
The fact is: pregnant DO NOT menstruate , but you may experience bleeding. The problem is that women rarely know how to differentiate between bleeding and abnormal menstruation . Basically the woman who menstruates no longer has the endometrium to house the embryo in its early stages. Without it, there is no possibility of a pregnancy happening. Intense flows are a sign that the entire endometrium has loosened, especially with clots. Those pieces present in menstrual blood are often parts of the endometrial tissue. Do not be alarmed if one day you have a smaller amount or do not have these clots. It may just be a sign that the endometrium has grown less in this cycle. As we already mentioned, if you have any doubts, take a pregnancy test to confirm.
When Does Blood Indicate Pregnancy?
Usually the bleeding of pregnancy that many women confuse a lot with menstruation, is the bleeding of nidation . It is not uncommon to see questions on the website about low flow of strange color that nesting bleeds are possible . Many women try to get confused between implantation bleeding and menstruation. However, implantation bleeding is not abundant, nor does it appear to be a light flow. Nesting bleeding DOES NOT FLOW. He has only a subtle presence when the woman cleans herself after going to the bathroom or a slight blot on her panties. This “bleeding” is minimal and slightly apparent. The vast majority of women do not have nidation bleeding, then, do not be encouraged if there was a flow of wetting the absorbent. You probably have a less intense period than usual.
The flow can also raise doubts due to its distinctive color and texture. In addition to the blood blocks called clots, there is bleeding with coagulation changes, the famous coffee grounds. This is a cause for partial concern. It may mean that your body is processing less progesterone than it should, and then the endometrium falls apart differently. In fact, the problem already occurs in the formation of the endometrium, accumulating dark blood due to hormonal changes. Dark menstruation is synonymous with low progesterone, while clots of bright red to dark red, and with intense flow signify an exaggerated increase in estrogen .
These problems can happen due to hormonal imbalances that are simple to correct. FamiVita ‘s OviKit Ovulation offers everything the tentant needs. Yam vitamins and capsules prepare the body and balance hormones, helping to prevent these hormonal fluctuations. In it you also find ovulation and pregnancy tests, so you don’t have to be guessing when each process happens. This way you can have your positive faster – and with less doubt! You can purchase your FamiKit Ovulation in our online store.
So reinforcing: bleeding that indicates pregnancy is that of nidation. However, this bleeding SHOULD NOT FLOW , fill with absorbent or soak the panties. It must be subtle to the point of appearing and disappearing in a few hours and a maximum of 3 days. Bleeds with a flow even though lighter, but with different characteristics, the vast majority are really menstruation. If the duration of your menstrual cycle (bleeding days) is shorter than usual, but there is still a flow, it is menstruation. Only consider the bleeding suspicious if it does, and within a maximum of 3 days menstruation does not come normally.
Make no mistake if you have minor bleeding but with flow, they can play tricks as well as other pregnancy symptoms. Pregnant with bleeding is at risk of pregnancy! Bleeding pregnancies are a sign that something is wrong and not every pregnant woman bleeds. Fortunately, the vast majority do not even experience menstruation symptoms on the way.
If you have menstruated less and think you are pregnant, take a test to clear up your doubts. But do it without much hope and with awareness, because in the vast majority this minor bleeding with small flow is menstruation in a cycle in which the endometrium has not grown properly. It is not impossible that you are pregnant, but the chances are very small when you have a considerable menstrual flow.
My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
