Early Signs Of Pregnancy Nipples
Nipples are one of the first places that you may start to see changes when you are pregnant. The areola (the dark area around the nipple) may get darker and the nipples may get bigger and more sensitive.
Early Pregnancy Sore Throat
A sore throat is a common symptom of the common cold, which is a viral infection of the upper respiratory tract. It can also be a symptom of other respiratory infections, such as bronchitis, pneumonia, and laryngitis. It can also be a symptom of a non-respiratory infection, such as strep throat, a form of streptococcal infection. Sore throats can also be a symptom of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), a condition in which stomach acid backs up into the throat.
Sore throats are also a common symptom of early pregnancy. In fact, about one-third of pregnant women report having a sore throat during early pregnancy. The cause of the sore throat in early pregnancy is not known, but it may be related to changes in the immune system that occur during pregnancy.
The symptoms of a sore throat in early pregnancy are the same as the symptoms of a sore throat in non-pregnant women. These symptoms include a feeling of throat irritation, a scratchy or sore throat, a hoarse voice, pain when swallowing, and a swollen tonsil. In addition, pregnant women may experience a fever and a general feeling of being unwell.
The treatment of a sore throat in early pregnancy is the same as the treatment of a sore throat in non-pregnant women. This treatment includes resting, drinking plenty of fluids, taking over-the-counter pain medications such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), and using throat lozenges or throat sprays. In some cases, antibiotics may be prescribed if the cause of the sore throat is a bacterial infection.
Symptoms Of Early Pregnancy Before Missed Period
The earliest sign of pregnancy is a missed period. However, there are other symptoms of early pregnancy that can occur before a missed period.
Some women experience early signs of pregnancy such as fatigue, nausea, and breast tenderness. These symptoms can occur within the first few weeks of pregnancy.
If you are experiencing any of these early signs of pregnancy, it is important to take a pregnancy test to confirm whether or not you are pregnant.
Early Pregnancy Abortion
It can be difficult to make the decision to have an abortion, but it may be the best decision for you and your family. If you are considering an abortion, it is important to understand the types of abortion procedures that are available to you.
There are two types of abortion procedures: medical and surgical.
Medical abortion is a procedure that uses medication to end a pregnancy. There are two types of medical abortion:
1. Mifepristone, also known as RU-486, is a medication that blocks the hormone progesterone. Without progesterone, the lining of the uterus breaks down and the pregnancy is terminated.
2. Misoprostol, also known as Cytotec, is a medication that causes the uterus to contract and expel the pregnancy.
Medical abortion can be done up to 10 weeks after the last menstrual period.
Surgical abortion is a procedure that uses medical instruments to terminate a pregnancy. There are two types of surgical abortion:
1. Manual vacuum aspiration is a procedure that uses a handheld vacuum to remove the pregnancy.
2. Dilation and evacuation is a procedure that uses medical instruments to remove the pregnancy.
Surgical abortion can be done up to 20 weeks after the last menstrual period.
If you are considering an abortion, it is important to talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of each type of abortion procedure.
Period Cramps Early Pregnancy
Many women experience cramps early in their pregnancy. For some, the cramps are just like the ones they get right before their period. Others find that the cramps are more severe.
The cramps may be caused by the expanding uterus. As the uterus grows, it puts pressure on the ligaments and muscles that support it. This can cause pain and cramping.
The cramps may also be a sign of early pregnancy. As the embryo implants in the uterus, it may cause some cramping.
