Keep Track of Periods and Pregnancy

Posted on

A missed period usually calls for two very contrasting reactions: one of ecstacy and hope and the other of worry and fear. This is because a temporary pause in your period is one of the first and most evident signs of pregnancy. However, there are exceptions in both cases. Women may experience a late period (by 3 – 7 days) due to change in factors like stress levels, exercise routines, dietary habits, and illnesses. Similarly, pregnant women may experience spotting or bleeding due to several reasons: implantation bleeds, fluctuations in hormones, complications with your placenta, cervical bleeding, or a miscarriage.

Vaginal bleeding is a component of your menstrual cycle, it isn’t your menstrual cycle. Every month our body prepares for a potential pregnancy whether we plan for it or not. Our cycle is a culmination of three main phases: follicular phase, ovulatory phase (ovulation) and the luteal phase. 
Additionally it results in the fall and rise of four hormone levels in our body: follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, estrogen, and progesterone. While most pregnant women do not experience vaginal bleeding, some may.

Hence, it is important to not jump to a conclusion when you experience symptoms that may hint at pregnancy. The following are symptoms a woman may perceives before or  during, pregnancy and periods.
