Establishing the fact of pregnancy does not cause great difficulties. They occur only in the first 5-8 weeks after the onset of pregnancy, when its signs are not clearly pronounced. At a later date, after a correct and complete examination, the possibility of error is minimal. And in the second half of pregnancy, when reliable signs are determined, mistakes in the diagnosis of pregnancy occur only inattentive examination. In such cases, the question is not so much to determine the diagnosis - pregnancy, how many to determine the duration and nature of the pregnancy (physical or pathological), the period of granting antenatal leave, the condition of the fetus, its size, position and member of the uterine cavity, dates of future births,

Diagnosis of pregnancy

Signs of pregnancy - a characteristic change in the body of a pregnant woman, which indicates the presence of pregnancy. These signs are manifested when examining a pregnant woman, palpating her abdomen, vaginal and two-handed examination of a woman, and also using additional survey methods. All signs of pregnancy are divided into questionable, probable and reliable.

Doubtful signs of pregnancy

Doubtful signs of pregnancy appear at the beginning of pregnancy and are caused by general changes in the body of a pregnant woman.

These include:

- Dyspeptic disorders (salivation, nausea, morning vomiting, changes in appetite, taste whims)

- Change in olfactory sensations (aversion to spirits, tobacco smoke, etc )

- Functional changes from the nervous system and the psyche (irritability, drowsiness, mood instability, etc )

- Pigmentation of the skin on the face, along the white line of the abdomen, the nipples and the okolososkovyh circles.

All these signs are often found in pregnant women, but are not necessarily associated with those changes in the body that occur under the influence of the onset of pregnancy.
