Ovulation Symptoms Gas

Sandy asks…

Within how long after having sex does implantion normally happen?

Had unprotected sex on Thursday, ovulation should be around today (Sunday) And I am aware sperm can live for 3-5 days once inside me, but how long until that would happen, and my next period wouldn’t be until the 17th and I don’t like waiting.

I want to be pregnant

I am 22 and live with my future hubby

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

You don’t count from when you had sex. You count from ovulation. If the egg is fertilized, it will implant sometime between 6 to 12 days after ovulation. The vast majority of embryos take between 8 and 10 days to implant. The reason that it takes a week or more is because the fertilized egg has to travel down the fallopian tube to get to the uterus. Considering the TINY size of the egg and the fact that it doesn’t propel itself but gets brushed along, this is a pretty epic journey involving a comparatively very long distance inside you. It takes time.

After implantation, you still can’t expect a home pregnancy test to turn positive for at least another couple of days. This is because the embryo doesn’t start producing HcG until after implantation. After it does start producing this hormone, it will take those extra few days to build up to high enough levels to turn an HPT positive.

This means that if you *know* or are at least relatively sure (due to observing your body’s signs, not just some doofy ovulation calendar on line) that you ovulated on January 1, you can’t expect a pregnancy test to be positive until at least around January 12 at the earliest, and most likely at least January 15 or so.

Unfortunately, you also can’t really expect any early pregnancy symptoms before then either. The vast majority of so-called “early pregnancy symptoms” that people think they’re experiencing are actually progesterone symptoms. Progesterone prepares the body for pregnancy after EVERY ovulation, regardless of whether you actually end up pregnant or not. Progesterone can cause tender breasts/nipples, headaches, fatigue, nausea, appetite changes, cramping, bloating, gas, skin break-outs, aches and pains, mood changes or irritability, and so on. Women who do fall pregnant will experience many of these symptoms and others at a much more intense degree as pregnancy hormones increase, but the earlier symptoms are NOT pregnancy symptoms even if you do later find out you’re pregnant. They’re just normal progesterone symptoms that we would all notice if we all paid closer attention to our bodies even when we didn’t hope to be pregnant. You can’t experience any true pregnancy-only symptoms until HcG has built up to high enough levels to start impacting your body– and by the time HcG has built up that high, you’ll get a positive HPT. Before a positive HPT, levels are too low to have any real impacts on your body yet. Plain and simple.

So I know you’re impatient and all, but the simple facts are that you’ll simply have to wait until about 14 days after ovulation (up to 20 days after any individual sex act, accounting for the life of sperm) before you can expect a positive HPT. You’ll also have to wait at least that long before experiencing any pregnancy symptoms, if not longer. Sorry. Being a parent involves a lot of patience throughout your child-raising years, though, so it’s best to go ahead and start practicing being patient now.

Good luck!

Linda asks…

how long after you ovulate would a pregnancy test be positive?

i’ve been TTC and i ovulated last friday (using ovulation predictor kits) i dont know if i’m crazy but could pregnancy symptoms start at all this soon. (if i got pregnant) i guess it’s been a week since then. but today at work i got so incredibly nauseated that i was in the bathroom just waiting to throw up. and then bam, it went away after twenty minutes or so.

. . . just curious when i can start testing :)

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Yes they can start that soon.With my second pregnancy I started feeling like I had the flu/PMS from hel* a week after my period ended.Cramps,bloating,gas,exhaustion,heartburn/indigestion from my collar bone to my pubic line-the works.I thought I was going to have a really bad period early.Don’t start going broke buying hpts and taking numerous tests a day.You’ll drive yourself crazy and end up feeling really disappointed when you keep getting BFN’s cuz you’re taking them too early.I didn’t get a positive until my period was 3 weeks late with my second.I got a negative hpt the day I was due and a negative blood test 5 days later and was assured by my dr that I was just pre-menstrual lol So my advice to you is don’t drive yourself crazy obsessing over every little twinge-I know it’s hard not to when ttc-and wait til you are actually late before you start testing.Good luck and baby dust.

Helen asks…

Could this acid reflux I’m getting right now be a super early pregnancy sign?

I have never felt this way before, but the gas in my upper chest and throat appears to be acid reflux. I was on antibiotics last week and had sex where my fiance “pulled out” on Wednesday of last week. I am 21, could I already be experiencing a pregnancy sign with this heart burn and acid reflux or is it not possible to experience signs like that one week after unprotected sex?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Acid reflux and heart burn are more typical further along in pregnancy, not usually an early symptom. Pregnant women get heart burn more commonly when the uterus is expanding to make room for the growing baby and begins to press against the stomach. While it is not impossible for some early pregnancy signs to occur only a week after suspected conception, it isn’t typical. It is commonly assumed that the day you have sex is the day that conception occurred. However, because sperm can live inside a woman for a few days and it is difficult to know exactly when ovulation takes place, the chances of actual fertilization taking place a day or two or even longer after sex is pretty high. Then, after the sperm fertilizes the egg, it takes about 7-10 days for it to implant in the uterus. It isn’t until implantation that the pregnancy hormone, hCG begins to be produced which is thought to contribute to the occurrence of pregnancy symptoms. I wouldn’t assume that heart burn or acid reflux was a sign of pregnancy but more likely due to something you ate or even due to stress. I suggest you wait to see if you miss a period before worrying too much. While the withdrawal or pull out method of birth control isn’t the most reliable, it does work some of the time. I am going to guess that you aren’t pregnant, but take a home pregnancy test if your period doesn’t show up or it appears different.
