Are cramping and spotting early signs of pregnancy?

How to tell if it’s menstruation or pregnancy


When you are trying to conceive, each month is a rollercoaster of hope and excitement, often characterized by a newfound awareness of the changes that occur in your body over the course each month. You may notice cramping and spotting and wonder if these symptoms are the first signs that you are pregnant.

While cramping and spotting can simply be indications that you are about to start menstruating, they can also be signs that you are pregnant!



Some facts to know:



  • Cramping often occurs as the egg moves from the ovaries into the fallopian tubes and finally to the uterus. In a woman who is not pregnant, this process ends with menstruation, when both the egg and the uterine lining are shed. However, if you are pregnant, the movement of your fertilized egg along the same path may trigger these cramps.

  • Spotting can also be an early sign of pregnancy. Implantation bleeding is often confused for spotting and occurs when a fertilized egg implants into the wall of the uterus where it will begin developing as a fetus. This bleeding is generally earlier than you would experience spotting normally during your period, doesn’t last as long, and is lighter in color.




Still unsure? Take a test or call your doctor


Early signs of pregnancy can be subtle, so if you are wondering if you might be pregnant, the best thing to do is take a pregnancy test. Today’s tests are more accurate than ever and can successfully detect pregnancy in many women before they even miss a period!

  1. My previous menstruation cycle started on November. 27 and so lasted 7 days. It is now December 19th and I am having very light, dark brown bleeding with slight cramping pains. I've been trying to get pregnant for just a few months now. Can this be implantation bleeding? If it is, in how much time could i complete a test for pregnancy?
