How Does It Take To Get Pregnant

More questions from patients:

Your chances of getting pregnant from precum are pretty low. But it is possible.

Precum, also referred to as pre-ejaculate, is a tiny amount of fluid that emerges from the penis upon arousal but prior to ejaculation. It doesn’t usually have any sperm in it. But occasionally, a small amount of sperm can be found in some people’s precum. So sperm may enter the vagina and possibly fertilize an egg in this way.

The withdrawal method (pulling out) isn’t the most effective at preventing pregnancy because it’s impossible to determine who has sperm in their precum and who doesn’t.

Put a condom on before your genitals touch your partner’s if you don’t want to become pregnant. Better yet, combine the use of contraceptives with condoms.

Pregnancy lasts about 40 weeks. The stages of pregnancy are divided into 3 trimesters. Each trimester is a little longer than 13 weeks.

You’ll go through many changes during each trimester. Some people feel lots of discomfort. Others don’t feel much at all.

You’ll probably experience a lot of physical changes during the first trimester, including:

  • Tiredness
  • Tender, swollen breasts
  • Morning sickness
  • Cravings or distaste for certain foods
  • Mood swings
  • Constipation
  • Needing to pee more often
  • Headache
  • Heartburn
  • Weight gain or loss
  • When you reach the second trimester, the majority of these symptoms disappear. At this point, your belly will enlarge and you will start to feel the fetus move. You may also notice:

  • Body aches
  • Stretch marks
  • Darkening of your areolas
  • A line on your skin running from your belly button to pubic bone
  • Patches of darker skin
  • Numb or tingling hands
  • Itching on your abdomen, palms, and feet
  • Swelling of your ankles, fingers, or face
  • Some of the same symptoms could persist into the third trimester. You may also experience:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Needing to pee even more often
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Your breasts leaking a watery pre-milk called colostrum
  • Your belly button sticking out
  • Trouble sleeping
  • The baby “dropping” or moving lower in your abdomen
  • Contractions
  • Call your doctor or midwife, go to your nearby Planned Parenthood health center, or seek medical attention if you’re unsure whether your symptoms are normal.

    Let’s First Look at How Pregnancy Happens

    Understanding the procedures that occur prior to nidation is necessary to comprehend how to become pregnant. To get pregnant ovulation must take place. This happens when an egg matures, is forced through the fallopian tube, and is then available for fertilization by the sperm. The uterine lining has thickened to make room for a fertilized egg. The uterine lining will shed during menstruation, also known as your period, if conception is unsuccessful.
