Menstrual Cycle Day 24


What is happening internally?

The corpus luteum continues to release high amounts of progesterone to maintain the uterine lining, though if conception did not happen, the amount of progesterone being release begins to drop due to the corpus luteum dying. If conception did occur the zygote (fertilized egg) is increasing in size and growing every day. The amounts of hCG keeps increasing.

Outward symptoms:

Basal body temperatures remain high above the coverline, though if conception did not occur, they may begin to drop down. Cervix is low, firm and closed, though it may soften a bit and rotate up in preparation for menstruation or as a result of pregnancy. Cervical fluid is dry or it may become creamy or sticky. You may experience bloating or water retention. You may experience a headache. If conception occurred you may have to urinate frequently and may or may not experience food cravings/aversions. Fatigue is another early symptom of pregnancy you may feel.

I'm 19. my period usually lasts 7 days, and is very heavy, but this time it lasted 4 days. it started on monday and ended thursday, but on friday i had a brown discharge. it's the 12th now, and i have headaches on and off. i keep getting hot flashes, stomach cramps, and have to pee a little bit more than usual. is it too early to take a pregnancy test? could i be pregnant? please help.

I started my period on the fourth. it only lasted for three days. on the first and second day, it was heavy like normal. on the third day, it was a little lighter. then, it stopped in the morning or late afternoon. then, the next day, around three or four, a spurt of red color came out and that was it. i haven't had any bleeding since, but i have had a kind of aching tightening sensation in my belly that lasted for about two weeks, but then stopped. then, i had a sensitive to poking period with my belly for a few days. since then, i've gotten a cold, my nipples are tender, i can't sleep on my stomach because of the uneasy feeling i get. my vaginal lips, as i call them, are purple. i've been testing every three weeks or so. my last negative test was on the sixteenth. i want feedback or thought on if i could still be pregnant. i'm planning on testing again on the fifth if my period doesn't start on the 31 or feb 1st.

Hey ladies. at 8 dpo, i took a pregnancy test, and it was a faint positive. i'm now on cycle day 24 and i am experiencing a bad headache and a backache like when i was pregnant back in may. the pregnancy test was just a little pink. not too much, but defiantly noticeable with the pink on both sides where the pregnant line should be. what do you think ladies? ya or nah?

Hi all, i'm on day 24 of my cycle, had a frozen egg transfer on day 19 (6 days ago). i have one week to go for my last blood test (also when my next cycle is due). i have been experiencing mild cramps yesterday and today. my question is, is it my periods coming or could it be possible embryo is implanting, and/or is it to early for implantation?
