Loosening the uterus
The loosening of the uterus is one of the symptoms of pregnancy. However, it is difficult to say that you are pregnant with certainty on the basis of symptoms alone. Each of them can have a completely different background, so the result of the pregnancy test should be almost 100% certain, and the ultrasound examination should give you complete certainty. In addition, the uterus becomes plump and soft as the fertile days begin, and hardens and closes with the infertile days.

1. What can a loosening of the uterus mean?
A fluffy uterus means that this organ becomes soft, pasty. During a gynecological examination, your doctor may also find that the vagina is bluish. And how to test the consistency of the cervix on your own? By inserting your fingers into the vagina until you feel resistance. The cervical opening will then be under your fingers. Depending on the day of the cycle, the uterus may be:
- lowered, closed and hard - after ovulation and at the beginning of the cycle, i.e. on infertile days,
- raised, open and soft - around ovulation, i.e. on fertile days.
The cervical factor, studied in the treatment of infertility, is also useful in determining whether a woman may be pregnant. If your cervix has been raised, open and soft for longer than normal, you may be pregnant. It is a pregnancy symptom that occurs approximately 2-8 weeks after conception.
Women trying to get pregnant also use a basal body temperature test during the menstrual cycle. During ovulation, the temperature rises slightly, and if fertilization occurs during this time, it does not return to normal, but remains higher. If a woman detects these two symptoms - an elevated basal body temperature and a plump in the uterus - she may be pregnant. However, you need to make sure that the elevated body temperature is not due to an infection. It is advisable to do a pregnancy test, bearing in mind that the treatment of infertility with drugs containing chorionic gonadotropin will falsify the result, always giving a positive result.
2. Other symptoms of pregnancy
A woman's body is changed under the influence of pregnancy hormones, which begin to be produced right after conception. The most important of these are chorionic gonadotropin (produced by the placenta, detected by pregnancy tests), progesterone (produced by the corpus luteum) and estrogens (produced by the ovaries). Their action on the mother's body causes the appearance of typical pregnancy symptoms, such as:
- morning nausea,
- frequent urination,

The above symptoms are possible symptoms of pregnancy. A slightly higher probability of pregnancy can be inferred from another group of pregnancy ailments, such as:
- stopping menstruation
- sore breasts
- darkening of the halo around the nipple,
- darkening of the line running from the navel to the pubic mound,
- cramps in the lower abdomen
- enlargement and loosening of the uterus,
- persistently slightly elevated temperature.
However, pregnancy can be confirmed with certainty only after ultrasound examination, detection of the fetal heartbeat or fetal movements.
