If the “diagnosis” is confirmed, then the gynecologist will say that you have about 4-5 weeks of pregnancy? From where the fact that the obstetric period is considered from the first day of the last menstruation. Even if you were preparing and dreamed of becoming a mother, this news would be like snow on your head (not a single pregnant woman checked), which is why, while you go to a gynecologist, think over all the questions you want to ask.

Will there be a gynecological examination?

The topic of examination in the gynecological chair with early pregnancy is very controversial. On the forums, you can read about what inspection was the cause of miscarriage.


However, it is the examination that shows that the uterus has increased in size, which means that someone already “lives” in it. Also, such an examination gives an understanding of the vaginal microflora and the state of the cervix (is there erosion, for example). This question is negotiate with your gynecologist.

Is there an ectopic pregnancy?

As a rule, having shown two strips on the test, the gynecologist will ask to be tested for the hormone hCG. As a rule, it is handed over twice – the second after 48 hours and it should grow strongly.For example, with the first analysis of hCG 700, and with the second already 1000-1500. This suggests that the pregnancy is developing and at this stage everything is fine.


But, if you are very worried, whether everything is in order, and whether there is no ectopic pregnancy, ask the gynecologist about vaginal ultrasound. It will show where the embryo is located. An ultrasound is a black circle with clear outlines. If the outlines are fuzzy, it is possible that the period is still quite small and you need to repeat the ultrasound in 3-4 days. But again, do not insist, ask the opinion of the gynecologist, whether to do a vaginal ultrasound and whether it does not harm the fetus.

What vitamins to take?

In the first trimester, which began even when the woman did not even suspect that she was pregnant, the organs of the child were laid. Ask your gynecologist what vitamins you need and should take, and in any case, do not assign yourself. Also, do not listen to the advice of friends who took one or other vitamins. Each pregnancy is individual, therefore, an individual approach to it. As a rule, in the first 10-12 weeks, the gynecologist prescribes to take only folic acid. Also, if the analysis showed that there are problems with hemoglobin (low), the doctor may prescribe to take iron.


The main thing is to be honest with the doctor, because during the first visit you will be asked whether this is the first pregnancy, whether there were abortions or miscarriages, and may ask a question about the number of sexual partners in the past year.

What kind of life is now lead?

Another major question to ask a gynecologist. After all, from now on (as you learned about pregnancy) you need to reconsider the nutrition, namely, exclude from the diet river fish, sushi with fresh fish, unpasteurized cheeses, fast food, smoked products, carbonated sugary drinks and others. Now you can not take a bath and a very hot shower, as well as be nervous, drink pills (every pill in the first trimester needs to be coordinated with the gynecologist, since there is still no placenta – a protective barrier for the fetus), to lift weights, etc. Tell the gynecologist about the working conditions so that he understands what advice to give you.

Can I play sports?


The first trimester is dangerous miscarriage, so the question about the sport should definitely ask the gynecologist. His answer – yes, or not, or not to overdo it – will depend on what kind of sport you prefer. Maybe you should just reduce the load, or even pick up a less traumatic look.

Can I continue to have sex with my husband?

As a rule, if after the examination and consultation of the gynecologist his conclusion is all right now, then the pregnant woman can continue to have sex, BUT, now without extreme experiments.


For example, you can see the poses of the Kama Sutra , which are suitable for the first trimester. However, it is worth noting, as a rule, before the 13th week the female body undergoes such a hormonal adjustment (plus fatigue and toxicosis) that there is no desire at all. It may appear in the second trimester. But again, it is better to coordinate all actions with the gynecologist!
