Is pain in uterus a conception symptom?

by Anonymous

Hi I'm a 35 year old female. I don't have any children as I've been struggling for last 6 years.

Last week when we had sex on day 24 of my cycle (I have 34 day cycle) I felt pain in my uterus which stopped after a few minutes.

Next when I was washing my bathroom, I again felt pain in my uterus and back as I was having periods but after few hours it stopped.

Now this is day 29 of my cycle but did not feel any pain after that day.

Is this a conception symptom or something else?

Please reply.

Yes, pain in the uterus can be a sign of conception (but not always). Here's what's going on...

About a week after ovulation, the embryo will implant into the uterus. This can cause several symptoms such as pains, aches, even some implantation bleeding.

Once the fertilized egg is in the uterus, it will begin to burrow into the lining of the uterus (endometrium). This is what causes the uterine discomfort.

However, not all pain in the uterus is because of conception (implantation). And you can have pain without being pregnant.

Unfortunately, the only way to tell for sure if you are pregnant is to take a pregnancy test at around the expected time your period (menstruation bleeding) is due. For you that would be around Day 34 of your cycle.

The two weeks after conception (fertilization of the egg) is the hardest to wait (during the luteal phase).

Many women who are TTC (trying to conceive), including myself, are very in-tune with their bodies. And we may feel many symptoms that we believe could be conception symptoms. It's totally normal.

Hope you see two beautiful lines on that pregnancy test in a few days.

Hope this answers your question,
