Breast pain ceased during pregnancy - what does this mean? Up to what time does the chest hurt?
While waiting for a child, the representative of the weaker sex is asked a lot of exciting questions. One of them is the effect of fetal development on her condition. Can a woman somehow determine that something is wrong with the baby? In this article, we will talk about a time when the breast suddenly stopped to hurt during pregnancy. What does this symptom mean? This will be described below.
The condition of the mammary glands of the weaker sex directly depends on the production of certain hormones. Throughout the menstrual cycle, the female breast undergoes strong changes. So, before the next menstruation, it can be filled, increased in size or even sick. The nipples become more sensitive than at the beginning of the cycle. All this is recognized as an absolutely normal reaction to the change of the hormonal background.
With the onset of pregnancy there is a transformation of this gland, because it is created for the subsequent feeding of the baby. Throughout the period of gestation, the female breast is preparing for this important process. Every month in the glands, there are some changes.
Why does chest hurt during pregnancy?
Chest at the beginning of pregnancy often behaves the same as before the next menstruation. A woman notes swelling of the glands, an increase in their sensitivity and a slight increase in size. If, with the advent of menstruation, these symptoms soon pass, then during pregnancy they not only persist, but also intensify.
Why does my chest hurt during pregnancy? Any obstetrician or gynecologist can answer this question. Blame for all the hormones produced by the ovaries and adrenal glands are progesterone. It should be noted that this substance is produced in non-pregnant women in the second half of the cycle. However, when the child is born, its number is actively growing. It is under the action of progesterone that there is a change in the mammary glands.
How long does the chest hurt during pregnancy?
At the moment there is no unambiguous answer to this question. Any doctor will tell you that everything depends on the individual characteristics of the body. There are women who do not feel pain in the mammary glands at all. They note only a slight swelling and increased sensitivity.
When do the fairer women notice these unpleasant sensations? What week? Some women note that they already had a chest on the first one. Weeks of pregnancy from the second through the fourth are also often remembered by similar sensations. However, this occurs only when using the embryonic timing calculation. During this period, implantation of the fetal egg in the wall of the genital organ takes place. Such unpleasant sensations can persist for one, three or all nine months. Many women note that at a certain time the breast has not hurt during pregnancy. What does this mean? Let's try to understand in detail.
If you have 8 weeks of pregnancy, the chest has stopped hurting, and all the symptoms of the new condition have disappeared, then it may be a dysfunctional outcome. Often at this time, a stop occurs in the development of the embryo. There can be many reasons for this. In some cases, the fetus ceases to develop because of genetic abnormalities, in other situations, the blame for everything is the lifestyle of the mother and the disturbances in her hormonal background.
With the fading of pregnancy, the production of the same progesterone stops. That's why the woman notes that the soreness of the mammary glands has disappeared, they have become softer, and also lost sensitivity.
Threatened miscarriage (progesterone deficiency)
If the chest has ceased to be ill during pregnancy, then it may be a lack of a hormone that supports the normal development of a new condition. With timely access to a doctor there is a chance to save the baby. In this case, the maintenance of pregnancy is required. It is carried out in a hospital or outpatient. In this case, such drugs as "Utrozhestan", "Dyufaston" or injections of "Progesterone" are prescribed.
The mammary glands cease to be ill because of insufficient production of the corresponding hormones. If you make up for their deficiency in an artificial way, then the pregnancy will be successful. In most cases, a woman can endure and give birth to an infant.
Disorders of the pituitary and thyroid gland
In some cases, pain in the mammary gland during pregnancy can disappear due to pathology of the pituitary gland. Also, a violation of the production of thyroid hormones can lead to this phenomenon. Often, the lack of treatment in such situations leads to the termination of pregnancy. Only a timely identification of the problem and its correction can help bear and give birth to a healthy baby.
It is worth noting that in some cases everything can be completely different. At the same time, the breast of the future mother does not cease to hurt, but on the contrary, it gives even more discomfort and unpleasant sensations.
Normal state of the body
If the chest has stopped hurting during pregnancy, is it normal? This process is the absolute norm in the case when the period of development of the embryo exceeds 12 weeks.
The thing is that the placenta begins to function actively from the second trimester (after 11-13 weeks). She takes responsibility for maintaining the pregnancy and developing the baby. In this regard, the female body no longer needs large doses of progesterone. The ovaries and adrenal glands begin to gradually reduce the production of this substance, subsequently completely stopping it. It is worth noting that while the baby is developing quite normally, pregnancy is progressing and there is no reason to worry.
Condition before birth
Why do chest and nipples stop on late pregnancy? The whole point is that in this way the body of a woman is preparing for a new natural process - breastfeeding. If during the gestation period the representative of the weaker sex observes the increased sensitivity of the mammary glands and nipples, then with the approach of the term of childbirth everything changes.
In the first days after birth, the baby can deliver a new mum a strong discomfort during breastfeeding. All due to the fact that the nipple is not yet coarse enough and still has an increased sensitivity. To this situation is not exacerbated, the woman's body is reconstructed several weeks before the birth. This leads to the fact that the mammary gland and nipple become more coarse and somewhat lose their sensitivity.
You now know why the breasts may become ill during pregnancy, and until what time it happens. If you have disappeared symptoms of a new interesting situation in the early term, then it is necessary to get to your doctor as soon as possible. You may need some correction that involves the use of medication. It is performed only after laboratory tests and revealing the level of a hormone. Often future mothers are offered hospital treatment. Do not give up on him, because it's about the life of your baby. Remember that it is better to consult an expert once again than to regret something that you did not do. Easy you pregnancy!
