Navel Is Hard When Pressed And Feels Twitch When Late For 2 Days. Is Pregnant?
Good evening, doc I want to ask. 2 weeks ago, my husband and I had a husband and wife relationship but we used safety because it was still in the family planning program. I have been late for 2 days of docks, and around my belly button feels hard when pressed with a twitch when I lie down. Is this a sign of pregnancy?
Thank you for the question.
Need to be clarified, what birth control plan do you use?
Menstrual delay can indeed happen one of them because of pregnancy. During pregnancy also, many subjective symptoms that can be experienced by a mother, including a stomach that hardens and twitches as you experience. But besides being pregnant, complaints in the stomach like this may also arise due to other reasons, such as intestinal peristalsis, abdominal aortic pulses, reasonable muscle twitches, and even psychosomatic disorders. Therefore, all these symptoms can not be sure whether you are pregnant or not if it has not been confirmed by a doctor's examination.
Delayed menstruation, in addition to being pregnant, may also be caused by hormonal imbalances (for example due to the effects of stress, fatigue, side effects of hormonal birth control, extreme diets, unhealthy lifestyles), ovarian cysts, hyperthyroidism, grape pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy, and etc. In general, if you have used birth control correctly according to the direction of your doctor, then your potential for pregnancy will be quite small.
Since COVID-19 is currently being endemic, we recommend that you first try to do a pregnancy test independently at home, that is, with a testpack. For accurate results, try to do a testpack at least 1 week after a late menstruation. Later, you can confirm the results of the testpack by going to a doctor or obstetrician after the outbreak has subsided.
The rest, if your testpack is negative and you are likely not pregnant, so that your menstruation is smoother, you need to do this too:
Regularly exercise and rest every day
Eat a variety of healthy foods and contain rich in antioxidants, including fruits, vegetables, and whole grains
Maintain your ideal body weight
Don't be too sad, anxious, especially stressed too much
Do not carelessly take medicine or herbal remedies
Hope this helps ...
