Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Your complaint may be a sign of pregnancy. This is because you have entered the fertile period when married. The body of a pregnant woman will produce pregnancy hormone, which is HCG. This hormone can affect the digestive tract (especially stomach acid, so it is produced more and causes the stomach to be unwell), mood and others. In addition to the influence of the hormone HCG, psychological factors (especially experienced by women who really want a pregnancy) can also be a cause of complaints that you feel.
You can be sure by doing a pack test or pregnancy test using the first urine from waking up in the morning. You can do this check up after 1 week late menstruation. If the results are negative, you can repeat it in 1-2 weeks if you still haven't menstruated. And if the results are positive, then you can consult with an obstetrician, so you can have a pregnancy check. The doctor will also carry out an ultrasound examination of the pregnancy to see whether the fetus is attached to the uterine wall (to rule out a pregnancy outside the uterus) and to see whether the fetus is developing (to rule out a possible blighted ovum pregnancy). Therefore, an ultrasound examination at the beginning of pregnancy is very necessary to do. You can do an ultrasound examination after 3 weeks late menstruation, at that time the estimated gestational age is 7 weeks, so that the assessment can be done and fetal heart rate (FHR) can also be heard through ultrasound (FHR can be heard through ultrasound at gestational age) 6.5-7 weeks).
Meanwhile, eat healthy and nutritious food, get enough rest and manage stress wisely. You also have to consume vitamin folic acid, even this vitamin should be consumed since doing a pregnant program (before pregnancy occurs).
Thus hopefully useful.
