So I know many people will say it's way too early for implantation bleeding,but pretty convinced it's what I've experienced.
So on 4dpo I was walking home from visiting family, all of a sudden I got a very very sharp pain , it was exactly like a stitch but lower down. Thought it was odd but after 10months ttc I know better than to read into it. But then when I got home I went to the bathroom to find spots of blood on the tissue paper, this has NEVER EVER happened,it only happened for two wipes and then it was gone, it was definitely related to the pain I experienced.
I've spend months and months being hung up on ttc, this month I was a lot more relaxed as I'm going abroad next weekend so haven't had time to worry about ttc and was looking forward to all the cocktails,
Typical eh?
So I'm 100% sure I'm not looking for symptoms that aren't there, also have lots of creamy cm and experienced severe diarrhea 1,2&3 dpo, and have been extremely gassy.(oh said I was farting for 3 hours this morning in my sleep) lovely [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23] I'm so embarrassed lol

Question is, has anyone experienced implantation this early?

Does implantation so soon mean there's more chance of ectopic?

And also it would just be nice to chat to someone,I'm 7dpo today and due AF the 17/18th of April.


Patent Ductus Arteriosus - Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

If you’ve been trying to conceive, and are looking forward to seeing a sign that you’re pregnant, you’ll be more receptive to certain signs that your body is giving you. But, is it common for pregnancy symptoms to show up early?

The best way of knowing if you’re pregnant is to take a home test after a missed period. However, some women have been known to experience symptoms as early as four days after ovulation. Let’s take an in-depth look into whether this can be taken as a clear sign of pregnancy.

What Is 4 DPO?

4 DPO, or four days post ovulation, is an early stage in pregnancy. If the egg released during ovulation is fertilized, it transforms into a zygote, and enters the uterus through your Fallopian tube.

The zygote will split into 16 different cells, known as totipotent cells, within 4 days of fertilization. Totipotent cells can develop into any part of the human body. At this stage, the zygote is called a morula, which further divides to form a blastocyst. This is the very first stage of an embryo. You’re considered to be pregnant when this embryo gets implanted in the lining of your uterus.

At 4 DPO, the egg has just been fertilized, and could be at the morula or early blastocyst stage. Your body may start releasing hormones such as human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) and progesterone to maintain a healthy pregnancy. However, in most pregnancies, the hCG hormone is not released until after implantation.

Occurrence of 4 DPO

The occurrence of symptoms at 4 DPO is unlikely for most women. However, if you’ve been actively trying to conceive, you may be more sensitive towards changes in your body, some of which may look like very early pregnancy symptoms.

If you don’t see any changes at 4 DPO, you don’t have to worry, because there are still a few more days until you will technically be pregnant. Occurrence of concrete pregnancy symptoms is very rare at 4 DPO, and only a handful of women have even reported experiencing mild symptoms.

Pregnancy Symptoms You May Notice at 4 DPO

While it’s not very common, some women can notice pregnancy symptoms as early as at 4 DPO. These may be very mild, and are not a definite indicator of pregnancy. Most of these symptoms are common signs of pregnancy as well as the menstrual cycle, making their cause hard to distinguish.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms at 4 DPO, it is recommended to wait until your first missed period before diagnosing them.

1. Cramping

Abdominal cramping in the early days of pregnancy has been noticed by some women. But since period cramps and 4 DPO cramps aren’t distinguishable, this can be a little confusing, and not entirely reliable. You may even experience cramping during ovulation. So, although you can’t entirely write it off, it is not very likely that these cramps are a result of pregnancy.

2. Spotting

A common cause of spotting during the early stage of pregnancy is implantation bleeding. However, implantation at 4 DPO is not common, since it usually occurs 6 to 12 days after fertilization. Although the egg may have reached your uterus, it will take a few days to implant. This is when your body secretes hormones to prepare the uterine lining for successful implantation.

Any spotting at 4 DPO may not be a pregnancy symptom. If you do have spotting at this time, it’s recommended that you visit your doctor to rule out any other causes. If you have conceived and are at 4 DPO, you may see implantation bleeding in the following days. Don’t worry if you don’t, as not all women experience this symptom, and some may even tend to miss it, as it’s barely noticeable.

3. Nausea

Nausea or morning sickness is a well-known symptom of pregnancy. The chances of you experiencing nausea before you miss your period are very slim, with only 10 per cent of the women experiencing it. Nausea is often a symptom of the rise in hormone levels in your body, which will take a little longer to manifest.

If you’re at 4 DPO and have no signs of nausea, you’re good. Since nausea comes a little later, you have a few nausea-free days to look forward to!

4. Tender Breasts

Sensitive or tender breasts are also a sign of pregnancy as well as menstruation. While you can’t discount it as being a pregnancy symptom induced by a rise in pregnancy hormones, it can just as well be due to hormonal changes during your menstrual period.

5. Fatigue

Feeling tired throughout the day may appear to be an early symptom of pregnancy. This is common for women, especially in their first trimester. But, it isn’t a concrete sign of pregnancy.

6. Bloating and Food Cravings

Like most other symptoms, these are also common to pregnancy and your period cycle, but not all women experience it.

There are other symptoms like headaches, frequent urination, mood swings, food aversion, constipation, and nasal congestion that you may experience. Symptoms like these are usually experienced during the first trimester of pregnancy, and aren’t very common in the very early stages for most women.

Can a BFP Test Be Done at 4 DPO?

It’s tempting to reach for a home pregnancy test the minute you notice even the mildest symptom. However, it’s important to know how these tests work, in order to understand why doing this might not render the best results.

Pregnancy tests detect the levels of human chorionic gonadotropin, or the hCG, hormone in your body. The hormone level needs to be high enough for the test to detect, to receive a big fat positive (BFP) test result. hCG is released by your placenta only after the egg is implanted, which happens at about 6 to 10 DPO. Hence, you’re unlikely to see a positive on that home pregnancy test at 4 DPO.

You may even see a negative result, even if you have conceived. So, it is best to wait until after you’ve missed your period to get a test. At around 13 to 15 DPO, you should have high enough hCG levels to have a positive test if you’re pregnant.

If you test negative at this point, but you have a good feeling that you’re pregnant, you should see a doctor to confirm the same. False negatives can happen when you take a home test. It could be because you took the test too early, or your body needs more time to release hCG. Getting a blood test from a doctor can clarify this for you.

4 DPO is a very early stage of your pregnancy. While the egg may be fertilized and you may experience certain mild symptoms, it is best to wait until you miss your period to confirm the pregnancy. Only a few women may even experience these symptoms, so you may want to wait for a few days for confirmation.

Heavy bleeding 4dpo but high BBT??

Hi ladies I haven’t been on Babycentre much for a while after my mmc in June 2016 so apologies if you don’t know me and hi to all the new members that are here since I’ve been away.
To cut a very long story short, I’ve been struggling to conceive (dh and I have both been checked and there aren’t any problems and so our not being able to get pregnant is unexplained). 5 months ago I decided to start temping my bbt (vaginally) and inputting my data into the fertility friend app and this has put my mind at ease knowing I ovulate every month the day of or the day after a positive opk. My luteal phase is usually 12 days and I’ve been optimistic that all is well on my part anyway. According to fertility friend I ovulated on Monday, 4 days ago, and last night I had some light pink spotting before I went to bed which I’ve never experienced before. However, I’ve woken up this morning with full on AF, heavy red bleeding with clots and I’ve had to use tampons. I don’t have my usual period cramps so I’m not in any pain but I’m confused, worried, devastated that my period is here already, I only came off my last period 14 days ago. I’m even more confused that my temp shot up this morning from 36.57 Celsius yesterday morning to 36.87 so it can’t be AF can it with such a high temperature? Obviously I’m just going to have to see what happens and I’ll continue to temp but has anyone had this before or could anyone offer any insight as to what t could be? Thanks for reading and for any replies in advance xx

Based on all the google searches I've done, I know it's crazy to think this is IB but what else can this beeeee?

I noticed super light tan cm on 2 and 3 dpo. Now on 4 dpo, there is a little more and is a darker brown color. I also have super mild AF cramps. I have never had spotting this early in my cycle before and if this is from O wouldn't it be gone by now?! 

Can anyone relate to this?

What cervical mucus looks like if you are pregnant

A few weeks after they ovulate, a person may notice more cervical mucus, or cervical fluid, than usual. The mucus may also have a different consistency. Sometimes, this is a sign of pregnancy.

In this article, we describe how cervical fluid might change if a person is pregnant, other possible causes of these changes, and other early signs of pregnancy.

How it looks in early pregnancy

Cervical mucus is a fluid that comes from the cervix. It is one of the main components of vaginal discharge, it is typically clear or white, and it may have a faint odor.

In early pregnancy, there may be noticeably more of this mucus than usual. It may also have a runny, watery consistency.

If a person experiences implantation bleeding, the cervical fluid may have a pink tinge. Implantation bleeding occurs 8–10 days after ovulation, when a fertilized egg attaches to the lining of the womb.

However, not everyone experiences implantation bleeding, and some people who are pregnant do not have noticeably different cervical fluid.

Also, it is normal for cervical fluid to change in quantity and consistency over the course of a menstrual cycle. The changes vary from person to person, but generally, they are as follows:

  • after menstruation, cervical fluid is often thick, opaque, and less abundant
  • approaching ovulation, the fluid may become clear and elastic, similar in consistency to uncooked egg whites
  • after ovulation, the fluid again becomes opaque and thick

Finally, it is important to note that other factors can change the consistency of cervical mucus. We describe these later in this article.

How long does it take to change?

Hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and human chorionic gonadotropin, sometimes called HCG, are responsible for the early symptoms of pregnancy. It takes after implantation for these hormones to build up in the body.

As a result, a pregnant person may not see any changes in their cervical fluid or have any other signs of pregnancy until several weeks after conception.

If a person notices a change in their cervical fluid immediately after ovulation, the cause may be something other than pregnancy. And if there is no change, this does not necessarily mean that the person is not pregnant.

The simplest way to check for pregnancy is to use a home testing kit after the next missed period.

How to check cervical mucus 

Anyone who wants to check their cervical mucus should:

  1. Wash their hands thoroughly with soap and water.
  2. Insert a finger or two into the vagina, reaching up to the cervix.
  3. Sweep around the cervix to touch the fluid.
  4. Pull the finger or fingers out and observe the fluid.

A person may instead be able to check any cervical mucus on their underwear or wiped on a tissue.

Abundant, elastic cervical mucus can be an indication of when a person is most fertile. Anyone trying to conceive may find that checking the fluid regularly helps with identifying their fertile window.

What else can change cervical mucus?

Other factors besides pregnancy can influence what the cervical fluid looks like. Some common reasons for changes in cervical mucus include:


When semen mixes with vaginal fluids, it may temporarily change the texture of cervical mucus. The mucus may become cloudy or white or appear more abundant. Some may mistake this for a sign of pregnancy.

Lubricants and other products

Any products that a person uses in, on, or around the vagina may change the color or consistency of cervical fluid, or mimic it.

Some lubricants look similar to cervical fluid, for example, and a person may mistakenly believe that they are producing more than usual.

The menstrual cycle

Around ovulation, a person can produce up to more cervical fluid than earlier in their cycle. If a person ovulates later than usual, they may interpret this as a sign of pregnancy.

Keeping track of ovulation can help explain changes in cervical fluid.


Some infections can cause changes to vaginal discharge, including yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis. Contact a doctor if vaginal discharge becomes:

  • thick and white, with a similar texture to cottage cheese
  • gray
  • bright yellow or green
  • foul-smelling

It is especially important to receive treatment if pregnancy is a possibility, as some vaginal infections can pose a risk to pregnant people and fetuses.

Other signs of pregnancy 

The most reliable indicator of pregnancy is a positive test result after a missed period.

Some other include:

  • aversions to certain foods or smells
  • food cravings
  • nausea or vomiting
  • dizziness
  • spotting
  • breast pain or tenderness
  • feeling tired
  • mood changes
  • headaches
  • needing to urinate more often

It is important to keep in mind that many other health conditions can cause these symptoms.

A missed period alone is not enough to determine pregnancy, as many factors can cause a delay in menstruation. For the most reliable result, use a home pregnancy testing kit or contact a doctor for a blood test.

When to consult a doctor

A person should speak with a doctor if they:

  • have discharge that is thick and cloudy, like cottage cheese
  • have discharge that is yellow, gray, or green
  • have discharge with a foul odor
  • experience itching, burning, or odor coming from the vagina
  • experience pain during sexual intercourse or urination

Also, a person should speak with a doctor if they could be pregnant or have been trying to become pregnant for but have not yet conceived.


During early pregnancy, cervical fluid may look thinner or more watery. If a person experiences implantation bleeding, the fluid may contain a little blood.

However, other factors can also cause these changes, along with the other early signs of pregnancy.

Tracking changes in cervical mucus is not a reliable way to detect pregnancy. Anyone who wants to check whether they are pregnant should use a home testing kit or schedule a blood test with a doctor.

How I knew I Was Pregnant (5DPO)


4 DPO, also known as four days post ovulation. Knowing the possible time frame of becoming pregnant is very important for women. In the recent series on 13 DPO, 9, and 12 DPO 4 DPO, this article focuses on 4 DPO.


What Happens During 4 DPO?

Ovaries ovulate the ovum like dropping the ball; they are the mature eggs ready to meet and fertilize the sperm in the fallopian tube. The flower-like structure takes the dropped egg at the end of your fallopian tube. The egg then moves towards the uterus via your fallopian tube. The egg meets the sperm in the fallopian tube, and once they meet up, the sperm fertilizes the egg and forms the zygote, which moves towards the uterus and implants into the uterine wall. During this movement, it multiplies its cell count further and grows as an embryo. Uterine walls also would be developed with a rich blood supply and bedding to receive the zygote. Since this travel will be happening through the first 4-6 days, it is now quite challenging to be sure about your pregnancy during this period.

Meanwhile, the uterine wall will start to shed off if fertilization did not happen. This shedding off of the uterine layer is known as menstruation. Menstruation takes place in cycles, and the duration of the cycle differs between women. Ovulation would occur anywhere between 11 to 21 days of your menstrual cycle; it depends on the average duration of your menstrual cycle. These events are under the guidance of female reproductive hormones – estrogen and progesterone.

4 DPO & Estrogen

The ovaries secrete estrogen, which is the female reproductive hormone. Estriol is a common type of estrogen which is predominant during pregnancy. Estrogen controls the growth of the uterine lining called the endometrium. If no fertilization happens, estrogen levels drop abruptly, leading to the endometrium’s shedding. Subsequently, menstruation occurs.In the case of fertilization, estrogen joins hands with another sex hormone, progesterone. The duo maintains the pregnancy and stops ovulation during pregnancy. Estrogen is also responsible for females’ secondary sexual characteristics, such as breasts, wider hips, pubic hair, and armpit hair.


Progesterone is the other primary sex hormone, regulating menstruation and supporting pregnancy. A part of the ovary, adrenal glands, and placenta produce progesterone. When fertilization takes place, progesterone prepares the uterus to hold the pregnancy. It stimulates the development of glandular tissue and new blood vessels in the uterus. In the absence of fertilization, the endometrium sheds down, and menstruation begins.

4 DPO & Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG)

A rise in human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) levels begins when the zygote implants in the uterine cavity. Levels of hCG differ between individuals, so as the symptoms. If at all these symptoms occur, they are usually identical to those of your perimenstrual symptoms. Tracking your menstruation would help you identify those symptoms and distinguish whether they are related to pregnancy or periods.

Usually, the signs are indicators of altered hormonal levels in the blood. The hormone levels differ between individuals, and the symptoms vary. Similarly, the 4 DPO symptoms are infrequent and differ too. Having pregnancy symptoms at 4 DPO is very rare compared to 9, 12, or 13 DPO. Since the implantation takes place between 6 DPO – 8 DPO, subsequently, a rise of hCG occurs. You might experience symptoms of pregnancy on 4 DPO, but very unlikely.

By 4 DPO, you might experience the following signs that usually occur 12 days past ovulation or 12 DPO or later.


If you get cramps during the 4 DPO, that would be similar to the cramps during your periods. You would feel the pangs in your lower abdomen, but cramps are not specific and unreliable evidence of pregnancy.

Spotting or Bleeding

The spotting usually occurs after the implantation of the embryo. The reason behind this is the tissue shedding in the uterus when the fertilized egg gets implanted. But this ‘implantation spotting’ can occur 7 to 12 days following fertilization, which might coincide with the dates of your next period. Since it might last for 2 or 3 days, you might get confused with menstruation despite the amount and characteristics of bleeding. But in 4 DPO, it is less likely to have these symptoms since the ovum is still in transit towards its destination – the uterus.


Nausea is a famous symptom of pregnancy. A substantial rise of hCG following implantation doubles up hCG levels every 48 hours to cause nausea. Nausea striking due to the pregnancy is called morning sickness, but it can occur at any time of the day. Higher levels of hCG usually result in more nausea. But this symptom will go away by the 13 – 14 weeks of your pregnancy. Since the hCG does not rise significantly enough to create an imbalance, nausea would not set in by 4 DPO.

Changes in Breasts

The female reproductive hormones estrogen and progesterone influence the breasts just like they control ovaries. Increasing levels of progesterone affect the breasts. Hence, changes in the breast changes are appreciable during the initial days of pregnancy.

Your breast becomes more prominent, and your nipples and areola (the dark pigmented area around the nipples) also start to turn darker. Your breasts will start becoming more sensitive. They will be tender to touch. When the pregnancy progresses, these symptoms disappear. But by 4 DPO, since your ovum is not implanted, you will not have any significant changes in the hormonal levels. Subsequently, changes in breasts also might not become significant.

Food Cravings4 dpo

Usually, your preferences towards specific food change due to hormonal changes. You may start to crave certain foods, flavours, or smells. On the other hand, you might begin disliking or avoid certain food items or fragrances. Common food cravings are sweets, salty food, spicy food, citric food, chocolates, coffee, and ice cream.

Even though we do not have a clear explanation for this alteration, it may relate to the nutritional status. Pregnancy increases the demand for the nutrients like minerals and vitamins, subsequently resulting in the craving for specific foods. Meanwhile, the female reproductive hormones, namely estrogen, and progesterone, are linked to these cravings by influencing the nervous system.

The good news – that this may not stay for the whole duration of your pregnancy! But again, 4 DPO is not a period where you would start craving or avoiding.

Pregnancy Test at 4 DPO

The pregnancy test kits are the most common tool used by women to diagnose pregnancy. They detect the presence of hCG in the urine using antibodies. These test kits are available over the counter worldwide, with ‘over 99%’ of accuracy, claimed by the manufacturers. Since the pregnancy test kits’ sensitivity differs, always check the information that comes with the test kit.

How to Test?

Different test kits require different methods of testing the urine hCG; it is critical to go through the instructions that come with the kit thoroughly. Some test sticks would require you to pee on the test stick, while some need to be put in your urine that is collected in a cup or container.

How are the Results Shown?

Like the way you test, the way those strips show the result might differ between each kit. Few methods to show the result display colored lines (pink or blue), plus and minus signs, or changes in urine color. Some digital kits say pregnant or not pregnant and show you an estimated time since your conception in weeks.

The above information is related to the regular pregnancy checks and probably after 9DPO. The hormone hCG appears in the blood 9-10 days after conception and doubles daily to reach a steady level in 45 days. The urine hCG test depends on the concentration of hCG in your urine. Performing a trial in the early morning of your next period would be better to get a reliable result since your urine gets concentrated overnight.

Even though these home pregnancy kits give straightforward results, there is a possibility of getting false positives and false negatives. False-positive is nothing, but your kit would say you are pregnant, but in reality, you are not. Similarly, a false negative is when you are pregnant and your test kit does not show a positive.

These false positives and false negatives might be confusing, so visit your physician if at all you are in doubt. Read further to understand more about the false negative.

Is 4 DPO BFP Possible?

BFP, also known as big fat positive, a BFP by 4 DPO is highly unlikely. Firstly, remember the duration between the ovulation and 4 DPO is short of predicting the possibility of a pregnancy. Within these four days, the ovum might have been fertilized by the sperm and still on the move towards the uterus. Hence, the sequence of effects usually occurring after implantation in pregnancy is improbable.

Let’s do a recap to understand why it may be negative. In a regularly menstruating woman, after intercourse, the sperm fertilizes the ovum to form the embryo, and it implants in 6 – 12 days. It can even delay as long as 15 days. A particular hormone level, human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), produces a positive result while using the pregnancy kits. This is a hormone usually produced about 2 – 5 days following the implantation. Considering this time frame, detecting hCG in your blood or urine might differ. Hence, the pregnancy test on your 4 DPO will not be positive. Rather than giving up hope, you can hopefully wait for few more days or wait till you miss your next period and repeat the pregnancy test.

4 dpo

Even if it’s the most preferred 13 DPO and pregnant, you might not get a positive result in the urine hCG test with a home kit. That doesn’t mean that you are not pregnant. But, in 4 DPO tests, it is highly likely to have negative results since the implantation and related hormonal changes are not yet present. Hence BFP in 4 DPO is unlikely; however, having a negative pregnancy test does not mean there is no pregnancy for sure. Do not lose hope till you see a BFP at 13 DPO or get your pregnancy confirmed by your physician.

No Symptoms

Most of the time, you will not experience symptoms by 4 DPO. Menstrual cycles are unique for each woman. Similarly, the symptoms also differ in time and intensity. These different times explain the variation of pregnancy signs. Meanwhile, there are instances where no pregnancy symptoms are experienced even at 9, 12, or 13 DPO. It does not necessarily mean that you did not conceive. If you have irregular menstrual cycles, then the ovulation might have happened later than usual. Consequently, the symptoms also get delayed. Using a symptom log like a CareClinic app would be beneficial to track your symptoms.

Also, the symptoms you feel in pregnancy may not be present in another pregnancy. Hence, it is nothing surprising even if you do not experience any symptoms at all.

In conclusion, do not worry if you do not experience any of these symptoms. There may be chances of getting a positive result in urine hCG but not definitely by 4 DPO. Hence, do the pregnancy test at 13 DPO and repeat the test in a few days to confirm the outcome.

Despite the presence or absence of symptoms at 4 DPO, always go for a 13 DPO pregnancy test to confirm the status. Apart from all of these, if you have any concerns about your health, reach out to your physician. Especially when you experience unpleasant symptoms, please consult your physician.

4 DPO & CareClinic

It is merely impossible to keep everything stored in our memory. We will not be able to remember everything happening around us, to us, and within us. When time flies, we tend to forget things. Tracking your health is essential and valuable for everyone. Especially being a woman, your menstrual cycle is a necessary part of your health for various reasons. When it comes to pregnancy and expectations or planning a family, recording your menstruation is a must to achieve your goal of getting pregnant.

CareClinic is an all-in-one personal health app, provides numerous valuable features to help you maintain a personal health record. Create a self-care action plan, add medications, supplements, diet, physical activities, and therapies you receive. You can even set your own healthcare team that manages your health and pregnancy. Add your physician, obstetrician, registered nurse, and family members to keep them in the loop.

Diary Entry

The diary entry feature lets you make entries about your daily life. Use the app’s diary entry feature to track day-to-day activities or events you encounter. You would have realized how important monitoring your days to make sure about the pregnancy. 13 DPO might sound simple when we talk, but in reality, keeping days in memory is complex. Track your periods to learn the cycles, duration, and when you have increased chances of getting pregnant. You can read more about menstrual cycles and period tracking on our blog.

Symptom Tracker

The symptom tracker feature lets you add symptoms you are experiencing. You can start by tracking them even before 13DPO if you experience any of the symptoms mentioned above. Including pregnancy, if you have any medical conditions or medications, you can start tracking your symptoms before seeking medical attention and compare how well the therapy relieves you from symptoms after visiting the doctor’s office. This helps seek medical attention during pregnancy-related symptoms, which might lead to complications.

Pill Tracker & Reminders Feature

Never forget your medications – including your multivitamins and folate with the CareClinic app. Please have a look at our blog article on pill tracking.

Nutrition Tracking

CareClinic provides a nutrition tracker feature, which helps you maintain your diet logs. When you are pregnant, it is essential to keep tracking food to ensure adequate nutrition is taken for your baby’s wellbeing and yourself. Meanwhile, this nutrition tracker would help identify your cravings and make you take control of them. If you have a specific diet to change your food habit, you can follow your diet and reflect on helping you live a healthy life.

Activity Tracker

Use this feature to track all activities you involve. CareClinic’s activity tracker lets you identify any actions that worsen or relieves your moods and symptoms. You can figure out which activities help improve your symptoms and which don’t. If you suffer from non-pregnancy-specific symptoms like fatigue, you can identify them easily by reviewing your activities. You can look back to see if there are any correlations between your symptoms and any activity you may have participated in.

Therapy Records

Keep a record of therapies you may be receiving. For example, if you are seeing an obstetrician or even your family doctor, you can record all of your appointments so that you never forget something.

Reports Feature

Reports are another great feature in the CareClinic app. It can provide a lot of perception into your lifestyle change. It considers your logs in diary, nutrition, activities, symptoms, etc., and subsequently generates reports to show the association amid those entries. This connection would be helpful to learn more about yourself and your pregnancy-related changes.

4 DPO is a guide to check your pregnancy status. What is critical is you should always seek medical advice if you have any concerns about your pregnancy status, symptoms, or your pregnancy test itself. Using an all-inclusive holistic like the CareClinic app can help you lead a healthy pregnancy by getting into the habit of tracking and sticking with it.

Congrats Pippa!!

Siobhan, I am also in the same boat but a little ahead. This is my other post on netmums. It is not positive but just felt like sharing it with you. Hope u get ur BFP!!! FC for you...:)

My post -
I and dh have been ttc#2 for almost an year with no success . This cycle I am super confused and depressed
I had my last period on 18th feb'14, i have been temping and using digi opk.So, i am confident that i ovulated on 7th march'14. On 11th mar'14 (4dpo) late evening there was very light brown sticky cm only on wipe (sorry for tmi). I thought it was early IB but i started bleeding from the next day (5dpo) with some clots. The beeling was more than spotting but definitely less than my period as I used only a single pad a day. This continued till 14th Mar'14 (7dpo) and then it stopped. I usually have a 10 day luteal phase so my af was due today (11dpo). i tested and got bfn

I am planning to test again after a week and if its is still bfn i will book an appointment with my gp.

Thank you..
