  27 Sep 2012

Introduction to the problem

Implantation cramping: symptoms and reasons Implantation Cramping, as the name suggests are the cramps, can only be felt by the ladies who are in the most early stages of conceiving. In other words, it is one of the earliest signs of pregnancy. The implantation cramps occur when the zygote or the fertilized egg starts its journey from Fallopian tubes , where the process of fertilization takes place, and starts moving towards the uterus.

Although these cramps are one of the earliest signs of the pregnancy but not every woman feel them during the process of fertilization.

It takes almost 10 to 12 days to complete the whole process and after that the cramps vanish in normal conditions. After that, during the whole pregnancy, the woman feels these types of cramps but they usually remain for only 2-3 days. If the condition persists, then it is highly recommended by the experts to consult with health specialists.

I spoke to my OBGYN because I started spotting on day 19. It is now day 27 and I am still spotting as well as having minor cramps that are alternating sides. The spotting did get a little heavier today compared to the previous. Should I seek medical attention or wait to see if it passes?Thank you

Hi, Sony. It is still possible that you may be pregnant. If you are having severe pain, you should see a doctor asap because this coul be a sign of an ectopic pegnancy.

Some people think that drinking coffee during pregnancy is very harmful. You can enjoy coffee in your pregnancy if you are addicted to it but you should not exceed from 200mg of caffeine in one day. In other words, you can drink one brewed coffee cup or 2 instant coffee cups in your pregnancy. Thing that you will need to consider is the amount of caffeine and you drink over 200mg of caffeine during your pregnancy, then there would be more chances of miscarriage or low weight of your baby.

Coffee isn't always bad for your fetus in moderation, but it does increase the severity of cramps. It causes muscle spasms - that's why coffee makes so many women have to defecate after drinking it. It's not just caffeinated coffee, it's something else in the bean that cause the spasms.
