Interpretation of the reasons for “low fever” in early pregnancy.
After pregnancy, mothers found that their nervous systems became very sensitive.
When mothers have such a situation, they must learn to relax their feelings. Expectant mothers will also encounter this situation: they feel that their bodies are slightly warmer than usual but their body temperature is still within the normal range.
This is not an illusion. The body temperature will actually rise in the early stages of pregnancy, but it is not a fever. So don’t worry too much.
Why would such a phenomenon happen?
Reasons for “low fever” during the first trimester:
Generally, the normal body temperature of a person is 36 to 37 ° C, and the body temperature of a pregnant woman will increase in the early pregnancy.
One of the early symptoms of pregnancy is an increase in body temperature. The basal body temperature is about 36.9 ° C -37.2 ° C and will continue until the middle of pregnancy. This is mainly caused by hormonal changes.
The increase in body temperature during the first trimester is because, after ovulation, the follicles form the corpus luteum and secrete progesterone, and the progesterone can raise the body temperature. If the egg is fertilized and pregnant, the corpus luteum continues to secrete progesterone, so the body temperature has been maintained at a high level. This so-called “low increase in temperature” will not bring too much discomfort to expectant mothers, and mothers don’t have to worry too much.
Women’s body temperature will be stablized after pregnancy. If the body temperature changes, it will remain in the range of 36.9 ° C -37.2 ° C. If the body temperature rises and falls, there may be a hint of luteal mass. Lack of corpus luteum can lead to miscarriage or infertility. Special attention should be paid when the body temperature becomes high. Especially expectant mothers with a history of miscarriage should go to the hospital for examination and treatment.
