Three to four days after implantation bleeding, the hCG hormone becomes present at a sufficiently high level to detect pregnancy using a home pregnancy test. Within two to three days after implantation bleeding, the pregnancy is detectable using a blood pregnancy test.

Around the same time as implantation bleeding or shortly after, a woman may notice some of the early signs of pregnancy, such as breast tenderness, fatigue and morning sickness, according to WebMD. Hormone levels change rapidly during pregnancy and sore, swollen and tingly breasts are a common early pregnancy symptom. In some women, the areola darkens in the early stages of pregnancy. About one week after conception, a feeling of tiredness is very common and continues for several weeks as her body adjusts to the pregnancy. Nausea and morning sickness do not affect all pregnant women, but when it does, it often begins shortly after implantation bleeding and the subsequent missed period. Many women also develop strong aversions or cravings for certain foods during the early stages of pregnancy. Other early pregnancy symptoms that can begin after implantation bleeding include constipation, frequent urination, mood swings, headaches and back pain.

    Are Omnitrition drops safe to use?

    A:

    Omnitrition drops used as part of the human chorionic gonadotropin diet are not considered safe. This is evidenced by the Food and Drug Administration's stance on them, which "has advised consumers to steer clear of over-the-counter weight-loss products that contain HCG," according to Mayo Clinic. HCG is safe to consume if prescribed by a doctor to treat fertility issues, but Omnitrition is utilized as part of a diet regimen that recommends substantially restricting calories.

    What is the HCG diet protocol?

    A:

    The original hCG diet, invented by London physician A.T.W. Simeons in the 1950s, limited food intake to 500 calories per day, banned the use of lotions and makeup, prohibited exercise and called for daily injections of human chorionic gonadotropin into the thigh. Modern hCG diets allow up to 800 calories per day, and may allow hCG in drop or pill form or add vitamins or supplements to it.
