Demystifying the term “Chemical Pregnancy”
Ever wondered why a pregnancy that ends early is labeled a “chemical pregnancy”? It does sound a bit peculiar, doesn’t it?
The story begins when your body kicks into gear, producing hormones that trigger a chemical reaction, revealing a positive pregnancy test. Remarkably, you caught this positive sign in the early days, possibly just after the fertilized egg, also known as the embryo, has implanted.
However, this chemical cascade occurs before your body has a chance to form a gestational sac in your uterus. When a miscarriage transpires during this interim stage, it earns the label “chemical pregnancy” because, lacking the sac, the pregnancy only registers at a chemical level. Hence, the term “chemical” comes into play.
