Implantation Dip

When the implantation occurs, the temperature of the body may drop for s short period of time, and this problem is called implantation dip. Once the sperm and egg form unification, the problem we are talking about occurs. The uterus is a place where the zygote goes to, which happens when the fertilization ends. The zygote divides to multicellular blastocyst during this travel. Then, the endometrial lining is where these cysts bury into. The process we have just describes is named implantation, and it is accompanied by few changes of the body. The pregnancy can be detected if the implantation spotting is present, which is one of the mentioned changes. Also, the temperature of the body can drop during the process of implantation, and the name for this problem is implantation dip.


The menstrual cycle releases a lot of hormones, and in order to describe the implantation dip causes, we first have to give information about these changes. Ovulation is the name used for the period when ovum or egg is released, and this is done by the ovaries. Follicle releases an egg and once the luteinizing hormone is secreted. The estrogen causes stimulation, which further causes increased production of the LH via the hypothalamus. The follicles then become ripe due to the effect of the estrogen and this happens in the several initial days of the menstrual cycle. So, the body then reduces its temperature due to the presence of high amount of estrogen, which causes the mentioned effect. This happens in the normal life as well, not only when the woman is pregnant. The implantation dip has been tricking many women who have thought they were pregnant, but in fact, they were not. Progesterone is a hormone that is manufactured by the corpus luteum. The body temperature increase can occur due the effect of this hormone, but it can drop when the number of progesterone drops, which happens when a woman is not pregnant during the second luteal phrase. But pregnant condition manufactures more progesterone and this leads to the body temperature surge. So from this we can conclude that pregnancy is present only when implantation dip is followed by a temperature rise.


The chart of the regular pregnancy must be lead meticulously in order to detect the change. This needs to be done in order to find coveline temperature, and for this, the chart must be monitored for at least three months. Post ovulation phase can be detected by the coveline over the implantation dip. Cramping and nausea are some of the problems associated with the implantation dip. They are usually felt at the side like menstrual cramps. This condition is further confused by the problems it creates, which can be associated with other conditions such as early period or PMS.
