The Diagnostic Process

Based on your response to this question, which may indicate unknown chance of becoming pregnant, no chance of becoming pregnant, some chance of becoming pregnant, high chance of becoming pregnant or being pregnant, The Analyst™ will use differential diagnosis to consider possibilities such as:
Hormone Imbalance

Pregnancy can cause a significant hormonal imbalance.

Periodontal Disease - Gingivitis

Pregnant women with periodontal disease are statistically more likely to have a baby that is born prematurely, according to a study of more than 2,000 pregnant women.  This connection is not yet fully understood but may be due to underlying inflammation or infections.

Conversely, pregnancy and its related hormonal changes appear to worsen gum disease and tooth loss.  During pregnancy the body experiences hormonal changes that can affect many tissues, including the gums.  Gums can become sensitive and at times react strongly to the hormonal fluctuations, which may in turn increase the susceptibility to gum disease.

West Nile Virus

Pregnancy is a risk factor for developing a worse form of the disease.  It is possible for an infected mother to transmit the virus to her child via breast milk.
