Hi Doctor!! I am trying to concieve and its just 5 days past my ovulation period. My stool is brown in colour since yesterday and I had loose motion today.

Hii mam,
These are not feature of early pregnancy.
Missed period with morning sickness are the earliest sign.
Loose motion may be due to Acute Gastroenteritis.
Drink plenty of fluid and take home made diet.
You may take Tab Metrogyl 400 Tds for 3-4 days.
Take rest and sleep well.
All the best.

Hi welcome to healthcaremagic Forum

you have just passed 5 days of ovulation., this doesn't indicate pregnancy.. Amenorrhea is the first sign of pregnancy.. UPT ( urine pregnancy test ) is the test done to detect pregnancy.. it is an antigen-antibody test.. it will be positive minimum 3 days after conception... finally you must confirm the pregnancy by USG scanning. there are many reasons for dark brownish stools.. but loose motion or brown motion is nor related to pregnancy..
