If you’re wondering how to tell if you’re pregnant, you’re not alone. Women may have early pregnancy symptoms, but it is difficult to tell if they are signs of pregnancy because these symptoms could also be caused by other things.
Very Early Pregnancy Symptoms:
Many pregnant women have early pregnancy symptoms such as nausea and fatigue. However, some women have no symptoms at all, except for missing their period. For some women, their busy lifestyle means they’re not aware that their period is late, and they simply forget they didn’t get it.
If you’ve missed your period, or it’s late, and you’re experiencing morning sickness or nausea, it could be a sign that you’re pregnant.
Your breasts might be tender and seem to be enlarging. The brown part of your nipple (the areola) is also becoming darker and bigger.
You might notice your energy level is lower, and you’re feeling tired all the time.
Headaches are another early pregnancy symptom that can be caused by hormone changes.
Diagnosis of Pregnancy:
If you think you may be pregnant, it’s important to take a pregnancy test as soon as possible. Home pregnancy tests are very sensitive and accurate, and can be taken using a sample of urine from your first trip to the toilet in the morning. A positive result means you are pregnant, while a negative result may not be conclusive, especially if you performed the test incorrectly or tested your urine at a time other than first thing in the morning.
Other Early Pregnancy Advice:
It’s important to seek medical or midwifery advice if you think you might be pregnant, in order to confirm the pregnancy and discuss your plans.
If you don’t get your period within the next month, you should see a medical professional or midwife. This is because there may be an underlying medical condition.
Most pregnancies are unplanned.
Over 25% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage.
And, each year, over 25% of women choose to terminate their pregnancy.
