Are you wondering why you’ve been feeling sick lately? If you’ve recently had unprotected (or maybe even protected) sex and your body is telling you something is different, you could be pregnant.
Common Early Pregnancy Symptoms
There are several early signs of pregnancy, but every pregnancy is unique. Some women don’t experience symptoms for weeks or even months, while others feel every symptom from the beginning. The Mayo Clinic lists the following as some of the early signs of pregnancy:
- A missed period
- Tender, swollen breasts
- Nausea with or without vomiting
- Increased urination
Other symptoms they list include:
- Food aversions
- Light spotting or cramping
Many of these symptoms can also be related to other health issues. For instance, your monthly cycle can change if you’re stressed, have increased your exercise, or have a hormonal imbalance. Nausea could be the onset of the flu, and increased urination could be a urinary tract infection. It’s time to find out for sure.

It’s Good To Get A Second Opinion
Taking an at-home pregnancy test is perfectly fine, but you should confirm the results. Although at-home tests are reliable, one study found that up to 5 percent of pregnancy tests return results indicating a woman is not pregnant when she actually is.
For the best results, take a pregnancy test after your missed period. You also must follow the directions carefully, and manufacturers even suggest you take the test first thing in the morning when your urine is the most concentrated.
