Wondering whether you’re pregnant can cause a range of overwhelming emotions. Whether you’re wondering because you’ve recently had unprotected sex or because you’ve been experiencing unusual symptoms, the symptoms can vary greatly from woman to woman and pregnancy to pregnancy. Some women don’t experience any pregnancy symptoms at all. However, if you’re experiencing any of the below symptoms, it might be time to take a pregnancy test.


Some common symptoms of pregnancy include:


  • Missed menstrual period
  • Sore and swollen breasts
  • Frequent urination
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Fatigue
  • Mood swings
  • Appetite changes
  • Headaches
  • Slight bleeding or spotting



These symptoms sound like me, does that mean I’m pregnant?

While some women report experiencing symptoms as early as two weeks following conception, there is not one symptom alone that guarantees pregnancy. The only way to know for sure whether you’re pregnant is to come in for lab-quality pregnancy testing.
