Worried you might be pregnant? Let`s review some of the common signs before deciding if a pregnancy test is the next step.
Have you missed your period? The most common, first indication of pregnancy is a missed period, however, this may not necessarily mean you are pregnant.
Other early symptoms of pregnancy include:
- Difference in Menstruation or Spotting
- Implantation Bleeding (brown or pink spotting)
- Swollen or Tender Breasts
- Lower backache
- Fatigue or Tiredness
- Nausea/Morning Sickness (sickness can actually occur at any time of the day)
- Frequent Urination
- Darkening of Areolas
- Food Cravings or Aversions
It is important to understand that symptoms vary between women and even between pregnancies. While some experience symptoms early on, others may develop symptoms later in pregnancy or not at all.
If you still think you may be pregnant, or if you are sexually active and concerned about pregnancy, it is important to take a high quality medical test and to consult with a health care professional. To schedule your free appointment for pregnancy testing, click here.
