Am I Pregnant?

Wondering if you could be pregnant? The most common pregnancy symptoms include[1]:

  • A missed period
  • Frequent urination
  • Fatigue
  • Morning sickness (can include noon and night)
  • Sore, swollen breasts
  • Increased hunger, food cravings, and aversions
  • Bloating
  • Mood swings
  • Constipation

Pregnancy symptoms can vary from person to person and even from pregnancy to pregnancy.

How Early Do Pregnancy Symptoms Start?

It depends. Some people start to experience symptoms days after conception, while others don’t feel anything until weeks later[2].

When Should I Take a Pregnancy Test?

You can take a pregnancy test as soon as you’ve missed your period. However, taking a test too soon may give you a false negative. Your pregnancy hormones may be too low and the test cannot detect them and claims you’re not pregnant when you are. You may want to wait at least a week after you’ve missed your period to get a more accurate result[2].

However, you can’t rely on a pregnancy test alone. An easy way to know for sure that you’re pregnant is to receive an ultrasound!
