Signs of Pregnancy

The body changes in pregnancy leads to multiple signs and symptoms that often vary in degree of severity from one woman to another. The rising pregnancy hormone (estrogen) levels are responsible for most of the early symptoms while the later signs may result from certain other factors such as the growing uterus and the increased blood volume.

When do the signs of pregnancy first start?

The time for the beginning of possible pregnancy symptoms generally varies from one woman to another, depending on one’s age, medical history, genetic factors etc. However, most women start experiencing the early signs in the 3rd or 4th week of pregnancy with implantation bleeding or spotting (brown vaginal discharge) often being the initial sign. However, the missed period is usually the major symptom of pregnancy.

What are the earliest signs of a healthy pregnancy?

Following are the earliest physical signs, usually occurring within the first 2 to 4 weeks, even before you notice the missed period:

However, it is completely normal to have no noticeable signs at this stage. It is also possible to experience the above symptoms and yet have a negative home pregnancy test. In such cases, it is recommended to wait one week and do another test. Because sometimes, the symptoms may start too early for a HPT to detect the human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) hormone in the urine.

Other common early pregnancy signs

The above symptoms usually continue throughout the first trimester, sometimes even the whole of your pregnancy, often along with:

  • Mild to severe nausea and vomiting (morning sickness)
  • Headaches
  • Mood swings
  • Constipation or diarrhea
  • Dizziness and fainting
  • Frequent urination
  • Breast changes such as swelling and tenderness
  • Increase in your basal body temperature (low grade fever)
  • Food cravings and aversions
  • Increased sense of smell
  • Dysgeusia or metallic taste in the mouth
  • Leg cramps
  • Joint pain
  • Groin and pelvic pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Tiredness or feeling sleepy all the time
  • Increased heart rate
  • Dry mouth and excessive thirst
  • Indigestion
  • Heartburn and acid reflux
  • Milky white, pale yellowish or clear sticky cervical mucus
  • Abdominal pain
  • Back pain
  • Sore or itchy nipples
  • Feeling full all the time (mainly due to the increased blood supply to the uterus)
  • Excessive saliva production
  • Darkening areolas
  • Night sweats
  • Sneezing and stuffy or runny nose (Rhinitis of pregnancy)
  • Sore throat and flu like symptoms (many women think they are coming down with cold before finding out they are actually pregnant)
  • Alternative chills and hot flashes
  • Flatulence
  • Excessive gas and burping

Are there any other signs of pregnancy?

Here are some other common symptoms that can occur any time from the first month to the last few weeks of your third trimester:

  • Allergies and asthma
  • Changes in balance, especially in the later weeks (due to the growing uterus changing your center of gravity)
  • Dry, itchy skin (especially around the expanding belly, breasts and back)
  • Skin rashes or hives
  • Enlarged breasts (as your body prepares for breastfeeding)
  • Pica (craving for unusual or non edible items)
  • Bleeding gums
  • Nosebleeds
  • Weight gain
  • Migraines (especially in women with a history of the disorder)
  • Prominent veins (due to all the extra blood in your body)
  • Acne outbreak
  • Round ligament pain
  • Vision changes (due to the increased blood volume)
  • Swelling or edema (mainly of the hands and feet)
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Varicose veins of pregnancy
  • Anxiety, depression and unexplained crying
  • Melasma or mask of pregnancy (darkening of certain skin areas)
  • Dehydration
  • Bleeding during or after intercourse
  • Linea nigra (a dark line running down your belly)
  • Stress incontinence or leaking urine when sneezing or laughing (as the pregnancy hormone weakens the sphincter muscles that control urine release from bladder)
  • Increased hair growth (often on the face, abdomen and chest)
  • Changes in appetite
  • Sleep disturbances or insomnia
  • Green stool (rare)
  • Hiccups

Signs of twin pregnancy

The symptoms of a multiple pregnancy is usually the same as any singleton one. But, you are likely to experience them in a more severe form when carrying twins or triplets. The pregnancy hormone levels, responsible for most of the signs, are even higher in a multiple pregnancy while the elevation of blood volume is also greater to provide oxygen and nutrients to multiple fetuses. So, the symptoms of nausea, vomiting, appetite changes, stomach pain, frequent urination, stress, depression, tiredness and fatigue are likely to occur much earlier and are felt with more emphasis.

Pregnancy warning signs

After reading about all the common, uncommon and weird signs of pregnancy, you should also know about the warning signs that might indicate a serious complication. Here are a few danger signs that call for a visit to your doctor or midwife:

  • Severe, persistent abdominal pain with or without back ache
  • Severe bleeding (might indicate a miscarriage)
  • Nausea and vomiting severe enough to interfere with your daily life, lasting for over 24 hours
  • Persistent headache accompanied by symptoms like blurred vision, severe edema and chest pain (might indicate high blood pressure or preeclampsia)
  • Pain or burning sensation while urinating and dark or cloudy urine along with fever, nausea and vomiting (might indicate a UTI, kidney infection or yeast infection)
  • Severe itching of hands and feet, especially the palms and soles (might indicate a liver disorder)
  • Rapid weight gain (over 4 pounds a week) along with considerable swelling of the face, hands and feet
  • Sharp abdominal cramps along with lightheadedness, nausea and vomiting (might indicate a tubal or ectopic pregnancy)
  • More swelling in one leg that the other (unilateral swelling) along with pain in the calf and/or thigh (might indicate a blood clotting disorder)
  • Excessive hunger and thirst (might indicate gestational diabetes, especially in women with a history of the disorder)
  • Fever (over 102 °F) along with rashes and joint pain (might indicate serious infections that might lead to birth defects in the unborn baby)
  • Clear or pale yellowish thin discharge (might indicate amniotic fluid leakage)
  • Palpitations, difficulty breathing or coughing up blood
  • Decreased fetal movement (once the baby starts to move regularly)
  • Having one or more contractions every 10 minutes within the 37th week with or without pelvic pressure, watery vaginal discharge and a constant dull back pain (might indicate premature labor)

I cant find anything to explin my symptoms. I am on the dept shot so i cant be pregnant can i? Please someone help me. Im kinda flipping out.

        • Monica says:

          Yes it is definitely possible to be pregnant. My boss’s wife got pregnant with twins while on it!

        • Shayla says:

          I was one the dept shot for about 2 years and it can cause serious problems.

        • Nayla says:

          Okay so I’ve had protected sex with my bf of 3 years the day of my last ovulation day (unknowingly) the condom didn’t break or nothing… It was pretty protected, and I’m like not on birth control or anything so we rely on the condom, anyhow according to my [period] calendar that I’ve been checking frequently since that day my period was supposed to come yesterday (7/20/15), and its the next day and it still hasnt come (basically 1 day late) , instead I’m having like a clear-like discharge, I’ve also been having some really bad cramps for the past 3 days, also just started feeling kinda gassy, convinced that my period was coming and its not here. I really wanna know what this means, like am I pregnant? I read an article that said that a change in your regular routine could just throw it off and I have recently just went on vacation last weekend, would this be the reason my period is late or is it 100% possible that I’m pregnant and should take a test? I’m scared of pregnancy, like help pls

          • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

            Just because you have a couple of these symptoms, it does not mean that you are pregnant. It’s true that these symptoms are common in pregnancy, but they may result from many other things completely unrelated to pregnancy as well. And there may be plenty of reasons for your period to be a day late. So, just be patient and hang in there. Wait for your period for a couple of more days and if it does not come at all, or if you continue to have all these symptoms, then, consider a home pregnancy test. But for now, relax.

      2. Tina says:

        Yes it is possible! Id highly suggest you get a pregnancy test done. Then you should go see your doctor. I know women who have tried every available birth control and always wound up pregnant.
        Wish you all the best!

      3. Mary says:

        I have had severe allergies, nausea, joint pain in my knees, digestion problems, increased fluid discharge, what may have been implantation bleeding because I hadn’t had a period, my period was 15 days late, granted I just moved from the us to Japan. I gaining weight rapidly even though I do not eat much. I have shortness of breath and headaches. I have suspected I have been pregnant but both tests 13 days and 21 days were negative. I have developed worse runny nose and congestion. And my dry mouth has been constant but getting worse.

      4. maddie says:

        Go see a doctor. A pregnancy test is unlikely to show positive after only 3 weeks past your missed period. You could still be pregnant.

      5. josh says:

        Well my girlfriend has been experiencing some symptoms lately. Probably about 3 or 4 weeks ago we had sex and the condom had a tear in it. But she did have her period which ended last Saturday. But lately she has been having headaches frequently the last 5 days, and she has acne all over her body which just appeared out of nowhere. She also has had loss of appetite, and when she is hungry, shes always hungry. Shes also been a lot gasey too more than usual. Her feet have been hurting as much as her lower back area that hurts too. Could she be pregnant? Is it possible to have her last period and this one be missed. As far as we know no other condoms had tears so its hard to tell if she got pregnant two weeks ago or the first time we noticed the tear.

      6. jess says:

        Ok so Sep 25 I was ovulating & I had unprotected sex with my bf of 3 yrs I took plan b (no side effects btw) then again on the 7th (unprotected) i took another plan b the 8th. My period was on time Oct 9. It was normal. Ended Oct 12 and. The next day I had a really bad headache & over the top nausea.. eventually I ended up vomiting. the day after I encountered brown watery discharge like watery watery. I started to Google similar cases. Took a test & it came out negative. So I waited a week & during that week I had bad nausea & stomach pains my hips & lower back began to ache & I started to randomly get really tired & fall asleep out of no where. So that week ended today. I took a Test (clear blue) & it came out neg again. I’m am still experiencing all these symptoms. Any similar stories? If so, what was the outcome?

      7. Kristin says:

        For over a week I have been experiencing extreme tiredness to the point where all I want to do is sleep all the time. Lately I’ve been starting to get more symptoms such as back/neck pain, stomach cramps, frequent urination, and mood swings. I was on birth control but went off before I had unprotected sex and my periods are very irregular. Could I be pregnant or is this in my head?

      8. Lauren Vara says:

        I had pink spotting that lasted about a hour on the 17nth of october… since then I’ve had cramping non stop in my back and lower abdomen, VERY tender breasts, stuffy nose and ears, sore throat, cried over the silliest things (cried over a song on monday for no reason) white sticky discharge (no odor) short of breath, crazy vivid dreams, and very sensitive nose. Oh and feel full all the time now. Certain smells kinda turn me off but im not craving anything. And woke up queasy around 2 am. A small headache almost every day now…. trying not to get my hopes up bc I’ve had 2 negative pregnancy tests but I feel pregnant…. not sure when my next period is supposed to be but im fairly sure its supposed to start between the 26 and 28th… are these all positive signs that im pregnant? ?? Please let me know! My fiance and I want another bby so bad (I already have a almost 3 year old) 🙂

      10. Hlonz says:

        I have noticed some changes in my body like swore legs,foot cones,irritability,headaches and upset stomach. Last time I thought I was pregnant but I wasn’t that got me disappointed I don’t want to get my hopes up please help, Could I be pregnant?

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          It is not possible to determine whether or not you might be pregnant depending on the symptoms you are describing, as they may be resulting from a number of other factors. Did you miss your period this month? You might consider taking an OTC pregnancy test and see what it says.

      11. SoConfused says:

        I went off BC in Sept due to the side effects and had my regular period in October. On Sunday Nov 2nd while having intercourse with my boyfriend I noticed that at the end there was a little blood, so i assumed I was starting my period. I went to the bathroom wiped and put in a tampon. When I woke the next morning and removed it, there was just small amts of discharge. So I put on a panty line and went the rest of the day with no spotting. On Sept 4 & 5th the spotting had returned but was light. I woke up this morning and once again, NOTHING!!! Ive noticed since this has began that i’ve been having a mild headache, cramping in my lower belly,some pelvic pain on the right side and back/neck pain. I’ve also been eating everything in the house but no certain craving for anything but salt. Im not a water drinker by any means, but it seems like all i want to drink is water. Last weekend when this started I just sat down and cried over stupid crap, I dont understand. Now i’ve got this funny taste in my mouth no matter how much i brush my teeth, and About a week ago I thought i was coming down with a cold but it only seemed to last through the weekend, but i’ve kept the earache, sore throat, and sneezing. Lets not mention the horrible leg cramps at night, and excessive tiredness and dreams/sweating at night. I use to keep track of my periods through my BC or cycle on my phone but my phone messed up and i lost all my data and know that my period was the 11th of last mnth. So I dont know if there is just a delay or if theres a possibility i could be pregnant. When I make a comment about eating a lot or drinking a lot of water my boyfriend says you’re probably pregnant.HELP!!!!! Please someone!!!

      12. Lisa says:

        I have been experiencing pain in my back and abdomen,extremely sore breasts. I vomitted on saturday and have felt nauseous ever since. My ovulation period was between tuesday 28/10/14 to 31/10/14, i had unprotected sex on the tues, thurs and fri. i have been experiencing these worse than usual period symptoms since mon, which is unusual for me as its never this sore and never this early before my period. im due next fri, but im going to try a first response on monday. i have used these before and they are pretty good, although the cheap ones work just as well. (i have three children, 9, 10 and 11) i would love another baby but timing could be better. I dont think i am, i think i am just experiencing worse period symptoms as i get older (im 30) which it total pants! But I guess we all just have to wait and see 🙁 its crap when the symptoms of periods and pregnancy are so similar, sometimes it feels like our bodies just like to trick us!
        Good Luck and baby dust to those who are TTC 🙂

      13. miu says:

        Me and my boyfriend have an unprotected sex since the beginning of our relationship. In the past i used to think that i was pregnant cause i was craving for food and i always get dizzy but it was all because i took too much of iron vitamins. I stopped taking that vitamins. Last month my period came around the 12th and ended on the 17th and we had sex on the 18th. Last week,i had sore throat and flu like symptoms,and lately i was hungry all the time and i can smell something funny that no other can smell,i got nauseous sometimes,light headed and experienced lower back pain but only for an instant,got white discharged last week,feel like vomiting sometimes. Am i perhaps pregnant? My period this month will be on the 16th. This morning i woke up around 5,and my head hurts til now

      14. Denece says:

        i had a tubal 24 years ago and a ablation 4 years ago, but I am experiencing symptoms of nausea, veritigo, breast tenderness and heartburn..

        • brenda scarborough says:

I have had two miscarriages so not sure what’s going on as pregnancy test negative never been successfully pregnant could I still be pregnant even with the negative. Maybe it’s all in my head!

      16. gomez11 says:

        My period started 12days late then only lasted a day now I’m having pelvic cramps nausea diarrhea and headaches took two pregnancy test that were negative ….what could it be

      17. Stacey says:

        Okay so I got my period on Nov. 2 until Nov. 7. I had unprotected sex during my period and the sunday after it stopped. I then started lightly bleeding on 12th and that lasted until the 14th. I had unprotected sex again on tuesday Nov 18 and ever since last night I have had a horrible headache, back pain, keep getting random cramps almost like period cramps but not as bad. I have been so dizzy and keep feeling like im going to throw up, I am having hot flashes that last about 10-15mins at a time. My palms have been sweating which has never happened to me before and horrible heart burn. Is there anyway I could be pregnant or should should I go get tested for the flu or something.

      18. Kim says:

        I had a miscarriage in July, then had a normal period in August then nothing till October, so I’m not sure when my next period is due. Over the past two weeks I’ve had nausea without vomiting, sore knee joints, head aches, thick white discharge, constipation, mood swings and feeling increasingly tired and weight gain. I don’t want to get my hopes up and am worried, has anyone else had similar?

      19. Jen1234 says:

        my last period was 7 days late but when i came on it was normal, i am due to have my next period next week ut have been experiencing lots of pregnancy symptoms such as nausea, exhaustion, dizziness, increased sense of smell, backache, spots. I have had sex since, is it possible i could be pregnant?

      20. Margaret says:

        I have been on the pill for a few years. I have missed some days here and there. Well I have been seeing someone and we have unprotected sex all the time. One night I slept over we had sex and I forgot to take my pill that night , but the next night I took it. I haven’t yet gotten my period , but my body doesn’t feel right. I have had shortness of breath, cramping like feeling (no bleeding), nauseous (not always throwing up and at all different times of the day), smells make me nauseous too, I have been light headed, andI have been more fequently. Is there a chance I could be pregnant?

      21. Shreya says:

        Hi,
        I have missed my period, it’s been around 5 days since it has be delayed.. Since we are planning for a baby I took a pregnancy test on the fourth missed period date and it turned negative. I have the following symptoms, fatigue, lower back pain for a few days, slight craps in my abdomen, increased discharge, dry mouth, sore throat. I hv PCOD and I was on pills untill last month. Can I be pregnant by any chance? And when do I take my next pregnancy test?

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          It is normal for a pregnancy test to come negative in the initial weeks of pregnancy as the hCG hormone level may not be high enough to be detected. If you are pregnant, you should have a positive test in another week. Hope everything is going well.

      22. Samantha says:

        I have nausea, fatigue, bloating, breast tenderness, abdominal cramps, lower back pain, increased vaginal discharge, headaches/migraines, mood swings, changes in breast shape and size, night sweats, pelvic/groin pain, tiredness, heartburn and bleeding after intercourse. I did a pregnancy test about a month ago when i first started getting these symptoms and it came up negative. I am also on the implant have been since july.
        Could i be pregnant or am I just being silly. I’m starting to worry now 🙁

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          You may consider taking another pregnancy test as the one you took was a month ago, and it is normal for an hpt to come negative unless the hCG levels are high enough. Although it is pretty rare, it is not impossible to get pregnant after having an implant. There is nothing to worry about, contact your doctor in any case. Best of luck.

      23. lesly says:

        I had my tubes tied 5 years ago and I am now having constant lower back pain, peeing more often, my bowels have changed color and smell, my nose is in full overload, I only want peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with bbq chips, I am tired all the time, my emotions are EVERYWHERE, my stomach seems to be growing, but my hpt just came up negative. I don’t know what to do or think. I have five kids already and would like to have one more, but the negative result has really made me sad and confused. What do you think I should do?

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          For how long have you been having these symptoms? An hpt may come negative in the first couple of weeks as the hCG levels are often not high enough in the urine for the test to detect it. And it is pretty common to conceive even after having your tubes tied. But in any case, it is too early for your stomach to gorw, so that might just be bloating.

      24. Chane says:

        I started feeling my breast pains yesterday, im feeling very dizzy light headed today and also have headaches. I get heartaches when drinking coffee etc. Im only due to my period on the 5th of January…what can this be?

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Having these symptoms does not necessarily mean that you could be pregnant. Wait for your periods to come and if you miss it, then you can take a pregnancy test after a couple of more weeks.

      25. Sonu says:

        iv been feeling like vomiting nd I feel like I’m going to get my periods but its not happening,my tits have been painin,my breast hasn’t become sore yet.

      26. sadavia says:

        I tried AI in November and Af followed 14 days after.. But December came and I have no period. No symptoms and I wake up every morning with a sore throat and I have Molly white discharge but i’m not sure of I should call it allot.. And I took 4 negative hpt and more then 5positive ovulation tests

      27. sadavia says:

        Do you think I could be pregnant i’m very confused. Becuase AF is never this late

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          It is difficult to judge that only because you period is late. You can consider taking a home pregnancy test in a week or two, so the hCG levels can be high enough for you to get a positive result, if you are pregnant.

      28. Mommyof1 says:

        I had my last cycle nov 20 I had my emplanon removed dec 8 have not had a period have had some sickness,tired to where all I want to do is sleep, heartburn constantly,severe thirst.. I had got a home pregnancy test around dec 23 and it was negative my breast hurt every once in a while but nothing major… What should I do?

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          The symptoms could just be resulting from your body getting used to the changes in the hormone levels after the implanon removal. If you still think you might be pregnant, consider taking another hpt in two weeks, and take it right after you wake up in the morning as that’s when the hCG level is the highest.

      29. chasmith says:

        I got my period on Christmas and it only lasts three days and I had unprotected sex with my fiance on the 28 then again on the 30 31st and1st and in the morning on the 1st had mucus like Brown discharge and on the 2nd had pink spotting n every since then been tired nauseous cramping constipated. Metallic taste in my mouth stuffy nose and my two year old has been extra clingy n whining could I be pregnant???

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          It might be a little too early to start having such symptoms as the signs of pregnancy do not usually appear before the processes of implantation and conception complete, which take around 10-12 days and then another 5-6 days. You may consider taking a home pregnancy test after two weeks. Make sure to take it early in the morning after you get out of bed. This way you are more likely to get an accurate positive result.

      30. josh says:

        Okay so for the week now ive been feeling pregnant. Ive had a lot of symptoms that include not liking the taste of coffee and im a big coffee drinker. I have a inhanced sense of smell along with cravings. I was shakey and dizzy most of the day yesterday and felt like i was going to puke at a lot of times yesterday. Then last night came around and ive had some heartburn which i never have had heart burn until last night. My last period was the 11th of december and it lasted a couple days. Now my calender says my expected period isnt due till next week which is odd because my periods are usual around the 11th of the month. I do have irregular periods though. But as far as conceving im confused because we have had unprotected sex and protected many. We kind figured the calendar was messed up so we expected the peripd to happen this weekend so we took a pregnancy test today and it was negative. Is it too early or what? All the help would be great. My body temp all day was 99.1 or 99.3 at some points. I still cant stand coffee and the smell of ot and I’m a big drinker. I had some stomach aches earlier. My sense of smell is still increased. I lookes it up and if i concieved when i thought i would ofnid be 4 weeks since tuesday. Is it still early to test? Could i test this weekend?

      31. Toni Bradshaw says:

        My last period was in December i came on in time after i finished my period 7-8 days later i went to the toilet and as i wiped there was a light pink sort of spotting on the tissue. Since then i’ve had really bad stomach cramps non stop, sore throat runny nose and constant urinating but was constipated for about 3 days. Now i was due on my period on the 9th of january 2015 and my nipples are starting to get sore just by touching them slightly. My breasts do feel a little larger but not that much.Am i Pregnant or Is it just stressing?

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Are your periods always 7-8 days long? Although you do have some indicative symptoms, they cannot confirm if you are pregnant or not. Wait for another week and take a pregnancy test. Try to take it early in the morning, as soon as you get out of bed as that is when the hCG hormone levels are the highest, therefore increasing your chances of getting an accurate result.

      32. Tabatha says:

        I have had the essure procedure about 3 years ago nd for the past 3 weeks I have been experiencing nausea headache and mood swings along with abdominal pain nd back pain my cycle was last week nd it was abnormal could I be having a ectopic pregnancy

        • Tabatha says:

          Ok so I took a hot this morning and it came back negative but still am having same symptoms so I think I’m going to take a doctor appointment and see what is going on

          • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

            When was your last period? You could take another pregnancy test a couple of weeks later. Sometimes, the hCG hormone levels are not high enough for the hpt to detect, which may cause a false negative result. Waiting a week will let the hormone levels go higher so you get an accurate result.

      33. Robyn says:

        Okay so, i got my period twice in a month , the first time it lasted for 3 days and it was very light, two weeks later i got it again it lasted for 5 days and was heavy the whole time. Its been two weeks since then. And now im bloating, cramping, naustated, mood swings, and lower back pain like ima about to start my period all over again. What could this be?

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          If the second period you had was heavy for all the five days, then it is less likely to be the implantation bleeding as the latter is usually light spotting, lasting for just a couple of days. Did you notice passing any blood clots during this second period? There is nothing to worry about as it is not possible to ascertain anything right now as everyone responds differently to the changes occurring at this stage. At the same time, having the symptoms you are describing does not confirm you are pregnant. Just wait another week before getting a home pregnancy test to find out what all these symptoms might mean.

        my last period finished december 25th, i was supposedly ovulating jan 5th 2015. my boyfriend and i had unprotected sex, and he came in me (sorry tmi). im supposed to get my period jan 19th 2015, but im experiencing bad lower back pains, my breasts are swollen and tender, nipples arent that sore. im having mild cramping no blood and milky white discharge, also having really bad acne, and feel so bloated. went to the hospital the last week around the 10th pregnancy test was negative. i had an ectopic pregnancy in 2011, i wasnt able to get pregnant ever since then, could this be it? someone help

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          It is probably a bit too early to get a positive hpt result as you have not even missed a period yet. Just wait for a couple of weeks and then get another hpt. Also, try not to worry too much as it is still quite early to know anything for sure.

          • shana says:

            is it possible to get your period but still be pregnant?

            • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

              Are you having a regular period this month? Is it as heavy as usual, lasting for as long as it does every month? Sometimes, the implantation bleeding may be heavy enough for you to mistake it for period. But again, it may be you regular period as there is no sure way to know that you are pregnant yet. Wait for another week and then try to take another hpt. Just be patient and hang in there.

      35. JIll says:

        Hey, Ive been blacking out for about a week and light headed all the time, im really bloated and feel full an my lower abdomen is hard. MY back is sore, i pee all the time, im having toilet troubles, i keep crying for no reason and my mood swings are worse than usual. my heart is beating at a thousand miles an hour and i have really bad chest pain. ive also been experiencing the hiccups and my migraines are even worse than usual.

        I took 2 hpts the other day, 1. came back negative though the negative line was really faint though the control was bold the second one had a line that went away and me and my boyfriend swear we could see the faintest line but it could be in our head..

        i lost an angel 2 years ago so this time im too scared to make a subconscious judgement.. any opinions??

        • JIll says:

          also experiencing higher body temps and night sweats & increased cf

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          You could have waited a week before taking the second hpt instead of taking them back to back, because sometimes, the test may give a false negative result as the hCG levels are not high enough to be detected. Waiting for a week would make sure the hormone levels are higher so you get an accurate result. Also, it might be a good idea to contact your doctor once since you have a history of a miscarriage.

        I need your help…I had my lat period on December 3-9. It started out really light for 3 days, like watery light pink, then on saturday bleed heavy for like an hour then tapered to Brown watery discharge. I had unprotected sex on the 14th of December. Then two weeks later started getting really nauseous, headaches, lower back pain, and a little dull aching in my lower abdomen and bad insomnia. My period was supposed to start on January 4th. I am now 15 days late, extreme fatigue, frequent urination, headaches, lower back pain, nauseous, sore tingling breasts, and changes in size of breasts and areolas are darker. I’ve taken several pregnancy tests ALL negative (different brands and blue and pink dye). I don’t know what could be causing this….I’m not stressed out, I’m not getting myself worried, but this is the latest my period has ever been. I’m on day 46 of my cycle. What should I do?

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          There is nothing to worry about as it is quite common to get a negative hpt result at this stage. Wait for 2 more weeks and get another one, and in the meantime, eat healthy. You could also consider contacting your doctor to get a blood test, which can detect a pregnancy by measuring the hCG hormone levels in your blood.

      37. melci says:

        my period was supposed to come on 13th this month i have missed. my last period was on 18th december the very day i started using pills which i damped after four days as they were making my migraines worse. on the 6th day i started spotting and it continued for two weeks . my cycle lasts for 26 days. is it possible that am pregnant?

      38. pregnant says:

        In order to determine the ovulation date, you can just count 14 days from the first day, if you have regular
        28-day cycle. Timing intercourse during this moment is also the simplest and fastest way to get pregnant as
        you’re certain that healthful sperm are ready to meet with a healthy egg
        for productive conception. Sex chromosomes determine
        the sex of an individual.

      39. Asia says:

        I have Nausea sore and itchy boobs and a sore throat don’t have a appetite I had bleeding but it was a light reddish pinkish and a brown when I wiped then I took two pregnancy test it said negative with a faint positive line but the line was side ways when it was suppose to go up and down help me please!!!!!

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Your symptoms might indicate a pregnancy as the reddish pink spotting you had could be the implantation bleeding. Sometimes, the hpt may come negative for a low hCG hormone level, but it does not mean it’s not there. Have you missed a period yet? Wait for a couple of weeks before getting another hpt or you could also go to your doctor for a blood test to find out if this is it.

      40. Autumn says:

        Hi I have been experiencing some symptoms first I can smell all the nasty stuff.. Sitting in my living room and I can smell the food in my fridge rotting ugh…. I can smell dirty diapers in the Drs office when no kids or adults are around….I’ve been nauseous without throwing up some days I’m starving and eating everything but then I can’t eat anything cause it doesn’t settle well… I had severe sore breasts for about a week and now they are just tender… I’ve been going to the bathroom more then normal. Happy ine minute crying at the littlest things, then angry then back to happy lol. My joints hurt a lil bit feel like I need to pop my neck or fingers all the time.. I took a test once I started showing symptoms and it came up negative which I know can happen cause I haven’t missed a period but I got it on the 22 and it’s gone on the 24 like completely!!!! Could I be pregnant?? Is there a chance or am I just imagining

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Have you tried taking another home pregnancy test? There is no way of ascertaining if you are pregnant or not just from these symptoms, although you do seem to have some of the most common early signs. You can also go to your doctor’s chamber for a blood test, which is the best way to be sure at this stage.

      41. brandi M says:

        I had my period on November 4, 2015 (only constant after 2nd child)since July 2014; and then my period started back up on December 17, 2015, but was regular period from when I was a teenager[always had irregular periods] and lasted 5 days. January 12 &13 had 2 drops of spotting light pinkish red blood for both days and have not had a period since. I have noticed being tired more, craving jalapenos, been thirsty more lately. Belly button itches like crazy and palms too. Been cooking with lots of vegetables for past 3 weeks. Took store bought [dollar store] pregnancy test on january 15-thursday- was posotive. went to doctor on 19 and test was negative and had an ultra sound that found nothing. had HCG blood pannel that showed MPV at 13 fl and test is 7-10 fl. Going back tomorrow for a blood preg test. AM I PREGNANT?………….

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Home pregnancy tests do not usually give a false positive result as their function involves detecting the hCG hormone in urine, which is not present at all unless you are pregnant. Ultrasounds do not usually detect anything at such an early stage, so it is okay if you cannot see anything on a USG.

      42. Lyn says:

        My last period was last Nov. 20, 2014. until now i haven;t have my period. My husband and I used condoms but not sure if it leaked. Been experiencing little bit nauseous, sleepy and tired, cramps, heartburn and has clear white discharge. Is it ok to have a home pregnancy now, can it already be detected if I’m pregnant or not…

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Yes, it should be okay to take a home pregnancy test now as it has been over two months since you had your period, so the hCG levels should be high enough to be detected. Make sure to take the test the first thing in the morning after you get out of bed as this is when the hCG concentration is highest in the urine. Best of luck 🙂

      43. Toni says:

        Hope rhis doesn’t sound weird as I have four kids. I have had an IUD for almost five years now. My periods have been pretty regular, at least in the sense that I know what to expect and the timeframe to expect it. About four months ago I started mostly just spotting except for a day at the time of my MS (usually pretty heavy for several days). This last month I ran to the restroom so often. I kept asking my friend if she smelled certain things last week (she couldn’t). I have been waking up sweating several nights. I’m 31 yrs old. Going to take a test when I get up, but wanted to see if I could get anyones opinion on if they think I could be expecting or not before I take the test.

        i had my period on 11th of January,then i traveled to see my husband and we had sex 21, 22, 23, 25, 27, and 29th then 1st and 2nd of February. right now i am feeling dizzy, moody, having headache, back pain, breast pain that i cant even lie flat facing the bed, am having cramp in my hands and leg with deep cramping pain on the right side of my reproductive organ. please what do u suggest because am seriously looking for another child since we had our first child over 5 years ago. But he still feel like having more sex now but am afraid it may cause my period to come. please what do u advice.

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Having sex is not likely to hurt your baby at this stage, if you are actually pregnant. so, don’t worry too much. Wait for a few weeks before taking a pregnancy test so the hCG levels are high enough to be detected by the test.

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Consider taking another pregnancy test, as it is common to get a false negative if the hCG hormone levels are not high enough to be detected by the hpt. You can also get a blood test to find out if you are pregnant. Although most of your symptoms are common in early pregnancy, you cannot be sure until you get a positive result. Best of luck

      49. Anna says:

        HI Everyone, I had unprotected x during my fertile days its been 5 days that I am feeling very tired/sleepy while working at office, making food and even taking shower, nauseous, tender breast with sensitive nipple if touches. I have already lilttle bumpy stomach which looks I am already pregnant and now after these all I am feeling it is getting very steady. I am trying for baby since 2 months and dont know what it should be.. Can you please suggest me something.. ?

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          As far as the bump goes, it is more likely to have been caused by gas as it is too early to have a baby bump. Although some of your symptoms are common in early pregnancy, it is not possible to be sure until you take a home pregnancy test. Just wait a couple of weeks before taking an hpt for a better chance of getting accurate results.

      50. Langeta says:

        Hi, my menstrual cycle usual accurate. However, I am 4 days late, which is highly unusual. I have never experienced irregular periods ever! Since my L.M.P (last menstrual period), which was January 0 6th. I have been noticing frequent white discharges. I dont have no odor, nor irritations. So i know it’s not an std or infection, Also I am currently experience uncontrollable fatigue, as well as frequeny urination. I haven’t took a pregnancy test as yet, due to the fact that it is still too early, also I haven’t seen any implantation bleeding (spotting). Could this possibly means that I may be pregnant? I need answers please.

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          All these symptoms might indicate that you are pregnant, but it is not possible to be sure until you have a positive hpt. It may just be that your period is a bit late. Wait for a few days to see if your period or the implantation spotting comes. And as you said, it is too early for a pregnancy test, so wait for a couple of weeks before taking one. In the meantime, don’t forget to eat healthy.

      51. Lindi says:

        Hi, I need answers. I’ve missed my period for the second month, I’m vomiting sometimes, get nausea quickly. I vomit, aand then nothing wants to come out to. Only late. Megraines. If I drink pills for that, after few minutes I get cramps on my stomach. My breast are growng daily, I’m putting on weight. Have a red, ichy rash around my mouth. I feel ploated, and gasy. Get n discharge some days. And I’m moody, some meats I can’t eat. Tastes bad… Home test said negative both months. Can someone give me advice?

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Well, if home pregnancy tests are not working for you then consider getting a blood test to find out what is happening. Contact your doctor or the nearby clinic and they can help you. Blood test is the best way to confirm pregnancy at an early stage as the baby is still too small to be detected by an ultrasound.

      53. Natalie says:

        I am TTC. My lmp was 1/7 and was normal. On 1/27 I noticed some brownish pink spotting when I wiped and have had cramping (mostly at night), sore breasts, loss of appetite and headaches the last week or two. I am now a week late and had a negative HPT this morning. Am I pregnant? When should I call my doctor?

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          It is impossible to say if you are pregnant or not just by reading about a few symptoms. However, it is totally normal to have a false negative hpt at this stage as the hCG levels are often too low to be detected, but it does not mean that it is not present. Take another pregnancy test and see what it says. You don’t have to call your doctor till you are absolutely certain of your pregnancy.

      54. Brooke^ says:

        Hii there 🙂

        My names Brooke and I’m 20 ! my period is usually on time and if not then only early or late by a couple of days. I a now late by 5 days. Im not bloated or feel like I’m going to get my period as i have very bad mentrual cramps that sometimes leave me on the floor crying. I do have frequent urination and swollen / sore breasts and fatigue. Ive taken 2 HPT one on the 4th day of my missed period in the evening and one in the morning of the 5th day of my late period. Could i still be pregnant ?

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          It is very common to have a false negative hpt in early pregnancy as the hCG levels are often too low to be detected by the test. So, yes you may still be pregnant despite the negative results. However, just having those symptoms do not mean that you must be pregnant as there are many other factors that may be causing them. So, unless you have already had your period, wait for a couple of weeks to get another hpt.

Thank you and godbless

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          You certainly have many of the common signs of pregnancy, but that is not enough to ascertain that you are pregnant. You may have conceived on any of those dates and in any case, it would be too early to get anything on an ultrasound, even if you are pregnant. Do you mean a blood test by the pregnancy test or did you just have a home pregnancy test? Consider taking another hpt if you have not already as the hCG levels in urine should now be high enough to be detected by the test.

        lately ive been feeling disgusted and have some heart burn. I also have been having small abdominal cramps, and increase of vaginal discharge! ive never ever really had discharge like this much, especially not everyday! im also tired and I keep waking up in the middle of the night could I be pregnant?? also I last got my period on January 27, I had sex with my boyfriend the next day my period came and I though he came in me but he said no and we did use a condom but I had no doubt I saw his sperm(I think it broke). well the next week(feb8) he fully came in me and I took Plan b 60 hours after ejaculation but before I took it I was already nauseous and tired and cramping, and I had a lot of white discharge. I also had a severe cramp! a few hours before I took it it lasted about 15 minutes straight after my run. I saw that people said it was toearly for symptoms but other people felt them like this too. my period is very regular and according to my ovulation calculator those were my most fertile day , the day my boyfriend came in me (feb 8) Anyways I took the pill but I feel normal but disgusted every now and then also im burping more than usual and am kind of gassy, am I pregnant?? I really want to know contact me at my email please @[email protected] thank youuu

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Have you taken a home pregnancy test yet? It could help you find out for sure if you are pregnant. You may also consider a blood test in case the hpt fails to confirm things.

      58. Alecia says:

        Well my nipple pain alot and heavy clear discharge could i be pregnant and my period did nt come for two months

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          If it has been 2 months then the hCG levels must be high enough for a pt. Have you taken a home pregnancy test? Because you have not mentioned it in your comment. Are you having any other symptoms? Although it is completely normal not to have the symptoms in early pregnancy, the ones you have mentioned here may be resulting from something unrelated to pregnancy. Keep your fingers crossed and take a pregnancy test.

      59. Tasha says:

        I am now 33 days late. My periods have never been normal but it’s usually early or late by 2 or 3 days. Had unprotected sex with my husband in early December but took a plan b and got my period the next week. 7 days as usual. That was December 17. Here it is mid February and nothing. Tests come out negative. I had white discharge every day for about two weeks. It stopped and I got acne that will not go away. I never get pimples. I have slight cramping in the mornings and it feels like my period is about to come but nothing happens. I have been a bit more gassy than normal. I have had acid reflux all day for the past two days. I am completely confused.

        • Tasha says:

          I did have one day of very light bleeding. It was brownish at first and then pink. It was actually the day that my period was due on January 18th.

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Although you do have some pretty common signs of pregnancy, it is not possible to ascertain that you are pregnant from these symptoms alone. It is pretty normal to have a false negative pregnancy test at the early stage. Some women get false negative hpts even when they are months along. You can take a blood test to confirm things instead of just considering these symptoms.

        I have been having early pregnancy sypthombut all my tests are negative but it was like that with my daughter I didn’t find out I was pregnant in till I was four months I had to get a blood test done so could I be pregnant are is it in my head

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Well, it is really difficult to say anything like this, especially since you are saying that it has happened to you before. you already know what it feels like to be pregnant, so you may be the best judge at this stage. You can consider taking a blood test again, as you did for your daughter.

      61. Kayleigh says:

        My periods are never on time and in fact I’ve only started having periods every month for the last 6 months. I stopped taking contraceptive pill in August 2013. I had my first child April 2010 at the age of 20. although there is family history of fertility problems.
        My last period was middle of jan 2015. And for the last 2/3 days I’ve been experiencing lower stomach ache mainly centre of my lower stomach just above my groin area with occasional stabbing sensation. I’ve had a little diarrhoea, can’t sleep but feel tired and weak and if I stand up to quick I feel dizzy. My lower stomach feels quite tender too.
        I done one test but said negative but where my periods are so irregular I’m not sure if it’s just a case of hormone not strong enough to b detected or if something more serious is wrong please help!

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Judging from the symptoms, you could be pregnant. But it is not possible to be sure just from a bunch of signs; as you said, they could be resulting from something completely unrelated, not necessarily anything serious though. You may consider a blood test to find out what is going on as it is the best way to confirm pregnancy during the early months.

        am 2 months pregnant yesterday late about 20:55 sticky brownish discharge comes what does that mean if someone can help me please.

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Any kind of abnormal discharge in pregnancy is a cause of concern, however, it does not necessarily mean that something must be wrong. Are you having any other symptoms, such as any abnormal pain or cramping and any irritation during urination? Also, keep track of the discharge to see if it is increasing or continuing for long periods. But, make sure not to worry too much as stress may be harmful for your baby as well.

      63. Jen says:

        My period is usually every 24/25 days. This month it was late by 4 days. Thought my period was here, mild cramping very light to start then brown dark blood and discharge, only one pad actually was full of darker brown blood, next day and day after, nothing except when I wiped after using the bathroom, light pink occasional red spots but mostly brown, no smell, no menstrual smell either, like what I see/smell with heavy periods. Normally it’s pain from hell and bleeding like a stuck pig..but this time no. Barely even 2 days of a scant period if it could be called that, and now Im constantly hungry, have a perpetual dull headache, and constantly tired, can rink cups of coffee and still feel like I could use a long nap. I took a hpt about 2 days ago and it was negative. I have a requisition for blood work for next week. Only thing that kinda helps the hunger is cheese and mayo sandwiches ( but hungry again within an hour of eating it), when I eat healthier items like bananas or homemade black bean soup (all vegetarian) I feel like I’m eating nothing; the hunger pangs doesnt even go away! Is there anyone who has experienced this an finally got a positive pregnancy test after 2-3 months of negatives? Is it too early for a positive test? help! Sincerely, Hungry & Tired Jen lol

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          It is not impossible to get a negative hpt even when you are 3-4 months along in your pregnancy, so don’t let that put you off. Judging from the symptoms you are describing, it does sound like you could be pregnant! Have you consulted a doctor yet? Getting a blood test can help you find out for sure what is going on. Best of luck.

          Please I need ur response please!

          • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

            Having such signs alone does not indicate that you are pregnant, as such symptoms may also result from some other health issues. It may also be a bit too early to have a positive hpt as the hCG hormone levels in the urine may not be high enough to be detected. You could have waited a few more weeks before getting a blood test though. If you still have not had your period, then consider taking another hpt in another week. Also, keep track of the symptoms to see if they are changing or worsening.

      67. joanne says:

        I have been having severe cramps for the past few days feeling constantly sick breasts are sore on and off I am totally exhausted but I only had unprotected sex 8 days ago I don’t know when my period is due as I take the mini pill can anyone help could I be pregnant? When can I test???

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Have you taken a pregnancy test yet? It is really early to determine anything as eight days is too early to start having such symptoms (as you mentioned in your question). Did you notice any spotting or bleeding that could indicate implantation? You could definitely be pregnant, but you need to take a blood test or hpt to confirm.

      68. Tabitha says:

        think i’m losing my mind here… been on the mirena IUD for a year and after a few months my periods stopped. had unprotected sex on the 28th of feb, few days ago I started noticing a lot things going on with my body. pelvic pain and constant cramping, back pain, tingling and tender breasts, slight nausea at night, increase in headaches (haven’t had one in over a year) feel tired a bit. I took a home pregnancy test which came back negative.???? I have a 3year old so I know what its like to be pregnant and it seems so similar. could I be pregnant but testing too early or is my body just being weird????

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Maybe it is too early to take a pregnancy test as the hormone levels are probably still too low to be detected. Since you have had a previous pregnancy, you would know how it feels to be pregnant. So, just wait a couple of weeks before taking another hpt to have a better chance of getting an accurate result.

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          It is too early to make any presumptions from the symptoms. Even if you are pregnant, it cannot have been more than two weeks since you conceived; so the hCG levels are too low to be detected by a pregnancy test. Wait for a couple of weeks before taking another hpt. In the meantime, try to cope with the symptoms and avoid any medicines that may be harmful.

      71. Kendall15 says:

        I was on the shot around March of last year. I had a period last month around the 9th, on the 13th me & my boyfriend had sex. Every since i have been feeling nauseous, been more tired than usual, frequent urination, dry mouth, increased appetite, dry itchy skin, thick yellowish white mucus, headaches, dizziness/lightheadedness/ and strange dreams. I took two test last week and they both came out negative. I still havent came on this month, Could I be pregnant?

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Wait a few more days to make sure if you really missed your period or is it just late. Do you usually get them on the same date? In any case, it may be too early to get a positive pregnancy test as the hormone levels are often too low at this stage. Wait for a couple of weeks before taking another hpt and see what it says. All the best.

          • Kendall15 says:

            I am now a week late for my period. Im never more than a week late ! When would be a good time to take another home pregnancy test ?

      72. Bellsa says:

        My DH and I have been trying for 7 months. My last period start was Feb 26 (2015) and my cycle is usually 30 days long. I’ve been having acid reflux for the last week. My DH always comments how much I sleep typically.. but lately I’ve felt totally wiped out. I had some slight cramping last weekend. I took two home pregnancy tests : 1 last week Thrs and one today. Both negative. I’m not supposed to get my period until this Friday (Feb 27). But could I be pregnant? So frustrating each month finding out I’m not pregnant.

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          I understand how difficult it must be to wait patiently at such a time. But, the truth is it is too early to find out for sure whether or not you may be pregnant. You have not even missed a period yet. Even if you are pregnant, the hCG levels must be too low to be detected by a home pregnancy test. Stay calm and wait for your period. If it does not come, then wait for another couple of weeks to take another hpt. In the meantime, keep track of all the symptoms you are having.

      73. Bree says:

        It has been 89 days since the first day of my last period. In January, about two weeks after my period, I had light brown/pink spotting for about three days. In February, it was pink for three; this month, almost three weeks ago, it was the same thing. My nipples have been sore for about a week now and I have been much more exhausted than usual. I am going to the doctor Monday, but at this point, would a home pregnancy test be accurate since it has been basically three months with no period? I took two and they both came back positive.

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          If you already have two positive home pregnancy tests, you must be pregnant. It is not possible to get a false positive on an hpt as its function is based on detecting the hCG hormone in your urine. Now, the hCG hormone cannot be present in your system unless you are pregnant. Congratulations and good luck for your first checkup.

      74. Zoe says:

        Hello, I have 28 of those symptoms yet I also have polycystic ovaries is there a chance I could still be pregnant? Help please.

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          It is possible to get pregnant and give birth to a healthy baby even when you have PCOS. However, don’t just rely on the symptoms as they may be resulting from something entirely different. Take a home pregnancy test or consult your doctor to make sure. In any case, your pregnancy will be considered a high-risk one, requiring close monitoring from your ob-gyn.

      75. Kourtney says:

        Hi, I have the bc implant in my arm, it has been great but then about two months ago I started bleeding and it didn’t stop for 4 weeks. Now since then I have been feeling bloated to the extreme, pelvic cramps, nausea, fever, and I am tired all the time. I have taken 2 pregnancy test and they are negative. It is getting so uncomfortable that I have been missing work. Has anyone else had these symptoms or offer any advice.

      76. kyra says:

        hey is it possible to get pregnant while being on the jadelle (implant rods that go in your arm) ? i was told it was 99.9% effective. ive had it in for almost 2years now with out a problem but the last week or so ive been experiencing alot of pregnancy symptoms tierdness tender swollen boobs a rash has appeared on my face, abdominal cramps leg cramps headaches feeling queezy the list goes on. i am yet to do a test as ive heard the rod interferres or masks the pregnancy hormone. not sure if i should go to my doctor, dont want to look silly if its all in my head.

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Although very unlikely, it is not entirely impossible to be pregnant when on BC implants. So, it would actually be wise to go to your doctor to find out what is happening. You may even have to get it removed in case you are really pregnant.

      77. Gina says:

        My Mirena was removed on February 13, 2015. About three days later I started lightly bleeding that lasted three to four days. At the end of the month to beginning of March I had a very abnormal period. It was shorter and different than my usual cycle. Now I’ve been having a lot of bloating, fatigue, some abdominal pain, and nausea especially in the early morning. Also having a small fever. Could I be pregnant or is my cycle messed up from previously having the IUD?

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Having these symptoms does not confirm you are pregnant as they could be occurring due to the removal of your birth control device. Your hormone levels are changing and becoming normal since you removed the Mirena. So, all you can do is wait to see if the symptoms go away after a few days. If you continue to have the signs, then consider taking a home pregnancy test after a couple of weeks.

      78. Leah says:

        I’ve been having extreme difficulty getting prego for past 2 years +. Every time I start to think I may be, I take a test and then its negative and literally the next day, I start my cycle. I started a different hormone therapy and I ovulated for the first time in a while (ovarian cysts pretty much every month). We took advantage of the situation. Now, this week I’m due for my cycle in a few days, but I’m just feeling OFF. I slept a long time but feel exhausted, I want to throw my hubby across the room if he even almosts touches my breasts (EXTREMELY sore), I’m cramping but its not in the same location it moves from side to side and in the center low, I feel freezing at night but I sweat through my clothes and my hubby’s, been extra gassy lately, either constipated or pooping out my intestines it feels like, my joints are crazy achey, back hurts (already have chronic back pain though), feel full but hungry, been eating cereal, bananas (a lot of bananas) and chocolate Hershey bars, and I just feel so weak and fatigued.

        I don’t want to jinx it by taking a test though…What do you think? Can it actually be happening or am I just hoping too much?

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Don’t take a pregnancy test right now as it is probably too early to get a positive result anyway. Just wait to see if you miss your period and if you do, take the test after two more weeks. In the meantime, keep track of the symptoms you are having and take care of yourself. All the best.

      79. vichitra says:

        Hi,
        I have irregular periods. I had my periods on 21st march after 50 days from my previous one and it was over. At the end of my period, we had sex since i heard that irregular periods women had chance to get pregnant if they have sex at end of the period. Now I had mild lower abdominal pain frequently, Some pains in my feet also… I want to know, Is it a sign of early pregnancy.. or something else. I hope this is too early to go for pregnancy test.. please suggest on this. I am expecting eagerly as Already I got miscarriage 8 months back..

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Having a couple of symptoms is not enough to confirm pregnancy, even though such symptoms are common in early pregnancy. Wait for two more weeks and then consider taking a home pregnancy test. Sorry for your loss and all the best.

      80. sukanya says:

        I am already 11dpo. I had some cramps like pain on and off these days..it was not too intense.then stinging pains on left and right nipple now and then not consistent. .also constipated and gassy…all the time..feeling like eating and eating as if my tongue is not retaining the taste of food..

        Could I be pregnant? my period is due by next week. .how soon can I test?

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Wait to see if your period comes on time or not. All these symptoms could be resulting from something else. Just wait for a couple of weeks before taking a pregnancy test so your hCG hormone levels can be high enough to be detected by the test.

      81. htylenda12 says:

        Hello, currently I am experiencing breast swelling, mood swings, on and off nausea, frequent urination, lower back pain, acne and some times headaches. My husband and I had sex on March 15 and the condom fell off and he came inside of me. We had protected sex on the 16th. I ovulated on March 26th and we had sex, again the condom fell off and he pulled out. I’m 6 days from my expected period. We have one child and weren’t trying for another but will welcome it with open arms. Am I pregnant or is it just my period coming?

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          It is quite difficult to say at this stage whether you are pregnant or if these symptoms are caused by your coming period or something else entirely. You have not even missed a period yet, so taking a home pregnancy test may not be helpful. Just hang in there and see if your period comes at the regular time. Keep track of your symptoms. And if you miss your period, consider taking a pregnancy test after a couple of weeks.

      82. Angelina says:

        Hi there. Had my last period on 2 March 2015 for 5 days as usual. Then all of a sudden I started bleeding on 9 March for a further 4 days. Almost as much as a period. Although my cycles are irregular, I never had a second bleeding period within one cycle. I’m extremely dizzy and lightheaded, low blood pressure, no appitite, constant pressure/pain in my lower abdomen like I had when I was pregnant with my son, have moodswings, am emotional, and the occasional sharp pain in my breasts, but no tenderness or change in size. Also occasional pain on my right side. I never had tender breasts with my first pregnancy and could also not breastfeed. I’ve taken a test 3 days ago which was negative. I am on day 35 of my cycle now. Or should I count the second bleed as a period. I’m so confused, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          It may be a bit too early to get a positive result on an hpt, so it would be better to wait a couple of more weeks to get another one. And since each pregnancy is different, it is completely normal to have a few new symptoms in a subsequent pregnancy. That being said, having these symptoms is not enough to confirm pregnancy, so you need to wait until you can get a positive pregnancy test. All the best

      83. Sarah says:

        Please help. My period was 6 days late and I’m never late. I’ve had blood test on the forth day late and it was negative. I’ve had some bleeding now for two days put it doesn’t feel the same as my period. I feel hot all the time. I’ve had some cramps on the days I was late and the first day of bleeding (Sorry TMI) but it felt like I was be twisted on the inside. I can’t shake the feeling that I’m pregnant, Can still I be?

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          These symptoms are not enough to confirm whether or not you are pregnant, as these may result from a lot of other things. Although the blood test came negative, you could try taking a home pregnancy test after a week. Make sure it is the first thing you do after you wake up in the morning as the hCG levels are highest at that time, increasing your chances of getting a proper positive result. All the best.

      84. Brooke says:

        I’ve been having a lot of these symptoms such as, lower abdominal pain, lower bach ache, nausea where I have ran to the toilet thinking I’m going to puke, discomfort which makes it hard to sleep, headaches, bloating, weird dreams, feeling tired all tbe time, acne outbreak, and flu like symptoms like sneezing and sore throat. I had a period last month but it was unusual because I started really early and I’m suppose to be starting a couple days. I’m on the pill which I am scared to keep taking them if I am pregnant not sure if that does anything or not. These symptoms have been going on for a week and a half now. Can I take a test now or should I wait? Because I still might bleed and think I have a period since I’m still on the pill.

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          You mentioned your last period was unusual, did you notice anything odd other than that it started earlier than usual? Did it last the normal number of days or was it shorter/lighter? It is probably safe to stop taking the pills until you find out what is causing these symptoms. Just wait a couple of days to see if you have your regular cycle or not. You may also try taking a pregnancy test. Just make sure to take it first thing when you wake up in the morning. All the best.

      85. confussed says:

        I have been experiencing brown spotting. I had unprotected sex and then had a pill.. then i had sex with a condom a few days later, i had got my periods in the first week of the month bfore this unprotected sex, and now in the middle week i get this brown spotting and red bleeding in droplets, it stops and comes, plus no hunger pangs no nasuea, i gym everyday jog and do ab crunches. could i be pregnant?

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Only having a little bleeding does not mean that you must be pregnant, and you don’t seem to have any other symptoms. Keep track of your health and watch out for any physical change/symptom. Even if you are pregnant, it is a bit too early to take a pregnancy test. So, just wait for a couple of weeks and if you still feel like you could be pregnant after that, take the test to confirm.

      86. Allie Parker says:

        Hello, I have been experiencing lower back pain on my left side for the past week. It is at its worst during the night. I pee maybe every 30 minutes and it’s not a ton. My husband and I have been bickering more and it’s my fault I just have a shorter fuse but I’m totally more emotional and have been a big cry baby. I’m constantly thirsty I can’t drink enough and I have been waking up with dry mouth. I’ve had the hiccups maybe 4 times in the past week and I never get those. My nipples have stayed semi hard and itch when I am wearing a bra. My breast are also showing blue veins. Could these indicate that I’m pregnant please help

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          It is difficult to confirm if you are pregnant or not just from these symptoms, but you do seem to have a lot of signs that might indicate pregnancy. When is your next period due? Have you take a pregnancy test yet? You may consider taking an hpt if you miss your period. Take it the first think when you wake up in the morning for a better shot at getting the proper result.

      87. Sarah says:

        I was on the depo shot 2 times in my life, first time in 2011 after my daughter was born and stopped early 2012, things went normal for me quickly. Second time was early 2013 then switched to the patch and then back to depo last shot was Sep 2014. I am overweight and have been trying to get rid of the weight, my skin is kind of pale. Since the middle of April I have very noticeable veins, cramping, darkening areolas, metallic taste, peeing a lot more, dizziness, nausea, more hungry. Hpt negative I have had 1 blood test done negative, just got another done today will find out later but apparently my ob looks at me like I have 3 heads and says it’s due to my weight? I feel pregnant, I wasn’t expecting to get pregnant but if it happens so be it. This is driving me nuts.

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Well, it is pretty difficult to say anything from these symptoms as they may be occurring due to the shot as well. Just wait and see what the second blood test says as they are more accurate in detecting a pregnancy than hpt.

      88. dayana says:

        i been on the inplanon for almost 3 years i have my date to be removed on july,23rd 2015. my son just turn 3 on may 12. but for the last 2-3 weeks i been having lower back pain, stomach pain, cramps, nausea, cant sleep much at night, sleepy, diarrea , brownish discharge, urinating more frequently. could i be pregnant? i dont get my period every month b/c of the implanon but i just had it” from like the 5th – 12th.

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Even though you do have some of the common signs, it is not possible to confirm a pregnancy just from these symptoms. Have you taken a pregnancy test yet? It is possible to get pregnant even when you are on birth control. Just take a pregnancy test and you can also consider a blood test to find out as they can detect a pregnancy earlier than the hpt.

      89. johanna says:

        i’m not sure if I’m pregnant but I have a bad sore throat

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Having a bad sore throat does not mean you are pregnant. Do you have any other signs? Have you missed your period yet? It is impossible to tell whether you are pregnant or not from this one symptom that may be resulting from a bad weather.

      90. Julia says:

        I’m a week late for my period and all of my home pregnancy test are coming back negative, I’m having severe stomach pain and no other signs. Could I be pregnant or might if be something else?
        I already set an apt for the coming up week with my doctor.

        • Julia says:

          I’ve also had random moments of nausea at different times of the day

          • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

            Usually, a home pregnancy test should be able to detect a pregnancy as the hCG hormone levels are normally high enough at this stage. However, each pregnancy is different so there is nothing to worry about right now. How many pregnancy tests have you taken? Even though these symptoms are common in early pregnancy, they may also result from a lot of other factors as well. So, you can only know for sure whether you are pregnant or not after seeing your doctor, especially since your hpts are coming negative. All the best

      91. Jordan says:

        For about 2 weeks I’ve experienced neasua, cramps,bloating,so far I’m 3 days late on my period, I’m tired all the time, I’m craving food I normally don’t like, I have cervical mucus, I don’t normally keep heartburn and I’m keeping heartburn like crazy. Any suggestions. I took a home pregnancy test and it came back negative about a week back.

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          It is quite common for a pregnancy test to come negative in the early weeks as the hCG levels are often not high enough during this stage. Having all of these symptoms does not confirm a pregnancy though as they may result from lots of other factors as well. Try taking another hpt as it has been a week since the last one, so the hormone levels should be high enough to be detected. All the best.

      92. Shelley says:

        There should really be an app for that. LOL! I know all the signs and symptoms and somehow I’ve just had a feeling I was pregnant several times. I’ve only been pregnant once. It’s crazy what all you can talk yourself into believing. I want another baby so bad, but since we’re not financially ready we haven’t been trying at this time. I opted not to take birth control because it decreases my sex drive so much, but we have been using alternate methods. I never feel as comfortable with any of these alternate methods, but I’m married and I feel like if it happens anyway, then that’s how God planned it…and we’ll get through it. I had a passing thought that I was pregnant last month, but ended up having a period that ended on the 17th of last month. It was very much period like, but it was lighter and shorter than my periods usually are. This month we had sex 5 times between the 18th and 28th and I’ve gotten that “pregnant feeling” a little more severely this time. I know it’s probably in my head. These symptoms started 2 days ago. I have a strange, full feeling in my stomach and gurgling that was accompanied at the beginning with a cramp-like “pinch” on the right side. For the past two days I’ve had lower back pain, been super tired, had a sore throat and headache, and was stopped up where I couldn’t breathe during the night. I took a pregnancy test two days ago which came back negative, but if I am pregnant, I’m sure it wouldn’t be detected this early. I’m serious about the app thing though; let’s make it happen. Maybe some SUPER-SENSITIVE pee strips that eject from your phone or something…or a mind reading app that is always on point. Haha! THE WAIT!!! Ahhhh!!!

My nipples are sore and now my breast have gotten fuller and hurt to touch, i dont even want to wear a bra. I can smell EVERYTHING. I do not have any cravings. I am urinating more and past couple days ive been more tired than usual. Ive had slight cramping which my pms cramps usually have me in a ball crying, these have been very bearable. Im also v constipated, i have a very regular poop schedule lately i can sit on toilet for hours and still nothing. Is it.possible im pregnant? If so, id only be a lil over 3 weeks. Expecting my period June 10th

        I had My Period May 3rd and had Sex with My Husband May 16th and 17th. My Cycle is always regular. I am 7 days late today,ought to have seen My period May 30th but nothing other than the symptoms that I’m having : Waist/Low Back Pain, Headaches, Lightheadedness and Mild Lower Abdominal Cramps as if My period wants to come. I just took a HPT now and its Negative. I’m so Worried cos I have been TTC for 15mths after the Loss of My Baby who died 3weeks after delivery and I have been dead anxious to be pregnant again. Is there any chance that I could still be Pregnant even with the Negative HPT?

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Well, it is definitely possible to be pregnant even if you get a negative pregnancy test as the hCG levels in the urine are sometimes a little too low to be detected by an HPT in the early weeks. Keep track of your symptoms and wait for a week before taking another pregnancy test. However, having these symptoms does not always mean that you are pregnant as they may result from several other factors. Sorry to hear about your loss, you need to be strong. Try not to worry too much, try to stay calm. All the best.

      96. Kari says:

        I was supposed to start my period on June 1 but it never came. I know I ovulated as I feel it every month have a very regular 28 day cycle. I’ve been having light cramping since the day I was supposed to start that never seems to go away feels like I should be getting my period but it doesn’t happen. Breasts are a little tender only on the sides, today my lower back has been killing me. I get heartburn after just about everything i eat. I’ve also been having white discharge since the first day missed and off and on diarrhea/constipation also getting slight acne. I’ve taken several hpts last one this morning and they all show negative. Could I be pregnant or is it something else?

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          There is a chance that all these symptoms are resulting from something completely unrelated with pregnancy. Or, maybe your hCG levels are still too low to be detected by a pregnancy test. Have you considered consulting your doctor and getting a blood test done? They are much more accurate than HPTs. Good luck.

        I need help here. I’ve missed my period of course but I’ve been feeling sleepy, sick, hungry my discharge is milky white.

At times I’ll get heart burn and headachs but I’ve been having a lot of hiccups lately as well as joint pains. Am I pregnant? Please help

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          It is really not possible to confirm anything just from these few symptoms. How long has it been since you missed the period? Have you taken a home pregnancy test yet? If not, then take one and if it comes negative then wait for a week and take another test. All the best.

          Try to relax and wait a few more days for your period. Maybe you are just late for some other reason as having these symptoms does not necessarily indicate pregnancy. And if your period still does not come after another week, take another pregnancy test. Maybe your first one came negative because your hCG levels are not high enough to be detected by it yet. Whatever it may be, don’t worry too much right now. All the best.

        I have a question see of anyone has experience something similar to what’s going on with me, about two weeks ago I was cramping had sore breast so I thought I was going to have my period soon but nothing. Days went by and it kinda faded then started back again this week which is when im supposed to be getting my period and still nothing I’m three days late.

        Hey, I have a question, I was 6 days late and never been that late but started spotting pink and brownish blood the first day, the second day was a bit heavier with bright red blood but still not heavy like usual, third day was light again got heavier on day 4 but today I’m spotting pinkish blood and cramping in my thighs, lower back pain, headache and a little light headed, but I also cramped on my second and third day of being late but usually I don’t cramp at all until I’ve been on my menstraul a couple days??? Is there a chance I could be pregnant ?

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          It is not possible to confirm anything from these symptoms as you may be having all these signs from something completely unrelated to pregnancy. There is definitely a chance that you may be pregnant, but you need to take a pregnancy test to be sure. Try taking a home pregnancy test and see what it says. Good luck.

        I have been bleeding for 2 weeks, sometimes light somtimes a littke heavier than normal. (Which is completely abnormal for me) I also have some strange symptoms, nausea (at night) cramping ( mostly at night too) frequent urination, lower back pain, and headaches and dizziness. And i am really tired all the time! I havent taken a pregnancy test or anything like that… someone suggested I am having a miscarriage…

      102. Lex says:

        I took a hpt and it was negative. Then 2 weeks later I spotted for 3 days and then my period came on for 3 days. I didn’t experience any cramping which is unusual because I usually have the worst cramps on my first two days and my period normally last 5 days. I feel nauseous all the time, mainly at night and in the morning. I have headaches, I am emotional, I have white discharge, my lower back hurts, and I get light headed and dizzy. Also its hard for me to fall asleep aand stay asleep but I’m so tired during the day. I don’t feel like eating much but I usually always eat. And I’ve been having weird cramps. Could I be pregnant?

        • Lex says:

          Also, I’ve been off balance.

          • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

            All these symptoms often do occur during the early weeks of pregnancy. However, it is not possible to confirm whether or not you may be pregnant depending on these symptoms alone. A home pregnancy test may show a false negative result in the early stages if the hCG hormone levels are not high enough to be detected. All you can do now is to wait for a couple of weeks and then take another HPT so the hormone levels may be higher. Take the test first thing when you wake up in the morning and until then, take good care of yourself. Good luck.

      103. Melony says:

        My period is 6 days late, for the past week I have been feeling nauseous(never actually throwing up just sick feeling), heartburn, tired more than usual Just haven’t felt like myself. I’ve taken two pregnancy tests one in the afternoon when I was 3 days late and one in the morning the next day, all were negative. My husband and I have only been trying to get pregnant for a month. I guess I’m a little confused if I need to see my family doctor or test again, or really what to do?

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Having these symptoms does not necessarily mean that you are pregnant as the symptoms could be resulting from some other health issues. At the same time, it is possible for a home pregnancy test to give false negative results in the early weeks if the hCG levels in your urine are not high enough to be detected. Consulting your family doctor could be a good idea as he would be able to decide if it is the right time to take a blood test. Blood tests are more accurate than HPTs, letting you know if you are pregnant, at an earlier stage. And if you want to postpone seeing your doctor, then consider waiting for a week before taking another HPT so the hormone levels may be higher.

      104. Debra says:

        I have a headache, lower abdominal and back aching, fatigue, heartburn, moodiness, and diarrhea. I have my tubes tied and my periods have akways followed a specific pattern. Real moody the day before I start, second day moodiness is mild, and bleeding is light. Second and third day bleeding picks up and I’m tired all the time and hungry. By the fourth day bleeding has slowed and I’m generally done completely by the fourth or fifth day. However, I haven’t had a period in about 6 months and then all of a sudden I have one, but it’s not normal! I never ache or cramp with my periods! I ache off and on in my lower abdomen. I’m almost 2 weeks of heavy bleeding. I’m passing thick, dark red (almost black) clots that are very large. I generally cramp a bit and then once I hear a “plop” in the toilet or pass it, the ache goes away until the next clot! Could I be pregnant and having a miscarriage even though my tubes are tied. They’ve been tied for almost 14 years! I took a picture of my last clot but not sure how to post it. I do have some clotting during normal periods but no cramping and the heavy bleeding NEVER lasts this long and it’s never with the other symptoms that I stayed firsthand in this post.

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Although quite rare, it is indeed possible to get pregnant even after your tubes have been tied. But, the chances of complications are naturally very high in such pregnancies. In your case, you may be right in thinking that you are having a miscarriage as passing large blood clots is often an indicative sign. It might be a good idea to consult with your doctor to make sure there are no risk of any further complications.

        I had a tubaligation in 2008 and was pregnant in 2013 and lost it due to it being a tubal pregnancy. I had my period early this month and it was spotting first day heavy second and spotting last three days which is not normal for me. I have been having about all the symptoms shown on this site the last four days and took a pregnancy test about three days ago and it came up negitive . My symptoms are not letting up either if anything they are getting worse could I be pregnant again even though the test was negitive? My fiance and I would love a baby together but I am scared it may be a tubal again cause it is coming up negitive and I have had past problems with pregnancy not showing on urine till I was 2 1/2 to three months pregnant. Has anyone had this before and if so what was the out come.

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          First of all, a tubal pregnancy does not usually affect the home pregnancy test results. But, if this has happened to you in your previous tubal pregnancy, then you could consider a blood test. Blood tests can detect pregnancy earlier than an HPT and are more accurate. Since you have a tubal ligation and a history of a tubal pregnancy, it is important that your pregnancy be detected as early as possible. Hope everything goes well for you.

        Hi! I need help. I have irregular period. Had period around may 14-17 and then had unprotected sex on June 24. Then had my next period on June 28-July 1. Had unprotected sex again on July 11 and July 19. Now I am experiencing migraines, lower back pain, mood swings, left pelvic pain, dry throat, itchiness, started having acne, i feel bloated, mood swings ofc. Been having browning pink spotting for 2 days now. I took a home pregnancy test and it was negative. I am trying to have a baby 🙁 but with my irregular period, it is so difficult for me to determine, when is the best time. I don’t wanna have high hopes, but, could it be that i am already pregnant?

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          It is not really possible to confirm whether or not you may be pregnant just from these symptoms. Even though these symptoms do occur in early pregnancy, they may also result from something unrelated. So, nothing can be confirmed until you get a positive result on a home pregnancy test. And as far as your negative HPT result goes, it is possible for a home pregnancy test to give a false negative result in early pregnancy if the hCG hormone levels are too low in the urine to be detected. So, just wait for a couple of weeks to let the hormone levels become high enough (if you are actually pregnant), and take another test. All the best.

      109. Rachel says:

        It is now day 37 (day 1 being the first day of my last period) and I’m freaking out. Never been late since I was 11 and started. Took a dollar store pregnancy test (a couple days ago) because I am poor right now. It came back negative. I figure it could be an inaccurate test. But I’m also thinking at this point wouldn’t the levels be high enough to be detected? I’m having fatigue, weight gain, gassy, on and off abdominal cramping, constipation, slight nausea (but I figure that could be because of vitamins), and light headedness. Just so nervous because I’d like to bleed or get a positive test. It’s the not knowing that’s stressing me out!

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          It is indeed difficult to go on without knowing. But, a home pregnancy test may give a false negative result in the early few weeks due to the hCG hormone levels being too low to be detected. So, all you can do is wait another week and take another test. Make sure it is the first thing you do when you get out of bed in the morning as the hormone levels in the urine are usually highest at that time, increasing your chances of getting an accurate result. In the meantime, try to relax and stay healthy. All the best.

        Hi!
        I need a little help / advice.
        I was on the depo shot starting Dec 2014, I got another shot in March 2015, that was my last shot. I was supposed to get another shot in June, but I didn’t. Since March though, I haven’t had a period.
        So now it’s August, I have had no period since March, but I never got my last depo shot (2 months over due), and unprotected sex, and now I’m experiencing sore breasts, cramping, on & off low fevers, bad pain, head aches, unexpected break outs on my face, and a need for constant sleep.
        I had a little spotting in the beginning of July, not even more than a day.
        Can I be pregnant or is it a possibly I’m finally getting my period from getting off depo?

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          It is possible that these symptoms are resulting from your cycle becoming regular again. However, these symptoms are also common in early pregnancy, so it is difficult to confirm anything from them. It seems from your comment that you have been having these symptoms for about a month now. So, have you taken a home pregnancy test? If you haven’t, then you can consider taking one in a week or so.

          • Alysee says:

            I took a home pregnancy test 6 days ago & it was negative.
            I keep being told a false negative can come up cause of depo, but I’ve been pregnant before – there is no false negative, only false positive. So, so far negative.
            I also keep being told I can’t get pregnant since I haven’t had a period. But then I hear woman say they’ve gotten pregnant on depo or right when they missed their shot.
            Depo is very confusing & can really messed up a woman’s normal bodily functions..
            I called my ob to make an appointment but they can’t see me until next week.
            I’m hoping I can figure it out.

        Ok I have been on implanon for two years now and have been have joint pains for about a month severe cramping during sex only I have cloudy urine tender breasts nausea a change of apatite I am losing weight like crazy because I don’t have the taste for anything I use to eat I have not had a period since june and I have had a steady period since I had the implanon implant please somebody help me!!!!!!!!

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          Consider taking a home pregnancy test as these symptoms do not always mean you are pregnant. They may be resulting from some other underlying health condition. Losing weight rapidly is never a good sign. Take a pregnancy test and see what it says. You can also consider consulting your doctor if the test shows negative results. Good luck.

        Hi, about a week before my period was due started having some light cramping and bloating. It felt like i was on my period already but no bleeding. Also have very sore breasts and bf noticed my veins were showing alot more then they normally do. Been having back pain, nausea , been extra tired, having headaches, sore nipples, white discharge. Have had 2 dreams of 3 positive pregnancy tests. My last period was July 8 and i was supposed to get my period August 5 i have a very regular cycle. Took a test August 6 first thing in the morning and it was negative. My bf and i are very sexually active and are not using any form of birth control. Does anyone think i could be pregnant and took the test to early???

        • Pregmed Editorial Team says:

          It is possible that your HPT came back negative because it is too early for the hCG levels to be detected by a pregnancy test. However, it cannot be confirmed whether or not you are pregnant until you get a positive pregnancy test. It has been a few weeks since July 6, so you can consider taking another test as the hormone levels are supposed to be much higher now. All the best.
