Am I pregnant?

If you recently missed a period or had unprotected sex, you’re probably wondering if you’re pregnant. Unexpected pregnancy can be overwhelming, so before you start worrying, take a look at some of the most common pregnancy symptoms.

Missed Period

A missed period is one of the most commonly reported early signs of pregnancy. A missed period alone can actually mean a number of things, but combined with any of the symptoms listed below, it could mean pregnancy.


Another early pregnancy symptom is an unusually high level of tiredness. This is because of the hormonal changes that happen to a woman’s body when she is pregnant.

Breast Tenderness

Breast tenderness, soreness, or heaviness is a common symptom of pregnancy that many women notice as early as two weeks after conception.

Nausea or Vomiting

Commonly known as “morning sickness,” nausea or vomiting can actually happen at any time of the day if you are pregnant. If you’ve been feeling unusually sick lately, it may be time to take a pregnancy test.

Other common early pregnancy symptoms include:

  • Frequent Urination
  • Headaches
  • Backaches
  • Mood Swings

While experiencing one or more of these symptoms cannot confirm if you are pregnant, it may tell you that it’s time to take a pregnancy test. Pregnancy symptoms also vary woman to woman, so even if you aren’t experiencing any of these symptoms, it doesn’t mean you’re not pregnant.
