How Do You Know If You’re Pregnant?

One of the first signs of pregnancy is a missed period, but your menstrual cycle can change for a lot of different reasons. So how do you find out if you’re actually pregnant? What should you look for?

If you’ve recently had unprotected (or maybe even protected) sex and your period is late, it’s time to take a look at some of the other early symptoms of pregnancy. Here’s a list of the most common:

Early Pregnancy Symptoms

The Mayo Clinic lists these as classic signs of pregnancy:

  • A missed period
  • Tender, swollen breasts
  • Nausea with or without vomiting
  • Increased urination
  • Fatigue

Other Possible Signs

  • Moodiness
  • Bloating
  • Light Spotting
  • Cramping
  • Constipation
  • Food aversions
  • Nasal Congestion

Unfortunately, these can also be the sign of other health issues. Symptoms like fatigue, nausea, and nasal congestion could merely mean you have a cold. Likewise, you can miss a period because of increased exercise, hormonal changes, or taking certain medications.

It’s actually possible to have none of the above symptoms, but still, be pregnant. Every woman is unique and so are her pregnancy symptoms. It’s important to confirm your pregnancy as early as possible. Your best course of action is a pregnancy test.
