If you’re sexually active and are interested in learning some of the key signs that you may be pregnant, you’ve come to the right place. Regardless of whether or not you’re using protection. As no form of protection is fool proof.
How will you know if you are pregnant:
You have missed a period:
As you may already know if you have missed a period and usually experience regular 28 day menstrual cycles, you may be pregnant. Although you should still take a pregnancy test as women can miss their period for a wide variety of reasons. As an example, you can miss a period due to stress or exercising for prolonged periods of time.
Visit a freehold gynecologist:
If you want to be certain of whether or not you’re pregnant, one of your best options is to book an appointment with a freehold obgyn. Regardless of whether or not you’ve missed your next period or are due for your next period in the next few weeks.
You feel nauseous but don’t throw up:
If you’ve been feeling nauseous but don’t have the urge to throw up, you may also be pregnant. As in the first few weeks of pregnancy, it’s not uncommon for women to feel nauseous. Especially first thing in the morning.
Your breasts start to hurt:
One symptom of pregnancy which many women suffer from is sore breasts. So if you notice that your breasts feel a lot more tender, it’s also well worth taking a pregnancy test or contacting a reputable obgyn.
No matter what you do, you feel pregnant:
If you start to feel lethargic on a daily basis, despite sleeping for 8 hours per night, taking your multivitamins and eating well, there may also be a chance that you’re pregnant. Especially if you find yourself feeling exhausted by noon.
You experience frequent mood swings:
If you feel on top of the world and down and depressed in a single day, there could also be reason to suspect that you may be pregnant. As unfortunately frequent mood swings are a common symptom of pregnancy and are caused by your hormones changing.
You find yourself rushing to the toilet all day long:
Another symptom of pregnancy is needing to go to the toilet far more often that you normally do. Why do pregnant women need to use the bathroom more frequently? There are two answers, firstly a pregnant woman’s body will try and flush toxins out, during the early stages of pregnancy. As a woman’s pregnancy progresses she may also need to go to the toilet more frequently as her uterus will start pressing against her bladder. Which will make having a relatively full bladder an uncomfortable experience.
Two positive pregnancy tests:
Many women make the mistake of telling all of their loved ones that they’re pregnant after a single positive result. Instead it’s a great idea to wait till you’ve taken two pregnancy tests, multiple days apart to visit your doctor for confirmation of a pregnancy.
So if you were unsure of how you can tell whether you’re pregnant or not, hopefully you now have a far better understanding of how to assess whether you could be pregnant or not!
