Am I Pregnant? : If You Might Be Pregnant
Knowing for Sure
There are lots of symptoms associated with early pregnancy, but every woman will be different. Some women experience symptoms very early, and some women hardly experience any symptoms at all. A missed period and a positive test are the two main indicators that you may be pregnant.
If you track your menstrual cycle on a calendar, you will have an idea of when to expect your period each month. When you have a regular cycle the first day of your period is fairly predictable. If that day comes but your period doesn’t, that may be a sign of pregnancy. If you have an irregular period, the timing of the first day of your period will be more unpredictable. You may want to take a pregnancy test if you’re experiencing possible pregnancy symptoms or if you have gone longer without a period than is usual for you.
The best indicator of pregnancy is a positive pregnancy test. Pregnancy test accuracy and cost vary.
