Many women assume that they won’t get pregnant if they use contraception. However, no contraception is 100% effective. If you’ve recently had sex (with or without contraception), you could be pregnant.

A late period is usually the first sign of pregnancy, but you can miss your period for other reasons as well. Do any of these other early pregnancy symptoms seem familiar?

Early Pregnancy Symptoms

Because no two women are the same, neither are their pregnancies. Some women experience every symptom immediately, while others don’t feel anything for months. The Mayo Clinic lists the following as common early pregnancy symptoms:

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

Other health issues can cause these symptoms. For instance, frequent urination can result from a urinary tract infection, and the flu can cause nausea. Your best bet is to take a pregnancy test. At HopePlace, we offer a free and confidential pregnancy test or retest.
