If you are worried that you might be pregnant, take a pregnancy test. They usually show reliable results either 10 days after an incident during which you could have gotten pregnant or on the day you missed your period.
Apart from a missed period (which is the most obvious sign of pregnancy), not all women experience syptoms such as *nausea; *inexplicable fatigue; *sore or enlarged breasts; *headaches; and *frequent urination.
Stop the worrying and get a test. And a full STD screen in a few weeks, too.
Angela, did you use a condom and a birth control method?
if you did, and the condom did NOT break or tear and was on for all contact, you really don't need to be worried.
If you didn't, yes, you should be worried (and about STDs and STIs to boot). You should also (don't mean to nag) make sure to use a condom as well as an additional method of birth control if you're going to be sexually active, babe.
PMS has a lot of the same symptoms of pregnancy. So it could very easily just be PMS. If you used a condom and it didn't break, and you used it correctly, your pregnancy risk is very, very low. But as Miz. S said, use an additonal method of birth control with the condoms if pregnancy worries you that much.
Ditzy hon, just go get a pregnancy test kit.
Stress or worrying too much can help delay your period so there is little point in worrying so much right now. Just take a pregnancy test.
Not all women go through the same symptoms of pregnancy so just by telling us your symptoms, we are unable to tell if you are pregnant at all. So to ease your fears, get that pregnancy test kit now. And if you want to be doubly sure, get two.
And as Siren said, if this is going to worry you so much, think of investing in another form of contraception. The birth control pill maybe?
I pee 7 times more than the average Joe every single day. It's just who I am.
If you're all bent out of shape about the chance of getting pregnant, it could be your anxiousness that's causing you to pee so much. When i get all hot and flustered, i have to pee too. It's really a pain in the butt.
I think this is a wonderful case of mind over matter. You're worried that you could be pregnant, so your body's doing things to convince you that it is. So you worry about it, and get yourself even more worked up when you don't know for sure. The only way to know for sure, of course, is to take a test.
After just a month, you won't notice anything. It takes about two-three months for pregnancy signs to appear. Just take a test. Two of them actually. If one or both of them is positive, then get a blood test from a doctor to make sure.
