If you recently had sex (protected or unprotected) and now your period is late, there is a possibility you are pregnant. The only way to know for sure is to take a pregnancy test. At Metro Women’s Center, we offer them for free.

Here is a list of other symptoms of early pregnancy and what you can expect.

Early signs of pregnancy

Within the first couple of weeks of pregnancy, many women experience common symptoms. A pregnant woman could have all of them, a few of them, or none at all. Every pregnancy is unique, just like a woman. Are you experiencing any of these?

  • A late or missed period
  • Increased urination
  • Tender, swollen breasts
  • Moodiness
  • Morning sickness
  • Fatigue
  • Food aversions
  • Bloating
  • Light bleeding or spotting 

Verifying your pregnancy

Over-the-counter pregnancy tests are reliable, but often women take them at the wrong time or don’t follow the directions correctly. It’s even possible to get a positive result on a home pregnancy test and not be pregnant!

The Mayo Clinic reports up to 20% of known pregnancies end in a natural miscarriage. Most miscarriages happen early in a pregnancy, sometimes before a woman even realizes she’s pregnant. If you have miscarried, it’s possible to receive a positive home pregnancy test result still weeks after.
