Early Signs and Symptoms of Pregnancy
In addition to a missed period, the earliest signs and symptoms of pregnancy might include:
• Nausea with or without vomiting
• Tender, swollen breasts
• Increased urination
• Food aversions or cravings
You might also experience:
• Slight bleeding or cramping
• Mood swings
• Darkening of the areolas (the circle around the nipple)
The only way to find out for sure is to do a pregnancy test. A negative test may be incorrect because it has been done too soon. It is a good idea to take another pregnancy test up to three weeks after intercourse if you are still concerned.
