Pregnancy: Signs And Symptoms

Share:


Am I pregnant? The only question that often rings over and over again in the head of a fertile woman few days after having an unprotected sex.
It is normal to feel that way but you cannot just conclude you are pregnant if you cannot point out one or two  signs and symptoms.

Do not worry, we are going to take you through the early signs and symptoms of pregnancy so you can diagnose yourself at home anytime you are having weird feelings after an unprotected sex.


Early Signs And Symptoms Of Pregnancy

Missed Period
Missed period is the best indicator of pregnancy even though sometimes it may be as a result of a medical condition or the reflection of excessive use of contraceptives.

There was this lady who once reached out to me about her missed period; she thought she may be pregnant but she was really confused because she was on a contraceptive pill. I talked to her and realized she was overdosing the pill; the overdosing had imposed negative effects on her menstrual cycle. I told her to stop taking it and within a few days, she started menstruating.
This means, not every missed period is a sign of pregnancy. You must know yourself and be conscious about what you put inside you.


Changes in and around the breast
A few days after conception, the hormonal stand of a woman changes, this results in sore, tingly, heavier or swollen breasts. The areola, which is around the nipples, becomes a little bit dark.


Fatigue
If you suddenly start feeling tired all the time a few days or weeks after having an unprotected sex, you may be probably pregnant. Women becomes  fatigued after they have conceived due to the increase in progesterone levels.


Nausea (Morning Sickness)
Have you suddenly been feeling nauseous lately? Hmm... If your answer is yes then, what you should be asking yourself is, when was the last time I had an unprotected sex? Because, you may be pregnant. Nausea, which is often referred to as morning sickness, is sometimes experienced by women who have conceived and are going through hormonal changes.
