My question is slightly detailed..
I am wondering if I am confusing stress symptoms with early pregnancy symptoms.
I have the headaches, the nausea for a 1 1/2 wks (only vomited once), fatigued, bloated, emotional, lack of appetite/craving things I know I wouldn't normally enjoy, mainly the thing that is the worst is the nausea.. sometimes I can hardly talk without the feeling intensifying.
I am under circumstances that could greatly stress me out though, but I'm used to a lot of stress too, and I wouldn't normally react this way. Also.. I have been put back on birth control I am on my 4th package now with 1 week left of pills. I have been put on them to control my PCOS. But I heard that PCOS can make it difficult (different per individual of course) to concieve.. so with the combination of starting on birth control again as well as having PCOS I'm wondering if my symptoms could still be early pregnancy? Or all in my head? What are the chances with my medical history? Thx =)
All the symptoms you describe (headaches, nausea, fatigue, bloatiness, lack of appetiteâ¦) manifest during many different types of disorders and conditions including pregnancy and depression. Pregnancy can be confirmed or excluded very simply-just do a home pregnancy test. Sterility is one of the symptoms of PCOS so pregnancy is a less likely scenario than depression.
