Welcome to e health forum.

The possible symptoms that are common in pregnancy include - Missed periods, Breast tenderness, Nausea in the early morning, Vaginal discharge from pinkish white to brownish, Spotting, Fatigue and Increased urge to urinate.

In your case, though the history and your symptoms mentioned do indicate your chances of pregnancy are high, it can be confirmed only by a home pregnancy test.

Hence you should get a urine pregnancy test atleast after 1 week, after the missed period, so as to confirm your status.

Other causes of missed period other than pregnancy include - Severe stress and anxiety, acute weight changes, eating disorders (Bulemia), Rigorous exercises, conditions like ovarian cysts (with irregular cycles) and hypothyroidism. Hence if your urine pregnancy test is negative, you should undergo evaluation by your doctor.

I hope this helps.

Pregnancy symptom? Implantation bleeding, Or am I crazy?
I am wondering if I am pregnant. I have been pregnant before and I knew because I felt sort of high (not fully dizzy just cloudy) and tired and constant headache. I am 28 and been on the pill for years. Had sex on the 17th of march and a few days later spotted. It's now the 29th and I am supposed to get my period in 2 days I had light spottin when I wiped but then gone. Also extreme lower back pain and bloating and I never have lower back pain with periods. I took first response today (march 29) and its negative. Am I pregnant or is it to early to test?
