Early Pregnancy Signs and Symptoms Answer A25756

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. Your concern is regarding the status of your pregnancy. Missed periods is the earliest sign of pregnancy and if there is any prior unprotected sexual intercourse, then chances of pregnancy are there.

I sincerely suggest you to do a urine for pregnancy test after 1 week-10 days of your missed periods . You can also get serum HCG levels estimated. For that please consult a gynecologist.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
