Feeling tired , frequent headaches

User Profile
I am 17 and I think I am pregnant. I have looked at slot of sites on the Internet and think there is a possibility. I have had some symptoms like: tired feeling all the time, frequent headaches, stomach hasn't been the same, I think fatigued and nausea, some bloating, my appetite seems different too. I feel like I am pregnant though I just am not sure. My period is supposed to come in a week or so but not knowing is stressing me out. Me and my bf want this baby if I am preg I am just not able to remain calm not knowing. Could I be preg?

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

The possibility of pregnancy is there if you had had sexual intercourse during the unsafe period.

The urine for pregnancy test takes time to become positive (usually around 1 week after the missed periods).

I’ll suggest doing a serum beta HCG test which is a more sensitive test and can be done even before waiting for the next periods. I sincerely hope this information helps. Take care.
