Is it worth taking a pregnancy test?

I had my period two weeks ago so I'm pretty sure my symptoms aren't PMS but I would only be two weeks along. I've been really tired and having vivid dreams, I suddenly got acne worse than usual, I've been nauseous around the same times, having swollen breasts and very tender nipples, i go between being hot and cold, sometimes I get dizzy and I have been crazy emotional. Like just sitting watching tv and start crying. My periods are anything but regular and about a two month gap seems to be the soonest cycle so I'm pretty sure it's not that but we have been trying and I just don't want to get my hopes up but it all just seems odd.

Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

If you have irregular periods and have been trying, then your symptoms could be due to a combination of emotional stress and hormonal problems due to either polycystic ovary or thyroid problems etc. Yes, pregnancy is also a possibility. The only way to know is to take a pregnancy test. If you are not pregnant then please consult your gynecologist regarding this. Treating the irregular periods will increase your chances of conceiving. Hope this helps. Take care!

is it worth getting a pregnancy test?
Hi I am also wondering whether its worth testing. 1st day of last period was 2nd feb. Still waiting for a period. I usually get pms symptoms 2 days before, but had nothing so far. My bf and I use condoms, but sometimes we get caught up and we do it for a little while before putting on a condom.
At the moment symptoms I am feeling are tiredness, drained, lots of creamy white cervical mucus (i actually sometimes feel damp this week!), last couple days feel like i wanna eat more than usual, feel irritable and very emotional when watching anything on tv, No cramps, not even a hint of blood, boobs feel heavier but no tenderness or sore nipples (i usually get this around my period which is also weird).Need to urinate all the time last couple weeks - at least every hour it feels like, sometimes I will go and 15mins later I need to go again! No itching, irritation or weird smells or feelings down below so i know its not anything illness related. Right above my pubic bone it feels a little firmer than usual. I have had a couple of moments where i've felt sick but it passed very quickly and i didnt take much notice.

I dont want to go out and buy a pregnancy test if im being ridiculous. Because ive done that before. but i am driving myself nuts!
