What Are symptoms of Pregnancy?

Before taking a pregnancy test, you may have missed your period. For many women, this is one of the first signs that they are pregnant. However, a missed period doesn’t always mean you are. It is important to know the signs of pregnancy.

Signs of pregnancy include:

– Fatigue
– Increased urination
– Tender, swollen breasts
– Missed period
– Nausea with or without vomiting

Again, these symptoms can occur for other reasons, so it is best to speak with a medical provider and confirm your pregnancy as soon as possible.

How Does a Pregnancy Test Work?

Pregnancy tests detect human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), a pregnancy hormone that is present after a fertilized egg is implanted in the woman’s uterus. Urine-based and blood tests are the two most common types.
