If your period didn’t arrive on time, you’re probably wondering whether your period is just late — or maybe you're pregnant.
If you are not sexually active, you certainly don’t need to worry about getting pregnant. But be sure that you are honest about your sexual activity before you rule pregnancy out.
It only takes one sperm to fertilize your egg. So any time a man’s sperm comes in contact with your genitals, whether or not he inserts his penis into your vagina or has an orgasm while having sex with you, it could be possible for you to conceive.
Here are some early signs that you might be pregnant:
We usually associate cramps with having your period. But if an egg is fertilized and implants in the wall of your uterus, this can cause cramps that feel very similar to the ones you get just before your period. So if you have cramps but your period doesn’t show up, it could be a sign that you are pregnant.
If you are pregnant, you might see a small amount of blood, known as spotting, as the fertilized egg implants. So if you have a period that seems strangely light and probably a few days early, it is possible that you might be pregnant.
3) Sore breasts
If you are pregnant, your hormone levels will change to help your body get ready for all the things it needs to do while the baby grows. This can make your breasts tender, or may make your breasts seem bigger.
4) Feeling tired
If you suddenly find yourself needing a nap to get through the afternoon, you might be pregnant. Changes in hormone levels can make you feel very sleepy early in pregnancy.
Whether or not you vomit, nausea is a classic symptom of pregnancy. Although often referred to as “morning sickness,” nausea can come on any time of the day or night.
6) Cravings or aversions
If you suddenly find yourself turning away from your favorite food or craving particular foods, it could be a sign that you are pregnant.
7) Frequent urination
