Yes: Certain pms can be the same as pregnancy symptoms such as breast tenderness and swelling, even pelvic cramps.

Can be similar: Symptoms of pms and early pregnancy can be similar. If you've had unprotected sex, pregnancy is possible. If you miss your period, a home pregnancy test will provide an answer.
