Home pregnancy test: A home pregnancy test can reliably tell you whether you are pregnant or not; the test looks for beta-hcg in your urine. B-hcg is only secreted by a fertilized egg or a placenta.

Can't, unless no sex: If you've not had genital intercourse (sex) for the past 3-4 months, then it is unlikely that you are pregnant. Get a test and pee on the strip. If pregnant see ob/gyn; if not see md (maybe ob/gyn) to see if hormonal issues etc.

It depends: In early pregnancy, <12 weeks you are limited to saline washes, benedryl and tylenol (acetaminophen). After that you can take decongestants, cough medicines and tylenol (acetaminophen). Avoid meds with motrin, Ibuprofen or aspirin.

Pregnancy Test: If you have missed your period, you may want to take an at home pregnancy test that you can get a drug store. If it is positive, see your dr. However, those tests are not always accurate. Your dr can do a blood test, which is very accurate.

Im pregnant can I eat sushi?

Yes and no.: Officially the answer is avoid, but realistically fish that is "sushi grade" - frozen properly - is fine. See fda.Gov. Be careful with shark, king mackerel or swordfish as they are higher in mercury content.
