Not necessarily!: In early pregnancy it is possible to feel depressed. There are hormonal changes and emotional ups and downs are normal. At the same time, no depression is not a sign of early pregnancy.

No: The best way to determine pregnancy is with a pregnancy test. Worrying about whether one is pregnant can cause anxiety with problems sleeping, all of which may contribute for feeling depressed or sad. Feeling depressed can occur for a variety of reasons. Maybe an evaluation by a physician is in order to rule-out both depression and pregnancy and to also make sure nothing else is wrong?
