Can do a preg. test: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms.

Test it but doubt it: Your body changes to the point a pregnancy begins showing at 4-5 months, unless you are heavy & wouldn't be able to tell. By that point your cycles would have stopped for several months. You can find a urine pregnancy test at many convenience or dollar stores & it would be positive if you are. Do the test and seek prenatal care if you are. If not, do whatever you please.
