Can do a preg. test: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some 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 regular period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms.
