Is a low temperature always a sign of early pregnancy (about 3 weeks) or can you be pregnant and not have one. I have been really tired frequent urination spotted dark brown/pink blood for 2 days tender breasts feel naucious had low grade fever yesterda

Low: Low grade fever can be a sign of early pregnancy. Not everyone experiences this, so to answer your question, yes you can be pregnant and not have a low grade fever.
On the other hand low grade fever, especially if it lasts for a while, may may a sign of an infection. If this is the case (prolonged fever) you should inform your doctor right away.
Also you can take an early prediction test at this point.
Good luck. ...Read more
