HPT: Hello I am wondering if you might have a viral illness. If you are losing a lot of fluids from loose bowel movements it could account for dizziness. I would encourage you to hydrate well with water to begin with. You may need to take sips at first. Even if you do have a viral gastroenteritis, that would not mean that you aren't pregnant. You could take a 1st morning void hpt to check for preg. ...Read more

Could be 2 weeks preg. Having dizzy spells, extreme fatigue, headaches, mild cramps, basically PMS symptoms but it's too early. Could this be preg?

Possible: If it's too early for PMS, it's clearly too early for a test. Your ovulation seems to have been longer ago than I'd have thought by a bit - But if you had unprotected sex near that event it certainly is possible. If you want this - good. If not, ALWAYS use protection. Also, think about STDs and condom protection. Take care - best! ...Read more

Having lightheadedness/dizziness/tender breasts for about 5 days. Expect period in 1-2 days. Not normal pms symptoms for me. Could I be pregnant?

Hard to guess: It can be hard to guess whether a woman is pregnant or not. A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period, or after having a "weird" period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. ...Read more

My appetite increased I have lower abdominal pain fatigue cravings feeling bloated feel dizzy. Is this PMS or early pregnancy symptoms?

Hard to tell...: 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. ...Read more

Dizzy, feeling of faint, lower abdomen cramps, pink spot on undies, sensitive breast, backache...Period will be on the next day. Is it only pms?

Previous PMS?: All the symptoms you described, dizziness, sleepiness, fatigue, sore breasts, light spotting before expected period, cramping, and backache, can all be early signs of pregnancy. Has this complex of symptoms been typical for you as a part of pms? If not, since pms usually follows a predictable pattern, pregnancy is highly likely and getting a pregnancy test seems to me a good idea.. ...Read more

Fatigue, cramps, diarrhea, nausea, tender breasts, metallic taste, woke up dizzy. Usually don't have many PMS symptoms. Period due 10/8. Pregnant?

Unsafe sex?: Just about now (give or take) might be your ovulation time - so unprotected sex a few days ago and since could result in pregnancy. It would be way too early for most of those symptoms to be related. Could be an ovulation problem, but could be a flu or anything. Use protection if you don't want a baby or STD. Test if your period doesn't arrive. Have an exam if you feel ill. ...Read more

Spotting Barely. Headaches dizzy lightheaded. Full tender breast Darker nipple area. Cramps. Constipation Frequent urination. Pregnant vs PMS symptom?

Unprotected sex?: If both of you are fertile and you had unprotected sex it is rarely impossible to conceive. It can be much less likely at some times, but never impossible. So, have a test. Then if you are not pregnant and don't want to be - use protection each time you have any sexual contact. It will also protect you from stds. Test/exam if missed period.

Darkened nipples, light tingly (gas maybe?)like cramps, nausea, food cravings, dizziness, nosebleeds, & sore breasts PMS or pregnancy? Also light bleeding

Could be either: There is a lot of overlap between premenstrual symptoms and early pregnancy symptoms. Even light bleeding around the time of an expected period can occur with pregnancy. A home pregnancy test and/or a blood test at your doctor's office may help clear things up. After testing, if you are pregnant or still have unexplained symptoms consult your doctor. ...Read more
