Sharp pain in right nose, pressure in eyes, forehead and now teeth, all on right side mainly, just got over a month long sinus infection, could it be another one or just pregnancy rhinitis?

Pain radiating to the teeth, is definitely a sign of either the primary etiology being a dental infection from the beginning, or maturation of a sinus infection, which could be either primary or secondary in nature. The Osteomeatal Complex is convoluted and needs evaluation. ...Read more

I think I'm about 2 weeks late for my menstrual, have many pregnancy symptoms such as dark area and Montgomery glands, head ache, backache, very fatigu?

Can do preg. Test: 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. 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. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more
