Pregnancy: Pregnancy is definitely a possibility and the only way to tell whether you are pregnant or not is to take a pregnancy test.

As doctors, the first thing we do when we hear a woman is having the symptoms of pregnancy, a light or missed period or abnormal spotting, we check a pregnancy test. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come. Good luck! ...Read more

Loss of appetite frontal lobe headaches and nausea.

Loss of appetite frontal lobe headaches and nausea.

I do not: Think you can determine if headaches are "frontal lobe" in nature. If you mean headaches in the front of your head the most common cause is sinusitis! The loss of appetite/nausea are probably UNRELATED!
In any case at age 25 these are most likely NOT serious complaints...seek the advice of your PCP (primary Care Provider) and BTW get your eyes checked as well!

For 2 weeks I've had tender breasts and nipples, headaches, nausea and loss of appetite. I have an IUD (PARAGARD) could I be pregnant?

Yes but not likely.: Your ParaGard is a highly effective way to prevent pregnancy and has a very low failure rate. Unfortunately it can be displaced, lose some of its effectiveness, be expelled or fail though quite rarely. If you are very concerned, check your blood pregnancy test. There may be transient causes for your symptoms which may be due to ovulation or hormonal changes that have nothing to do with the IUD. ...Read more
