Will you get a positive pregnancy test before symptoms such as nausea, dizziness, etc. Show up? Last test was negative

Maybe: The pregnancy test is objective (doesn't rely on the woman's perceptiveness) and will be accurate 3 weeks after sex. The early pregnancy symptoms are subjective. Thus, some women feel symptoms sooner, and some women feel them later. Also, different women have different intensities of symptoms, which also changes how soon they feel them. ...Read more

Is it normal to have an early pregnancy signs such as lightheadedness, dizziness (that lasted 3 days), etc and a regular period 6 days later?

Happens: Lightheadedness and dizziness are symptoms that could be seen in pregnancy, but certainly do not have to be. Furthermore, they can be caused by a lot of factors that have nothing to do with pregnancy. So having the symptoms, and then a normal period leads one to assume that the dizziness was not pregnancy related. ...Read more

Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more

Anytime you like: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

Is it normal to feel slightly dizzy in early pregnancy. Sometimes feel like slightly in water?

Further testing: During pregnancy, there is a redistribution of your blood volume, which can certainly contribute to a feeling a dizziness. Nausea from morning sickness can also cause dizziness. I am concerned about the "water" part; if I saw you in an office setting I would be concerned that this may be related to pulmonary edema or PE and would want to pursue some further testing. ...Read more
