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

Is low blood pressure one of the early pregnancy signs? As well as dizziness? What causes these?

Is low blood pressure one of the early pregnancy signs? As well as dizziness? What causes these?

Yes.: Until the 18th to 20th week of pregnancy, elevated Progesterone levels (a hormone associated with pregnancy) relax blood vessel walls, resulting in a reduced blood pressure. This is commonly associated with lightheadedness upon standing. By the 18th to 20th week of pregnancy, this effect is countered by the increased blood pressure associated with the additional blood volume of the pregnancy. ...Read more

Been feeling really tired, sick, sore lower back, headachs, dizzy & milky white discharge. Is this a early pregnancy sign?

Been feeling really tired, sick, sore lower back, headachs, dizzy & milky white discharge. Is this a early pregnancy sign?

Maybe. Maybe not.: 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

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

Should I be worried? I have not had my period for almost 11 weeks. I have taken pregnancy test after test and they all come up negative. I am not showing obvious signs for pregnancy. I am really tired and some times I feel sick and dizzy but I never vomit

Hello.: Hello. I am assuming that you are an adult female who normally has fairly regular periods. You describe lack of period, marked fatigue, feeling dizzy and nauseated. If your symptoms are related to your lack of a period, could consider thyroid disease or changes in your hormones if you have had a marked drop in weight recently, you have been engaging in heavy physical activity (like running marathons) or you are feeling really stressed. This is not an all inclusive list. If you have really low body fat that can also be an issue. You have likely missed two menstrual cycles or possibly three, depending on how long your cycle is. Recommend that you see your gynecologist to help determine cause. Take care. ...Read more
