Pregnancy I have questions about some pregnancy symptoms I've been having but I'm not sure if I'm pregnant.
The only way to know whether you are pregnant or not is to take a 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 and a doctor's test can tell around when you should be getting your next period.
Good luck! ...Read more
