What if I Have Pregnancy Symptoms?
Pregnancy symptoms can be confusing because they can also be symptoms of other conditions. Many women wonder if they are imagining symptoms in hopes or fear of being pregnant. So, detecting the early signs of pregnancy without a test can be tricky.
You could also be pregnant even if you used contraception. No form of contraception offers a 100% guarantee. If you’re worried about being pregnant, the best thing to do is to take a pregnancy test.
