I Think I'm Pregnant
I think I might be pregnant. What are some early pregnancy symptoms?
Sometimes the first sign of pregnancy is a missed menstrual period. Other common early symptoms can include: breast tenderness, fatigue, nausea, frequent urination, mood swings, and headaches. These symptoms do not necessarily mean you are pregnant.
I have had sex, but we have been "careful". How did this happen?
No form of birth control prevents pregnancy or the transmission of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) 100% of the time. The only way to completely prevent pregnancy or the transmission of STIs is abstinence, or refraining from sex and sexual activities. If you are having sex you can get pregnant, even if you are using condoms, birth control pills, or any other method.
When does pregnancy begin?
Pregnancy begins at conception, when a single sperm makes contact with an egg. At that time, the 23 chromosomes and approximately 50,000 genes from each parent are combined to determine all of the baby’s physical characteristics: sex, facial features, body type, hair color, eye color.
