Whenever you have sex, there is always a chance for pregnancy. Pregnancy symptoms differ from woman to woman and pregnancy to pregnancy; however, one of the most significant symptoms for pregnancy is a delayed or missed period. You may experience signs or symptoms of pregnancy within a week of conception. However, it is possible you may not experience any symptoms for a few weeks.
Symptoms to watch for early on include a missed period, headaches, tender breasts, nausea and lower backaches. Unfortunately, these signs and symptoms are not unique to pregnancy and likewise you can be pregnant without experiencing any of these signs and symptoms. If you have been sexually active and are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to take a pregnancy test at Loreto House.
