Ask the Health Educator: Question About Early Pregnancy Symptoms

Question from June 27, 2012:

I had my period two weeks ago, but i have thrown up a lot the past day, i’ve been crying, I can’t keep any food down, my breasts are sore and I’m super exhausted. I am wondering if these could be early pregnancy symptoms.


The symptoms that you have described can be the early signs of pregnancy. However, these signs and symptoms are not unique to pregnancy. Some can indicate that you’re getting sick or can be attributed to some other reason. Likewise, you can be pregnant without experiencing any of these signs and symptoms. The only way to know for sure if you are pregnant is with a pregnancy test. You may choose to take an at home pregnancy test or come in to Teen Matters for a pregnancy test and also discuss birth control options. No appointment is necessary – hope to see you soon!
