What are the early signs of pregnancy?

Some women notice early pregnancy symptoms while others do not. In any case, the hormones of pregnancy start showing up in the pregnant woman 5–7 days after fertilization occurs (the penetration of the ovum by a single sperm). These hormones initiate changes in the body even before the menstrual period is missed. Oftentimes women notice very early that something is different. Following are some of the symptoms that cause a woman to surmise that she may be pregnant:

  1. A missed period.
  2. You may find yourself urinating more often than usual.
  3. Nausea, commonly called morning sickness, occurs at anytime during the day and can be vague and fleeting or sometimes result in vomiting.
  4. Changes in the breasts which result in a feeling of tenderness, fullness, or tingling.


How accurate are your tests?

Our pregnancy tests can determine as little as 25ml/HCG (the hormone present during pregnancy) per cc of urine. This is the most accurate urine test available. It has the same accuracy as those used by any emergency room or clinic. First morning urine is more accurate since your urine is more concentrated at that time.
