​Signs of early pregnancy

The earliest and most reliable sign of pregnancy is usually a missed period.

Other symptoms can include:

  • morning sickness
  • tiredness
  • sore breasts
  • weeing more often
  • strange tastes, smells and cravings

Not all women will experience symptoms, so it's important to do a pregnancy test for confirmation.

Taking a pregnancy test

A positive test result is almost certainly correct. A negative result can be less reliable. If you get a negative result and still think that you may be pregnant, wait a week and try again.

You can use most pregnancy tests from the first day of a missed period. If you don't know when your next period is due, do the test at least 21 days after you last had unprotected sex.
