PMS or Pregnancy?
This is very commonly asked question, and unfortunately, there is no easy answer. PMS symptoms and early pregnancy symptoms can be eerily similar, and it can be hard for you to distinguish between the two. The easiest way to find out if you’re pregnant is to take a home pregnancy test. (Or better – make an appointment with your gynecologist or doctor and get a blood pregnancy test to see if you have any pregnant hormones in your blood stream.)
Women who have never been pregnant before may have a more difficult time distinguishing pregnancy from PMS. But women who have had children and have indeed been pregnant in the past will tell you that it can be hard to tell the two apart.
If you’ve been trying to conceive, or on the flip side, if you are worried about an unplanned or unexpected pregnancy, this article will help you understand the difference between PMS and early pregnancy symptoms.
