You feel nauseated, tired, and a little woozy, and your period is a week late, but is it really pregnancy? In the early stages, it’s hard to tell. If you’ve been hoping for a baby for awhile and you’re undergoing fertility treatments, you might alternate between noticing small symptoms and getting excited about possible pregnancy, and ignoring the early signs completely because you’ve had so many disappointments.
Even more confusing is the task of distinguishing early pregnancy symptoms from side effects of fertility treatment and fertility medicines. Before you jump for the phone and schedule a pregnancy test with your doctor, check out this list of early pregnancy symptoms and fertility drug side effects that are often mistaken for early signs of pregnancy.
Here’s the lowdown on common symptoms and whether they really indicate pregnancy.
Remember, the only way to really tell if you’re pregnant is to take a pregnancy test, and then wait, since even pregnancy tests can sometimes be incorrect.
