Could I Be Pregnant? 

If you have sex there is always a chance for pregnancy. Many women assume if they are using contraception they can't become pregnant, however contraception is not 100 percent effective and there is still a chance for pregnancy.  

Pregnancy Symptoms

Late or Missed Period 

 

Once you are pregnant, you will stop having monthly periods until a few weeks after your baby is born. This is one of the first signs of pregnancy women notice. 

Food Aversions

Some of your favorite foods may suddenly taste bad, while others you normally don't like become appealing. 

Pregnancy triggers hormonal changes         that may affect taste buds.

Hormonal fluctuations caused by pregnancy may cause you to become more emotional than usual.
