Wondering if you might be pregnant? There are lots of early signs of pregnancy that can give you a clue as to whether it’s time to take a pregnancy test. Take our quiz to find out if you’re experiencing any of the common signs of pregnancy. 

Am I pregnant quiz:

Remember, taking this quiz is just a guide to whether you might be pregnant. To make sure and to confirm if you are pregnant, take a pregnancy test and visit your GP.

If you're on the pill or using another form of contraception, it's worth remembering that no contraceptive is 100% reliable, so if you're not sure, take a test. 

If your at home pregnancy test is negative, but you are experiencing early pregnancy symptoms, it could be worth waiting a few days and doing another test - or getting in touch with your doctor to book a blood test.

You may also find that you see a faint line on your pregnancy test - this usually indicates a positive test, but just means that you are very early on in your pregnancy. Again, waiting a few days and then repeating an at home test will normally give you a clearer result. 

Common early signs of pregnancy include feeling sick, tiredness, missing your period, sore and heavy boobs, feeling faint, shortness of breath, and heightened sense of smell and taste. You may also find that you're urinating more frequently, or that you're experiencing mood swings.

Most of these changes are caused by the pregnancy hormone hCG. It's all very normal and most women will experience some kind of early pregancy symptoms, so don't worry too much, it's just your body getting itself ready for the next 9 months!
