How do I know if I’m pregnant

If you recently had unprotected sex and want to confirm whether you are pregnant or not, there are certain signs and symptoms you can look out for.
A missed menstrual period is often the first indication of pregnancy but it is not 100% reliable because periods can be delayed due to many other factors e.g. it could be a side effect of a contraceptive, changes in daily diet, stress, or some other medical problem.

Even if you have been using birth control, there’s a chance that your method failed. Contraceptives are not perfect and they all have different degrees of effectiveness. If you want to hear from women who have experienced contraceptive failure, visit our forum.
