What are the symptoms of pregnancy in first week?

Even before you miss your periods, you may sometimes get some early signs of pregnancy. But many early signs of pregnancy can sometimes feel similar to premenstrual symptoms too.

When do the early signs of pregnancy start? 

Do you remember when you had your past periods? This date is considered week 1 of pregnancy – yes, even if you were not pregnant at this date. Then week 2 of pregnancy is the next week from your period and so on. So do women get the symptoms of pregnancy in first week? 

Even before you miss your periods, you may sometimes get some early signs of pregnancy. For some women, early symptoms of pregnancy start to show up in the first few weeks after conception. However, other women may just experience no pregnancy symptoms at all. It’s only when they take a pregnancy test at home that they come to know about their pregnancy. 

Many early signs of pregnancy can sometimes feel similar to premenstrual symptoms too. So the best way to find out about your pregnancy is to take a pregnancy test at home. However, if you are willing to wait for a missed period (the earliest sign of pregnancy) to take the test, the following list is for you. These are also the symptoms of pregnancy in first month. 

These are some of the early signs of pregnancy (pregnancy symptoms week 1) before a missed period: 

  • Painful breasts: this could be a sign that you’re pregnant, but it could also just be because you’re going through puberty.
  • Feeling low on energy 
  • Sensitivity to smell 
  • Rise in your basal metabolic temperature (normal body temperature) 
  • Tiredness: this could be a sign that you’re pregnant – though obviously there could be other causes!
  • Nausea: if you’ve been feeling sick for a few days, especially in the morning, it’s a good idea to do a pregnancy test.
  • Your period doesn’t start.
  • You only have a very small amount of bleeding. Sometimes you can have a little bleeding when you’re pregnant.
  • Headaches 
  • Constipation 
  • Feeling lightheaded or dizzy – as if you are fainting 
  • Mood sings 
  • Aversion to some foods
  • Frequent urination 

How soon can you get early signs of pregnancy? 

Before you miss your periods, you may notice some symptoms like sensitivity to smell and tender breasts. These symptoms may appear in some women as soon as a few days after conception. 

However, many women may get other early symptoms of pregnancy like spotting or nausea almost one week after the sperm meets egg. After two weeks of conceiving many women may also have pregnancy symptoms like tender breasts and frequent urination. That said, early pregnancy symptoms appear at various times in different women. So these early signs of pregnancy are no way of detecting a pregnancy. 

If you have had unprotected sex and worried about pregnancy, please take a home pregnancy test at the earliest.

Hi puttar, bleeding after sex is so common, but symptoms don’t come so soon anyway. It’s perhaps fear and nervousness more than anything else. But take a home pregnancy test at the earliest. And if it founds positive then consult a registered doctor and see what can be done. Also, you can contact FPAI clinic information about which you can get at their website. And then NEVER have sex without a condom. Ok? https://lovematters.in/en/resource/unplanned-pregnancy https://www.fpaindia.org https://lovematters.in/hi/pregnancy/home-pregnancy-tests-dos-and-donts https://lovematters.in/hi/birth-control/chosing-the-right-birth-control/morning-after-pills-instead-of-condoms-is-that-ok If you want to know about calendar method, read here: https://lovematters.in/en/our-bodies/ovulation-calendar-how-to-calculate-ovulation Yadi aap is mudde par humse aur gehri charcha mein judna chahte hain toh hamare discussion board “Just Poocho” mein zaroor shamil hon! https://lovematters.in/en/forum If you would like to join in on a further discussion on this topic, join our discussion board, ‘Just Ask’ https://lovematters.in/en/forum
Dear Dozie these pills are very trustworthy, but it affect the menstrual cycle of a woman. PLEASE do not use these carelessly. So it's not surprising for periods to be irregular. Wait for some more days and after that consult a specialist or a registered doctor. Please use a condom from today onward.

Is it a stage of menopauses'?? Did you consult a registered doctor about it?? Anyway... you took a pill, so seemingly the chances are low - Just relax. If you want to be double sure - do a home test - after 10 days of this act... and then NEVER have sex without a condom.

Samira bete if there has been any unsafe sex before, take a home pregnancy test after 10 days of unsafe sex. Morning urine sample is much better for this.

Thanks for your great teaching I love the study But I have a problem here through out last three weeks I have been feeling symptoms of pregnancy but the morning I found out that am bleeding and am also feeling pains in my abdomen Please what is going on with me help me. Thanks
First of all thank you dear Queen Juliet !! If you are still having periods after unsafe sex, then there are virtually no chances of being pregnant. But just to be on the safe side, it would be wise to take a home pregnancy test. Please use condom next time. And sometimes mild pain is normal at the time of Periods but these pains should not be more than usual. If you feel acute pain then please consult a registered doctor about it. https://lovematters.in/hi/resource/safe-sex https://lovematters.in/hi/pregnancy/unsure-about-being-pregnant/unsafe-sex-missed-period-am-i-pregnant https://lovematters.in/hi/pregnancy/home-pregnancy-tests-dos-and-donts If you would like to join in on a further discussion on this topic, join our discussion board, ‘Just Ask’ https://lovematters.in/en/forum

Seemingly the chances are low - you took an emergency contraceptive pill, so it’s perhaps fear and nervousness more than anything else and may have impacted your cycle too. So don't worry - but to assure yourself - do a home test ... and then NEVER have sex without a condom.
