Thanks for posting your query.

Normally after 4-5 days of missed period one can go for pregnancy test. Home test kit for urine tests HCG(hormone) in urine.

This is released by products of pregnancy.

Please wait for couple of days more and than go for pregnancy test.

If you are having regular cycles before this and have not taken any drugs in last month there are good chances of you being pregnant from symptoms that you have and missed period.

You can buy test kit from any medical shop near by and do test preferably with first morning sample.

I hope this helps.

Wishing you all the best for the time to come.

Good to hear from you again.

Yes, you should wait and repeat the test after couple of days.

The symptoms that you are having could be due to doctor for check up and treatment.

In case the problem is not bothersome please wait for couple of days and repeat the test.

Again recent gain in weight might indicate some hormonal imbalance.

Please wait for couple of days.
