Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
If you have missed a pill or two this month and you have been having unprotected sex regularly, then your chances of being pregnant are there. The symptoms you are having are non specific and do not conclusively indicate about pregnancy.

If you experience any symptoms of pregnancy then you should check the status of pregnancy. Pregnancy symptoms include absent or delayed period for more than 10 days along with morning sickness, vomiting, frequent urination, feeling tired, tenderness of breasts, light-headedness, feeling dizzy, getting irritated, and increase sensitivity to smell.

In such a case, you can test for pregnancy by a highly sensitive pregnancy test with a sensitive ( 20 - 25 mIU ) pregnancy test kit. Also then I would suggest you to get your serum HCG levels estimated since this is more specific than urine for pregnancy tests.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
Feeling constipated is not suggestive of pregnancy. It could be due to change in the diet, decreased fluid intake or premenstrual syndrome.
Hope my answer is helpful.
