Hi

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.

The blood test can be taken as early as 2-3 weeks after your last periods.

So you can take it now.

Also pregnancy symptoms consist of nausea, vomiting, breast soreness.

But let me tell you that these are very non specific symptoms and not always present.

Thank you Dr. XXXXXXX

what time of the cycle does a woman start experiencing these symptoms?
At 23rd day of my cycle, i am not experiencing any such symptoms.Does that mean I should wait till my next periods and not go for blood test? I am becoming more and more restless with each passing day. too tensed :(

Dear XXXXXXX

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

A woman starts experiencing these symptoms by 2-3 months of pregnancy.

NO, just because you are not having symptoms now does not mean you are not pregnant.

You might be . You can only confirm with the blood test now.

If you are tensed then get the blood test done right away.

Regards,

Dr. Som MD
