Welcome to the MOST accurate “Am I Pregnant” quiz. Of course, you can take this one, and then go buy a home pregnancy test, because that’s the best. 🙂
As of course, nothing on here is medical advice, and we recommend you always check with your provider for answers to your specific healthcare questions. 🙂

- Too early to take a test — you should at least be close to the day your period was due, or at least 3-4 weeks since your last period to take a urine test, otherwise it’s just too early!
- They are embarrassed to get them at the store (but I can promise you the cashier won’t remember you)
- They don’t have the cash for them — and if that’s the case, there are a lot of free pregnancy clinics like Planned Parenthood — you can google where to get a pregnancy test and it should show you local results!
Am I Pregnant Quiz
Keep in mind this is based entirely of timing and symptoms. Things like breast tenderness (or changes), implantation bleeding, “feeling pregnant” — even bloody noses… but those can all be symptoms of other things too.
So, even if your chance is 100% — you may not be pregnant. A home pregnancy test is 100% the best plan at this point. I recommend the ones at the dollar store or these online pregnancy tests (they’re available online, you don’t TAKE them online). You can also often get free pregnancy tests at women’s health centers. DO NOT feel like you need to get the expensive, digital first response tests.
The only way to know for sure is to take a pregnancy test after you would have had your period.
Remember that home tests are just as accurate as the test in the doctors office (often the same thing). They provide a very accurate result.
Online Pregnancy Quiz:
And might I also recommend taking a pregnancy test — a real one that actually measures the hormones in your blood/urine. It’s the only true standard, and you MUST confirm the results! This test would have a HIGH ratio of false positives or false negative “test results”.
If you ARE pregnant it is SUPER important that you receive appropriate prenatal care, so be sure to talk to your healthcare provider.
Common Early Pregnancy Symptoms:
As I said above — your period does need to be well over 3-4 weeks ago in order to test your urine, or — frankly, to have pregnancy symptoms. Prior to that the fetus could still be implanting and so small it doesn’t make body changes.
Late periods can happen for a variety of reasons though — here are a few:
- Extra strenuous activity
Remember that just because you have a late period does NOT mean that you are pregnant (but it definitely could be and I’d 100% take a test). Pregnancy hormones shut off your period (but stress, illness or a number of things can also cause a delay in your period).
You have to have sex in order to get pregnant
This just makes sense. Bonus point if it’s unprotected sex.
Birth control is truly meant to protect pregnancy, if you don’t use it — it is more likely, but certainly not always going to happen.
Because of the increased blood flow to your breast tissue your breasts can hurt (sometimes quite a lot) — BUT, it can also be a sign that you’ll start your period soon.
Some women say that their areolas got darker early in pregnancy (but some say that doesn’t happen til’ later on).
Smelling things new/differently
Because of the hormones and increased blood flow, it changes how you smell things. Some smells might be extra annoying — all very normal.
Could also be because your boyfriend/husband DOES smell really bad. 🙂
Because of all the extra blood flow — soft tissues like the membranes in your nose can bleed more easily. I actually have a post all about bloody noses in pregnancy.
Most people know this, but it can also be from the Chinese food you ate last night. If it happens daily, it can certainly be something to consider!
When the fetus/placenta implants (called implantation bleeding) on your uterine wall it can cause some bleeding.
My mom always said she just “knew” she was pregnant… I never had that, but some women do! However, a test is the sure way!
** Keep in mind there are no real OBVIOUS signs of pregnancy — all of these are signs that could or could not be pregnant.
Things that aren’t particularly early signs of pregnancy:
- Mood Swings: These can happen for a variety of reasons.
- Cramping: It can also be a strong sign your period is starting, although some women do cramp quite a lot at implantation.
The most accurate pregnancy symptom:
Is a positive pregnancy test. It really is the only way.
When to take a Pregnancy Test:
You want to take it close to the time you would have missed your period. For most women that will be about 4 weeks from their last period (although all women vary).
If you have irregular periods, wait to take it until 28 days after your last period (if not a bit longer).
Taking a urine pregnancy test too early can lead to a false negative test.
Many pregnant women find that they like to have their hcg levels tested by their provider to make sure they’re increasing. That is a blood test you’d do every few days.
Next Thing After Pregnancy Test
- The first thing would be to confirm with an actual pregnancy test. Even a faint line is a positive result.
- If you are pregnant I have a pregnancy calculator that will show your due date.
- Make sure you’re taking prenatal vitamins for the health of you and your baby
- Make an appointment with a pregnancy provider (or with your general provider if you need a referral)
With all that I hope the results are what YOU are hoping for. Pregnancy can be a hard 2-edged sword. People want it desperately, or not at all. If you think you ARE pregnant, be sure to check out my Pregnancy Calendar.
