We keep getting asked to provide a free online pregnancy test for our members.¬† Whilst we can’t produce a virtual reality one quite yet, we have put together a free online pregnancy quiz of 12 questions which should give you a pretty good idea of whether or not you are pregnant.
This quiz is useful for women who are asking themselves questions like:
- My period is late – am I pregnant?
- I had a negative pregnancy test result – but could I still be pregnant?
- I think I might be pregnant – should I buy a pregnancy test kit?
- I think I’m pregnant – what shall I do?
Online Pregnancy Quiz
Read through the following pregnancy signs and symptoms, taking note of those which apply to you. You might like to print out this page and then place a tick in the relevant boxes.
|Tick||Pregnancy Signs and Symptoms|
||Is your period late or overdue?¬†If you are usually regular in your menstrual cycle and you find that your period has not come on time, you may be pregnant. Sometimes your period can be late due to stress or illness – but the later your period is, the more likely you are to be pregnant (i.e. if you have completely missed your period as it is now 4 or 5 weeks late, then you are more likely to be pregnant).|
||Are your breasts sore?¬†For many women the first sign of pregnancy is breasts that are sore, tingling, tender or uncomfortable.¬† Your breasts can also start to increase in size very quickly, so that your bras start feeling tight.|
||Do you feel nauseous?¬†Many women suffer terribly from nausea or vomiting in the early stages of pregnancy.¬† The term “morning sickness’ is not strictly accurate, as some women feel sick in the afternoon, or the evening, or all day! This symptom may vary in severity from slight nausea to non-stop vomiting.|
||Are your nipples changing colour?¬†As well as sore breasts, you may find that your aereola – the area around your nipples – begins to darken in colour, and may increase in size.|
||Do you have a funny taste in your mouth?¬†Some women complain that when they are pregnant they have a funny or strange taste in their mouth. This is sometimes described as a metallic taste and can make food or drinks that you previously liked taste unpleasant.¬† For example, many women cannot tolerate the taste of coffee or wine when they are pregnant.|
||Do you crave strange foods?¬†For some women being pregnant brings with it some unusual food cravings – perhaps for foods they don’t usually like.¬† Some common examples of pregnancy cravings are ice cream, pickles or gherkins, bananas or chocolate…or even all of the above combined!|
||Do some odours make you feel ill?¬†If you are already feeling nauseous, you may find that there are some smells that will make you feel even worse!¬† Some common examples include cigarette smoke, car exhaust fumes, raw meat at the butchers, coffee, fatty cooking smells, some perfumes or cleaning products.|
||Do you have a congested feeling in your pelvis?¬†Some women find they have a congested feeling in their uterus (womb) or lower part of their tummy.¬† This can be a very confusing symptom, as it can feel very much like premenstrual bloating.|
||Do you have spotting or bleeding?¬†This symptom can be really confusing, as it can appear as if your period has started.¬† Some women experience spotting or light bleeding in early pregnancy that can look like a period, but isn’t.|
||Do you have to keep peeing?¬†Many women find they need to pass urine frequently. They find that they are going to the toilet a lot more – which can be particularly annoying at night!|
||Do you feel really tired all the time?¬†It is common to feel very tired during the first trimester (first 12 weeks) of your pregnancy.¬† Many women need to go to bed early, find themselves yawning a lot, and take an afternoon nap whenever they can get one!|
||Are your clothes getting tight?¬†If you are more than “a little bit pregnant” – i.e. perhaps 10 to12 weeks or more, then you may find that the waistline on your skirts and trousers is getting tight.|
