Whether planned or unplanned, there are a lot of things to consider during pregnancy. You should know what to expect.

Young Adults

If you think you are pregnant, pay close attention to your body. Because everyone is different, you may experience different symptoms that indicate pregnancy. The most obvious early symptom that prompts most women to get a pregnancy test is a missed period.

Symptoms of pregnancy can often include:

  • Spotting and cramping a few days after conception
  • Tiredness
  • Feelings of nausea
  • Tenderness in breasts
  • Frequent urination
  • Mood swings

If you have these symptoms and your period is late, buy an over the counter pregnancy test, contact your OB-GYN, primary care physician, or Planned Parenthood. The only way to know for sure is to see your doctor for a pregnancy test.


Young adults have twice as many unplanned pregnancies as teens.
