Common symptoms of early pregnancy include amenorrhoea (missed period), morning sickness and breast changes.
While pregnancy pills should be used as an emergency measure, rather than an alternative to using contraception, it is essential that the morning after pill is available promptly if a female feels there is a pregnancy risk.
High blood pressure is one of the common medical signs of pregnancy, affecting an estimated 6 percent to 8 percent of all pregnancies.

Women who take antidepressants during the final trimester of pregnancy increase the risk of "neonatal behavioral syndrome," a constellation of symptoms and behaviors largely related to drug withdrawal or side effects.
The symptoms of pregnancy are occurring due to the hormonal changes that happen during pregnancy. Since the pregnancy symptoms can be also caused by stress or illness, the blood test is one of the best ways to confirm the suspected pregnancy.
Stillbirth is the death of a baby after the 20th week of pregnancy, but before delivery. The baby may have died in the uterus weeks or hours before labor, or during labor.
A miscarriage, also called spontaneous abortion, is the spontaneous ending of a pregnancy before the fetus is mature enough to survive outside the uterus. About one-third of all pregnancies end in miscarriage.
