Doctor

A:   Symptoms of vomiting, increased frequency of urination and sore breasts are very unspecific and though they could be signs of pregnancy, they could be due to many other conditions. They only way for you to find out whether you are pregnant or not is by doing a home pregnancy test. These tests are pretty standard nowadays and are fairly accurate. However the best time to take them is after a week or more of a missed period. Do the test early morning with the first urine sample. I hope I have answered your question, take care.
