Doctor

A:   I do understand your concern, based on symptoms alone it is really difficult for a doctor to say whether you are pregnant or not. Pregnancy tests are pretty standard. Since your periods arn't due for another two weeks, I would recommend that you put off testing until you have crossed your due date. If a test is done too early, the results may not be accurate. I wish you well, take care.
