Thanks for using the forum.

I am sorry you are not feeling well. My recommendation would be that you see your doctor. While all those symptoms can be related to pregnancy, they can also be symptoms of illness.

Pregnancy tests check for the presence of a hormone hCG in the urine. To be accurate there has to be an adequate level of the hormone to be detected. They are most accurate 1 week after your missed period. If your period is regular, and you have missed it, your doctor can also do a blood test to check for pregnancy. The blood test can detect a lower level of the hCG.

I hope this helps. Feel better soon.
