The management of pregnancy is a major medical issue and there are various diagnostic concerns. See your doctor for the management of your health during pregnancy.
Undiagnosed Pregnancy. It is rare for a pregnancy to go totally undiagnosed, although it has apparently happened. It is more likely for a woman to fail to identify the pregnancy in its early stages, assuming it is some other medical condition such as irregular periods, skipped period, peri-menopause, and so on.
Not Pregnancy. It is possible that you are not pregnant. Some of the symptoms of pregnancy are also symptoms of other conditions. Other possibilities include:
- Irregular menstruation
- Peri-menopause (Menopause)
