How do I know?
‘Is it? Isn’t it? I have skipped a period, nights are restless, but I’m not old enough yet! Am I pregnant or has it really started?’ A whirlwind of thoughts with no one to turn to, to share them. Discussing this delicate matter with friends or relatives may feel awkward. Sometimes, we even feel awkward discussing this with our GPs or other healthcare professionals. The days of grinning and bearing it are on the way out. There are no prizes for martyrdom. Talk to your healthcare professional if symptoms persist.
