Headaches and could be preggy

Hi Doctor,

Usually just before my period, I get a headache and I have always put it down to hormones. My period is always regualr. However i am now 7 days late, tender breasts etc, but i have a constant headache for the last 2 weeks.

Do hormones when you are preggy cause headaches like this and what do I do about it??

I have bought a home preggy test which I will do today, but I am quite concerned about the headaches.

Thank You.

Headaches are fairly common in early pregnancy. Check the pregnancy test.

Best wishes

Thanks Polkels!

Congrats on being preggie. How long did the headaches last for? How long after you missed your period did you test positive?
