Are you wondering because your period is late, “Could I be pregnant?” If you are also feeling nauseous and tired, these may be early signs of pregnancy. However, other issues like stress, hormonal changes, diet, and weight gain or loss, can also be reasons to miss a period.

It is even possible you are experiencing a miscarriage. Unfortunately, miscarriages are relatively common. Experts suggest that as many as 1 in 4 known pregnancies ends in a miscarriage. You can continue feeling pregnancy symptoms even after a miscarriage for a few days or even weeks.
