You're not pregnant. It's just...
Here is a review of other symptoms of pregnancy and their possible causes:
Lower Backaches: This could be explained by pending menstruation, stress, strains, injury, poor sleeping habits, or improper lifting.
Headaches: Alternative causes include dehydration (common), caffeine (common), withdrawals, pending menstruation, eye strain, stress, and other ailments.
Frequent Urination: Some alternative explanations include urinary tract infections and diabetes, both of which would warrant consulting your primary care physician regarding treatment. Other potential causes include an increase in liquid intake or the use of diuretics.
Spotting: Spotting or light bleeding could be caused by pending menstruation, altered menstruation, change in hormonal birth control, infection, or an abrasion from intercourse.
Food Cravings or Aversions: This symptom might be attributed to poor diet, lack of nutrients, stress, depression, anxiety, certain illnesses, or pending menstruation.
Darkening of Areolas: This pregnancy symptom has fewer alternative causes. However, it could be the result of a hormonal imbalance or the residual effects of a previous pregnancy.
As you can see, each of the signs of pregnancy can be explained by other causes. If you are experiencing pregnancy symptoms, it is best to wait until you miss your period before taking a pregnancy test.
