8 Natural Signs That Show You Are Pregnant Without Taking A Pregnancy Test

There are women who get pregnant and never notice it until, they go into labour. There are also, women who get pregnant without realizing they are pregnant until, their stomach starts protruding. Many people including women, associate seized menstruation with pregnancy. Associating seized menstruation with pregnancy is wrong because, some pregnant women still have their periods during the duration of their pregnancy.

Women who are, sexually active, can get pregnant even if, they were taking birth control pills or, their partner used a condom. This is because, birth control pills can fail sometimes and condoms can break during intercourse.

The only situation inwhich women who are sexually active cannot get pregnant is if, they have infertility issues or if their partners are impotent or, sterile.
