PMS or Pregnancy: how to differentiate the symptoms

The symptoms of Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) or Pregnancy are very similar, so some women may find it difficult to tell them apart, especially when they have never been pregnant before.

However, a good way to tell if a woman is pregnant is to look for morning sickness that only occurs early in pregnancy. In addition, PMS symptoms last between 5 to 10 days until menstruation begins, while the first symptoms of pregnancy can last anywhere from 2 weeks to several months.

However, to correctly identify if the woman has PMS or pregnancy, it is recommended to take a pregnancy test or make an appointment with the gynecologist.
