what are the difference between pms and pregnancy symptoms

Customer Question

what are the difference between pms and pregnancy symptoms?

Pregnancy symptoms often include nausea, breast tenderness, fatigue, and frequent urination, and they generally don't start until after a missed period.

Pms symptoms can include many different symptoms, but can include breast tenderness, irritability, depression, fluid retention, bloating, and mood swings. They can occur from midcycle until the period starts, and are not generally associated with a missed period. I hope that's helpful.
