Could I Be Pregnant?
Any time you have sex, there is always a chance for pregnancy. Many women assume if they use contraception, they cannot get pregnant. But no form of contraception is 100% effective.
Depending on your cycle, the chance of getting pregnant increases and decreases at different times of the month. Since sperm can live several days in a woman’s body, it is difficult to determine your risk on any day.
Every woman experiences pregnancy differently. One woman may feel several pregnancy symptoms immediately, while another may not feel any for several months. Other health issues can even cause some common pregnancy symptoms.
Common Early Pregnancy Symptoms
A missed period is the most common sign of pregnancy, but there are others. Do any of these sound familiar?
- Tender and swollen breasts
- Nausea, with or without vomiting
- Increased urination
- Fatigue (tiredness)
- Light spotting
- Food cravings or aversions
Pregnancy is not the only reason a woman might miss her period. Stress, a hormonal imbalance, excessive exercise, or rapid weight gain or loss can all cause a change in a woman’s menstrual cycle.
How Can I Find Out If I’m Pregnant?
If your period is late and you’re wondering if you’re pregnant, start by taking a pregnancy test. Only a medical professional can accurately diagnose pregnancy, and a pregnancy test only indicates the possibility of pregnancy. It can’t confirm it.
You need an ultrasound to confirm if you have a viable pregnancy. Contact us to get a free and confidential pregnancy test. If you’ve already taken a home test, we can retest to confirm your results.
