Am I Pregnant?
It’s true that a late period is often an indication you’re pregnant, but it can also be caused by other health issues too. For instance, your period can be late if you’re under a great deal of stress, you’ve recently lost or gained a lot of weight, you have a hormone imbalance, or you’re on certain medications. Take a closer look at some of the other early pregnancy symptoms and see if any of these seem familiar.
Just as every woman is unique so is her pregnancy experience. We recommend you get confirmation about your pregnancy with a free pregnancy test from A Choice for Women.
How Does a Pregnancy Test Work?
It’s very simple. When the fertilized egg implants in your uterus, your body produces a hormone called hCG, human chorionic gonadotropin. A pregnancy test detects the amount of hCG hormone in your urine and bloodstream. For there to be enough hCG to be detected, a urine test has to be taken at a certain time. The process is quick and painless.
What If I’ve Already Taken a Home Pregnancy Test?
Over-the-counter pregnancy tests can be accurate. The problem is usually user error. Either the test is taken too soon or the directions weren’t followed closely enough.
How Soon Should I Take A Pregnancy Test?
How soon you take a pregnancy test depends on your normal menstrual cycle. If your period is fairly regular (every 28 to 32 days), you can take a pregnancy test a day or two after your missed period.
If your periods are irregular, it’s best to wait for at least 5 to 6 days after your missed period.
What Do I Do Next?
First, we recommend you verify the results of your home test with a free and confidential pregnancy test at A Choice for Women. If you receive a positive result again, it’s time to have an ultrasound. We offer free and confidential ultrasounds too. Take advantage of all we have to offer. After all, you have nothing to lose!
