Are You Wondering If You Are Pregnant?

If you are sexually active, there is always the potential to become pregnant even if you use contraception. For some women, an unplanned pregnancy is a joyous discovery. For others, it is overwhelming and frightening news.

No matter what you are facing, we want you to know we are here for you. If you’ve recently had unprotected (or even protected) sex and your period is late, it’s time to learn if you are pregnant.

Early Pregnancy Symptoms

Every pregnancy is different because each woman is unique. Some women experience pregnancy symptoms immediately. While others don’t experience any signs for weeks or months.

Here is a list of common early pregnancy symptoms. Do any of these seem familiar for you?

  • A missed period
  • Tender, swollen breasts
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea, with or without vomiting
  • Increased urination

Other potential signs of pregnancy:

  • Moodiness
  • Bloating
  • Light spotting
  • Cramping
  • Constipation
  • Food aversion
  • Nasal congestion

As you can see many of these pregnancy symptoms can be related to other health issues. You can feel tired and nauseous with the flu. A need to urinate more often can be a urinary tract infection. Your period can be late due to stress, increased exercise, rapid weight gain or loss, or hormonal issues.

What Is Your Next Step?

To discover if you are actually pregnant, your first step is to take a pregnancy test. You can either purchase one from a drug store or visit Greene Pregnancy Center for a free and confidential pregnancy test.

However, a pregnancy test only indicates the possibility of pregnancy. If you get a positive result, you want to get a limited obstetrical ultrasound.

An ultrasound detects if your pregnancy is growing or if you have had a miscarriage. It is estimated that over one in four pregnancies ends in a natural miscarriage. You can still get a positive pregnancy test result days or weeks after a miscarriage.
