Whenever you have sex, there is always a chance for pregnancy. During pregnancy, your body goes through many changes.
Some common symptoms of early pregnancy include:
- Missed period
- Breast tenderness
- Frequent urination
Having one, some, or even all of these symptoms doesn’t mean you are pregnant, but may be an indication of pregnancy. Women occasionally experience an inaccurate pregnancy test, or the result of the test may be unclear. If you have questions concerning your pregnancy test, or if you think you might be pregnant, we’re here to help and listen.
Pregnancy tests check for a hormone called hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) that is produced by the embryo during pregnancy. The longer you wait to take the test, the more accurate it becomes. It is best to wait until your first missed period before taking a pregnancy test. You can test sooner, but you may need to take a confirming pregnancy test later.
If you think you may be pregnant, feel free to contact us for an appointment to take a free and confidential pregnancy test. We will answer your questions and provide you with the help you need.
