Are You Wondering If You’re Pregnant?
A late period is usually the first sign of pregnancy, but a change in your menstrual cycle can happen for other reasons. If your period is late and you think you might be pregnant, see if these other pregnancy symptoms seem familiar.
Early Pregnancy Symptoms
According to the Mayo Clinic, these are some of the earliest symptoms of pregnancy.
- Tender, swollen breasts
- Nausea with or without vomiting
- Increased urination
- Light spotting
- Food aversions
Just like every woman, each pregnancy experience is unique. Some women face every symptom immediately, while others don’t feel anything for months.
Get Accurate Test Results
You can have a late period because you’re under a lot of stress, ramped up your exercise routine, or quickly gained or lost weight. However, if you’re sexually active and have missed a period, you’re likely pregnant. The best way to determine pregnancy is with our no-cost pregnancy testing.
Only a physician or other appropriate healthcare professional can confirm that you are pregnant. At Queen City Pregnancy Resource Center, licensed medical personnel always conduct our pregnancy tests. A nurse guides you through the test to ensure you take it correctly and get the most accurate results.
Your Next Step
If you have a positive pregnancy test, you may require an ultrasound. We offer no-cost limited obstetrical ultrasounds onsite.
A pregnancy test only indicates the possibility of a pregnancy. You need an ultrasound to confirm if your pregnancy is viable with a detectable heartbeat. Ultrasound also reveals how far along you are in your pregnancy and its location.
Eligibility criteria apply to receive your no-cost ultrasound. Check with us to see if you qualify. Once you confirm your pregnancy, we can discuss your options, depending on your situation.
We do not use ultrasound to determine gender or diagnose abnormalities.
