The signs Are There… Could it Be?
Maybe your period is late this month, or you suspect you might be pregnant. Maybe you do feel more tired than usual or just plain nauseous.
Whatever the case might be, we can help you find out for sure.
It’s easy to both overlook and overemphasize potential symptoms. We tend to zoom in on minor signs and symptoms when nervous or ignore manifestations that could overlap with PMS or the stomach flu.
The Mayo Clinic lists the following as common early signs and symptoms of pregnancy:
- Missed period
- Tender, swollen breasts
- Nausea with or without vomiting
- Increased urination
Other signs and symptoms include moodiness, bloating, light spotting, cramping, constipation, food aversions, and nasal congestion.
Experiencing symptoms doesn’t determine whether or not you’re pregnant. If you are wondering, it’s time for pregnancy testing.
How Does Pregnancy Testing Work?
Pregnancy testing works by checking for the presence of a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin, known as hCG. Produced by the placenta, this hormone can be found in a pregnant woman’s blood or urine about 10-11 days after conception.
Since it takes time for hCG to build in a woman’s body, taking a pregnancy test after your first missed period can better ensure an accurate result. However, some tests are more sensitive than others and can deliver accurate results sooner.
At Evany Clinic, we offer medical-grade pregnancy testing with 99% accuracy. Our tests can detect possible pregnancy as early as 7 days after conception. Schedule a no-cost appointment to confirm your pregnancy today. We’ll provide a free ultrasound if you receive a positive result.
I Tested Positive at Home… What now?
If you had a positive home test, the reality of pregnancy could start to set in for you. What does this mean for your future? How do you feel about it?
Those questions might swirl around in your mind.
Regardless of how you feel or your situation, you have three pregnancy options: parenting, abortion, and adoption.
