Wondering If You’re Pregnant?

A late period can cause a lot of anxiety. If you’ve recently had unprotected (or even protected) sex and your period is late, you may be pregnant.

A change in your normal menstrual cycle can happen for several reasons. If you have a hormonal imbalance, increased your exercise, started certain medications, or you’re experiencing a lot of stress, your period could be late.

Are you experiencing any of these other early pregnancy symptoms?

Pregnancy Symptoms

Every woman’s pregnancy is different just like every woman. Some women feel every symptom from the beginning, others feel nothing at all. See if any of these symptoms are familiar:

  • Swollen, tender breasts
  • Fatigue
  • Frequent need to urinate
  • Nausea with or without vomiting
  • Light spotting or cramping
  • Food aversions
  • A missed period

Pregnancy Confirmation

Even if you’ve taken an at-home pregnancy test, it’s important to confirm your results. Over-the-counter tests are reliable but anxious women can take them too early or incorrectly. Get your results confirmed with a free and highly accurate pregnancy test from Care Net.

One of our peer counselors will meet with you one-on-one and guide you through the test. Your results will remain completely confidential. You can be sure our tests will give you reliable results.

The Test Is Positive. Now What?

Believe it or not, a positive pregnancy test result is just the beginning of the information you need. Your next step is to get an ultrasound scan. Our center offers ultrasounds free of charge.

Why do you need an ultrasound? According to the Mayo Clinic, up to 20% of known pregnancies end in a natural miscarriage. Because your body needs time to adjust from no longer being pregnant, you can still get a positive result on a pregnancy test. Only an ultrasound can fully verify your pregnancy.
