What Are the Early Signs of Pregnancy?
The first sign of pregnancy is usually a late period, but a change in your monthly cycle can happen for other reasons. If you’ve recently had sex and your period is late, you might be pregnant. See if these other pregnancy symptoms seem familiar.
According to the Mayo Clinic, these are some of the earliest symptoms of pregnancy.
Each pregnancy experience is unique. Some women feel every symptom immediately, while others don’t experience anything for months.
The best way to determine pregnancy is with our no-cost pregnancy testing. Getting a second opinion is vital even if you’ve taken an at-home test.
We will ensure you take the test correctly and at the right time. Your body needs time to build up the pregnancy hormone known as hCG. A pregnancy test detects hCG in your urine to determine if you’re pregnant.
If you take a pregnancy test too early, your body may not have had enough time to build up the hCG hormone. You will get more accurate results the longer you wait to take the test.
If your periods are pretty regular (every 28 to 30 days), you can take a test a day or two after your missed period. If your monthly cycle is irregular, we recommend waiting 5 to 7 days later than you expected your period to begin.
If you have had a positive at-home pregnancy test, consider taking another one or scheduling a no-cost ultrasound for verification. We’re here to help you get the necessary information to make all your pregnancy decisions.
