Are You Pregnant?

We know how scary an unplanned pregnancy can seem. You may be in shock about the news and be second-guessing your results.

Whether you’ve taken an at-home pregnancy test or your period is late, there’s always a possibility you aren’t actually pregnant. 

Common Pregnancy Symptoms

Did you miss your period, or are you experiencing symptoms like…

  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Tender breasts
  • Frequent Urination
  • Mood changes

According to the Mayo Clinic, these are all common pregnancy symptoms that may point to pregnancy.

Get Answers About Your Pregnancy

Just because your period is late doesn’t necessarily mean you’re pregnant. There may be a change in your monthly menstrual cycle due to stress, a hormonal imbalance, or the medications you’re taking. 

According to the Mayo Clinic, up to 20% or more pregnancies end in a natural miscarriage. Even if you have miscarried, it’s still possible to get a positive result on a pregnancy test because your body still has the pregnancy hormones.

Following a pregnancy test, an ultrasound is essential to determine potential pregnancy complications like miscarriage or others.
