Am I Pregnant?
- Have you missed your period?
- Are you having any pregnancy symptoms?
- Maybe you've been trying and you're wondering, "Am I Pregnant?"
For most of us women the first obvious sign of pregnancy is a missed period. Although it is normal for some women to miss a period on occasion, especially during times of stress, while taking birth control pills and while breastfeeding.
Some women may also experience break through bleeding around the time of the next expected period, this is also known as implantation bleeding.
There are a few women who will actually have a period throughout their pregnancy, although this is rare, it can happen.
Some other signs of pregnancy may include:
With this in mind you ask again...Am I Pregnant?
Knowing when your last menstral cycle was can help determine if your period is "late".
If you have been having unprotected sex and may suspect that you are pregnant, the first day you miss your period is the official day you can take a home pregnancy test.
These tests measure the levels of human chorionic gonadotropin, better known as hCG. This is a hormone that is secreted during pregnancy in your urine. The amount of hCG each test can detect varies widely.
Sometimes if your baby implants a little later than usual you can get a 'false negative'.
A negative result that is later shown to be an actual pregnancy is usually the result of the test being performed too early. A positive result that later turns out that the woman is not pregnant is usually the result of a very early miscarriage.
With a pregnancy blood test your healthcare provider can find out if you are pregnant as early as 9 days after your baby is conceived. The blood test measures the hCG level in your blood. Although it may take longer for some women to show the hCG in her blood depending on conception time and implantation. Blood tests are the most accurate when testing for pregnancy.
If you do suspect your pregnant and your period is due, you can always go and purchase an at home pregnancy test. If you are pregnant you can also use our pregnancy calculator and timeline to determine your approximate due date.
