When your period is late, it is common to wonder if you are pregnant. A pregnancy may not be in your plan, and you may be scared and anxious. You may even take a home pregnancy test. If it shows positive, you need to discover your options and decide what is the next best step for you.
BIRTHLINE OF COLORADO IS YOUR NEXT STEP
A late period is usually one of the earliest signs of pregnancy, but it can be late for other reasons. Changes in hormones, rapid weight gain or loss, and stress can all cause a late period. We understand your concern. You should consider if you are experiencing any of the other early symptoms of pregnancy.
EARLY PREGNANCY SYMPTOMS
Women experience pregnancy differently. Some women have symptoms and some have none at all. A missed period is the only pregnancy symptom that all women experience. Other common pregnancy symptoms may include:
- Tender, swollen breasts
- Nausea with or without vomiting
- Increased urination
- Food aversions
If you think you may be pregnant, your next best step is to contact us for a no-cost pregnancy testing at Birthline of Colorado. It’s safe, free and confidential.
YOU MAY NOT BE PREGNANT
According to the Mayo Clinic, up to 20% of known pregnancies end in a natural miscarriage. It’s possible to have been pregnant, miscarried, and still have pregnancy hormones in your body for days or even weeks afterward. You could get a false-positive result if you take an at-home pregnancy test. That is just another reason why contacting Birthine is your next best step… you need to be certain.
