Pregnancy Symptoms

In addition to a missed period, the earliest symptoms of pregnancy might include:

       Nausea with or without vomiting

       Tender, swollen breasts

       Increased urination

       Fatigue

       Darkening of the nipples

       Lightheadedness or fainting

       Food aversions or cravings

       Bloating

 

Unfortunately, these signs and symptoms are not unique to pregnancy and likewise you can be pregnant without experiencing any of these signs and symptoms.  If you have been sexually active and are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to take a pregnancy test and if positive, confirm the viability of the pregnancy with an ultrasound.  You can do this.  We will help.  

We will provide you with a FREE lab-certified pregnancy test with immediate results.

Our tests are over 99% accurate.  The test is laboratory quality and will detect the hCG pregnancy hormone as early as 7 days after conception or 21 to 24 days after the first day or your last period. 

Pregnancy symptoms differ from woman to woman and pregnancy to pregnancy; however, one of the most significant symptoms for pregnancy is a delayed or missed period

What about home test results & false negatives?
Home pregnancy tests are designed to tell if your urine or blood contains a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG).    In some situations, you can get a false negative.  This means you’re pregnant but the home test says you are not.   
Here are some of the reasons you might get a negative result even when you are pregnant:

       The test is past its expiration date.

       You took the test the wrong way.

       You tested too soon.

       Your urine is too diluted because you consumed large amounts of fluid right before the test.

       You are taking certain medications, for example but not limit to – diuretics or antihistamines.
