Pregnancy Symptoms

Before you get caught up worrying about being pregnant, let’s be sure you are.  A missed period is the most common indication, but it doesn’t always mean you are pregnant.

Common Pregnancy Symptoms:

  • Late period
  • Tender or swollen breasts
  • Frequent urination
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Fatigue
  • Lightheadedness or fainting
  • Backaches
  • Food cravings or aversions
  • Darkening of the nipples

How accurate is the test?

Our tests are laboratory quality and detect the HCG pregnancy hormone as early as 7-10 days after conception.  The test manufacturer states test results are 99% accurate.

 

Can I have a retest if my test is negative and my period doesn’t start?

Yes, you may be rescheduled for another test.  The HCG hormone doubles every couple of days during the first three months of pregnancy, so the hormone may be more easily detected on a subsequent test.

 

What if I have a second negative test result and have not started my period?

If you continue to have negative pregnancy test results and you continue to miss periods, you should see your health care provider.   There are many possible causes for an interruption in your menstrual cycle.  If you need resources for health care, our Center can provide you with referrals (330-825-1900).
