Do you think you might be pregnant? Are you having symptoms or just feel pregnant? Maybe you’ve even taken a test at home that was positive. How can you tell if you really are?
Many of the symptoms of pregnancy are the same for starting a period. Your symptoms could even be caused by a nonviable pregnancy. This is a pregnancy that is not capable of developing into a normal pregnancy.
Examples of nonviable pregnancy conditions that may cause pregnancy symptoms or give a positive pregnancy test result:
- Blighted Ovum
- Molar Pregnancy
- Ectopic Pregnancy (a potentially life-threatening condition where the pregnancy is in the fallopian tube or elsewhere – not in the uterus)
- Impending miscarriage
Free Walk-In Pregnancy Tests AND Free Limited, Non-Diagnostic Ultrasounds
We offer free, confidential pregnancy tests. They are self-administered urine tests that deliver quick results and are most accurate after a missed period. The tests detect the presence of the hormone hCG once it reaches a level of 20 mIU/ml or higher. This level is typically present around 2 weeks after ovulation, or 4 weeks after your last menstrual period.
You may be experiencing some or all of these symptoms. Taking a test is the quickest and earliest way to know if you could be pregnant. Come into our office to take a free and confidential pregnancy test. Just walk in, no appointment necessary, and ask us about a FREE Ultrasound.
So the test was positive. Now what?
Even with a positive pregnancy test you still need to confirm that you are in a viable pregnancy. The most accurate way to do this is with an ultrasound. Click here to get more information about getting a free limited, non-diagnostic ultrasound.
