Am I Pregnant

Signs & Symptoms of Pregnancy

Missed Period?

Wondering if you could be pregnant?

Am I pregnant is a question that can cause nervousness and anxiety whether it is planned or unplanned. A missed or late period can happen for many reasons aside from pregnancy. Knowing your body and your circumstances can be helpful.

  • Weight Changes
  • Medications
  • Illness
  • Profound Stress
  • Extreme Exercise
  • Unusual Changes in Your Schedule

However, if you are concerned you may be pregnant, schedule a free lab-quality pregnancy test to find out for sure.  Many people have irregular periods and are unsure when to expect them. If that is you, waiting 17 days after you last had sexual intercourse to test for pregnancy can usually give you an accurate result.  

You do not have to face this uncertainty alone. Let the Pregnancy Help Center staff come alongside you to give you resources and information to guide you through this process. If your test is positive, PHC offers free ultrasound services to date your pregnancy and also tells you if your pregnancy is viable (capable of progressing under normal conditions).

Please refer to our blog for more detailed information about how soon a pregnancy test can be taken.
