Pregnancy Symptoms

Don't get caught worrying about being pregnant before you are sure. A missed period is the most common indication, but it doesn't necessarily 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

 

Birthright will provide you with a free lab-certified pregnancy test. You will have the results during your appointment.

Call us today to schedule a confidential appointment.

How accurate is the test?

Our tests are laboratory rated. They can detect the hCG pregnancy hormone as early as 7 days after conception or 21 to 24 days after the first day of your last period. The test is over 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 2.2 days during the first three months of pregnancy.

Should I see a doctor if I have a second negative test and have not started my period?

If you have concerns about missed periods and your pregnancy test continues to be negative, you should see your health care provider for assessment. If you need resources for health care, Birthright can provide you referrals.
