Unsure If You’re Pregnant? 

It can be difficult to know if you’re really pregnant. Even after taking a pregnancy test, there can be room for error in the results.  

Learning about the symptoms can be helpful, but it won’t confirm a pregnancy. Other conditions can cause you to experience similar signs and symptoms, so you may need to take other steps to be sure that you are pregnant.

More About Pregnancy Tests And Ultrasounds

It’s typically best practice to take a pregnancy test after missing your period. However, sometimes pregnancy tests can produce an accurate result before then. These tests are designed to detect a pregnancy hormone called Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, or hCG for short. This hormone is produced quickly after conception.

Once enough of the hormone has built up in the body, a pregnancy test can be used and, if the hormone is detected, will produce a positive result.

Ultrasounds are the next step in confirming a pregnancy. These devices can tell you:

  • Viability of the pregnancy
  • Location of the pregnancy
  • Gestational age of the pregnancy

Sometimes, usually not due to anything the woman has done, a pregnancy can end in a miscarriage. An ultrasound can reveal this and can help to monitor the process and ensure the body has passed the pregnancy tissue without complication.

Understanding where the pregnancy is located is important to prevent the complications that come with an ectopic pregnancy, which can be life-threatening to the woman.

Lastly, knowing the gestational age of the pregnancy is important to understand what options are available to you. Not all types of abortions are recommended after a certain number of weeks.
