Are you wondering if you’re pregnant? There are physical signs such as a late period that could be symptoms of pregnancy, but it’s best to start with a pregnancy test. Pregnancy testing at Willowbrook is a no-cost service. 

Take a look at some of the other early pregnancy symptoms you might experience.

Is a Late Period the Only Early Sign of Pregnancy? 

Other reasons than pregnancy can cause your period to be late, but often, it is one of the first signs. It’s also possible to experience light spotting, which can occur when the fertilized egg attaches to the lining of the uterus. 

Changes in pregnancy hormones are the reason for most of your pregnancy symptoms. Hormonal changes are said to cause the following symptoms:

  • Tender, swollen breasts
  • Nausea with or without vomiting
  • Fatigue
  • Moodiness

Other Pregnancy Symptoms:

  • Increased urination
  • Bloating
  • Mild cramping

What if I Don’t Experience These Symptoms?

Women’s pregnancies are as unique as they are. Some women experience all the symptoms immediately, while others don’t feel hardly any. 

Confirm your pregnancy with no-cost pregnancy testing at Willowbrook. If your test is positive, we recommend a limited obstetrical ultrasound.

Why do I Need an Ultrasound?

Experts report as many as 26% of pregnancies may end in a natural miscarriage. It is entirely possible to get a positive pregnancy test result days or weeks following a miscarriage. 

To verify if your pregnancy is viable (developing) or if you have miscarried, you need an ultrasound. Not only do you learn about viability, but you also find out how far along you are in your pregnancy and its location. 

Although rare, a pregnancy that forms outside the uterus (known as an ectopic pregnancy) can be life-threatening. You will need to seek further medical care.

How Can Willowbrook Help Me?

In addition to our complimentary pregnancy services, such as pregnancy testing and ultrasound, we also provide no-cost STD testing for those with a positive pregnancy test. Many STDs do not have immediately recognizable symptoms, so people often put off getting tested. Don’t skip this critical step.

In addition, we can discuss your options for your pregnancy. If it is unexpected, you have choices. Get the facts about all three: abortion, making an adoption plan, or parenting.
