Are you experiencing pregnancy symptoms and wondering if you’re pregnant? The waiting game can be difficult. It may be confusing to know how early is too early to take a pregnancy test. We want to share about the right time to take a pregnancy test so you know for sure. There is already enough stress that you are facing, so get informed and move forward with clarity.
Signs of Early Pregnancy
The signs of pregnancy may differ based on the woman, but there are many common symptoms of early pregnancy. Here is a list of the most common pregnancy symptoms:
- Missed period
- Nausea with or without vomiting
- Tender, swollen breasts
- Increased urination
If you are experiencing most of these symptoms, you may be pregnant. In some cases, you may not experience any of these pregnancy symptoms and still be pregnant. Confirm with a pregnancy test to find out today. We know it can be scary, but you don’t have to do it alone.
The Right Time to Take a Pregnancy Test
Pregnancy tests check for the hCG hormone (human chorionic gonadotropin) in your urine. This hormone is only released inside your body when you are pregnant. It is released when a fertilized egg attaches to your uterus.
The best time to take a pregnancy test is one week after your missed period. This will help to avoid inaccurate results when taking a test too early. It takes at least 7-12 days for your body to produce the hCG hormone when you are pregnant.
Visit us at Pregnancy Care Center of Petoskey to receive no-cost pregnancy testing. If you receive a positive pregnancy test, we will schedule you for an ultrasound. Ultrasound goes further than simply confirming you’re pregnant. It reveals how far along you are, the location of your pregnancy, and if it’s a viable pregnancy.
