Typical Pregnancy Signs

  • Missed Period
  • Nausea and/or Vomiting
  • Tender or Swollen Breasts
  • Frequent Urination
  • Fatigue/Tiredness
  • Change in Appetite
  • Weight Changes

Pregnancy signs alone are not enough to verify a pregnancy. Many females will have a positive pregnancy without any symptoms. And then some women have a number of pregnancy signs but have a negative test. Remember that emotional stresses can also cause pregnancy related symptoms. If you are having any pregnancy symptoms, contact A Choice to Make for a free pregnancy test. Our tests are laboratory rated and can indentify hCG (the hormone produced in pregnancy) as soon as 7 days after conception or 21 to 24 days after the first day of your last period. The test is over 99% accurate.

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

Emergency Contraception

You have most likely heard about emergency contraception as the morning-after pill, or brands like Plan B or ella. Emergency Contraception is a phrase used for mediations used after sexual activity with the objective of preventing conception. Often emergency contraception is confused with the abortion pill. The abortion pill ends a proven pregnancy where emergency contraception functions to avoid contraception (although it is possible for it to cause a very premature abortion).

If you are considering using emergency contraception, we are here to help. We are only a phone call away.

Telling Others You Are Pregnant

An unplanned pregnancy can cause stress. You may be anxious and uncertain about telling your family, partner, friends, or other people about your pregnancy. Many women are concerned with the following:

  • Your husband or boyfriend doesn’t want the baby but I do
  • I can’t tell my family
  • How will I finish school?
  • How will I continue working?
  • Where will I live?
  • I don’t have medical insurance?
  • I can’t afford a child
  • I’m too young
  • I just had a child, I can’t have another one

We can talk about all these issues. Know that you are not alone in having these feelings and uncertainties. We are here to offer support as well as suggestions to inform others about the pregnancy.

Things to consider

  • What are your specific symptoms?
  • How long have you felt these symptoms?
  • Is your period consistent or sporadic?
  • Have you taken a pregnancy test?
  • Do you know how far along you are?

Thinking through these questions can help you to understand your choices. No matter how you feel about the possibility of a pregnancy, the best first step is to schedule a pregnancy test and become educated on your options.
