Your first step is to find out if you are actually pregnant. A missed period is the most common indication, but it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re pregnant.
Pregnancy tests are an indicator of pregnancy, not a confirmation.
Pregnancy tests can provide invalid results, and false positives can still happen. Hormonal changes, stress, diet, and exercise all influence your cycle and reproductive health. Home tests can produce incorrect results for other reasons as well.
Your Next Steps
If your pregnancy test is positive, it is important to see if your pregnancy is occurring within your uterus, if there is a heartbeat, and then determine how far along you are.
We provide free pregnancy testing and confirmation services at our center.
