Could I Be . . .?

Pregnancy can mean different things to different people. Whether planned or unplanned, first time or fourth, it pays to breathe and take some time understanding your situation. Check out Claris Health's list of things to consider if you think you might be pregnant.

 
 

1. A missed period doesn't always means you're pregnant.

Missed Period

There are several possible reasons for a missed period. There are lifestyle factors, such as excessive stress or overloading on caffeine. Others may be affected by certain medical conditions, which is why confirming your pregnancy early with an accurate pregnancy test is so important.

 

2. Home tests can be accurate (and you should go get one), but . . .

Pregnancy Test

At-home pregnancy tests may be accurate indicators of a positive pregnancy. However, here's what they can't do:

  • Confirm the viability (health) of your pregnancy
  • Confirm the location of your pregnancy (intrauterine vs. ectopic)
  • Confirm how far along you are in your pregnancy
 

3. Accurate testing with a medical professional is key.

Medical Testing

What do missed periods, nausea, and changes in breasts have in common? These symptoms are the three most common initial indications of a pregnancy. It is also important to note that each of these symptoms may be a sign of something other than pregnancy, which is why it is so important to get checked out by a medical professional.

 

4. If you are pregnant, know what ALL of your options are.

Pregnancy Options

If you are pregnant, even if you weren't intending to be, you owe it to yourself to know what all of your options are. Assuming that the pregnancy goes well, you will have the choice to parent, to place for adoption, or to terminate. Walk with Claris Health to learn about these options so that you can own the outcome of your decision.
