Missing your period can be frightening if you are not planning to become pregnant. However, if you are sexually active, it is possible to become pregnant. It is important to confirm pregnancy early with an accurate pregnancy test. Here are some common signs to indicate if you are pregnant, but please be aware that there are other medical conditions that can cause these symptoms.

  • Missed Periods
  • Spotting
  • Tender Breasts
  • Fatigue/Tiredness
  • Nausea/Morning Sickness
  • Backaches
  • Headaches
  • Frequent Urination
  • Darkening of Nipples
  • Food Cravings or Food Aversions
  • Dizziness

How Many Weeks?

If your pregnancy test is positive at Options for Women, the next step is to determine how far along you may be. You will need to know the first day of your last period even though conception is usually two weeks later. You will be given an estimated due date based on your last menstrual cycle. From there you may qualify for a free limited ultrasound, which will give you a more accurate measurement of the gestational age of the pregnancy. That information can be very helpful as you make a decision because it can tell you what options are available to you.

Free Pregnancy Tests

Options For Women offers free pregnancy tests that are 99% accurate and more sensitive than most over-the-counter tests. If you have a positive pregnancy test at the Center, you may schedule a free limited ultrasound to determine the status of your pregnancy.

What if I Have a Positive Test at Home?

Even if you have a positive test at home, we require you to take a pregnancy test at the Center. Our pregnancy tests are medical quality and more accurate than most home tests and a positive result will allow us to schedule a limited ultrasound.

At Options for Women, we are here to help you confirm your pregnancy with a medical quality pregnancy test and limited ultrasound. All services provided by Options for Women are free and your health information remains private.

Things to Think About

There is a lot to consider before you make a decision about an unexpected pregnancy. The staff at Options for Women can help you answer these and other questions you may have about your pregnancy and your options.

  • Is the pregnancy viable (healthy)?
  • How far along are you?
  • Is the pregnancy in your uterus? Occasionally, the pregnancy is located somewhere else. This is known as an “ectopic” pregnancy.
