Understanding how pregnancy tests function is an essential aspect of your health. Pregnancy symptoms can be indicative of other conditions, so your best option is to take advantage of pregnancy testing and confirm your suspicions. 

There’s no need to worry about paying for services at Women’s Care Center Parkersburg. We understand this may be a stressful time, and we’re here to alleviate some of the burden. 

At-Home Pregnancy Testing

Some women experience common symptoms like a missed period, while others don’t have any pregnancy signs. Don’t leave your health up to chanceget the answers you need. If you do have symptoms, these are the most common ones:

  • Missed Period
  • Fatigue
  • Frequent urination
  • Nausea with or without vomiting
  • Tender, swollen breasts
  • Constipation
  • Nasal congestion
  • Food aversions
  • Moodiness 
  • Bloating
  • Cramping

These symptoms can come from illnesses, stress, or common health conditions. For many women, the first step is to utilize at-home pregnancy testing to get an initial result. You can find at-home kits at the grocery store or pharmacy. 

Blood and urine-based pregnancy testing detect hCG or human chorionic gonadotropin, a hormone present during pregnancy. Follow the instructions carefully and test a few days after your missed period or several weeks after sexual intercourse. 

Regardless of your result, it’s best to confirm at a doctor’s office or local pregnancy center. False negatives can occur as sometimes testing is performed too early or incorrectly. You will also want to learn about all your pregnancy options: parenting, adoption and abortion.
