Am I pregnant?

That’s probably a question you didn’t expect to ask yourself at this moment. No matter whether your pregnancy is planned or unplanned, being pregnant can be described in different ways such as a journey or adventure even overwhelming.

Does it always mean you’re pregnant if your period is late? Can you get pregnant even if you thought you were protected? We’re here to answer the most important questions.

Early pregnancy symptoms

As a matter of fact, a late period doesn’t necessarily mean you’re pregnant. Your cycle can change because of increased exercise, stress, a hormone imbalance, or certain medications. Pregnancy changes a woman’s body completely, but some women don’t feel any symptoms at all.

See if you have any of these other pregnancy symptoms:

  • Swollen and tender breasts
  • Fatigue
  • An urgency to urinate
  • Feeling nauseous and maybe even vomiting (Morning Sickness)
  • Cramping
  • Spotting

Have you taken a pregnancy test?

A missed period is often the number one sign you’re pregnant. Even if you had protected sex, contraception can fail. Your best bet is to take a pregnancy test.

At the Alexandrina Pregnancy Center, we offer free and confidential pregnancy tests. If your test turns out to be positive, you may qualify for a free ultrasound scan. Our trained staff will walk you through every step of the process.
