Your period is late, and you have been experiencing a lot of strange symptoms over the past few weeks. You may be hesitant to ask, but you can’t shake the question “Am I…pregnant?”.

Early pregnancy symptoms can include:

  • Missed period
  • Breast changes/tenderness
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Weight gain or loss
  • Frequent urination
  • Appetite changes

Before jumping to conclusions, it is important to know that there are a lot of factors outside of being pregnant that can affect the timing of your period (i.e. stress, rapid weight change, diet, or simply being sick). It is also important to keep in mind that classic PMS symptoms can often resemble those of early pregnancy. The only way to know for sure is to take a pregnancy test.

You don’t need to spend a lot of money to get a fancy pregnancy test. You can get an affordable pregnancy test at the Dollar store or you could come to GATEWAY for a FREE diagnostic pregnancy test administered by a medical professional at one of our 3 locations across the Greater Triangle Area.
