Your period is late, and now you are wondering if you could be pregnant.
You might be feeling overwhelmed, excited, scared or nervous, all of which are normal emotions to experience. One of the most common signs of pregnancy is a late or missed period. Because every woman is unique, pregnancy symptoms may be different from woman to woman. The best way to determine pregnancy is to take a pregnancy test and visit a doctor to confirm pregnancy.
Early Signs and Symptoms:
- Missed period
- Tender, swollen breasts
- Mood changes
- Light spotting
If you think you may be pregnant and have missed your period, taking a pregnancy test is a good first step. You can visit New Life Pregnancy Center for a free pregnancy test. Our trained staff are available to discuss your pregnancy options with you and provide you with accurate information to assist you in making the healthiest choice.
If you receive a positive pregnancy test and need health insurance, the center staff will provide you with verification of the test result and can help you find a location to apply for Arizona’s free health insurance (AHCCCS). Only your doctor will be able to confirm a pregnancy and provide you with medical advice. If you would like a recommendation for a doctor, the center staff can provide you with information for your area.
Making a Decision:
Most women find out they are pregnant early on, so there is plenty of time to make an informed decision. It is normal to feel overwhelmed, and it can be helpful to talk to someone. If you would like to talk more in-depth about your options, come into your local center and our trained staff will help you as you make your decision.
The following questions can help you process your decision:
- Have I considered all of my options – parenting, adoption, abortion?
- Have I told someone I trust that I’m pregnant?
- Am I aware of the risks associated with each option?
- Do I want to be a parent?
- Would I wonder about my child’s future?
- Do I think my decision will impact me in 1 year? 5 years? 10 years?
- Will my health be affected by the choice I make?
- Am I being forced to choose an option that I don’t agree with?
