Am I pregnant?

You've missed your cycle (period), your breasts are sore, and you're feeling queasy. Could you be pregnant? Clear up any doubt.

Couple looking at a pregnancy testOften, the easiest way to find out is by taking a home pregnancy test.

If your home pregnancy test is positive, call to schedule a prenatal appointment right away. Visit our facility directory for phone numbers.

If your test is negative, it is still possible that you may actually be pregnant. You should repeat the test in 1 week if your period has not started. If the repeat test is negative, you are probably not pregnant, but you should talk to your doctor about why you are not having periods.
