How Do I Know If I am Pregnant?

While the most common symptom of pregnancy is a missed period, symptoms will vary because every body and every pregnancy is different. If you are pregnant, you might also experience the following symptoms:

  • Nausea
  • Food Aversions
  • Bloating/Cramping
  • Darkening of the Nipples
  • Fatigue
  • Mood Swings
  • Frequent Urination
  • Spotting

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, especially a missed period, it is important to take a pregnancy test. At Boston Center for Pregnancy Choices, we can provide you with a free lab quality pregnancy test.

How Does the Pregnancy Test Work?

Our pregnancy tests are able to detect HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin), the hormone released during pregnancy as early as seven days after conception or 21-24 days after the first day of your last period. Tests are self-administered at our center and we will discuss the results with you immediately following the test.
