It can be difficult to think straight and figure out what your next move should be, in a potential pregnancy. At Clearway we are here to provide you with some advice on what to do if you think you might be pregnant.
First, write down the dates of your last period as well as the date you were supposed to get your period. There’s a chance you miscounted and you’re actually not late, but if you are, it’s important to have accurate information about your missed period.
As for when you should be concerned, it’s mostly based on your own body. If your period fluctuates, and often comes a few days early or late, give yourself a few extra days to see if you start. If your period typically arrives right on time (to the day), then even a day or two late would be enough to consider the possibility that you might be pregnant.
A pregnancy test would be your next step. If you buy an over the counter urine based test, it may result in a false positive, simply because it may be too early for the test to detect the pregnancy hormones in your body.
