When Frustration Takes its Toll
As each day passes and your symptoms remain, you might feel mounting frustration! You might think, “What else could what I’m experiencing be but pregnancy?” Continued negative results can feel even more frustrating and confusing. While false negatives can certainly happen, there are different factors to consider in your quest to determine what’s going on. And, if you haven’t already, there are some solid steps you can take to discover whether you’re really pregnant or not.
As you deal with these difficult emotions, decisions, and potential news, you may find it helpful to find somebody to process all of this with. Some options for support during this time may be a trusted family member or friend, a therapist, a faith leader, or somebody like a pregnancy consultant.
Generally, talking with somebody about the frustration or difficulties you’re facing can really help you feel refreshed and give a new perspective on what might seem to be dragging on. Keeping strong emotions inside for too long can hamper our ability to make decisions clearly or even process new information. You don’t have to face any of these situations by yourself!
The Pregnancy Test
Several factors can undermine the reliability of a pregnancy test. Errors in the administration of the test or missing one step of the instructions can lead to inaccurate results. Or, taking a test too early in pregnancy can yield a false negative as well. Generally, a pregnancy test administered by your doctor or OBGYN will be a medical-grade test. At Avenue, we also offer free, medical-grade pregnancy tests that show accurate results just ten days after possible conception. If you are still concerned after taking a medical-grade test, a blood test may be administered by your doctor or a medical clinic.
When the Test is Still Negative
If, after taking these steps you’re still getting negative results, it may be time to consult with your doctor or OBGYN. What seems like pregnancy symptoms could actually be similar symptoms for another condition that you may need treatment for if you aren’t pregnant.
Don’t let confusing symptoms and test results rule your life anymore! Take your first steps toward certainty today and take a free medical-grade pregnancy test at Avenue Women’s Center. Regardless of the results, we can discuss what your next steps can be to move forward.
