Missed Period

At Avenue Women’s Center, we meet many women who are concerned about a missed period. This can be a very scary time. If you are experiencing these feelings, we are here for you. We offer pregnancy tests at all of our Chicagoland locations and would love for you to reach out to us. Although a missed period is typically the first sign of pregnancy, it doesn’t always mean that. There are other reasons why your period could be late.

Are you currently stressed out or having anxiety issues?
Did you recently lose or gain weight?
Did you accurately record your last period?
Are your periods irregular?
Are you currently taking any medications or have any medical conditions that may effect your menstrual cycle?

All of these things can result in a missed period.

If you have tried to wait a couple of days after your missed period, and find yourself stressing out, please call us. Rather than worrying unnecessarily, we recommend that you come in for a pregnancy test. The tests at Avenue Women’s Center are lab quality. They provide accurate results just 10 days after the possible date of conception (including if that date was before your missed period)! We can help you determine whether or not you’re really pregnant… and can help you through this difficult time.

So take a deep breath and try not to stress out. If you are concerned about a missed period, Avenue Women’s Center is here to help. Our locations are in Elmhurst, Glen Ellyn / Lombard, Naperville, West Chicago, and Wood Dale, Illinois. When you want an accurate pregnancy test, we are here for you!
