If you are wondering whether or not you may be pregnant, the waiting game can make women feel quite nervous or anxious. Perhaps you are feeling some strange symptoms that may clue you in to a possible pregnancy, like nausea or unusual tiredness. How long do you have to wait before you can take a test?
The biggest clue to being pregnant is a missed period. Experts say to wait until a period is missed completely before getting a test; however, many over the counter tests claim they can detect a pregnancy up to 6 days before a missed period. What should you trust?
Scheduling an appointment with Avenue Women’s Center is a great solution for any woman who is anxious to know whether or not she is pregnant. We offer pregnancy tests that are free and are lab-grade quality. This means they are 99% accurate as long as it has been at least 10 days after possible conception. You’ll be able to meet with a peer counselor in a safe, comfortable environment and discuss any questions or concerns you may have after your test.
