Could I be pregnant?

This is the first question you may be asking yourself if you have missed a period or have had other changes in your body that may indicate pregnancy. It is important not to ignore your gut feeling or intuition that you might be pregnant. The only way to be sure is a pregnancy test. Depending on the type of pregnancy test used, many can indicate a pregnancy a few days before a missed period.

Only medical professionals can give you an answer with 100% accuracy that you are or are not pregnant. Medical professionals use urine tests to indicate if a hormone called HCG is present. This hormone is present if a pregnancy has occurred.
