Does A Missed Period Mean I’m Pregnant?

A Missed Period

A missed period can cause anxiety but doesn’t necessarily mean you are pregnant.  When your regular menstrual cycle doesn’t show up, it can just be delayed. Even stress, weight loss, illness, and antibiotics can cause a missed period.  Some women don’t menstruate every month because they don’t ovulate every month.  You can give it a few days in case you miscalculated your last period, but most practitioners suggest taking a pregnancy test.

We offer free medical grade urine pregnancy tests.  A pregnancy test can help you get peace of mind. You can schedule an appointment at the top of this page.  If you are pregnant, we are a great place to gather information about your pregnancy options.  All of our services are completely confidential and free of charge.

*Remember about 10 -25% of pregnancies end in miscarriage.
