What should you do first when you think you might be pregnant? Get a free pregnancy test.
Taking a pregnancy test can be stressful, but it’s an important tool to determine if you are indeed pregnant. You can then make important decisions as soon as possible.regarding your pregnancy. A pregnancy test detects a hormone called Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG), which is only found in a woman’s body if she is pregnant.
Some at home pregnancy tests can detect the hCG hormone (the hormone that indicates pregnancy) a few days prior to your missed period. They are most effective, however, after you have missed a period. If you got positive results from a home test, having a lab-quality test performed by a health care provider is recommended as the next step.
