What to do if you suspect pregnancy

According to Healthline - If you suspect you may be pregnant, the first thing you should do is take a pregnancy test. Home pregnancy tests are widely available at drugstores and supermarkets and are easy to use. These tests detect the presence of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), a hormone that is produced during pregnancy, in a woman's urine.

If the test is positive, it's important to make an appointment with a healthcare provider as soon as possible to confirm the pregnancy and begin prenatal care. Prenatal care is crucial for both the mother and the developing baby.

During your first prenatal visit, your healthcare provider will perform a physical exam, take a medical history, and perform a variety of tests to confirm the pregnancy and check for any potential complications. They may also provide you with information about proper nutrition, exercise, and other lifestyle factors that are important for a healthy pregnancy.

If the pregnancy test is negative and you continue to have symptoms of pregnancy, such as missed periods, nausea, or fatigue, it's important to speak with your healthcare provider. They may recommend further testing or evaluation to determine the cause of your symptoms.
