There is always the possibility of an unplanned pregnancy and/or an STD
There is always the possibility of an unplanned pregnancy and/or an STD if you are sexually active. However, did you know that you have less than a 5% chance of getting pregnant if every day within your menstrual cycle is the same? Furthermore, did you know that yo to 1 in 5 pregnancies end in miscarriage?
A missed period is the most common indication of pregnancy, but it doesn't necessarily mean you are pregnant.
Common Pregnancy Symptoms Include:
- Late or missed period
- Tender and/or swollen breasts
- Frequent urination
- Nausea and/or vomiting
- Lightheaded feeling or fainting
- Food cravings or aversions
If you are pregnant or think you might be pregnant, we are here to help YOU. Please call us at 636.495.6566 or visit us at the center.
Most STDs do not have initial symptoms so you cannot wait for symptoms before being tested. We can discuss the STD tests when you come in for your pregnancy test and we will be able to test for at least some of them during that initial visit.
Coming into MyLife Medical Center was the smartest thing I have ever done! When I realized I might be pregnant, I really freaked out. But, I couldn't talk to anyone about it. I was too scared of what they would say. My friend had told me about her experiences at MyLife so I gave them a call. My client advocate sat and listened to me. Then she helped me with all sorts of things. She helped me decide what was really best for ME. I liked that. She didn't push or judge--just listened and helped me see the answer that was best for me. I am so glad I came into MyLife Medical!
