How do I know if am pregnant and how long have been pregnant ?

How do I know if am pregnant and how long have been pregnant ?, Most people find out that they are pregnant if they are sexually active and miss their period. Symptoms of early pregnancy include nausea/vomiting, breast tenderness, and fatigue (feeling tired). The only way to know for certain if you are pregnant is with an ultrasound or pregnancy test (a urine or blood test). You can do a urine pregnancy test from the first day you missed your period and after. Before this time, the level of hormones made by the pregnancy might be too low to show up on the test.

If your period is regular (it comes around the same time every month), you can use the date of your last period to figure out how far along the pregnancy is. Count from the first day of your last menstrual period, include that day, and start counting up until today. If you have an irregular period or have been on birth control recently, this might not be accurate. In this case, we suggest seeking care at a healthcare facility.

Are abortion pills safe, and what are the risks?

Abortion is very safe, regardless of which kind you have. In fact, abortion is one of the safest medical procedures out there.

Complications occur in less than 0.4% of people for medication abortion and less than 1% for in-clinic procedural abortion.

There are a lot of rumors about abortion, and many aren’t true. Abortion does not lower your chances of getting or staying pregnant in the future. Abortion does not cause infertility or cause birth defects in a future pregnancy. In fact, you can get pregnant almost immediately after having an abortion.

Having an abortion does not increase your risk for breast cancer and does not cause depression or mental health issues.

Medication Abortion

Medication abortion is about 4 times safer than aspirin and 14 times safer than continuing a pregnancy.

Complications are rare and most are not serious.

  • The most common complication is a continued pregnancy. If the pregnancy continues after taking the abortion pill, you may be able to take more medicine or you will need to have an abortion procedure.
  • Serious risks, such as heavy bleeding and infection, are very rare.

One type of pregnancy that cannot be ended using pills is an ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy outside the uterus) – ectopic pregnancies are very rare. Medication abortion does not end an ectopic pregnancy. Ectopic pregnancies can be life-threatening, so it’s important to follow up with a doctor if you still feel pregnant one week after taking the pills. Contact your doctor immediately if: you do not have bleeding within 24 hours after taking the medications, you continue to feel pregnant about 7 days after taking the medications, or you have worsening abdominal pain more than 24 hours after taking the medications.

 How many weeks into pregnancy do I make a decision?

You may have different options available to you depending on where you live (and the laws in your state). It may be harder to get an abortion after 11 or 12 weeks of pregnancy in some states, so it’s important to try to have the abortion as soon as possible if that’s what you choose.

If you might continue your pregnancy, start taking a daily prenatal vitamin.

Be careful when looking for a reliable health center. There are fake clinics called ‘crisis pregnancy centers,’ managed by anti-abortion activists. At these facilities, they may not offer you all the facts about your pregnancy options. Visit our Resources page for more.
