Most women think they’re pregnant if they haven’t had a period for a while and have been having sex. Nausea, breast soreness, and tiredness are also common in the early stages of pregnancy. These two methods are the only way to know that a woman is pregnant right away.
You can do a pregnancy test from the first day you don’t have your period to the day you get your period back. Pregnancy hormones aren’t high enough to show up on a pregnancy test before this time. You might be pregnant but not show up on the test, even though you might be.
If a doctor does an ultrasound, he or she can tell a pregnant woman how long she has been pregnant. Pregnant length can also be estimated by the doctor without having to use an ultrasound machine to do it. A pregnancy test can’t tell you this. A woman can also figure out how long she has been pregnant, but this isn’t the only way. She has to figure out when the first day of her last menstrual period was, add that date, and keep going until today.
How far along in your pregnancy are you? Research indicates that medication abortion is most often recommended for pregnancies prior to 13 weeks since your last menstrual period. Use the pregnancy calculator to determine how far along you are, since your last menstrual period.
If your last period started on or after:
