If you think you might be pregnant, the first step is to take a pregnancy test to find out for sure. For most women, one of the earliest signs of pregnancy is a missed period.
Another sign is a positive home pregnancy test. Most tests can start to detect pregnancies as early as one day after a missed period. If you tested and the result was negative, however, and you still have not started your period, wait a few days and test again. Pregnancy tests are most accurate one week after a missed period.
If your test is positive, it is important to call your health care provider or visit a family planning program to confirm the pregnancy and begin prenatal care right away for the health benefit to mom and baby.
