Are you waiting and hoping it will start soon? If your period is late, you may be wondering if you’re pregnant. Yes, a missed period can be an early sign of pregnancy, but it can also be caused by other medical issues. Rapid weight gain or loss, a hormonal imbalance, and stress can all cause your menstrual cycle to change.
It is even possible you are experiencing a miscarriage. Unfortunately, miscarriages are relatively common. Experts suggest that as many as 1 in 4 known pregnancies ends in a miscarriage. You can continue feeling pregnancy symptoms even after a miscarriage for a few days or even weeks. Don’t wait and wonder any longer, let us answer the question with free pregnancy testing.

Was the Test Positive?
