Pregnancy Info

Wondering if you’re Pregnant?

A late period is often the first indication of pregnancy, as well as a reminder that any sexual encounter carries the potential for conception. The likelihood of pregnancy can vary throughout the menstrual cycle, as it is influenced by different factors. It’s important to note that sperm can survive in a woman’s body for up to five days, making it challenging to determine the exact chances of pregnancy at any given time.

While some women may assume that using contraception guarantees no risk of pregnancy, it’s crucial to understand that contraceptives are not 100 percent foolproof. Even with contraceptive measures in place, the possibility of pregnancy can never be completely eliminated after engaging in sexual activity.

Although missing a period is a common sign of pregnancy, it’s essential to recognize that there are other reasons why a woman might experience a skipped period. However, if a woman has been sexually active, the potential for pregnancy should not be disregarded.
