When to Take a Pregnancy Test

Unexpected pregnancy is a common concern for women. “When to take a pregnancy test” is one of the first thoughts when wondering about a possible pregnancy. Feelings of anxiousness and worry can easily creep in when you’re unsure of whether you are truly pregnant or not. Don’t let the fear of the unknown keep you feeling concerned. If you are in the Chicagoland area and in need of a free pregnancy test, we hope that you will contact us today.

When You’re Pregnant Again After Abortion

Many women who have an abortion are not feeling that they never want to become a mother. Rather, they are convinced that they just couldn’t have a child at that time. In a 2009 study, 18.5% of the participants became pregnant in the 12 months following an abortion. Some women become pregnant again due to life circumstances that haven’t changed and some women report a strong desire to become pregnant again after abortion. Sometimes it just happens. But what if you’re pregnant again after abortion and it’s still not the timing you’d anticipated or hoped for? Please take comfort that you’re not the only one to find yourself in this situation. All of us face situations that we don’t plan or expect.
