How would you know if you were pregnant?

“If your taking birth control and do not always have a period. How would you know if you got pregnant?”

A: “A woman would have to have a pregnancy test to make sure she is not pregnant. If a woman was taking her birth control correctly, the risk of pregnancy is extremely low. However, if a woman forgets to take her pills or doesn’t take them at about the same time every day, the effectiveness of the birth control decreases and the risk of pregnancy increases. If you are concerned about a pregnancy take an over the counter test or make an appojntment at Family Planning to take a pregnancy test. Always remember: for birth control to be effective it must be used correctly and consistently.”
