Pregnancy is one of the best phases of one’s life. It is important to detect pregnancy at the right time so that one can have all the check-ups done and take the necessary precautions. Detecting pregnancy at the right time is a matter of calculations based on your last period and the missed one, as well as the signs and symptoms that come during the first weeks of pregnancy. Apart from a home kit that could test for pregnancy, you can also try an online pregnancy test to find out whether or not you are pregnant. Yet, you will still have to go through a physical test in order to find out whether or not you are pregnant for sure. Here’s how the online pregnancy test works.
- Questions: The test asks you a series of 12 to 14 questions so as to detect your last period and what mode of protection you have been using like condoms, birth control pills and more. Also, the test will seek to find out your ovulation date by asking the first date of your previous period and also the cycle you have. You could have a 25 to 28 day cycle, which differs from woman to woman.
- Symptoms: The test will also ask you questions regarding various symptoms that you may have been experiencing. These can range from a sudden aversion towards various kinds of food and nausea as well as vomiting. Also, bloating in the abdomen region and tenderness of the breasts for a period of a few weeks are considered as symptoms of early pregnancy.
- Results: The online pregnancy will show you the probability of your pregnancy rather than confirming that you are pregnant. Whatever the result be, you will have to see a doctor or take a home based pregnancy test as well so that you can confirm the results. Sometimes, you may be suffering from bloating, pain and light vaginal bleeding as well as missed menstrual cycle due to reasons like an STD or infection. So, it would be best to have the same checked by a doctor too.
- Other tests: You can also calculate other things online like your due date, the status of the pregnancy which will point at the size, weight and other dimensions and development stage of the fetus. Further, this kind of a test will help you in understanding which trimester you are in, and when your trimester dates are. Also, you can calculate the check-ups of your various trimesters so that you do no miss any. But before any of this, it is important to find out whether or not you are pregnant. Also, once it is confirmed that you are pregnant, you will need to then take ample care of yourself in emotional and physical terms so that you can have a healthy and comfortable pregnancy with a well-developed fetus.
