What is a Pregnancy Scare

Pregnancy can be a wonderful blessing or if you are not ready for it then it can be a tremendous heartache. A pregnancy scare is when you have signs or symptoms of being pregnant, and you either are or your not.

Many woman go through life always wanting to start a family, to raise children, to have a life. Others get pregnant young, and have no clue what to do with a baby. Some of the symptoms that you are having could be unrelated of pregnancy all together or they may mean that you are in fact pregnant. The only way to see that is with a test. You can have all the signs or symptoms such as: nausea, cramping, tender breasts, dizziness, and fatigue. However, if you do not take the test there is no way to know for sure.

If you have taking the tests and the results are positive it is best to let your doctor confirm it with a blood test or ultrasound. Then he will let you know what you need to do now. However, if you are not pregnant then there are steps to take to make sure that you do not have another scare again.

Steps to Take to Make Sure You Do Not Have Another Scare:

  • I would say the most obvious step is to not have any sex at all. Waiting until you are married and ready to start a family is the most likely choose.
  • Using protection is a good way to prevent pregnancy and any form of STD’s. However, not fully effective. As things happen, such as condom breaking, being faulty. You can never know.
  • Birth control is an option as well. However, like the condoms it is not 100% effective.
  • There is also the morning after pill which is emergency contraception that is used after having sex.

Pregnancy scares can be very stressful. If you are not ready then take the appropriate measures to prevent this from happening. It is your body control it.
