Have you missed a period? Or experienced breast tenderness, nausea, or strange cravings? If you are using birth control, you may be wondering if the symptoms you are experiencing could mean that you are pregnant.
The fact is, it IS possible to get pregnant, no matter what type of birth control you are using. According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control), even women using an IUD (intra uterine device) have a slight risk of getting pregnant. With other types of birth control methods, the risk can be much higher.
So, if you are experiencing symtoms or have missed a period, it is important to have a pregnancy evaluation as soon as possible. At Harmony, we offer free pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, and even STD testing and treatment at no cost to you.
