The physical act of taking a pregnancy test is one of the simplest things there is to do. Peeing on a stick, pretty easy right?! Wrong. While taking a pregnancy test is really simple, the emotional aspect of taking a pregnancy test can be tough. Taking a pregnancy test can be scary, for several reasons! Claim
For many women, pregnancy is not something that is on the radar at whatever point they are in their lives. For this reason, taking a pregnancy test can be really scary. If you don’t want to be pregnant, a pregnancy test can be the only thing keeping you from going over the edge.
Even though the physical act of taking a pregnancy test can be emotionally overwhelming if you want the results to be negative. You know that in the blink of an eye (well, three minutes, give or take), your whole life can change and things will never be the same. Sometimes, a woman can be so scared to take a pregnancy test that she just continues to put it off, until either she starts her period, or gets to the point where she can no longer deny that she is pregnant.
On the other side of the spectrum are an entire group of women who are scared that their pregnancy test will turn out negative. Maybe they’ve been trying for months or even years to have a baby, and they finally think they may have gotten it right.
There are women who have been through expensive, invasive and exhausting fertility treatments, and that one little stick with pee on it is all that’s holding them back from achieving their dreams. There are women who are nearing the end of their childbearing years, and who know that if this pregnancy test doesn’t turn out positive, it may very well be the end of the road for having a baby. These women can also be terrified of taking the simplest test on Earth.
The bottom line is that whether you want to be pregnant or you don’t, the finding out part can be emotionally overwhelming. There is something so final and even surreal about peeing on that stick, something that can change the entire course of your life in an instant. It might not seem like much to a woman who has never been in that situation, but for those of us who have had to take the test, we all know the power of “the stick”!
