facial numbness remained ever since pregnancy

Towards the end of my last pregnancy, I suddenly got some facial numbness. It's remained a little bit ever since. However, it's now gone! Would you recommend doing a pregnancy test? Thanks.

Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

Facial numbness alone is not likely to be due to pregnancy. If there is a history of unprotected intercourse recently then by all means please get a pregnancy test done.

Wishing you best of health
