Don't get caught worrying about being pregnant before you are sure. A missed period is the most common indication, but it doesn't necessarily mean you are pregnant.

COMMON PREGNANCY SYMPTOMs

  • Late or missed period
  • Tender or swollen breasts
  • Frequent urination
  • Nausea or vomiting 
  • Fatigue
  • Lightheaded or fainting
  • Backaches
  • Food cravings or aversions

Having one, some, or even all of these symptoms doesn’t mean you are pregnant, but may be an indication of pregnancy. Women occasionally experience an inaccurate pregnancy test, or the result of the test may be unclear. If you have questions concerning your pregnancy test, or if you think you might be pregnant, we’re here to help and listen.

Contact us today to make an appointment for a free and confidential pregnancy test. Which can be followed up with an ultrasound and/or accurate options - including abortion, adoption and parenting - information.

HOW ACCURATE IS THE TEST?

Our tests are laboratory rated. They can detect the hCG pregnancy hormone as early as 7 days after conception or 21 to 24 days after the first day of your last period. The test is 97- 99% accurate.

CAN I HAVE A RETEST IF MY TEST IS NEGATIVE AND MY PERIOD DOESN'T START?

Yes, you may be rescheduled for another test. The hCG hormone doubles every 2.2 days during the first three months of pregnancy.

SHOULD I SEE A DOCTOR IF I HAVE A SECOND NEGATIVE TEST AND HAVE NOT STARTED MY PERIOD?

If you have concerns about missed periods and your pregnancy test continues to be negative, you may want to see your health care provider for assessment. If you need resources for health care, we can provide you referrals.
