How Does A Pregnancy Test Work?
A pregnancy test determines whether or not you’re pregnant by detecting the amount of hCG, human chorionic gonadotropin, in your body. This hormone is only present in pregnant women. It builds rapidly, entering your urine and bloodstream.
Pregnancy tests are nothing to be nervous about, as they are painless and straightforward. We use lab-quality urine pregnancy tests for faster results. You can determine pregnancy with a blood test, but the results take longer.
According to the Mayo Clinic, the best time to take a pregnancy test is at least a week after your missed period. This gives your body the right amount of time to produce the pregnancy hormone, human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG).
While an at-home pregnancy test can be accurate, there is always a chance that you took it incorrectly or at the wrong time. You can receive false-negative test results when your urine is diluted.
It’s essential to retest if you have already taken a home test. Get free and confidential pregnancy testing at our center today to confirm your pregnancy results and get the peace of mind you’re looking for. We’ll arrange a free and confidential ultrasound scan if our center test is positive.
Following up on your pregnancy test with an ultrasound can confirm if your pregnancy is viable (progressing with a detectable heartbeat). An ultrasound is your second step to pregnancy confirmation.
We can provide you with your pregnancy options once we have your test results. Schedule your free and confidential appointment with us today. Our non-judgmental team will sit down with you and discuss the next steps if you are indeed pregnant.
