PREGNANCY INFORMATION

 

Do you think you might be pregnant? Before you worry too much, be sure you really are. Below are some common symptoms of pregnancy and what we can do to help.

Common pregnancy symptoms [1]

We will provide you with a free lab-certified pregnancy test and have your results ready during your appointment.

 

How accurate is the test?

 

Women’s Pregnancy Options uses McKesson hCG Urine Test cassettes, which are laboratory quality tests. They can detect the hCG pregnancy hormone as early as 7 to 10 days after conception or 21 to 24 days after the first day of your last period [2]. The test is over 99% accurate.

 

If I have a negative test result, may I get retested?

Yes, you may be rescheduled for another test. The hCG hormone doubles every 72 hours during the first 8 to 11 weeks of pregnancy, so retesting at a later date may show a positive result.

If I have another negative test result and have no started my period, should I see a doctor?

If you are concerned about the symptoms you are having, we do recommend you see a health care professional to assess your health. If you need assistance finding a doctor, our center can provide referrals.

*These symptoms are common during early pregnancy but may not necessarily be caused by pregnancy. Whether you have a positive or negative pregnancy test, we urge that you confirm these results with a medical professional.
