Still second-guessing if you’re really pregnant? We know how stressful this time can be. You are not alone. Get clarity and confirm your pregnancy with free and confidential, lab-quality pregnancy testing at our center to be sure.
How Does Pregnancy Testing Work?
During the beginning of a pregnancy, the production of HCG increases rapidly — doubling every two to three days. A pregnancy test detects the amount of HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) hormone in your urine to determine if you are pregnant. It is a simple and pain-free process.
When Do I Take A Test?
According to the Mayo Clinic, the best time to take a pregnancy test is at least one day after a missed period. At this point, your body has a good amount of time to produce the HCG hormone to accurately show on the test. Waiting a little bit longer will allow for correct results.
At-Home Pregnancy Tests
While home pregnancy tests you can buy at the store are very accurate, there is still a small chance the result is false – depending on how you use them. If the pregnancy test is taken too early or the directions are done incorrectly, you may have received a false positive or negative test result.
Take a free pregnancy test at our center to confirm your pregnancy test results, even if you got a positive result at home. Our caring team is ready to support you and help you receive clarity.
If Your Pregnancy Test Is Positive
There are many steps to take next after receiving a positive pregnancy test, but you are not alone. Sometimes it’s hard to know for sure what’s next. It’s important to speak with a medical professional who can answer your questions and give you the information that you need.
At Alpha Omega Center our medical professionals will help you find out if you’re pregnant and, if you are, they will determine how far along you are and whether or not your pregnancy is viable (able to progress). Our pregnancy tests are hospital grade and accurate as early as seven days following conception.
