HOW ACCURATE ARE YOUR PREGNANCY TESTS?
Our urine-based tests are laboratory rated and 99% accurate.
HOW SOON AFTER HAVING SEX CAN I KNOW IF I AM PREGNANT?
Our pregnancy tests can often detect a women’s hCG level as early as 10 days after conception (21-24 days after the first day of your last period), although some women’s hCG level is not detectable until at least one week after a missed period.
CAN I HAVE A RETEST IF MY TEST IS NEGATIVE AND MY PERIOD
STILL DOESN'T START?
STILL DOESN'T START?
Yes, you may be scheduled for another test. The hCG hormone concentration doubles approximately every 2.2 days during the first 3 months of pregnancy.
CAN I SCHEDULE AN ULTRASOUND?
Your first appointment will be to confirm pregnancy with our laboratory-quality pregnancy test. This establishes you as a client of the Center. Clients may then be scheduled for an ultrasound at a following appointment based on the results of the first appointment.
WHAT WILL YOUR ULTRASOUND TELL ME?
The Center performs a limited ultrasound that determines:
- Gestational age (how far along you are)
- Viability (pregnancy is in the uterus and a fetal heartbeat is detected)
- Single versus multiple pregnancy (i.e. twins)
If our licensed sonographer sees anything of concern during your sonogram, she will instruct you so that you may seek appropriate medical attention. Additionally, all sonograms are reviewed by the Center’s Medical Director.
I JUST WANT TO KNOW IF MY PREGNANCY IS HEALTHY.
It’s important to know that your pregnancy is healthy and progressing normally. That’s why you need prenatal care with an OB/GYN or midwife.
I JUST WANT TO KNOW IF I AM HAVING A BOY OR GIRL.
We do not do gender reveal sonograms.
DO YOU PROVIDE PRENATAL CARE?
We do not provide prenatal care. You will need to schedule regular checkups with a doctor or midwife clinic. We can provide you with a referral for prenatal care and assist you with the process of applying for prenatal coverage through Medicaid.
