Am I Really Pregnant?
It can be difficult to navigate all the emotions that come with a potential pregnancy. What do you do next? Are you really pregnant? What will your partner or parents think?
Or maybe a missed period is not very abnormal for you but you still wonder if you are pregnant? Get lab-quality pregnancy testing at our clinic to be sure and move forward. Take a breath – you are not alone.
How Does Pregnancy Testing Work?
Can you trust the results of home pregnancy tests? Though home pregnancy tests are very accurate, there is a chance for false positive or negative results if a step is done incorrectly, or you take a test at the wrong time.
The Mayo Clinic shares that it’s best to wait until after the first day of your missed period for the most accurate results, allowing your body to produce a detectable amount of HCG – the pregnancy hormone.
Pregnancy symptoms can be just the beginning. While only a doctor can make a diagnosis of pregnancy, we at Coastal Choices Women’s Clinic offer free pregnancy testing that is 99% accurate 7-10 days after conception. The pregnancy tests we use detect elevated hormone levels in the urine.
Two Steps to Pregnancy Confirmation
Trained advocates will provide information and educational materials on your pregnancy options during your pregnancy test appointment.
If you have a positive test at our clinic, we can likely schedule you for an ultrasound to confirm how far along you are, the viability, and location of your pregnancy, and determine if you have any possible complications. Our no-cost limited ultrasound can give you very useful information you need to make an informed decision about your pregnancy.
