Pregnancy Testing

Do You Think You Might Be Pregnant?

Are you experiencing early pregnancy symptoms?  We Care offers no cost, confidential pregnancy tests and ultrasounds for pregnancy confirmation.  Our pregnancy tests are medical quality, highly sensitive, and provide quick, painless results during your visit to our clinic.  The tests detect the presence of hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin), a hormone which circulates in a pregnant woman’s body, shortly after fertilization and is released in urine.

When To Take A Pregnancy Test

The best time to take a test is at least one week after a missed period.  The amount of hCG present in a pregnant woman’s urine increases with time.  Waiting one week after a missed period will usually give a more accurate result.  Although it’s possible to get a positive result sooner, your chances of receiving a false negative result increase if you take a test too soon.  Many pregnant women receive a negative test result during the first few days after a missed period.  It’s a good idea to repeat a negative test again after a week has passed.  

Home Pregnancy Tests

Although over-the-counter home tests are accurate, there is still a slight chance the results could be wrong.  Taking a test too early or not following directions correctly can impact the accuracy of your test results.
