You likely have a lot of questions when confronted with an unexpected pregnancy and looking for services. Don’t worry! We’re here to answer those.
Pregnancy tests work by detecting human chorionic gonadotropin, or hCG. This only develops in a woman’s body during pregnancy, and it can be detected by blood or urine-based pregnancy tests. When used correctly, these pregnancy tests are 99% accurate.
The best time to take a pregnancy test is 2-3 weeks after sexual intercourse, but some at-home tests can detect pregnancy as early as 10 days after conception. Try to take the test first thing in the morning, when your urine is most concentrated.
False positives are possible, but unlikely. This usually happens if you have a condition such as a chemical pregnancy, or if you take the test too early.
Receiving an obstetric ultrasound is the best way to protect your health and verify crucial pregnancy details. Ultrasounds determine viability, gestational age, and pregnancy location, so you can get the information you need as you are deciding which option is best for you.
