How Does A Pregnancy Test Work?
When you get pregnant, your body produces a hormone called hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin). This hormone starts right after a fertilized egg attaches to the wall of a woman’s uterus.
The hCG hormone enters your urine and bloodstream, rapidly increasing in the first few weeks. Our free medical-grade pregnancy tests work by detecting hCG in your urine.
I’ve Already Taken An At-Home Test
Even if you’ve taken an at-home pregnancy test, getting another opinion from a medical-grade pregnancy test is still important. According to the Mayo Clinic, at-home tests have different sensitivity levels, and you must take them at certain times.
A clinical pregnancy test is more accurate than an at-home test because of the experience and frequency in which the clinic administers tests.
We know how to eliminate the variables that can lead to inaccurate at-home test readings. Get accurate results you can trust.
You May No Longer Be Pregnant
A positive pregnancy test is only an indication you might be pregnant, but it does not guarantee you have a viable pregnancy. Viable means the pregnancy is growing with a detectable heartbeat.
The Mayo Clinic reports that up to 20% of known pregnancies end in a natural miscarriage. The number may be higher since many women miscarry before they know they’re pregnant.
Your body takes time to realize it’s no longer pregnant, so it’s possible to get a positive result several days after the miscarriage.
Free and Confidential Pregnancy Testing
Visit Options Care Center for free and confidential services. We offer medical-grade pregnancy tests, compassionate peer advising, and information about all your options.
Upon a positive medical-grade pregnancy test in our facility, our nurse will discuss your next steps.
Our nurse will test for STIs (sexually transmitted diseases) as part of our pre-abortion screening process. Even if you don’t have symptoms, if you’re sexually active, regular screening for STIs is essential.
The CDC estimates that young people ages 15-24 accounted for almost half of the 26 million new sexually transmitted infections (STIs) that occurred in the United States in 2018.
If you are pregnant, an STI is harmful to the health of you and your baby. Come to Options Care Center to have a medical professional test for STIs early in your pregnancy.
