If you’ve recently had unprotected (or maybe even protected) sex and think you might be pregnant, it’s time to find out for sure. There’s no point in thinking about your next steps if you haven’t verified your pregnancy with a pregnancy test. At Heartbeat Hope Medical, we offer free onsite pregnancy tests with verification from a registered nurse.
Are You Pregnant?
A missed period is usually the first sign of pregnancy, but it isn’t the only one. Are you experiencing any of these other symptoms?
- Missed period
- Swollen, tender breasts
- Frequent urination
- Food aversions
Find out if you’re pregnant by taking a Heartbeat Hope Medical pregnancy test. We provide you with a free and confidential medical-quality pregnancy test so you can be confident in the results.
At Heartbeat Hope Medical, our pregnancy tests are over 99% accurate and are more sensitive than many of the over-the-counter pregnancy tests. At-home pregnancy tests are reliable but because a woman is anxious to find out the result, she may take the test too soon or incorrectly.
It’s also possible that you’re getting a positive test result and you’re no longer pregnant. The Mayo Clinic says up to 20% of known pregnancies end in a natural miscarriage. It takes your body a while to adjust to no longer being pregnant, so it’s possible to get a false-positive result.
How Does A Pregnancy Test Work?
In a normal pregnancy, hCG, the hormone present during pregnancy, doubles in quantity approximately every two days. Pregnancy tests detect the pregnancy hormone hCG in a woman’s urine.
When Should You Take A Pregnancy Test?
You’ll get the most accurate results if you take a pregnancy test after your missed period. If your period is regularly every 28-30 days, take the test a day or two after you expected your period to start. If your monthly cycle is normally irregular, wait 5 or 6 days to take the test. Because our tests are more sensitive than others, you can get an accurate result earlier.
