Come in today or call us for your appointment. Our schedule is flexible to get you in when you want to be seen.

 

How accurate is the test?

Our tests are professional grade tests. They can detect the hCG pregnancy hormone as early as the first missed day of your period. Our tests are over 99% accurate.

 

Should I come back for a retest if my test is negative and my period doesn’t start?

Yes, you can come back for additional testing. The hCG pregnancy hormone doubles every couple days during the first 3 months of pregnancy. Waiting a few more days after a negative test may be enough to show a positive result, or confirm a negative.

 

What should I do if I have a second negative pregnancy test and have not started my period?

If you have concerns about missing your period and your pregnancy test continues to be negative, you should see your primary care provider as soon as possible. If you need resources for health care, our staff can give you information for assistance or refer you to a provider.
