If you want confidence and accuracy, come to Hope Pregnancy Center, where our pregnancy tests are over 99% accurate.
How Does A Pregnancy Test Work?
When a woman becomes pregnant, her body begins producing a particular hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in her urine. Production of this hormone begins right after a fertilized egg attaches to the wall of a woman’s uterus. The hCG then enters her urine and bloodstream. If the pregnancy test detects hCG in her urine, she’s pregnant.
Pregnancy testing at our center is a simple and painless experience.
At-Home Pregnancy Tests
At-home pregnancy tests are reliable. However, some women take the over-the-counter tests incorrectly. If you take them too early in your pregnancy, don’t completely follow directions, or take them at the wrong time of day, you can get a false result.
If you got a positive at-home pregnancy test result, you may wonder if it’s correct and what you should do next. You need accurate information from a licensed medical professional. Confirm your results with a free and confidential pregnancy test from Hope Pregnancy Center.
When Should I Take A Pregnancy Test?
Take a test at least one week after your missed period for the most accurate pregnancy results. Why wait? It takes time for your body to produce a detectable amount of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) if you are indeed pregnant.
In the early stages of pregnancy, the hCG hormone increases rapidly — doubling every two to three days. The earlier you take a pregnancy test – the harder it is to detect HCG.
