When Should I Test?

It’s best to take a pregnancy test after missing your first period.  The risk of testing too early is the possibility of getting a false negative.  Taking a test at the right time will improve accuracy because the pregnancy hormone will have had time to rise to detectable levels.

If you’re unsure of when to take a test, or if you believe you may be pregnant, you should make an appointment.  Our licensed medical staff can help discuss your unique situation.  Should you need a retest, any subsequent pregnancy testing will remain cost free.

How Does Pregnancy Testing Work?

Pregnancy testing detects a hormone that’s only present during pregnancy. This hormone is called Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, or hCG. This hormone begins to build rapidly after conception. When the hormone reaches a certain level, pregnancy testing will detect the presence of hCG and provide a positive result. If the hormone is not detected, it will respond with a negative result.

As mentioned earlier, if a woman tests too early, a false negative can result. False results can also happen with user error. That’s why it can be valuable to test at a qualified medical facility with trained staff who can listen to a short health history, ensure the test is administered correctly, and read the results with a trained eye.
