Are You Wondering If You’re Pregnant?
Lab-quality pregnancy testing is an important first step if you think you may be pregnant. Home pregnancy tests can have false-positive or false-negative results. To find out if you are pregnant, you should always have your home test results confirmed in-clinic with a lab-quality pregnancy test. Abria offers this service at no cost to you.
How does a pregnancy test work?
When you’re pregnant, your body produces a hormone called hCG, human chorionic gonadotropin. After an egg is fertilized, hCG begins to build up rapidly. A pregnancy test detects the amount of hCG hormone in your urine to determine if you’re pregnant. A member of our medical staff will administer the test so you can be assured your test results are accurate.
When is the best time to 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.
If I’m pregnant, what should I do next?
If your test is positive, Abria offers no-cost limited obstetrical ultrasounds. Along with information about your potential pregnancy, an ultrasound will help determine if the pregnancy is in your uterus and how far along you are. Many pregnancies end naturally in miscarriage. An ultrasound will be able to determine if your pregnancy is progressing and growing.
In addition to these services, Abria offers information about your options, a nurse consultation, and a safe, judgment-free environment to assist you in thinking through your options.
