Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Know if I Am Pregnant?

Because every pregnancy is different, symptoms will vary for most women. Here are some pregnancy symptoms to look for:

  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Tender/swollen breasts
  • Spotting
  • Fatigue
  • Aversion to certain foods
  • Cramping
  • Mood swings

Don’t wonder any longer. We can confirm your pregnancy through a lab-quality pregnancy test.

When Should I Take a Pregnancy Test?

When you become pregnant, your body begins to produce hCG, known as the “pregnancy hormone.” The amount of hCG produced increases rapidly as your pregnancy continues.

The timing of a pregnancy test is often based on your regular menstrual cycle. If it is like clockwork (every 28 to 30 days), you will want to take your test a day or two after your missed period. If your cycle is irregular, we suggest waiting 5 to 7 days before taking a pregnancy test. By waiting longer, the hCG hormone level will be higher, and you will be able to get a more accurate urine sample.

What About Prenatal Care?

Pregnancy and prenatal care go together, hand in hand. Prenatal care is the process of checking up with a health professional to examine how your pregnancy is going and ways to help. During your early pregnancy, prenatal care is essential to your pregnancy health. Prenatal visits could include blood tests, regular physical exams, recommended vitamin information, and option conversations. A health professional can ease your mind regarding expected pregnancy symptoms and occurrences. They can also inform you of any health issues to be aware of.
