How soon can I find out if I’m pregnant?

If you are pregnant, your body will produce a special pregnancy hormone known as hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin). This hormone appears in the urine as early as the first day of a missed menstrual cycle. A positive result indicates that your urine contains hCG, and a negative result indicates that no hCG has been detected.

Do you provide a blood test or a urine pregnancy test?

We provide a self-administered urine pregnancy test at the time of your appointment. The pregnancy tests that we use report a 99% accuracy rating. With a positive test result, you will receive proof of a positive pregnancy document.
