What kind of pregnancy tests are there?
There are two different types of pregnancy tests, a urine test and a blood test. At Reachout Women’s Center, we offer our clients urine tests.
How does a pregnancy test work?
Pregnancy tests detect a pregnancy hormone in a woman’s body called human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG). At Reachout, clients collect urine in a cup and our nurse will perform the pregnancy test. Results are ready in 3 minutes.
When should I take a test?
For accurate results, a woman should wait one week after her missed period to take a pregnancy test. Taking a test too early could result in a false negative due to HCG levels in the body not being high enough to register on the pregnancy test.
Could I have a positive test that is wrong?
A urine test may be positive but in some cases it does not represent a viable pregnancy. Ectopic pregnancies (an embryo that implants somewhere other than the uterus), certain rare tumors, or a recent miscarriage can all have positive test results. It takes an ultrasound to confirm a live embryo within the uterus.
Could I have a negative test that is wrong?
It is possible to have a false negative test. A false negative can result from taking a pregnancy test too early, checking results too soon and using diluted urine. The best time to take a pregnancy test is first thing in the morning a week after your missed period. Make sure to give the test time to work before reading the results.
