When should I take a pregnancy test?

According to the Mayo Clinic, the best time to take a pregnancy test is at least one week after your missed period. This gives your body time to produce a detectable amount of HCG - the pregnancy hormone. Do you need a pregnancy test after a home pregnancy test you get from the drugstore? Yes! Though home pregnancy tests are normally very accurate, there is always a chance for a false positive. To be positive about your positive pregnancy test, get tested with our medical team today. We can assure you of the accuracy of your results so you can make your next step.

Why do I need an ultrasound?

Do you need an ultrasound? If you are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy or you aren’t sure yet, a pregnancy test is only your first step of pregnancy confirmation. You also need an ultrasound to confirm your pregnancy! A positive pregnancy test does not reveal all the information you need to move forward with a decision. There are three main reasons an ultrasound is essential, including:
  1. It confirms you have a viable pregnancy (the pregnancy has not miscarried or is ectopic)
  1. It confirms how far along you are (gestational age)
  1. It locates the pregnancy (confirm whether it’s growing within the uterus)
