Pregnancy Symptoms

Whenever you have sex, there is always a chance for pregnancy. If you think you may be pregnant, please contact us for an appointment to take a free and confidential pregnancy test.

During pregnancy, your body goes through many changes. Some common symptoms of early pregnancy include a missed period, nausea, breast tenderness, frequent urination, tiredness and mood swings. If you think you might be pregnant, you will need to take a pregnancy test. Please contact us for an appointment to take a free and confidential test.

Pregnancy tests check for a hormone called hCG that is produced by the embryo during pregnancy. The longer you wait to take the test, the more accurate it becomes. It is best to wait until your first missed period before you take a pregnancy test. You can test sooner, but you may need to take a confirming pregnancy test later.

How accurate is the test?

Our tests are laboratory rated. They can detect the hCG pregnancy hormone as early as 7 days after conception or 21 to 24 days after the first day of your last period. The test is over 99% accurate.

Can I have a retest if my test is negative and my period doesn't start?

Yes, you may be rescheduled for another test. The hCG hormone doubles every 2.2 days during the first three months of pregnancy.

Should I see a doctor if I have a second negative test and have not started my period?

If you have concerns about missed periods and your pregnancy test continues to be negative, you should see your health care provider for assessment. If you need resources for health care, Carenet Pregnancy Center of Cochise County can provide you referrals.
