Wondering if you are pregnant can be nerve-wracking. Knowing what to expect ahead of time can help ease some of your anxiety. Here is some information on what you can expect when having a pregnancy test in one of our clinics.
A pregnancy test will detect the presence of a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropic (hCG). This hormone is produced by the placenta after the embryo attaches to the uterine lining. The amount of hCG quickly builds in your body with each day you are pregnant.
Most doctors recommend that you wait until the first day of your missed period before taking a urine pregnancy test. A missed period is often one of the first signs of pregnancy.If you take a pregnancy test too early, the results will not be accurate.
When you arrive at PAC, you will need to fill out some paperwork, supply a valid picture ID and then we will collect your urine. A member of our medical staff will then place it in a special container with an eyedropper. Our medically-accurate pregnancy tests will deliver a positive or negative result. A member of our medical staff will provide you with your results.
If positive, you will receive a "proof of pregnancy" document that you can use to apply for Pregnancy Medicaid.
You can expect your visit for a pregnancy test will be 45-60 minutes. This includes initial intake, test processing and taking you through your results. A client advocate will then provide you with all information as you need about the options available to you.
