When you have sex around the time of ovulation, there’s a chance for pregnancy. If you think you may be pregnant, you can visit the clinic as a walk-in or make an appointment to take a free and confidential pregnancy test.
During pregnancy, your body goes through many changes. Some common symptoms of pregnancy include:
- Missed period
- Breast tenderness
- Frequent urination
Having some or all of these symptoms doesn’t mean you are pregnant, but may be an indication of pregnancy. Women occasionally experience an inaccurate pregnancy test, or the result of the test may be unclear. If you have questions concerning your pregnancy test, or if you think you might be pregnant, we’re here to help. Even if you’ve had a pregnancy test at home, you can still make an appointment to confirm your own results.
Pregnancy tests measure levels of a hormone called hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) that is produced by the embryo during pregnancy. The longer you wait to take the test, the more accurate it will be. It is best to wait until your first missed period before taking a pregnancy test. You can test sooner, but you may need to take another pregnancy test later to confirm your results.
