If you’ve recently had unprotected (or maybe even protected) sex and your period is late, there’s a good chance you’re pregnant. Your next best step is to come to the CPC to take a free pregnancy test.
How Does A Pregnancy Test Work?
When a woman is pregnant, her body produces a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). This pregnancy hormone is produced once a fertilized egg attaches to the uterine lining. A positive pregnancy test means hCG was detected in a woman’s urine or blood, depending on the type of test used.
What If I’ve Already Taken a Home Pregnancy Test?
At-home pregnancy tests are reliable, but due to anxiety, tests are often taken too soon or incorrectly. As a result, if a pregnancy test is taken at the wrong time or the directions aren’t followed, there’s a chance you’ll get an inaccurate result. For instance, makers of at-home pregnancy tests suggest you take the test first thing in the morning when your urine is the most concentrated.
Even if you took an at-home pregnancy test, you need to have the results confirmed just to be sure. Come to the CPC for your free pregnancy testing.
What If The Test Is Positive?
