What types of pregnancy tests are available at Niagara Falls Urgent Care?
A pregnancy testing clinic is where women can receive a quick and easy test to determine if they are pregnant. Most tests are done at a clinic by a provider who is medically trained in women’s health. These clinics play an important role in women’s wellness as they provide discreet pregnancy testing in a nonjudgmental environment. Pregnancy testing clinics test for the presence of an hCG protein in the urine to detect pregnancy, but they may also perform blood tests, although these are much more expensive.
The ideal time to take a pregnancy test to achieve the greatest accuracy depends on the type of test, its sensitivity, and the levels of hormones currently present. Most pregnancy tests check for increased levels of hCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin hormone. Levels of this hormone increase approximately ten days after conception, or about six days before a missed period (six days before the next expected period). However, hCG levels are still relatively low during this time, so for the most reliable results, it is often recommended to wait until after the first day of a missed period. In addition to this, because hCG levels are highest in the morning, this is usually the best time to take a pregnancy test.
Pregnancy comes with many changes, both physical and mental. While the symptoms of pregnancy can vary from trimester to trimester, the initial signs of pregnancy typically include:
• Missed Period: — The most obvious sign of pregnancy is a missed period; although this can occur for a number of reasons, this is the best indication that it is time to take a pregnancy test.
• Tender, Swollen Breasts — The hormonal changes in early pregnancy might make the breasts sensitive and sore. As the body adjusts to hormonal changes, this discomfort will likely decrease after a few weeks.
• Nausea with or without Vomiting — Morning sickness, which can occur at any time of the day or night, often begins one to two months after becoming pregnant; while many people may realize they are pregnant before this point due to a missed period, this is a characteristic symptom of pregnancy.
