If you are experiencing pregnancy symptoms, the first step is to take a pregnancy test to confirm whether you are pregnant. We offer free, medical-quality pregnancy testing at our clinic in San Diego. Our qualified medical professionals can verify your result, giving you peace of mind. Our pregnancy tests are lab quality with a 99% accuracy rate.
When you make an appointment, one of our compassionate staff members will provide you with a free pregnancy test, answer any questions you may have and share your results with you during the same visit. Our services are confidential, and any information shared during your visit will be kept private.
Tests can detect a pregnancy as early as 21 to 24 days after your previous period. Chances of accuracy increase when taken one to two weeks after your missed period.
Our pregnancy testing services detect pregnancy by measuring high levels of the hormone hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin). This chemical is naturally found in the human body, but rapidly increases when a woman becomes pregnant.
The accuracy of your test depends on when you take the test. Early on in your pregnancy, hCG levels increase drastically each day, sometimes even doubling in a 24-hour period.
Pregnancy tests taken one week before your missed period have an accuracy of about 70 percent. Tests taken at least two weeks after your missed period have nearly 100 percent accuracy.
Although urine pregnancy tests have high levels of accuracy, they are not considered medical proof of pregnancy. If you’ve tested positive for pregnancy, the next step is to set up an appointment with one of our trained medical professionals to receive an ultrasound. We also offer ultrasounds at no cost to you.
