During pregnancy, your body goes through many changes. Some common symptoms of early pregnancy include a missed period, nausea, breast tenderness, frequent urination, tiredness and mood swings. If you think you might be pregnant, the only way to know for sure is to take a pregnancy test. Please contact us for an appointment to take a free and confidential test.
Pregnancy tests check for a hormone called HCG that is produced by the embryo during pregnancy. The longer you wait to take the test, the more accurate it becomes. It is best to wait until your first missed period before you take a pregnancy test. You can test sooner, but you may need to take a confirming pregnancy test later.
