How do I know if I am pregnant?

The unknown can be scary. We can help you know one way or the other if you are pregnant. We have self-administered pregnancy tests that we can provide to you in our office. From there, we can help you understand your options.

We use a urine test strip which works as a single-step immunoassay for qualitative determination of the (hCG) hormone present in urine for early detection of pregnancy. The (hCG) is produced by the placenta beginning shortly after fertilization. In normal pregnancy, (hCG) can be detected in urine as early as 7 days following conception.


Symptoms of pregnancy may be:

  • You have missed one or more menstrual periods
  • Your breasts are swollen and or tender
  • You are nauseated or have had a change in appetite
  • You are tired or dizzy
  • You have to urinate more often
  • You have recently gained or lost weight
