What is Pregnancy Testing?

Pregnancy testing involves checking for the presence of the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in your body. Blood tests for pregnancy are highly accurate and can detect pregnancy earlier than urine tests. These tests not only confirm pregnancy but can also help monitor the progress and health of the pregnancy in its early stages.

When is Pregnancy Testing Needed?

Pregnancy testing is recommended in several scenarios, including:

  • Early Detection: If you suspect you might be pregnant and want to confirm it as early as possible.

  • Symptom Evaluation: If you experience symptoms such as a missed period, nausea, breast tenderness, and fatigue.

  • Monitoring Pregnancy Health: To track hCG levels and ensure the pregnancy is progressing normally, especially if you have a history of complications.

  • Confirming Home Test Results: To verify the results of an at-home pregnancy test with a more accurate blood test.

What to Expect During Pregnancy Testing

At Local MD Urgent Care, we strive to make your testing experience as comfortable and efficient as possible. Here’s what you can expect during your pregnancy test:
