How Do Pregnancy Tests Work?

When a woman becomes pregnant, her body produces a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). A pregnancy test detects the presence of the hCG hormone in a pregnant woman’s urine and blood shortly after fertilization.

We offer both blood and urine tests. They detect the presence of the hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) hormone early in pregnancy. Our urine pregnancy tests provide immediate results.

When Should I Take a Pregnancy Test?

Positive results can be detected up to 6 days before a missed period. If you have taken a home pregnancy test and received a positive result, contact Compass Women’s Clinic to verify your result with a preliminary licensed healthcare provider.

Are At-Home Pregnancy Tests Accurate?

Urine pregnancy tests are 97%-99% accurate. Some at-home pregnancy tests are more sensitive than others. Sometimes, women take them too early or don’t follow the directions thoroughly, which may result in inaccurate results.

At Compass Women’s Clinic, our licensed healthcare providers will instruct you on how to take the test correctly, and you’ll have the results during your appointment.

What If My Pregnancy Test Comes Back Positive?

A positive test (including a home test) indicates pregnancy but not a confirmation. We recommend confirming the test result with a limited obstetrical ultrasound exam. We offer no-cost, confidential ultrasound scanning.

If your ultrasound confirms your pregnancy, we can discuss your options. We recognize that every patient’s needs are different. Our trained patient advocates work with a preliminary licensed healthcare provider. Our advocates want to learn about your situation. While our licensed healthcare providers offer the medical services you need.

Then, we can help you determine the best course of action.
