How Accurate Are Pregnancy Tests?

It seems like you can buy pregnancy tests almost anywhere these days. Even the dollar store has them! However, one question always comes to mind: how accurate are they? At Assure Women's Center, we purchase the best and earliest tests we can find. However, even the very best of tests which require a urine sample (which ours do) must be run according to the directions or the results can be false.  Here are some common misconceptions:

  1. "Pregnancy tests can be taken anytime and be accurate." The reality is that they are not reliably accurate until a after a certain period of time. The tests work by reacting to a chemical manufactured by the pregnancy, called HCG. It takes a couple of weeks in the pregnancy for that level to be high enough to be detected. ...read more

Is It Important to Get Tested for STD’s Before Having an Abortion?

At Assure Women's Center, we only provide testing for two sexually transmitted diseases, chlamydia and gonorrhea. We also only provide this testing to our patients who receive a positive result on the pregnancy test.  Why is this? And, why do we only test for these two diseases? Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are the two most common STD's out there today. They are bacterial diseases which commonly reside in the vaginal opening. We feel that it is imperative for the pregnant women that come to us to know if they have either one of these two diseases, particularly if they are considering having an abortion. Let me explain why. Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are dangerous even if they remain outside the body. However, d ...read more

What Are the Signs That You Might Be Pregnant?

When is the right time to call and get a pregnancy test? What symptoms should you be looking for? The most important sign is that you have missed your period. In most women, this means they are far enough along for a pregnancy test to be accurate. Before that time, even if other symptoms occur, the test will most likely not produce accurate results. What are some of the other symptoms of early pregnancy? The most common are: feeling queasy (or even outright sick) either first thing in the morning or all day, breast tenderness, frequent urination, feeling more tired than normal, being light-headed or dizzy, and craving certain foods. While it is true that some women have a little bleeding well into their pregnancy, this is rare. Spotting in early pregnancy is not uncommon, but a full, h ...read more

How Soon After Birth Can You Get Pregnant Again?

You've just given birth to a new baby! Your little one is only three months old, but you feel like you might be pregnant again. Is that possible? Yes it is. Some experts say that unless a woman is breastfeeding full time, the time right after giving birth can be one of the most fertile. Therefore, caution needs to be taken. Of course, it is not recommended to resume sex until at least four weeks after giving birth (6 weeks if you've had a C-section.) However, after that point, a new pregnancy could easily occur. If you think you might be pregnant, Assure Women's Center is your best first step! We can provide a free pregnancy test, as well as an ultrasound so you can know exactly how far along you are and to determine if the pregnancy is viable (will continue.) We would ...read more


If You are a Teenager, Does Your Parent Need to Come With You for a Pregnancy Test?

You are sixteen and you think you might be pregnant. You want to call Assure Women's Center to find out for sure. However, you don't want your mother to find out. What should you do? Actually, the law states that young women are considered as adults as far as getting help with reproductive matters. That includes pregnancy tests. Not only can you come alone for our services, but it is against HIPAA regulations for anyone to tell your parents without your consent. No matter how old you are, pregnancy is a big area to tackle all by yourself. Therefore, it might be a good idea to include a parent or grandparent (or even an aunt or other trusted friend or relative) in what is going on.  However, at Assure you can get a pregnancy test and an ultrasound even if y ...read more
