When you think you might be pregnant, you want clear answers that you can be confident in. At Waterleaf, we offer lab-quality pregnancy testing so you can be sure that your results are accurate. Learn more about why you should be tested at Waterleaf.
How does a pregnancy test work?
Pregnancy tests work by detecting the hormone associated with pregnancy, hCG. Our tests are administered by medical professionals, eliminating the possibility of a false result caused by user error. During your appointment, you will be asked to provide a urine sample. One of our nurses will then take that sample and administer the test. This only takes a few minutes and you should have your results before the end of your appointment.
Why should I get tested at Waterleaf?
When the stakes are as high as this, you want to have confidence in the accuracy of your results. Home pregnancy tests have improved over the years, but they still do not compare to a lab-quality pregnancy test administered by a medical professional. When you come in for your appointment, you will meet with a nurse who will be there to answer questions and advise you on when the best time to take the test is. If the test is taken too early, it increases the likelihood of a false-negative result.
If I am pregnant, what should I do next?
If your test comes back positive, we recommend following up with an ultrasound to confirm your test result. Ultrasounds allow you to be 100 percent sure that your result is accurate and you are pregnant. In addition to confirming your pregnancy, an ultrasound provides you with critical information to guide your decision-making process. At Waterleaf, we offer pregnancy testing and ultrasounds at no cost to women facing unplanned pregnancies.
