A Pregnancy Test is the best way to confirm a pregnancy.
CAPS will provide you with a lab-certified Free pregnancy test verified by a nurse. Your nurse may also provide a Free ultrasound to determine how far along you are. You will have the results during your appointment.
How accurate is the test?
Our tests are laboratory rated. They can detect the hCG pregnancy hormone as early as 7 days after conception or 21 to 24 days after the first day of your last period. The test is over 99% accurate.
Can I have a retest if my test is negative and my period doesn’t start?
Yes, you may be rescheduled for another test. The hCG hormone doubles every 2.2 days during the first three months of pregnancy.
Should I see a doctor if I have a second negative test and have not started my period?
If you have concerns about missed periods and your pregnancy test continues to be negative, you should see your health care provider for assessment. If you need resources for health care, CAPS can provide you referrals.
