FAQs: Pregnancy Testing
How accurate is the pregnancy testing?
Clients must have missed a period to ensure they receive the most accurate results. Our pregnancy tests look for the pregnancy hormone (hCG) in your urine, and if you have not missed a complete period that hormone level may be too low for our tests to detect. Once you have missed a period, our tests are guaranteed to be 97%-99% accurate.
Can I have a retest if my testing is negative and my period doesn’t start?
Yes, you may be rescheduled for repeat testing. The hCG hormone doubles every 2.2 days during the first three months of pregnancy.
