Crossroads provides lab-certified urine-based pregnancy test at no cost. Upon request, you will be provided with a written “verification” or in the absence of medical personnel, a “confirmation” of your positive or negative pregnancy test results. However, only a physician can diagnose a pregnancy.
How accurate is the pregnancy test?
Our tests are laboratory quality and 99% accurate. Urine-based pregnancy tests will detect the Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) hormone in a pregnant woman’s urine. Since the production of hCG can vary greatly from woman to woman, sometimes as much as 20 fold, time periods when a “positive” test occurs can also vary. Our pregnancy tests can often detect some women’s hCG level as early as 7 days after conception (21-24 days after the first day of your last period), although some women’s hCG level is not detectable until at least one week after a missed period.
Is a blood test more accurate?
A urine-based pregnancy test detects hCG hormone, whereas a blood test measures the hCG level. So yes, a blood test is more accurate. Crossroads only provides urine pregnancy tests; your health care provider can perform a blood test, to diagnose your pregnancy.
Can I have a retest if my test is negative and my period still does not start?
Yes, you may be scheduled for another test. The hCG hormone concentration doubles approximately every 2.2 days during the first 3 months of pregnancy.
Should I see a doctor if I have a second negative test and have not started my period?
If you have any medical concerns, you should see your health care provider for assessment. If you need resources for health care, Crossroads can provide you with referrals.
