Pregnancy Testing

What are the symptoms of pregnancy?

A late period is the most common sign you're pregnant. You might also experience one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Swollen, tender breasts
  • Fatigue
  • Needing to urinate often
  • Nausea and throwing up
  • Feeling more or less hungry than usual

If you suspect you’re pregnant, take a pregnancy test. Eve Medical of Miami offers free pregnancy tests and counseling to discuss your options if your test is positive.

How does pregnancy testing work?

Pregnancy tests check your blood or urine for the presence of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG). HCG is a hormone your body only makes if you’re pregnant. Your body begins producing HCG when a fertilized egg attaches to the lining of your uterus. 

How accurate is pregnancy testing?

Drugstore pregnancy tests are most accurate when you wait to take one after you’ve missed your period. Many drugstore tests advertise that they’re accurate at detecting pregnancy before your missed period. 

However, the earlier you take a test, the less reliable the results may be. You may get a false positive or false negative and need to re-test. 

Drugstore tests also might not produce accurate results if your menstrual cycle is irregular. Blood tests at Eve Medical of Miami’s office detect a pregnancy before your missed period.

What is a false positive pregnancy test?

False-positive results occur when the pregnancy test detects hCG in your urine, but you’re not pregnant. Sometimes this is due to a problem with the test, such as an expired test. It also may mean you have HCG in your body. This might be the case if:

  • You took the test soon after taking fertility drugs containing hCG
  • You’ve had a miscarriage

A false positive also might mean you have an ectopic pregnancy (in your fallopian tube). This type of pregnancy can rupture your tube. Get medical assistance immediately if you suspect an ectopic pregnancy. Our Medical Director will perform an exam and ultrasound.

What’s the most accurate pregnancy test?

A blood test is more accurate than the urine test. Your provider sometimes recommends a blood test to check the exact amount of hCG in your blood. 

Your hCG levels usually double every two days at the beginning of a pregnancy. Measuring your hCG levels over several days can tell your provider whether your pregnancy is developing as it should.
