When Should I Take A Pregnancy Test?

When someone thinks they might be pregnant, there are so many questions.  This is especially true for someone who has never experienced pregnancy before.  Most often, the first sign of being pregnant is missing your mensural cycle.  However, not everyone keeps track of those dates.  Morning sickness and breast changes are some other signs which might make a woman think she may be pregnant.  Morning sickness or nausea anytime of the day can be a symptom of pregnancy, one that will grab your attention.  Swollen and or uncomfortable breasts can also be an annoying early sign of pregnancy.  There are other common symptoms of pregnancy.  But back to the question, when is it time to take a test?  The truth is, a pregnancy test if taken too soon, might give you a negative result even when you are in fact pregnant.  Once you have missed your period, you are getting closer to the right time.  Some would suggest the best time to take a pregnancy test is one week after you have missed the start of your period.  For those who choose to take the test sooner, then it is suggested the best time of day that you take the test is first thing in the morning.

Home Pregnancy Test

You would probably be surprised at how many tests we give to women who have already taken a home pregnancy test.  Several times a month we hear the statement, “Well, I did a test at home from the dollar store, and I just do not trust the results.” 


Right now, you might be reading this wondering if you are pregnant.  Are you wondering if you will head off to the dollar store for your own home pregnancy test?  After all, it’s only a dollar!  You might be asking yourself how often an at home pregnancy test is producing a false positive or a false negative response.  You might even be wondering if you can even come up with an extra dollar for their not so expensive test.  


Even if you do buy and perform a home pregnancy from the drug store, you may still feel insecure about the results.


We do not have the answers for you about home pregnancy tests, but we can assure you that we offer lab quality pregnancy tests with a 99% accuracy.  On top of that, all of our tests and services are at no charge to you.  Added to all of that, our caring and compassionate team of staff and volunteers will make sure you are not alone to read the results of your pregnancy test.


If you do get a positive pregnancy test result at home, we can confirm it with a test in our office.  If it comes out positive in our office, we go one step further and do an ultrasound test to attempt to confirm a pregnancy so you can be sure.  Contact us to schedule an appointment.

Privacy Matters

Oh, no.

No, no, no.

This isn’t possible.

I can’t be… pregnant.

What am I going to do? I don’t know. What is everyone going to say? My head hurts. I need time to think. I need someone to talk to that isn’t family or a friend, with their own agendas. 

This thought process is probably very similar to your own if you are facing an unplanned pregnancy. We at the Ramona Women’s Clinic are here to help. Not only do we provide answers about your options, and services such as free pregnancy tests, but we also offer support without the worry of someone else finding out about your pregnancy until you are ready.
