Frequently Asked Questions
Can I walk in or do I need to make an appointment?
We highly recommend that you schedule an appointment to make sure that we are available to meet with you in a timely manner. We accept walk-ins too.
How do I know if I am pregnant?
The easiest way to determine if you are pregnant is to take a free pregnancy test at our center. Just because your period is late doesn’t always mean you are pregnant. Stress, hormonal changes, weight gain or loss are all possible reasons for a change in your menstrual cycle. We recommend you wait until the week after your period should have started.

How accurate is the pregnancy test?
Our tests are laboratory rated and 99% accurate. Urine-based pregnancy tests detect the hCG hormone in a pregnant woman’s system. 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.
Can I have a retest if my test is negative and my period still doesn’t 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.
When should I get an ultrasound?
An ultrasound is the next step following a positive pregnancy test. It will give you vital information such as how far along you are, if your pregnancy is viable, and if implantation has occurred inside the uterus.
If I'm a minor, do my parents need to know about my appointment?
