Signs of Pregnancy

A missed period is the most common indicator that you may be pregnant, but not the only one. Here are some other common symptoms:

  • Frequent urination
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Change of appetite
  • Breast tenderness
  • Fatigue

The caring staff at Shady Grove Pregnancy Center offers urine pregnancy testing. If the results of a pregnancy test performed at our clinic reads negative but you still have many pregnancy symptoms, you may return in a week for another test. We can also refer you to another medical source for a blood pregnancy test.

Both of these types of pregnancy tests are aimed at producing effective, evidence-based results. If you think you might be pregnant, get tested right away.

Shady Grove Pregnancy Center uses a urine-based pregnancy test that is 97 – 99% accurate. A trained pregnancy counselor oversees each pregnancy test and your visit will last approximately one hour.

Urine Pregnancy Tests

Urine-based pregnancy tests measure the presence of HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin), a hormone produced by the placenta. Click here for detailed information about how HCGs indicate the likelihood of pregnancy.

Pregnancy Test Verification

We offer pregnancy verifications which are determined by the date of your last menstrual period (LMP). This pregnancy verification is the official document that serves as the proof of pregnancy for community agencies that provide services like Medicaid, the W.I.C. program, and the Montgomery County Health Department.

If you think you might be pregnant, schedule your confidential appointment today.

You’re more than the results of a test. We promise: no shaming, no pressure, and no judgment.
