If you think you may be pregnant it is important to know about the changes taking place in your body that may indicate pregnancy. Remember every woman is different and common signs of pregnancy may or may not pertain to your situation.
Some common symptoms of early pregnancy include:
There are two basic kinds of pregnancy tests, the first uses urine and can be purchased over the counter, and the second test uses a blood sample and is administered in a doctor’s office or clinic. Both tests measure the level of the hormone hCG which indicates a pregnancy.
According to Medicinet.com, “hCG is made when a fertilized egg implants in the uterus. This usually happens about six days after the egg and sperm merge. But studies show that in up to 10 percent of women, implantation does not occur until much later, after the first day of the missed period. The amount of hCG rapidly builds up in your body with each passing day you are pregnant.”

The primary reason a clinical pregnancy test is more accurate than an over the counter home test is the experience and frequency in which the clinic administers tests. At Community Pregnancy Clinics we have given hundreds of tests and are constantly updating our kits for optimum freshness and accuracy.
There are many variables that lead to inaccurate readings from home tests. At Community Pregnancy Clinics we do our best to eliminate those variables so you know for sure whether or not you are pregnant.
According to Healthline, “You should wait to take a pregnancy test until the week after your missed period for the most accurate result.
If you don’t want to wait until you’ve missed your period, you should wait at least one or two weeks after you had sex. If you are pregnant, your body needs time to develop detectable levels of HCG. This typically takes seven to 12 days after successful implantation of an egg.
You may receive an inaccurate result if the test is taken too early in your cycle.”
