Pregnancy Q & A

AccuHealth Urgent Care

What are the signs to test for pregnancy?

There are several signs that can indicate you should come to AccuHealth Urgent Care to be tested for pregnancy. The common signs of pregnancy include:

  • Missed menstrual period: Testing can be done as soon as you miss a period.
  • Cramps outside of menstrual periods: During the implantation process, many women experience menstrual-like cramps.
  • Sore breasts: Pregnancy causes the body to make extra hormones, which then cause changes in the body, including increased blood flow to the breasts.
  • More frequent urination: If you're urinating more frequently and can't determine a clear cause -- for example, increased water consumption -- it's time to see the doctor.
  • Nausea and/or vomiting: Commonly called morning sickness, this can be a classic indicator of early pregnancy.


Additionally, if you know that your contraceptive method failed -- for example, you missed a few days of birth control pills or a condom broke -- it's always best to be tested for pregnancy.

What type of pregnancy testing will the doctors do?

AccuHealth Urgent Care can perform both urine tests and blood tests to confirm pregnancy. Urine tests at AccuHealth Urgent Care are more sensitive than home pregnancy tests, and are thus more accurate. Though urine tests are typically accurate today, they can't detect pregnancy quite as accurately as blood tests can.

Blood tests can detect pregnancy early -- at around 6-8 days after ovulation. There are two kinds of blood tests for pregnancy. The most common is the qualitative hCG test. This test checks for the presence of hCG, which provides a definitive answer to the question of whether you're pregnant. A quantitative hCG test is a more complex test that measures the precise level of hCG in the blood. This kind of test is used in cases where there has been a big drop in hCG or when other tests weren't conclusive.

When should pregnant women seek urgent care?

Pregnant women should seek urgent care at AccuHealth Urgent Care if they have pregnancy issues such as:

  • Pain when urinating, more frequent urination, or other UTI symptoms
  • Indicators of a yeast infection such as white vaginal discharge, itching, and burning
  • Morning sickness
  • Bleeding, including persistent spotting
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Dizziness
  • Fainting


If you suspect that your symptoms are out of the ordinary, don't take any chances -- come into AccuHealth Urgent Care to get the care you need now.
