The urine pregnancy test at HPC will be administered by an RN and will determine pregnancy hormone levels sufficient to indicate pregnancy. The test is 99.8% accurate. If you are a minor without a parent or guardian, you will need to self test under the supervision of a trained Client Advocate. If the test is positive, the RN will re-run the testl, and if it repeats as a positive test, then you will have a consultation with the health professional on staff.
The test may be positive as early as 7-9 days after conception. It is important, but not required that you know the first day of your last period when you call to make your appointment.« Back
