How accurate is the test?

Our tests are laboratory rated. They can detect the hCG pregnancy hormone as early as the day before your first missed period. The test is more than 99.9% accurate.

Can I have a retest if my test is negative and my period doesn’t start?

Yes, you may be rescheduled for a repeat test. The hCG hormone doubles every 2.2 days during the first three months of pregnancy.

Should I see a doctor if I have a second negative test and have not started my period?

If you have concerns about missed periods and your pregnancy test continues to be negative, you should see your healthcare provider for assessment.

What/Who do I need to bring to my appointment?

All we ask is that you bring a valid ID. Friends and/or family will be asked to wait in the lobby until after your test for your privacy and the privacy of the other patients. They may join you, if you wish, after the test is run and you are given the results, then we will be happy to answer any questions they may have and speak with them about your options.

Ultrasound near Acworth, GA

The ultrasound will evaluate three important aspects of the pregnancy

  • Determine if the pregnancy is inside the uterus. A pregnancy outside the uterus is a life-threatening situation which requires immediate medical attention.
  • Determine how far along are the pregnancy and gestational age of the fetus
  • Look for signs of viability (that the pregnancy is capable of developing under normal conditions) including baby’s heartbeat which begins 21 days after conception.

What is obstetrical ultrasound near Acworth?

An ultrasound, or sonogram, is a routine part of prenatal care in which the sonographer is able to see inside the body. A hand-held transducer is pressed against the skin and sends high-pitch sound waves that humans are unable to hear. The sound waves bounce off internal organs and structures and are received by the transducer. The machine constantly translates the sound waves into images on the monitor. This allows real-time viewing of what is happening inside the body, including viewing fetal heartbeat and movements.

What can I expect before, during, and after the procedure?

There is no special preparation for your ultrasound exam. A specially trained sonographer will ask you a few questions relating to your pregnancy before the exam begins.

Most ultrasounds are fast and easy, with little discomfort.
