Waiting to test to find out if you are pregnant can feel like an eternity! But it’s best to wait until the day after you miss your period before you test. Waiting this long gives the pregnancy hormones time to develop to a level that is detectable in your urine. The time of day that you test can also be an important factor to consider. Urine is most concentrated when you wake up, so if you are pregnant, you will be more likely to receive a positive result if you test first thing in the morning.
An ultrasound is an essential part of pregnancy. This simple diagnostic test provides you with the facts you need about your pregnancy to make the best choice regarding its outcome. Even if you are considering abortion, an ultrasound is a crucial step before the procedure. • Ultrasounds confirm that the pregnancy is viable. If a pregnancy is not growing, it might naturally miscarry, or you might need to receive treatment. • An ultrasound will date your pregnancy. The length of your pregnancy determines which options are available to you. • Ultrasound will also confirm that your pregnancy is located in your uterus.
Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) are contagious and can be asymptomatic (have no symptoms). This means that even if you don't have symptoms of an STD, you can still have one and unintentionally pass it on to your partner or your baby if you are pregnant. If you are sexually active, you should be tested for STDs. Most STDs are easily cured, and treatment for non-curable STDs can improve symptoms dramatically.
