How Can You be sure you’re pregnant?

A pregnancy test indicates the possibility of pregnancy. Although unusual, getting a false pregnancy test result is possible, meaning the results are wrong.

How can you be sure your result is accurate? You should take more than one pregnancy test over several days, but you don’t have to keep paying for them. We offer free and confidential lab-quality pregnancy testing.

If your test from Alpha Center is positive, a nurse will evaluate you to determine if you qualify for an ultrasound. An ultrasound proves if the pregnancy test is accurate or not.

When Should You Take a Pregnancy Test?

The following are usually the first symptoms of early pregnancy:

  • A missed period
  • Tender, swollen breasts
  • Nausea, with or without vomiting
  • Increased urination
  • Fatigue

Some women experience all the above symptoms immediately, while others experience nothing for weeks or months. Take our Pregnancy Symptoms Quiz to better understand how likely you are to be pregnant.

Experts recommend waiting until after your missed period before testing. If you test too soon, it may be too early for the pregnancy hormone (hCG) to build up in your blood and urine, which could result in a false negative. Be sure to wait 4 weeks since your LMP (last menstrual period) before taking a test to ensure it is as accurate as possible.

How Could Your Pregnancy Test Result Be Wrong?

It is essential to follow the directions carefully, check the expiration date, and take the test at the right time of the day.

If you test later in the day, you may get a negative result because your urine is diluted. Or, you could get a positive result despite having an ectopic pregnancy or miscarriage.
