Pregnancy Symptoms

Whenever you have sex, there is always a chance for pregnancy.  During pregnancy, your body goes through a lot of changes.  A missed period is the most common indication, but it doesn't necessarily mean you are pregnant.  Here are some of the symptoms:

  • Late period
  • Tender or swollen breasts
  • Frequent urination
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Fatigue
  • Lightheadedness or fainting
  • Backaches
  • Food cravings or aversions
  • Darkening of the nipples

Don't worry or wonder if you're pregnant...find out.  We offer free lab-certified pregnancy testing, and you'll get the results during your appointment. Call us today to schedule a free appointment


If you think you might be pregnant, you need to take a pregnancy test.  Pregnancy tests check for a hormone called hCG that is produced by the placenta after implantation of the embryo. The longer you wait to take the test, the more accurate it becomes. It is best to wait until your first missed period before you take a pregnancy test. You can test sooner, but you may need to take a confirming pregnancy test later.  At AbbaCare, pregnancy testing is free, and your test will be read by a nurse.  (Ask her anything.  She's a medical professional and a great listener.)
Pregnancy testing 
When should I see a doctor?

If you have concerns about missed periods and your pregnancy test continues to be negative, you should see your health care provider for assessment. If you need resources for health care, our center can provide you with referrals.

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

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

How accurate is the test? 

Our tests are laboratory quality. They can detect the hCG pregnancy hormone as early as 7 days after conception or 21 to 24 days after the first day of your last period. The test is over 99% accurate.
