Pregnancy Tests & Ultrasound

Engage Equip Empower

Whether you are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, or have questions about your options, we are here for you.
Call us at (610) 379-0411 or make an appointment online.

Avoid stressing about being pregnant until you are certain. While a missed period is a common sign, it doesn’t automatically indicate pregnancy.

Common symptoms include:

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

Are you having some of these symptoms?

Our team is able to offer no-cost lab-certified pregnancy testing, and you can expect to receive the test results during your appointment. In the event of a positive result, we also offer a complimentary ultrasound at no expense to you.

Commonly Asked Questions

What happens during an Ultrasound? 

Early in pregnancy, a vital test called transvaginal ultrasound uses a small device placed in the vagina to create detailed images of the pelvis. This method is used to confirm the presence of a viable intrauterine pregnancy, to estimate gestational age, detect fetal cardiac activity, and for familial reasons relating to maternal health. Though it may seem a bit invasive, this procedure is crucial for thorough prenatal care, especially in the first trimester.

During the second and third trimesters of pregnancy, a non-invasive and painless transabdominal ultrasound procedure is typically performed. A trained technician uses a transducer on the abdomen to generate images of the developing fetus. The transducer emits sound waves that bounce off the baby and surrounding structures, producing real-time visual representations on a monitor. 

How accurate is the Pregnancy Test?

Our tests are laboratory-rated, designed to detect the hCG pregnancy hormone as early as the day before your first missed period. While confirming a pregnancy as quickly as possible is ideal, the test is more than 99.9% accurate following the first missed period.

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 other patients. If you wish, they may join you after the test is run and you are given the results. At that point, we will be happy to answer any questions they may have and speak with them about your options.
