Pregnancy Testing and Confirmation of Pregnancy are Provided Free of Charge
The test is a rapid one-step, urine analysis pregnancy test, to detect hCG (Human chorionic Gonadotropin) concentrations greater than 20 mlU/rnl.
A trained staff member assists with the pregnancy test procedures ensuring accurate results. Test results (positive or negative for hCG) are determined immediately.
Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a glycoprotein hormone secreted by the developing placenta shortly after fertilization. In a normal pregnancy, hCG can be detected in serum as early as 7 days following conception. The hCG hormone which has been released into the maternal serum is subsequently excreted in the urine. The concentration of hCG rises rapidly, frequently exceeding 100mlU/ml by the first missed menstrual period and peaks in the range of 30,000 – 200,000 mlU/ml by 8-10 weeks into pregnancy. The appearance of hCG in urine soon after conception and its subsequent rise in concentration during early gestational growth make it an excellent marker for the early detection of pregnancy.
However, a urine pregnancy test is not medical proof of pregnancy. If your urine pregnancy test shows a positive result, Solutions provides free ultrasound examinations for medical confirmation (proof) of pregnancy.
