Pregnancy Test

Think you’re pregnant? Care Net Pregnancy Center of Southern Maryland offers laboratory quality urine pregnancy tests that are administered under the supervision of a licensed medical clinician. The tests detect the presence of hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) hormone which circulates in a pregnant woman’s body shortly after fertilization. A positive pregnancy test (including those taken at home) suggests a high probability that you are pregnant. However, the result should be confirmed. You may be eligible for an ultrasound to confirm pregnancy.




Limited Diagnostic Ultrasound – NO COST TO YOU

A limited diagnostic ultrasounds or sonogram may be used to confirm your pregnancy. In order to receive a sonogram a pregnancy test must be completed in one of our Centers. If positive, a sonogram can then be scheduled. Both the pregnancy test and sonogram are given without charge. Once you have completed this form you will be contacted about your request.

Signs & Symptoms of Pregnancy

The signs and symptoms of pregnancy vary from woman to woman and even from pregnancy to pregnancy. Some women have no noticeable signs at all. The timing of the onset of signs and symptoms also varies. Early indications may include but are not limited to:

  • Late or Missed Period
  • Nausea and/or Vomiting
  • Frequent Urination
  • Spotting or Cramping
  • Unexplained Fatigue
  • Feeling lightheaded or dizzy
  • Food Cravings or Aversions
  • Increased Sense of Smell
  • Darkening of Nipples
  • Sore, Swollen, or Itchy Breasts

Having one or all of these symptoms may be an indicator of a pregnancy, but does not necessarily mean you are pregnant. Women do occasionally experience an inaccurate pregnancy test or the result may be unclear. If you are experiencing any signs or symptoms of pregnancy, schedule medical quality pregnancy testing – at no cost to you.
