IMPORTANT FACTS

Valuable information to help you make an informed decision.

girlinchair.gifBefore you make any decisions, you need to determine if you really are pregnant.
And you need to know some facts: 

20% of positive pregnancy tests are not viable intrauterine pregnancies. In fact, many women have had abortions when they weren't actually pregnant at the time.

A urine pregnancy test detects elevated HcG, a hormone which increases rapidly in early pregnancy. These levels decline slowly after the demise of a fetus and can still be detected several weeks after fetal death, resulting in a positive test result.

A pregnancy outside the uterus (ectopic) can cause elevated HcG levels, which result in a positive test. In addition, you should obtain medical treatment immediately upon discovery of an ectopic pregnancy!

An ultrasound exam is the only 100% accurate way to determine pregnancy.
