During pregnancy, your body goes through many changes. Some common symptoms of early pregnancy include a missed period, nausea, breast tenderness, frequent urination, tiredness and mood swings. If you think you might be pregnant, the only way to know for sure is to take a pregnancy test.

Pregnancy tests check for a hormone called hCG that is produced by the embryo during pregnancy. 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.

When you come into Durango Pregnancy Center for a pregnancy test you will be helped by our trained staff. They will ask you a variety of questions regarding your health and pregnancy symptoms along with your possible decision should you be pregnant. As a client you are very important to us so please do not feel embarrassed or shy about telling us the truth about your physical, emotional or spiritual well being.
