The Home Pregnancy Test Is Positive. Now What?

Whether you were trying to get pregnant or received and unexpected blessing, congratulations! You’ve got a baby on the way.

Well, not so fast.

There is a very slight chance that you can have a false-positive result which would mean that you are not pregnant. Sometimes the test will give you a positive result if you have blood or protein in your urine. There are some drugs that can also give you a false-positive reading.

Chances are, however, the home pregnancy test is accurate. You should call a doctor and set up an appointment to confirm your results and establish prenatal care.

With so many options available, how do you know who to call? Here are some tips on how to decide:

1. Determine what type of provider you would prefer; a OB/GYN or midwife?

2. Do your research. If you will be using insurance, find a provider who accepts your plan. There are multiple variations of each so you need to make sure they are in-network with your carrier.

3. Once you narrow down the list, there are other important topics to discuss such as:

4. Many women find their obgyn through a personal referral such as a family member or friend. Either way, it’s important to ask a lot of questions up front so you feel comfortable. Remember, you will be spending a lot of time in their office, getting to know the providers and staff. You want to make sure it’s a good fit.

As you begin your search, you can always feel free to contact Nile Women’s Health Care in Roswell or Suwanee, GA. Set up a complimentary meet and greet with any one of our certified doctors or midwives where they will not only confirm your pregnancy but also help guide you as you begin your nine-month journey.
