Preconception

Premier Health providers answer frequently asked questions about preconception.

When should a woman be tested by her physician for pregnancy?

If you have missed your period and feel like you might be pregnant, but your home pregnancy test says otherwise, it’s time to visit your doctor for a follow up test. Your doctor can do a blood test that can be more accurate than a home test, and the results of the office test can shed some light on the home-test results, according to Premier Physician Network (PPN) physicians.

For more information about when a woman should be tested by her physician for pregnancy, talk with your doctor.
