Pregnancy Testing Options
If you have done a home pregnancy test and the results are:
1. Positive – There is no need to repeat the pregnancy test.
- Please contact your personal physician, an obstetrician or your county Health Department for further medical care. In DeKalb County, DeKalb County Health Department: Healthy Moms, Healthy Kids Program: 815-758-6673
- Please review the Pregnancy Option Counseling sheet for additional information.
2. Negative – You’re unlikely pregnant. However, if you did the pregnancy test before a missed period, you may want to repeat the test a day or two after the first missed period.
If you think you may be pregnant and haven’t done a pregnancy test, a home pregnancy test should be done.
