This is a matter of personal preference, but it’s not necessary. The home pregnancy tests on the market today are very accurate, so if you got a positive result, you can trust it. If you’d like to confirm your results with your provider, know that the urine test we conduct has about the same level of accuracy as a home pregnancy test.
Many ob-gyn practices recommend waiting to book your first prenatal appointment until you’re about 8 to 10 weeks pregnant. However, you can book an appointment with your primary care provider at any point if you have questions about your pregnancy or would like options counseling. If you haven’t already spoken with your primary care provider about steps to take during early pregnancy, such as starting folic acid supplementation, we recommend that you call and speak to a member of our medical team for advice.
