A pap smear is a medical test in which a medical provider collects cells from the cervix during a vaginal exam and those cells then undergo a microscopic examination. These cells are evaluated for abnormalities, such as the presence of cancerous or precancerous cells. A Pap test can detect certain viral infections such as human papillomavirus (HPV), which is known to cause cervical cancer.

A urine pregnancy test is a very reliable method of assessing for pregnancy. The test looks for a hormone called HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin). The presence of this hormone typically indicates pregnancy and can be detected in the urine 10 days after fertilization and by blood 8 days after fertilization of the egg, and. Most people schedule a test around the time of a missed period.
Free Ultrasound Imaging
Ultrasound imaging can also be used to detect a pregnancy. Ultrasound scans are made available to patients who have a confirmed pregnancy test and are at least 6 weeks pregnant. An obstetric ultrasound scan is used to determine the viability, location, and gestational age of a fetus. This is an important step after you confirm that you are pregnant with either a urine or blood pregnancy test.
