What: A urine pregnancy test is a 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 attachment to the uterine wall. Most people schedule a urine pregnancy test around the time of a missed period. A blood test is not routinely performed to diagnose a pregnancy.
Who: Female patients ages 12 years or older.
Cost: No cost for urine pregnancy testing. $10 for blood testing, if deemed necessary by clinician.

What: A Pap smear or Pap test is a medical test in which a medical provider collects cells from the cervix during a pelvic exam* and those cells then undergo a microscopic examination.

A Pap test can detect certain viral infections such as human papillomavirus (HPV), which is known to cause cervical cancer.

If you have certain risk factors, you may need to get them more frequently.
