Be sure you are pregnant
Don’t get caught worrying about being pregnant before you are sure. A missed period is the most common indication, but it doesn’t necessarily mean you are pregnant.
Common symptoms include:
- Late period
- Tender or swollen breasts
- Frequent urination
- Nausea or vomiting
- Lightheadedness or fainting
- Food cravings or aversions
- Darkening of the nipples
Are you having some of these symptoms?
The Women’s Clinic of Atlanta’s medical staff can provide you with free lab-certified pregnancy testing. You will have the test results during your appointment.
Commonly Asked Questions
How accurate is the testing?
Our testing is laboratory rated. It can detect the hCG pregnancy hormone as early as the day before your first missed period. The testing is more than 99.9% accurate.
Can I have a retest if my testing is negative and my period doesn’t start?
Yes, you may be rescheduled for repeat testing. The hCG hormone doubles every 2.2 days during the first three months of pregnancy.
Should I see a doctor if I have a second negative test and have not started my period?
If you have concerns about missed periods and your pregnancy testing continues to be negative, you should see your health care provider for assessment.
What/Who do I need to bring to my appointment?
All we ask is that you bring a valid photo ID. Friends and/or family will be asked to wait in the lobby until after your testing for your privacy and the privacy of the other patients. They may join you, if you wish, after the testing is run and you are given the results, then we will be happy to answer any questions they may have and speak with them about your options.

Welcome to Buford: Buford is a city in Gwinnett and Hall counties in the U.S. state of Georgia. As of the 2010 census, the city had a population of 12,225. Most of the city is in Gwinnett County, which is part of the Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Marietta Metropolitan Statistical Area. The portions of the city in Hall County are not part of Atlanta’s metropolitan statistical area, but are part of Atlanta’s larger Combined Statistical Area, which includes Hall County. The city was founded in 1872 after a railroad was built in the area connecting Charlotte, North Carolina, with Atlanta. Buford was named after Algernon Sidney Buford, who at the time was president of the Atlanta and Richmond Air-Line Railway. The city’s leather industry, led by the Bona Allen Company, as well as its location as a railway stop, caused the population to expand during the early 1900s until after the Great Depression had ended. The city operates its own school district, the Buford City School District, and has been the birthplace and home of several musicians and athletes. Various tourist locations, including museums and community centers, the largest mall in the state of Georgia, the Mall of Georgia, and Lake Lanier Islands are in the Buford region.
