The most common signs and symptoms of pregnancy include:
Unusual or abnormal period
Nausea and/or vomiting
To verify your pregnancy, it’s important to get a lab-quality pregnancy urine (hCG) test. A urine pregnancy test measures the levels of hCG, which is a hormone that is secreted when you are pregnant.
Gateway Express Testing can provide lab-quality testing by qualified healthcare professionals at no cost to you. Click here for more information on scheduling an appointment today.
While urine hCG tests are highly accurate, they aren’t perfect. A limited OB ultrasound may be offered:
to confirm a viable pregnancy,
identify that it is safely located in the uterus, and
assess with more accuracy how far along the pregnancy is.
Gateway Express Testing can offer a limited OB ultrasound to give you the important medical information you need. To schedule an appointment for a pregnancy test, and possible ultrasound click here.
An hCG blood draw may be necessary if the ultrasound is inconclusive.
At Gateway Express Testing, there are doctors who specialize in Women’s Health who can provide an exam and consultation regarding your pregnancy healthcare issues. To find out more about making an appointment or to speak to a healthcare professional, click here.

Some common symptoms of STIs include unusual odor, discharge from the vagina or penis, burning during urination and sores on the genitals. However, many STIs do not cause any symptoms and it is possible to spread these diseases and infections without ever having symptoms.
Treatment for some diseases will be offered to the client, while referrals for other treatment may be necessary.

hCG urine pregnancy test
Limited OB ultrasound
Gonorrhea and Chlamydia testing and treatment
When abortion is an option you are considering, our services can help you in your decision. Our medical grade HCG urine pregnancy test can confirm your pregnancy, and a limited OB ultrasound can determine if your pregnancy is viable while also giving you vital information on your pregnancy’s development. This is important information to have when reviewing the abortion options available to you.
According to the Department of Health and Human Services, having gonorrhea, chlamydia or bacterial vaginosis can increase a woman’s chance of having an infection after an abortion procedure. This is important because more than one million pregnant woman are annually diagnosed with a sexually transmitted infection.
Before scheduling an abortion procedure, make sure you confirm your pregnancy through a medical grade HCG urine test, receive an ultrasound to determine pregnancy development, and are tested for any infections that may affect your health. Gateway Express Testing provides sexually transmitted disease testing and treatment at no cost to the pregnant woman.
At our clinics, gonorrhea and chlamydia testing can be performed on the same urine sample that you provide for your pregnancy test. If you test positive for one of these infections, treatment is available at no cost to you. Testing and treatment appointments are also available for your sexual partner.

Early Ultrasounds & hCG Levels
For our female clients, we offer a limited obstetrical ultrasound at the time of her pregnancy test appointment. If we are unable to confirm intrauterine pregnancy at the first ultrasound, we will either offer a repeat ultrasound in one to two weeks or implement our standing order for quantitative hCG levels (through blood draw) with certain inconclusive ultrasounds.
By implementing the quantitative hCG standing order with inconclusive ultrasounds, a “safety net” is provided to the medical staff to prevent missing valuable information. By drawing one quantitative hCG level and then repeating the draw in 48 hours, we receive both results by the third day and obtain important information. This is extremely helpful with clients that either have irregular menses or do not remember their LMP.
The lab results are received in an easy and timely manner. Each lab company will be slightly different, but we receive our hCG results within one business day – either electronically or via fax. Increasing hCG levels will typically result in an offer of a repeat ultrasound, while decreasing hCG levels will result in a referral for ER or OB-GYN services.
