Do I need to have a missed period before my appointment?

Yes, and here’s why! Before you come in for a pregnancy test, ThriVe® asks you to be 28-31 days from your last period. This is to help ensure that your pregnancy test result is accurate. It generally takes the time of a missed period for this hormone to show up. Learn more about pregnancy options including abortion, adoption, & parenting.
