Urine pregnancy testing uses a urine sample to detect the presence of a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). This hormone is produced by the placenta shortly after the embryo attaches to the uterine lining and builds up rapidly in your body in the first few days of pregnancy.
The Noble County Health Department offers urine pregnancy testing without an appointment. Insurance is accepted. For those without insurance, there is a self-pay price.

- Proof of pregnancy statement.

If the pregnancy test is negative, the client will be provided with the following:
