No-Cost Pregnancy Testing
If you’ve recently had unprotected sex or missed a period, you might be wondering if you could be pregnant. We know the possibility of being unexpectedly pregnant can be overwhelming and scary, so it’s best to take things one step at a time. Your first step is pregnancy testing, which the Center for Women offers at absolutely no cost to you.
Am I pregnant?
There are a number of pregnancy symptoms women notice in the early weeks of pregnancy. While no symptom in itself is specific to pregnancy, a combination of these symptoms could indicate it. Symptoms vary woman to woman and pregnancy to pregnancy, so the only way to be sure is to take a pregnancy test.
What if I’ve already taken an at-home test?
If you’ve already had a positive result on an at-home pregnancy test, we still recommend you come in for our pregnancy testing services. With at-home tests, there is a margin for error, and you could have had a false positive. It’s important to know for sure before considering your options.
How does pregnancy testing work?
Our lab-quality pregnancy testing detects high levels of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) in the urine. The hormone hCG is present after the fertilized egg is implanted in the uterus. It can best be detected as early as between 12 and 14 days after having sex. The results will be available immediately following your pregnancy testing.
What are my next steps?
If you tested positive after pregnancy testing at our center, your next step will be to have an ultrasound procedure. An ultrasound will provide you necessary information about your health so that you know all that you need to make the best decision possible for you.
The Center for Women provides no-cost services to women who are or think they might be unexpectedly pregnant. Schedule an appointment with us today for no-cost pregnancy testing.
