How do I know if I’m pregnant?
Some women do not notice early pregnancy symptoms or mistake them for something else, but by educating yourself, you can detect your pregnancy at its earliest stages. Here are some of the most common early signs of pregnancy:
- a missed period
- excessive fatigue
- tender breasts
- unusual mood swings
- uncommon food aversions or cravings
If you notice any of these symptoms after unprotected sex or birth control failure, there is a chance that you are pregnant. You can come to our clinic to take a free pregnancy test to find out for sure.
How much will my appointment cost?
Since our primary concern is providing help to women in need of our support and services, we do not charge our patients for their appointments. That means your visit is at no cost to you.
I just found out I’m pregnant. What are my options?
If you just found that you are pregnant, you probably have many questions. Maybe you are not sure what to do next. Fortunately, our caring staff of professionals has helped many women who have been in your position. We can offer you information and guidance in a nonjudgmental setting, so you can know more about your options, which include adoption, abortion, and parenting.
Do you offer free pregnancy testing?
Yes, we offer free pregnancy testing in our clinic. If you believe you might be pregnant, we recommend that you take a test in our clinic.
Can I bring someone with me?
We understand that this is a stressful time in your life, and we do not want you to go through it alone. That’s why we encourage you to bring someone with you to your appointment to provide you with additional comfort and support.
How do I know if I need an ultrasound?
An ultrasound will confirm your pregnancy, determine how far along you are, and determine whether the pregnancy is viable or not (a nonviable pregnancy means there is no chance of the pregnancy continuing). Our licensed medical providers can determine if this test is needed at your pregnant test appointment or on a future date.
Will my insurance company find out about my appointment?
No. We will not inform anyone about your appointment, including insurance companies. We care about your confidentiality, so we will protect your identity, giving you peace of mind that your privacy will be guarded.
What if I don’t know my next steps?
That is okay. Actually, that is expected. Most women and men facing an unintended pregnancy are not sure what to do next. You can come to our clinic and discuss your next steps. This will include conversations about your pregnancy options so you can feel educated and empowered to make your own decision.
