Think you might be pregnant?
It can be scary to be all alone and worry that you are pregnant so the sooner you can find out the better. If you think you might be pregnant, you should do a pregnancy test as soon as possible, since this is the only way to know for sure whether you are pregnant or not. In a caring, private setting your trained peer counselor will walk you through the steps for your test and will talk with you about your results and options.
The pregnancy test can quickly determine whether or not a woman is pregnant. These tests are effective even early in the pregnancy. The method uses immunochromatography to measure a certain hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), produced by the placenta. The test can detect a positive pregnancy as early as 7-10 days after conception. The test is very specific, meaning other hormones or substances do not interfere with the results. You will receive the results during your appointment. After a positive test result, see your doctor for confirmation of pregnancy. You may come back and receive a retest at any time.
If you aren't sure what to do, or even where to begin, we also have trained volunteers available with information about all of your options. We genuinely care about you and are ready to help, please contact us for an appointment or drop by our office.
