If you have had unprotected sex and think you might be pregnant, we are your best first step. Positive Options can provide you with an on-site, free pregnancy testing. To get started, schedule an appointment or contact our center.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO TAKE A PREGNANCY TEST?
It is better to wait until after you have missed a period before taking a pregnancy test. The most effective time to take a pregnancy test is when you are two weeks late for your period.
A missed period is often the first sign of pregnancy. For more early signs, check out a list of common pregnancy symptoms.
HOW DOES A PREGNANCY TEST WORK?
A pregnancy test detects the hormone known as hCG, which is found in the urine of women who are pregnant. One of our staff members will administer the test and discuss your results with you immediately following the test.
IF I AM PREGNANT, WHAT SHOULD I DO NEXT?
If you have had unprotected sex, you might be at risk for an STD/STI. A Sexually Transmitted Infection can cause serious harm to you and your pregnancy if left untreated. We do not offer STD testing services for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea if you have a positive pregnancy test but we can provide you with referrals for testing in your area.
Additionally, we will provide you with information on all your options. We will answer questions on parenting, adoption options, abortion, and abortion procedures. If you test positive for pregnancy at our center we also are able to perform an ultrasound on-site at no cost to you.
