Is It Important to Get Tested for STD’s Before Having an Abortion?

At Assure Women's Center, we only provide testing for two sexually transmitted diseases, chlamydia and gonorrhea. We also only provide this testing to our patients who receive a positive result on the pregnancy test.  Why is this? And, why do we only test for these two diseases? Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are the two most common STD's out there today. They are bacterial diseases which commonly reside in the vaginal opening. We feel that it is imperative for the pregnant women that come to us to know if they have either one of these two diseases, particularly if they are considering having an abortion. Let me explain why. Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are dangerous even if they remain outside the body. Howeve ...read more

At Assure Women's Center, we are committed to giving you the answers you need. Only you can make the final decision concerning the outcome of your pregnancy.

Assure purchases the most reliable pregnancy tests on the market, which are run by one of the excellent members of our medical team.

How Soon After Birth Can You Get Pregnant Again?

You've just given birth to a new baby! Your little one is only three months old, but you feel like you might be pregnant again. Is that possible? Yes, it is. Some experts say that unless a woman is breastfeeding full time, the time right after giving birth can be one of the most fertile. Therefore, caution needs to be taken. Of course, it is not recommended to resume sex until at least four weeks after giving birth (6 weeks if you've had a C-section.) However, after that point, a new pregnancy could easily occur. If you think you might be pregnant, Assure is your best first step! We can provide a free pregnancy test, as well as an ultrasound so you can know exactly how far along you are, or if the pregnancy is viable (will continue.) We would love to help at eithe ...read more


If You are a Teenager, Does Your Parent Need to Come With You for a Pregnancy Test?

You are sixteen and you think you might be pregnant. You want to call Assure Women's Center to find out for sure. However, you don't want your mother to find out. What should you do? Actually, the law states that young women are considered as adults as far as getting help with reproductive matters. That includes pregnancy tests. Not only can you come alone for our services, but it is against HIPAA regulations for anyone to tell your parents without your consent. No matter how old you are, pregnancy is a big area to tackle all by yourself. Therefore, it might be a good idea to include a parent or grandparent (or even an aunt or other trusted friend or relative) in what is going on.  However, at Assure you can get a pregnancy test and an ultrasound even if you come ...read more


Should You Get a Pregnancy Test if Your Period Lasted Only One or Two Days?

Your periods are usually normal. Yet last month it only lasted one or two days. Should you be concerned? Do you need a pregnancy test? Well, it all depends. In that short time, was your flow heavy or was it light? Shorter periods are sometimes normal. And, the heavier it was, the more likely it is that you are probably not pregnant. Another question you need to consider is if you are on some type of hormonal birth control (pill, patch, ring, etc.) With some of these it is normal to have a shorter and lighter period (or even none at all.) No matter what, it is probably smart to wait and see what happens with your next period. In the great majority of cases, if you are pregnant your period will stop altogether. Your body needs sufficient time to build up enough of the Hcg factor tha ...read more


Sometimes It Helps to Talk to a Compassionate Stranger

I don't know about you, but sometimes I find it easier to tell things to strangers than those that I know the best. I don't mean strangers off the street. I mean medical professionals, like doctors and nurses, or even counselors. They aren't going to get mad at me when I share things I am afraid to say, especially when I think my news might bring disappointment or pain. At Assure Women's Center, we seek to be "compassionate strangers" to those who think they might be pregnant, but want to get accurate, honest answers before telling the people they love. Under some circumstances, an unexpected pregnancy can cause strong feelings to arise for family members and partners. Sometimes it is good to talk things through with a person who is a professional, but is also a caring ...read more


Do You Need to Make an Appointment At Assure or Can You Walk In?

Assure Women's Center offers free pregnancy testing six days a week. The hours available include evening and weekend hours, and two locations in Omaha (65th and Sorensen and just south of Oakview Mall, near 144th and F Streets,) plus one in Council Bluffs. A question that is often asked is if women can just walk in or if they need to make an appointment. The answer to both questions is "yes."  However, it is strongly recommended that an appointment is made. Assure has a limited number of appointment times available. If the pregnancy test is positive, an ultrasound is also offered. To accomplish both requires about an hour's time.  Many days our Centers are full to capacity, making it difficult to fit in someone who walks in without an appointment, ...read more
