If you have had unprotected sex and think you might be pregnant, we are your best first step. Assure Women’s Center can provide you with an on-site, free pregnancy test. To get started, schedule an appointment or contact our center.
When is the best time to take a pregnancy test?
It is best to wait until after you have missed a period before having a pregnancy test taken. In fact, the most effective time to take a pregnancy test is when you are two weeks late for your period when they are 90% accurate.
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 compassionate 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 offer STD testing services for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea if you have a positive pregnancy test and can provide you with referrals for any other testing you may need.
Additionally, we will provide information on all your options. We will answer questions on abortion procedures, adoption options, and parenting. If you test positive for pregnancy at our clinic, we also are able to perform an ultrasound on-site at no cost to you.
