Some Reasons to Visit Assure Before Your Doctor if You Think You Might Be Pregnant
Some women are thrilled to find out they are pregnant. Others, not so much. However, in all cases, it is helpful to have accurate information before telling family and friends, or even before making a decision about the pregnancy. Why stir up a lot of excitement or trouble until it is necessary, right?
If you KNOW you are pregnant, and are happy about it, the best place to go is your doctor. You need to get under medical care as soon as you can. However, if you don’t know, or if you’re not positive what you will choose to do, Assure Women’s Center is your best first step.
If you are still under your parent’s insurance or even if you have your own (or are on Medicaid) here are some reasons you might prefer Assure for your pregnancy test rather than your physician:
1. At Assure, you can get an early urine pregnancy test, run by our medical professionals, at no cost.
2. At Assure, if your test is positive, you can also get a free obstetric ultrasound to confirm viability and find out how far along your pregnancy is.
3. Since the services at Assure are free and completely confidential (we are HIPAA compliant!) you won’t have to worry about anyone finding out about your pregnancy until you are ready to tell them.
4. At Assure, you can receive information on all your options, as well as asking the nurse any of your medical questions. This is an opportunity to speak to someone who cares about you, in a safe, non-judgmental and friendly place.
Please note: Assure Women’s Center is not trying to take the place of your doctor. We cannot provide the pre-natal care that you will need. In addition, if you are bleeding or cramping, you need to see a doctor as soon as you can.
However, if you simply think you might be pregnant, Assure can provide you with a reliable pregnancy test and ultrasound. The medical team can answer your questions. And, you will leave with a comprehensive plan for what you should do next. To make an appointment at either of our Omaha centers or our location in Council Bluffs, please call 402-397-0600.
