If you think you might be pregnant and you weren’t planning to be, don’t panic! Instead, the first thing you should do is take a pregnancy test. We offer free pregnancy testing so you can start to get the answers you need before jumping to any conclusions.
It’s possible to experience common pregnancy symptoms without being pregnant. A late period, nausea, fatigue, and tender breasts can all be caused by other factors even though they are also pregnancy symptoms. If your pregnancy test comes back negative, you’ll want to visit a doctor to see what else might be at play.
Free Pregnancy Testing
We offer free, lab-quality pregnancy testing with tests that have a 99% accuracy rate. A pregnancy test works by detecting and measuring the levels of hCG in your body. hCG is commonly referred to as “the pregnancy hormone” because it only produced when you’re pregnant. Your hCG levels can double every two days, so to get the most accurate results, it’s best to wait until at least one week after your missed period.
What If My Test Comes Back Positive?
If your test comes back positive, your next step is to get an ultrasound. This will answer important questions about the pregnancy that will inform any decisions you make. An unplanned pregnancy means you have a few different options to choose from, and an ultrasound will provide more information.
We provide free ultrasounds at Hope Women’s Center. If your test comes back positive, we’ll offer one to you so you can know as much as possible about your pregnancy.
