Am I Pregnant?
Missing your period can be frightening if you are not planning a pregnancy. But, if you are sexually active, it is possible to become pregnant and it is important to confirm pregnancy early with an accurate pregnancy test. Here are some common signs of pregnancy, but please be aware that there are other medical conditions that can cause these symptoms.
- Missed Periods
- Tender Breasts
- Nausea/Morning Sickness
- Frequent Urination
- Darkening of Nipples
- Food Cravings or Food Aversions
How Many Weeks?
If your pregnancy test is positive at the Pregnancy Resource Center, the next step is to determine how far along you may be. You will need to know the first day of your last period even though conception is usually two weeks later. You will be given an estimated due date based on your last menstrual cycle. From there you may qualify for a free limited ultrasound, which will give you a more accurate measurement of the gestational age of the pregnancy. That information can be very helpful as you make a decision because it can tell you what options are available to you.
Free Pregnancy Tests
The Pregnancy Resource Center offers free pregnancy tests that are 99% accurate and more sensitive than most over-the-counter tests. The result of your pregnancy test will be given to you and we provide a verification form for you to take with you, if needed. If you have a positive pregnancy test at the Center, you may schedule a free ultrasound to determine the status of your pregnancy.
What if I Have a Positive Test at Home?
Even if you have a positive test at home, we require you to take a pregnancy test at the Center. Our pregnancy tests are medical quality and more accurate than most home tests and a positive result will allow us to schedule an ultrasound.
The Pregnancy Resource Center is here to help you confirm your pregnancy with a medical quality pregnancy test and ultrasound. All services provided by the Pregnancy Resource Center are free and your health information is private.
Things to Think About
There is a lot to consider before you make a decision about an unplanned pregnancy. The Pregnancy Resource Center can help you answer these and other questions you may have about your pregnancy and your options.
- Is the pregnancy viable (healthy)?
- How far along are you?
- Is the pregnancy in your uterus? Occasionally, the pregnancy is located somewhere else. This is known as an “ectopic” pregnancy.
