Frequently Asked Questions

When should I get an ultrasound?

After receiving a positive result from one of our Center’s pregnancy tests, your initial medical appointment includes a free ultrasound. This is essential to getting as much information about your pregnancy as possible. Ultrasound reveals how far along you are, your pregnancy’s location, and if your pregnancy is growing or you’ve had a miscarriage.

How do I know if I am pregnant?

A late period is usually the first sign of pregnancy, although you can miss a period for several reasons. Other early symptoms include tender breasts, frequent urination, fatigue, and nausea. Every woman’s pregnancy is as unique as she is, so getting a medical-grade pregnancy test is your first step. We offer free and confidential pregnancy testing.

What are the signs of an STD?

Many STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) do not have immediate signs or symptoms. As a result, many people do not get tested until the disease has progressed. The Mayo Clinic lists possible signs of the most common STDs and recommends regular screening. Even if you or your partner have no immediate symptoms, you can still pass an STD to one another. Talk to us about testing and treatment.

How much does an appointment cost?

Because of the generosity of your neighbors, all of our services are provided for free. We value your health and safety and want you to receive the best care possible.

What if I don’t know what to do?

Our peer counselors are trained to help you sort through the decisions you face and make the one that is best for you. But most of all, we listen.
