Pregnancy Pregnant

Why come in for a pregnancy test?

If you have missed a period, you may begin to suspect that you are pregnant.  It can be an uneasy feeling—waiting and wondering.  While some people go to the drugstore for a pregnancy test, many are left with more uneasy feelings after taking the test at home: Did I do it right?  Could it be wrong?  How many should I do?  Our clients often tell us these things.

What can the Pregnancy Clinic do for you?  The Pregnancy Clinic offers a free, laboratory grade, pregnancy test, someone to run it for you, and someone to talk to about your options.  In addition, if you are taken off-guard by a possible pregnancy, you might be considering abortion.  If that is the case, a test alone may not be all you need.  A pregnancy test alone cannot determine if your pregnancy is viable, (meaning having a good chance of surviving). The test can detect whether or not the pregnancy hormone (HCG) is present in your urine, but a viability ultrasound is necessary to determine whether or not a living and growing baby is present. Some positive pregnancy tests do not result in a viable pregnancy!

If you are considering abortion, we can provide a pregnancy ultrasound after your positive test. This will help you determine if the pregnancy is heading towards survival or miscarriage.  If your pregnancy is not viable, the pregnancy may not survive on its own, sparing you from the emotional and financial burdens of an abortion.

We are here to help you in this difficult time.  All of our services are free.  Text us today for your appointment: 443.333.8856.
