FAQ's Q. Do you charge for your services? A. All our services are free, including pregnancy, limited obstetric ultrasound, and education classes.
Q. Should I make an appointment before coming in? A. Appointments are helpful but not required. We strongly suggest you make an appointment for pregnancy testing. You can call the Center or request an appointment on this site.
Q. How long will my appointment take? A. Plan on a minimum of 30 minutes for a pregnancy test.
Q. What are the symptoms of early pregnancy? A. Some symptoms of early pregnancy may include a missed period, nausea and morning sickness, swollen or tender breasts, and fatigue. Q. Are you a medical clinic and will I be seen by a doctor? A. We’re a licensed medical clinic and our Medical Director is a licensed Obstetrician/Gynecologist. Pregnancy tests are administered by a Registered Nurse. If you have a positive pregnancy test here at the clinic, you can receive a free, limited ultrasound with the R.N. (if at least six weeks pregnant). The doctor does not perform medical exams. Q. Is your pregnancy test the same as I can purchase in the store? A. Our urine pregnancy test is more sensitive than most home tests to detect hormone levels in early pregnancy. We do not do blood work.
Q. Can I make an appointment for ultrasound only? A. The first step is to make an appointment for a free pregnancy test. If your test is positive, a registered nurse will determine if you’re a candidate for ultrasound. Ultrasound is done to verify a viable pregnancy. Q. When will I get my Pregnancy results? A. The R.N. will give you your pregnancy test results immediately. Q. What kind of counseling services do you provide? A. Our trained, volunteer client advocates can listen to your feelings and concerns about your pregnancy. We do not provide professional counseling services, and can refer you to outside professional counselors, including post-abortion counseling if needed. Q. What are the potential side effects of abortion? A. Some potential side effects may include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and cramping, dizziness, fatigue, spotting and bleeding.
