If you’re wondering whether you’re pregnant, you probably have a lot of questions swirling in your head right now.
- “Am I really pregnant?”
- “Is my partner going to support me?”
- “How will I finish school or work?”
- “What are my pregnancy options?”
- “How can I know for sure?”
This is understandable, and how you feel today may not be the same as in a day, week, or a month from now. At this moment, the idea of being pregnant is overwhelming.
Free Pregnancy Testing
Lab-quality pregnancy testing is an essential first step if you think you may be pregnant. Even if you have taken a home pregnancy test, you should confirm the results with one of our Center tests.
Although over-the-counter tests are reliable, women take them at the wrong time or don’t carefully follow directions. Our team will administer the test correctly.
How Does A Pregnancy Test Work?
When you’re pregnant, your body produces a hormone called hCG, human chorionic gonadotropin. After an egg is fertilized and implants in a woman’s uterus, hCG begins to build up rapidly in her blood and urine.
You are most likely pregnant if our pregnancy test detects hCG in your urine.
When Should I Take A Pregnancy Test?
You will get the most accurate results if you take a pregnancy test after your missed period. If your period is regularly every 28-30 days, take the test a day or two after you expected your period to start.
If your monthly cycle usually is irregular, wait 5 or 6 days to take the test. Because our tests are more sensitive than others, you can get an accurate result earlier.
What Do I Do If The Test Is Positive?
If your free pregnancy test shows a positive result, we can refer you for a free ultrasound as well.
An ultrasound is vital if you are considering abortion. Ohio’s law bans abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected, usually around 5 or 6 weeks. Ultrasound identifies how far along you are in your pregnancy.
