Our Pregnancy Tests Are 100% Free
You read that correctly. We do not charge a thing to take a medical-grade pregnancy test at the Pregnancy Resource Center. We believe you have enough concerns right now and buying a pregnancy test shouldn’t be one of them. We also assure you the results of your pregnancy test will remain strictly confidential.
How does a pregnancy test work?
A pregnancy test detects the hormone known as hCG. Pregnant women begin producing hCG shortly after a fertilized egg attaches to the uterine lining. If a pregnancy test is positive, it means hCG was found in the urine of a pregnant woman. Although our tests can detect hCG in urine early on, you are likely to get more reliable results if you wait until a week after your missed period.
When is the best time to take a pregnancy test?
If your menstrual cycle is regular (every 28 to 30 days) and you have been tracking it correctly, you can take a test 1 or 2 days after your missed period. If your menstrual cycle is irregular and varies from month to month, we suggest you wait 6 to 7 days after your estimated missed period. By waiting, you will get a more accurate result from the test.
I took a home pregnancy test. Is that enough?
A positive at-home pregnancy test is a good indicator of pregnancy. It is possible you could have taken the test wrong though. Many women take the over-the-counter pregnancy tests too soon or they don’t read the directions carefully. For instance, if you take a standard pregnancy test with line indicators, it’s important to check the results in the time frame instructed. If you let it sit too long before reading the results, urine on the test can evaporate and make it look like you have two lines instead of just one.
If I am pregnant, what should I do next?
We always suggest confirming your pregnancy with a medical-grade pregnancy test from the Pregnancy Resource Center. Afterward, depending on the results, we can talk about your many options. If you are pregnant, you will be provided with documents needed to secure WIC, Medicaid, and other beneficial resources for you and your baby.
We genuinely care about you and want the best for your future. It costs nothing for the test or to talk. Schedule your appointment today.
