Frequently Asked Questions

Do I Need An Ultrasound?

Yes! If you received a positive pregnancy test and lab-quality pregnancy testing at our center, an ultrasound is necessary to confirm essential details of your pregnancy. Confirming them will determine your pregnancy options and alert you to any possible pregnancy complications.

An ultrasound will confirm the viability of your pregnancy (whether it’s healthy and growing), the location of your pregnancy (if it’s growing within your uterus), and gestational age (how far along you are). Set up a free pregnancy confirmation appointment with us today.

How Do I Know I’m Pregnant?

You may be noticing symptoms including nausea, tender breasts, mood swings, or frequent urination. These are all common signs of early pregnancy. There are two steps to the pregnancy confirmation process: pregnancy testing and an ultrasound.

While lab-quality pregnancy testing is your first step, it cannot tell you all there is to know about your pregnancy details. Make sure to also receive a free ultrasound at our center to confirm viability, location of your pregnancy, and gestational age.

When Should I Take A Pregnancy Test?

The Mayo Clinic shares that the best time to take a pregnancy test is at least one week after your missed period. Your body takes time to produce a detectable amount of HCG, the pregnancy hormone.

The earlier you take a pregnancy test, the harder it is for the test to detect HCG in your urine. To be sure of your pregnancy test results, get lab-quality pregnancy testing. We offer free and confidential pregnancy testing at our center today.

What Are the Risks of Abortion?

With each type of abortion procedure comes unique risks. The Mayo Clinic shares potential risks of medical abortion, including incomplete abortion, extreme bleeding, infection, fever, gastrointestinal upset, and more.

The Cleveland Clinic shares potential risks of surgical abortion, including injury to the cervical and uterus regions, extreme bleeding, infection, fever, scarring, incomplete abortion, and more.
