If you’ve had unprotected sex and are experiencing strange symptoms, you might be wondering if you’re pregnant.
Symptoms like a missed menstrual period, tender or swollen breasts, frequent urination, nausea, or food cravings can all indicate pregnancy. However, not all women will experience early pregnancy symptoms. And these symptoms can also have other causes.
The only way to know for sure if you’re pregnant is through pregnancy testing. At Woman to Woman, we offer free, lab-quality pregnancy testing in a welcoming, confidential space. All appointments and resources are free.
How Does Pregnancy Testing Work?
When you’re pregnant, the placenta produces a special hormone called HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin). The levels of this hormone rise steadily after the moment of conception (when the sperm meets the egg).
Pregnancy testing works by detecting HCG levels in your urine or blood.
At Woman to Woman, one of our compassionate nurses will administer the pregnancy test and go over your results with you.
What Happens If I’m Pregnant?
If your pregnancy test comes back positive, you will be offered a free ultrasound. This is the second step to confirming your pregnancy.
An ultrasound is a simple scan that can help reveal critical details you need to know to stay safe, including the age, location, and viability of your pregnancy.
You will also be offered a free Pregnancy Options Consultation. During this safe, non-judgmental appointment, you will be given medically-backed information about each of your pregnancy options. And you’ll be given the space to ask questions.
Wondering whether you’re facing an unplanned pregnancy can fill you with anxiety and questions, but we’re here to provide clarity and answers.
Contact Woman to Woman to schedule your free pregnancy testing appointment today. You’re not alone in this. We’re here for you and will walk you through every step of the way.
