How Do I Know if I’m Pregnant?
If you’ve had sexual intercourse since your last period and are experiencing symptoms of pregnancy, you could be pregnant.
Here are some of the most common signs and symptoms of pregnancy:
Late or Missed Period
Nausea and/or Vomiting
Spotting or Cramping
Feeling lightheaded or dizzy
Food Cravings or Aversions
Increased Sense of Smell
Darkening of Nipples
Sore, Swollen, or Itchy Breasts
If you think you could be pregnant, the first thing you should do is take a pregnancy test. Pregnancy tests detect the presence of hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin), a hormone which is only produced by your body when you are pregnant.
Sometimes it can be hard to get a pregnancy test yourself, or the results are hard to determine. We offer free, confidential pregnancy testing at our clinic in East Liverpool, Ohio. Our tests can detect pregnancy as early as seven days after conception or 21-24 days after your last menstrual period. Call 844-371-4282 to schedule a free and confidential appointment. You won’t be required to give any personal information like your social security number, insurance provider, or proof of financial status.
What Do I Do if I’m Pregnant?
If you are pregnant, you have three options to consider.
1. Parenting - giving birth and raising the child
We offer free parenting education, baby items and referrals to state programs like WIC and health care to help you prepare for parenthood. We can also refer you to mentoring and other assistance programs, when available. We can also provide you with the pregnancy confirmation form that you will need to enroll in state programs.
2. Abortion - ending the pregnancy
Our medical staff will perform a free ultrasound to confirm a viable pregnancy and estimate how far along you are. Finding out how far along your pregnancy is will determine the type of of abortion you can have.
3. Adoption - giving birth and placing your child with someone else to raise
If you are not ready to parent, adoption is a loving option. This gives your child a chance at life with a family who has been praying for them. In most cases you can get financial assistance for medical and living expenses, along with many other benefits.
If you are a minor, we are here to discuss your options and educate you on what you can do with and without parental consent. We are also here to give you support on how to tell your parents and even your partner.
It’s important to know that Ava never financially benefits from your pregnancy decision. We are here to give you judgement-free support, resources and encouragement as you weigh your options. Call 844-371-4282 to schedule a free and confidential appointment.
