PREGNANCY

Do you take walk-ins or do I need to make an appointment?

Yes, walk-ins are our primary form of visits. For pregnancy tests, we ask that you arrive at least one hour before closing. STD testing is on a first-come, first-serve basis with a limited amount of appointment times available. Sonograms are done by appointment only. To make an STD appointment, please call ahead.

I already took a home test that was positive, do I still need to come in and get tested?

It is best to have a home test verified by a clinical test. Our pregnancy tests are lab quality, similar to what you’d find in a doctor’s office. (Note: we provide urine tests only and do not offer blood tests for pregnancy). If your test is positive, we can talk about scheduling an ultrasound to determine if the pregnancy is viable and how far along you are. After the sonogram, you will have the information you need to make an informed decision regarding your pregnancy.

How much does everything cost?

Most all services, including STD tests, pregnancy tests, limited ultrasound, parenting classes, and material support, are free. Our counseling services are available for the low cost of $20 for your initial appointment and $10 for each session after that. If this cost is an issue, please contact our office at 316-945-9400.

Do you perform abortions?

If you are considering an abortion, Embrace offers free and confidential pregnancy testing and ultrasounds to determine if your pregnancy is viable. A non-viable pregnancy will end in a natural  miscarriage meaning you won’t need an abortion. Through the ultrasound we can also learn how far along you are which is a necessary step in deciding the best options for your future.

Can I bring a friend in with me?

Whether it be a friend, family member, or father-of-the-baby, we understand the need for moral support. For your privacy we will meet with you individually at first and then invite your friend back later when you’re comfortable.

What do I need to bring before my visit?

You will need a driver’s license or some other form of ID that we will copy for our personal records. Your privacy is important to us and we do not share any information without your permission.

I had sex last night and think I might be pregnant, can I come in today for a test?

Our tests are accurate within 7-10 days after conception. Conception generally occurs approximately 14 days after your period starts. Therefore we suggest you wait until you’ve missed your period before coming in for a test.

Will you call my parents?

Your confidentiality is a priority at Embrace. We never give out personal information without your consent.

How long will my appointment be?

To allow for the best care, we suggest you plan to be here for 45-60 minutes.

Can I find out the sex of my baby in my free ultrasound?

The limited ultrasounds we provide are intended to confirm a pregnancy after a positive pregnancy test, not find out the baby’s sex. We encourage you to find a doctor in the area to follow-up on the rest of your medical care.

Do I Need To Make An Appointment?

All other patients are seen on a walk-in, first come, first served basis starting when the doors open at 10 AM both Tuesday & Wednesday. We advise you get here as early as possible & have flexibility in your day to provide a better opportunity of being seen.

What kind of STD testing do you do?

We test for Herpes & Genital Warts (Visual exam only); Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Trichomoniasis, HIV & Syphilis.

How long does it take to get my results back?

Test results return in 1-2 weeks depending on which test performed.

What if the results are positive?

You will receive the treatment needed by medication in the office, by prescription or referral.

Can I get my results over the phone?

We want to ensure you receive good medical education and treatment regarding your results. Therefore, you will receive a follow-up appointment to obtain your results.

How do I know if I have been exposed to an STD?

If you have engaged in sexual activity, you have been exposed to the possibility of a STD.

Can I get my medicine today?

In the practice of good health care, we need to know and perform a full assessment before we can prescribe medication. This process takes about 1-2 weeks and includes a follow-up appointment with a physician.

Can I get medicine for my partner if I’m positive?

Medication will only be given to an individual following their personal assessment with the physician. It’s best for your partner to come in for their own exam in order to provide the best care for their individual needs.
