Facing an unexpected pregnancy can be overwhelming. You might feel confused, angry, afraid, or alone. If you are pregnant or think you might be pregnant, Embrace is here to empower you to make an informed decision. Message us for an appointment or come in during walk-in hours for a free laboratory-quality urine pregnancy test.
How Does A Pregnancy Test Work?
Pregnancy tests detect the pregnancy hormone known as human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in your urine. This hormone is produced right after a fertilized egg attaches to the wall of a woman’s uterus. If it’s found in a woman’s urine, she is pregnant.
Isn’t My At-Home Test Good Enough?
Over-the-counter pregnancy tests are reliable. However, some tests are more sensitive than others. It’s essential to take the test at the right time of the month and day to get an accurate result.
We offer lab-quality clinical pregnancy tests, similar to what you would receive in a doctor’s office. And they are free!
You May Not Be Pregnant
Believe it or not, you can have a positive pregnancy test but not have a viable pregnancy. Viable means the pregnancy is growing with a detectable heartbeat.
The Mayo Clinic reports that anywhere from 10 to 20% of known pregnancies end in a natural miscarriage. The number may be higher, since many women miscarry before realizing they’re pregnant. Your body takes time to clear out the pregnancy hormones, so it’s entirely possible to get a positive result several days after the miscarriage.
If your pregnancy test is positive, we’ll provide you with a no-cost limited ultrasound exam. Ultrasound is the only way to confirm your pregnancy is viable and you haven’t miscarried.
Come In For Free Pregnancy Testing
Walk-ins are always welcome. For pregnancy tests, we ask that you arrive at least one hour before closing to be seen. Please make necessary childcare arrangements before your appointment as children are not allowed in exam rooms.
