When you come for a pregnancy test, you will be asked to leave a urine sample in a small cup in our guest bathroom. You will leave the cup in the bathroom and the counselor or a nurse will run a pregnancy test. The at home pregnancy tests or the period and fertility apps are good indicators and they can be fairly accurate. But nothing beats a professional performing a medical-grade pregnancy test for you. This will measure the hCG hormone (human chorionic gonadotropin otherwise known as the pregnancy hormone) in your urine. We will be able to confirm the results of that test within a few minutes.
After that your counselor will meet you back in the counseling room to deliver the results. Typically, a nurse or nurse practitioner is available to answer any medical questions you may have. At this time, your support person may join you in the counseling room. Whether the test is positive or negative, we will be providing resources to you for next steps. Your health is our top priority.
