Pregnancy Tests

If you think you may be pregnant, it can be a lot to process. You might be feeling scared, confused, or simply overwhelmed. At PRC we know how important it is to have results you can trust. We offer free and confidential pregnancy testing to any woman who thinks she may be facing a pregnancy.

Home pregnancy tests continue to improve in their accuracy as technology advances, but several variables may affect your results. For a test to give you an accurate result, it must be taken correctly and at the right time. Tests that are administered incorrectly have a much higher likelihood of providing a false result. At PRC, we will repeat a pregnancy test for no charge. 

When you come to PRC you will be treated with respect and a warm greeting. You will then meet with a client advocate in a private setting. Your pregnancy appointment will last for about an hour.  During this time, your advocate will get to know you and listen to your story. Then, with your advocate’s instruction, you will do a self-administered pregnancy test that consists of you giving a sample of urine.  A timer will be set for 3 minutes; then together you and your advocate will look at the test results.

Depending on the results of your test, your advocate will help you process and explore all of your options.


If your pregnancy test comes back positive and you are more than an estimated six weeks pregnant, we can provide you with a limited ultrasound exam.

An ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to reveal the contents of your uterus, determine fetal heartbeat and see how many weeks along you are in your pregnancy. We provide limited obstetrical ultrasound to discover three things about your pregnancy:

  1. Fetus Viability -- During your ultrasound, your nurse will look for and measure the fetal heart rate and check to see that the pregnancy is progressing normally inside of your uterus. Once a heart rate is established, a pregnancy is generally considered to be viable.
  2. Location of the Pregnancy -- To safely carry a pregnancy to term, the pregnancy must be located in the uterus. If the pregnancy has implanted somewhere outside of the uterus, like in the fallopian tubes, there will not be enough room for the pregnancy to develop fully. If allowed to continue, the pregnancy could pose a threat to you.
  3. Age of the Fetus -- Depending on how far along the pregnancy is, your options may change. We estimate how far along the pregnancy is to give you more accurate information on the options available to you.

After an ultrasound, it is time to start considering all your options. Our nurses and client advocates are here to answer all of your questions about parenting, adoption, and abortion. 

Options Advising

After an ultrasound, it is time for you to start considering all of your options. Our client advocates are here to answer all of your questions or those of your loved ones.  Our client advocate will speak with you about parenting, adoption, and abortion – focusing on accuracy and without judgement. If you choose to have the baby, we can help you throughout the pregnancy and after.  If adoption is your choice, we will help you find the right agency to work with.

STI Testing

If you are sexually active and have concerns, we provide limited testing for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. During your appointment you will be asked to provide a urine sample that will be sent out to The Center for Disease Detection. PRC will receive your results within 48 hrs.  Although currently we do not provide treatment for positive results, we will provide a referral for further evaluation and treatment. It is our priority to ensure you are getting the healthcare you need when faced with an STI diagnosis.

Reproductive Loss Support

There is no right or wrong way to feel after a woman loses a baby through a miscarriage, stillbirth, infant death, adoption or abortion. Every woman’s experience is unique as is that of her loved ones. Relief, anger, sadness, confusion, and hope can all exist at one time. This may be overwhelming, but it is also normal. If a woman or man is looking for emotional support after their loss, no matter how long after, PRC will help them through a variety of means, one-on-one or group sessions. Giving a voice to your abortion experience can change how you view the decision that you made and give you courage to live in your freedom. We are here for you day or night.
