Am I Pregnant?
Missing your period can be upsetting if you’re not planning a pregnancy. But, if you’re sexually active, you can become pregnant. If you suspect you may be pregnant, it’s important to confirm your pregnancy early with an accurate pregnancy test. Here are some common signs of pregnancy, but please be aware that there are other medical conditions that can cause these symptoms: Missed period, slight bleeding, swollen/tender breasts, fatigue/tiredness, nausea/morning sickness, backaches, headaches, frequent urination, darkening of nipples, food craving or food aversions and dizziness.
If you’re in the Finger Lakes Region and you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, visit PRC of the Valleys for a pregnancy test. If your test result is positive, Pregnancy Resource Center may follow up with a limited ultrasound referral to determine more about your options. All services are free of charge.
If you’re in Southern NY and you think you’re pregnant, verify your pregnancy with a pregnancy test at PRC of the Valleys, Inc. Our pregnancy tests are 99% accurate, medical-quality and free of charge. Even if you have taken a home test, visit one of our Centers. Our tests are more accurate than many over-the-counter varieties and able to detect hCG (the hormone released during pregnancy) earlier than most tests on the market.
What If I Have A Positive Test At Home?
The pregnancy tests offered at PRC of the Valleys are medical-quality and may be more accurate than the home test you have already taken. However, only a licensed physician can diagnose pregnancy. If you have a positive test at PRC of the Valleys, you may qualify for an onsite limited obstetrical ultrasound referral to determine more about your options.
How Many Weeks?
If you have a positive pregnancy test, the next step is to determine how far along you may be. You will need to know the first day of your last period even though conception could have been several days after your period ended. A Client Advocate at PRC of the Valleys will make a referral for an onsite limited obstetrical ultrasound (at no cost to you), which will give you an estimated due date based on your last menstrual cycle. If you’re planning on having an abortion, you’ll need to know how many weeks pregnant you are, as this will determine your abortion options.
