A pregnancy test is the first way to confirm you are pregnant. Although home pregnancy tests are reliable, some women take them too soon or don't follow the directions completely. We recommend you visit a pregnancy resource center near you for a lab-quality test. Contact us for information about the nearest center in your area.
There is so much more to know about your pregnancy. You need answers to questions like, "How far along am I?" "Is the pregnancy growing?" and "Where is the pregnancy located?" The only way to find out this information is with an ultrasound. At Empowered Choices, we can put you in touch with a facility that does ultrasounds in your area. Find out more about ultrasound.
You can very possibly have a sexually transmitted disease (STD) and not even know it. If you're sexually active, especially with more than one partner, getting regularly tested for STDs is important. Many are easily treated with antibiotics if caught soon enough. Without testing, the disease could cause organ damage, infertility, or worse. At Empowered Choices, we can put you in touch with a facility in your area that tests and treats STDs. Find out more.
