If you’ve had unprotected sex and are worried you might be pregnant, it’s important not to panic. Before you worry about your next steps, make sure to verify your pregnancy through a pregnancy test. At First Step Women’s Center, we can provide you with a no-cost on-site pregnancy test and discuss your results with you right away.
Am I Pregnant?
Sometimes, it can be hard to tell if you’re pregnant – especially if you haven’t missed a period yet. There are a few signs and symptoms that are often associated with an early pregnancy, which include:
- Missed period
- Swollen, tender breasts
- Frequent urination
- Food aversions
The only way to know for sure if you’re pregnant is to take a pregnancy test.
How Does a Pregnancy Test Work?
Our lab-quality pregnancy tests detect the pregnancy hormone hCG in urine. Pregnancy tests are most accurate if taken at least one week after your missed period.
What If I’ve Already Taken a Home Pregnancy Test?
While home pregnancy tests are about 99% accurate if taken correctly, there’s still a chance for error. If you take your test too early or take it incorrectly, it can produce false negatives. When you make an appointment with us, we will perform a lab-quality test to ensure your results are accurate.

If you have a positive pregnancy test, your next step is to get an ultrasound. An ultrasound reveals three important details of pregnancy including the viability of your pregnancy, how far along you are and the location of the pregnancy. Learn more about ultrasounds and how they can provide insight into your pregnancy.
