Frequently asked questions

I’m struggling in my relationship, can you help?

Yes! We’ve mentored thousands in healthy relationship building skills. Relationships can be hard, but we are here to help.

 

When should I get an ultrasound?

After you have received a positive pregnancy test, it may be time to get a limited obstetric ultrasound. An ultrasound can diagnose pregnancy, determine how far along you are and detect a fetal heartbeat. 

 

How do I know if I am pregnant?

Because each woman and each pregnancy is unique, symptoms may vary. However, the most common sign of pregnancy is a missed period. If you have missed a period, it’s best to make an appointment for a free pregnancy test at our center. Other common pregnancy symptoms include fatigue, nausea, bloating, darkening of the nipples, cramping/spotting, and frequent urination.

 

What are the signs of an STD?

Most STDs do not exhibit unique symptoms, and most symptoms can be mistaken for other illnesses. That’s why it’s important to get tested after unprotected sex. Waiting too long to get tested and treated for an STD puts you and your partner at risk for severe health complications.

 

How much will my appointment cost?

Because we care about your health and wellbeing, your appointment with us is completely free. You do not need to bring any form of payment or health insurance with you to your appointment, just a photo ID.

 

I’m pregnant. What are my options?

If you are pregnant, you have more options than you think. Our caring staff will discuss all your options with you, without judgment. All the resources we provide are completely objective and we’ll provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision regarding your pregnancy.

 

Does my significant other have a say in my decision?

Whether you are a woman or man facing an unexpected pregnancy, you don’t have to go through it alone. You both should have an open discussion regarding your options and make an informed decision together on what to do moving forward. We can help facilitate these conversations and provide you with the information you need.

 

What if I don’t know how to be a good parent?

No one is a parenting expert, but that doesn’t mean you can’t provide your child with love and support. We offer parenting classes to help you learn the ins and outs of being a good parent during each stage of your child’s life. Call us today to learn more about our free parenting program and how it can benefit you.

 

What if I don't live close to the Women's Center?
