Pregnancy

Pregnancy begins when the male’s sperm fertilizes or joins with the female’s ovum (egg). The average duration of pregnancy is 38-42 weeks and is divided into 3 trimesters: 1 day-12 weeks; 13-26 weeks; and 26 weeks-birth. You might be pregnant if:

  • You have missed one or more menstrual periods
  • Your breasts are swollen and/or tender
  • You are nauseated or have had a change in appetite
  • You are tired or dizzy
  • You have to urinate more often
  • You have recently gained or lost weight

Free Pregnancy Tests

The test we offer is a self-administered urine test to determine pregnancy hormone levels sufficient to indicate pregnancy.

  • The test may be positive as early as 7-9 days after conception. It is important that you know the start date of your last period when you come in.
  • You will provide a urine sample at the time of your pregnancy test. You do not need to bring a specimen with you when you come.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs)

Many serious diseases can be spread from person to person through sex. Some, like gonorrhea and chlamydia, can be cured with medicines and others, like herpes and AIDS, can be helped but not gotten rid of completely. Do you think you might have been exposed to an STD? Call and come in to talk with one of our counselors. We offer free urine screening for the 2 most common curable STDs and can arrange for confidential testing for you now.

  • What about you?
  • Have you just discovered that your partner might have an STD?
  • Have you seen the pages on this site about sexually transmitted diseases? Do you think you might have one?
  • Have you experienced abortion or supported a girlfriend’s decision to abort her baby in the past? How do you feel about it?

Do you feel okay about your relationship? Do pressures and worries take over?

  • You’re at college, and there’s still a long way to go?
  • You weren’t that serious about the relationship?
  • The responsibility of a child or dealing with an STD seems overwhelming?
  • What about your partner? What if he’s just not ready?

We care about women and the men they’ve been involved with. Does he need someone to talk to? We have trained male peer counselors who can meet with your partner about questions like these. Look through the information on this site and give us a call at 585-235-0690. We want to help.
