How do I know if I’m pregnant?
Are you wondering if you’re pregnant after having unprotected sex? There is a chance that you could be pregnant. To be sure, you will want to take a pregnancy test, followed by a limited ultrasound. We offer both of these pregnancy services, for free at our center. Even before taking a test, however, you can look for early signs of pregnancy which include:
- A missed period
- Tender, swollen breasts
- Frequent urination
- Food aversions
- Cramping or spotting
Any of these symptoms may point to pregnancy. We recommend contacting us to schedule an appointment for a free pregnancy test to get answers today.

When do I need to have an ultrasound?
After receiving a positive pregnancy test result, the next step is to have an ultrasound. A limited ultrasound will confirm the pregnancy and provide more information to help guide you as you consider your pregnancy options.
When Should I Take a Pregnancy Test?
It’s best to wait at least one week after your missed period for the most accurate pregnancy test results. Pregnancy tests look for hCG – the “pregnancy hormone” – to determine if you are pregnant or not. In the early stages of pregnancy, your hCG levels double every 72 hours, so you’ll receive the most accurate results after at least a week.
Do I really need an ultrasound?
Yes – an ultrasound is vital! An ultrasound not only helps confirm pregnancy but can also help determine the viability of the pregnancy. An ultrasound is an amazing tool that can be used to help you make the best decision regarding your pregnancy. We offer free ultrasounds at the PHC so you can get the answers you need to make an informed decision about your unplanned pregnancy.
