Free and Confidential Pregnancy Testing
If you think you might be pregnant, you want confidence you are getting the right results from a pregnancy test. At the Women’s Resource Center of NE, Wyoming, we offer free lab-quality pregnancy testing to ensure that your results are accurate. Our registered nurses will administer your test and verify your results. You will have the confidence you need.
When to Take a Pregnancy Test
You may panic and feel pressure to take a test right away. But, your body needs time to build up the human pregnancy hormone known as hCG. This hormone is produced right after a fertilized egg attaches to the wall of the uterus. The hormone is usually elevated about six days after fertilization and continues to rise. If you take a pregnancy test too early, you may get a false negative result because the level of hCG in your urine has not built up yet.
If your menstrual cycle is like clockwork, you can usually take a pregnancy test a couple of days after your missed period. We suggest waiting 5 to 7 days if your periods are often irregular. By waiting longer, you will be able to get a more accurate urine sample.
What You Can Expect at Our Center
During your appointment with the Women’s Resource Center, you will be asked to provide a urine sample. One of our nurses will then take that sample and administer the test. This only takes a few minutes, and you should have your results before the end of your appointment.
The Test Is Positive, Now What?
If you have received a positive pregnancy test from the Women’s Resource Center, your next step is to have a free limited obstetrical ultrasound. Ultrasounds allow you to be 100 % sure that your result is accurate, and you are pregnant. In addition, an ultrasound gives you the vital information you will need before making a decision about your unplanned pregnancy.
Additional Free Services
Along with free pregnancy testing and a free ultrasound, you will also receive a free, confidential consultation with our trained client advocates. We want you to have as much information as possible so you can make a truly informed decision.
Also, the Women’s Resource Center recommends scheduling free STI testing. If you have an STI when pregnant, it can lead to complications for you and your child during birth.
