Pregnancy Testing

If you have been sexually active and are concerned about being pregnant, turn to us first. EW participating centers have specially trained staff who really care about you. Services are always compassionate and confidential. You are not alone.

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms pregnancy is a possibility:

  • missed period
  • frequent urination 
  • nausea
  • breast tenderness or enlargement
  • dizziness 
  • change of appetite

EW participating centers provide lab-quality high-sensitivity urine pregnancy testing with instant results (these high-sensitivity tests detect pregnancy as early as 1 day after a missed period). In normal pregnancy, hCG, the hormone present during pregnancy, doubles in quantity approximately every two days.

Pregnancy tests:

  • are done in a clinical and private setting 
  • can be taken 1 day after you miss your period 
  • results will be known during your appointment 

A positive pregnancy test (including those taken at home) suggests a high probability that you are pregnant. The result should be confirmed by an ultrasound exam.

EW participating clinics can provide an ultrasound exam for you at no charge and with no further obligation. Ultrasound is a state-of-the-art way to confirm that you have a viable pregnancy. One in 4 pregnancies ends naturally in a miscarriage, because the pregnancy is not viable. So it’s important that you confirm the presence of a live fetus before you make a decision. Your local participating center utilizes the latest ultrasound technology and scan capabilities.

ALL services are provided on-site with immediate results, free of charge and with no further obligation whatsoever.
