At North Care Women’s Clinic we are experts in pregnancy confirmation. We offer laboratory quality, highly accurate pregnancy testing to verify your pregnancy. Tests can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception, and results are confidential.

When you come in for a free pregnancy test appointment you will meet with someone who can help you to understand the results, talk about your next step, and offer you an ultrasound to confirm the pregnancy if you are eligible.

Whether you’re thinking about parenting, abortion, or adoption, an ultrasound gives you valuable information you need to know, regardless of your decision.

An ultrasound image can determine the gestational age of the pregnancy, whether you have an intrauterine pregnancy, and the viability of the pregnancy.

Gestational age (how far along you are in your pregnancy) may determine which option you choose. An ultrasound will determine gestational age. Click here to read more about the different abortion procedures.

North Care Women’s Clinic does not perform or refer for abortions. We are here to provide abortion education and answer questions you may have. North Care is your first step in making an informed decision about your pregnancy.

If you take the pill as prescribed, it is rare to get pregnant. However, it is not impossible. The hormones in the pill do not affect hCG levels, which is the hormone that urine pregnancy tests look for. You can schedule an appointment for an accurate laboratory quality test with us. Once you learn you’re pregnant, stop taking the birth control pill. There’s very little evidence that exposure to the hormones in birth control pills causes birth defects.

Contact the prescribing physician for guidance on continuing the pill and your pregnancy.

Yes, you can be pregnant and have an STD at the same time. In fact, having an untreated STD while pregnant can cause serious harm to you and your pregnancy.  So you must get tested immediately.

If your monthly cycle is regular (every 28 to 30 days), you can take a test one or two days after your missed period. If your periods are irregular, we suggest waiting five or six days.

The longer you wait, the more accurate your result. Even if you got a positive result from a home pregnancy test, you should verify the results with one of our free tests performed by a medical professional.

North Care Women’s Clinic offers free ultrasounds to women who are pregnant. But why do you need one?

Whether you’re thinking about parenting, abortion or adoption, an ultrasound gives you valuable information you need to know, regardless of your decision.

An ultrasound image can determine the gestational age of the pregnancy, whether you have an intrauterine pregnancy, and the viability of the pregnancy.

Wait, what’s gestational age?

Gestational age is the common term used during pregnancy to describe how far along the pregnancy is. It is measured in weeks, from the first day of the woman's last menstrual cycle to the current date. A normal pregnancy can range from 38 to 42 weeks.

How can an ultrasound tell that?

It is determined by measuring the size of the fetus.

An ultrasound is the most accurate way to date a pregnancy.

I already made my decision, so why do I need to know that?

Your gestational age is an important piece of information to know if you are considering carrying, as you can monitor the progress of your pregnancy at various stages. It is helpful in determining your due date.

If you’re considering abortion, your gestational age also determines what kind of procedure you have.  Read our abortion information for more information about what kind of procedure is performed up to how many weeks.

Got it. What does intrauterine pregnancy mean?

This means that the fetus is developing inside the uterus and that you do not have an ectopic pregnancy, which is a pregnancy outside of the uterus. Learn more about pregnancy complications. 

Ok, so then what’s a viable pregnancy?

A viable pregnancy is a healthy pregnancy inside the uterus that is not ending naturally.  Basically, checking for a viable pregnancy is checking to see if you are having a miscarriage. Learn more about pregnancy complications.

How can an ultrasound tell that?

An ultrasound shows whether the fetus is in the uterus and has a heartbeat, which would show that it is progressing normally.

That sounds important to know.

It is. If your pregnancy is ending naturally you will not need an abortion. That is important information to know before you schedule a procedure.

If you think you are miscarrying you should contact your doctor or OB/GYN.

An ultrasound gives you valuable information that you need to know to make your decision.
