Do I have to miss a period before I come in for a pregnancy test?

No. However, PRC suggests that you wait 10 days after having intercourse before you come in for a pregnancy test. This is to ensure that you have an accurate test result. The hormone hCG is detected for a positive result. Typically it takes 7-10 days for this hormone to be at a detectable level.

Will my visit be confidential?

Absolutely. Pregnancy Resource Clinic has a very strict confidentiality policy. We will not tell anyone about your visit unless you give us permission to do so. When you enter Pregnancy Resource Clinic, you can be assured that we will do all we can to ensure your privacy and confidentiality. Pregnancy Resource Clinic will hold in confidence all the information that you provide except in the following instances: if you are homicidal, suicidal, under age and being abused, or abusing someone else. In cases such as these, we are required by state law to report such instances.

Do I need an appointment?

In order to minimize your wait time, it is better to schedule an appointment. In order to be tested for STI’s, you must have an appointment. To set up an STI appointment, contact us.

What do I need to bring to my appointment?

Pregnancy Resource Clinic asks that you bring a photo I.D. with you to your appointment.

What can I expect during my appointment?

At Pregnancy Resource Clinic, we believe YOU matter, and our hope is to meet your needs as a whole person. This may include physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. All of our services are permission-based, and you may accept or decline anything offered to you.

When you arrive, you will:

  • Check in at the reception window with a photo ID (required) or passport
  • Fill out the necessary paperwork
  • Meet with a Client Advocate or Registered Nurse, dependent upon your particular situation. Clients who bring a friend or partner with them will initially meet with the Client Advocate or RN alone for confidentiality reasons, but will be given the opportunity for their friend/partner to join them at the appropriate time during the appointment.
  • For a pregnancy test appointment, you can expect to be guided through a self-administered urine pregnancy test. If positive, a nurse will complete a medical assessment questionnaire. You will have the opportunity to discuss your options with a trained Client Advocate and schedule an ultrasound to determine the health of your pregnancy (location, viability, and gestational age). 
  • For an STD test appointment, you will be offered testing for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, HIV, and Syphilis. Since many STDs are site-specific, you may be encouraged to provide various samples based on your sexual activity. A Registered Nurse or Certified Phlebotomy Technician will obtain a blood sample needed for some of the testing. Females seeking STD testing will also need to complete a pregnancy test.
  • At the closing of your appointment, your Client Advocate may offer to pray with you. You may accept or decline this offer. Visit our About Us page for more information.

Pregnancy Resource Clinic seeks to educate, encourage, and empower men and women to make informed life choices. 

  • We educate clients by providing information related to the service they are seeking, including but not limited to pregnancy options, community resources,  and sexual health.
  • We encourage clients by listening to their stories, offering answers as we are able, and reminding them of their value.
  • We empower clients to make healthy choices by offering support and resources, and our hope is that our clients know we care about them regardless of the choices they make.
