Are you facing the possibility of an unexpected pregnancy?
EPS offers free and confidential pregnancy testing in a private, confidential setting.
In times of uncertainty, it is nice to know you have someone you can confide in, and someone who will give you the answers you need to understand how to move forward. We offer free medical-grade urine pregnancy tests with results in minutes. Pregnancy tests detect hCG, a hormone present during pregnancy. It is most accurate to test for pregnancy after a missed period. Continue reading to learn more about our services or request an appointment now.
WHAT IF I KNOW I’M PREGNANT
EPS nurses provide consultations about your options and health so that you can make informed and educated choices related to your pregnancy. So even if you’ve already taken a pregnancy test at home, you can request a free appointment with us to access one-to-one support from nurses, professional counselors and life services team members in addition to pregnancy testing, ultrasound and STI screening and treatment and pregnancy education.
IF I TEST POSITIVE, WHAT’S NEXT?
Following a positive urine pregnancy test, it is beneficial to have an ultrasound. You may qualify for a free 1st trimester limited obstetric ultrasound scan at EPS to determine how far along you are, and also if you have a viable pregnancy. Why is this important? Because if you’re not thinking about parenting and currently deciding whether you should schedule an abortion, you may not have to pay for it if your pregnancy is not progressing.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) estimates that miscarriage/spontaneous abortion is the most common form of pregnancy loss. It is estimated that as many as 26 percent of all pregnancies end in miscarriage and up to 10 percent of clinically recognized pregnancies. If your pregnancy naturally ends in miscarriage, you may require medical attention.
WE DO NOT PROFIT FROM YOUR DECISION
We understand that an unexpected or under-supported pregnancy can be a challenging time. EPS is a place where you can take a deep breath and talk about what you want to do next. If you receive a positive pregnancy test, EPS will not put you under any obligation to schedule an ultrasound because we do not profit from your decision. Ultrasounds are free, as are all EPS services.
I have had an amazing experience with EPS. It’s hard to find a place to start. The staff goes above and beyond making it a comfortable, helpful, supportive, and welcoming environment for their clients. I’m so thankful for each and every person at EPS who has helped me. I don’t know where I would be without them.
