free and confidential help in a safe and understanding environment
We are here to help provide you with accurate medical information and important facts so you can make an informed decision. We are not an adoption agency, an abortion doctor, or an obstetrical medical practice. Because we do not profit from any choice you make, all of our services are free. There are many reasons to make an appointment at EPS:
1. Pregnancy test verification at no cost to you.
Pregnancy tests offered at EPS are all professional quality, high sensitivity urine tests with results in minutes. Pregnancy tests detect hCG in the urine, a hormone present during pregnancy. It is most accurate to test for pregnancy after a missed period. EPS nurses can provide you with a verification of positive pregnancy test at the time of your visit.
2. Find out how far along you are with no obligation of additional services.
Following a positive urine pregnancy test, it is beneficial to have an ultrasound. You may qualify for a free ultrasound at EPS to determine how far along you are, and also if this is a viable pregnancy. About 10-25 percent of known pregnancies end naturally in miscarriage and may require prompt medical attention.
3. Meet one-on-one in a private environment
EPS offers free, confidential pregnancy testing in a private setting. You will know the result of your pregnancy test during your visit.
4. STI screening
If you are pregnant and considering abortion, it is important to realize that abortion is invasive, whether it is a surgical or medical abortion. If you potentially have a positive STI, the infection can travel through your cervix during a surgical abortion. This can cause PID (Pelvic Inflammatory Disease). There is a lot to consider when it comes to your decisions regarding your pregnancy and health. Our nursing staff can help to answer your questions.
5. Other reasons we are your best next step:
We do not require parental consent.
We do not require insurance. No insurance paperwork will be sent to your home.
It is important to take the time to consider all your options and to know the facts about your pregnancy so you can make an informed decision.
I really felt respected and understood. The information was really what I needed. EPS helped me more than anybody would.
