Afraid You Might Be Pregnant?

If you realize that you missed your period, you probably experienced immediate emotions of fear and confusion. While a missed period is the most common sign of pregnancy, it doesn’t always guarantee you are pregnant.

It is best to come to Parkville Women’s Clinic to have a lab-quality pregnancy test done to confirm the viability of the pregnancy with a limited OB ultrasound.

In fact, 1 in 5 pregnancies end in natural miscarriages.

If your test results turn out to be positive, our client advocates are here to discuss your next steps and options for your pregnancy.

How Many Weeks?

Here at Parkville Women’s Clinic, our staff can talk with you about the dates of your cycle and help make a conclusion as to how long you have been pregnant. If you have free pregnancy testing at our clinic and the results are positive, you may be eligible for a limited OB ultrasound to verify the date of your pregnancy.
