If you’re experiencing pregnancy symptoms, you may be unsure where you can go for a pregnancy test. Perhaps you’re worried about taking one at home and having someone learn your news before you’re ready. Or maybe you need some emotional support as you wait for the test results.

All of these reasons are understandable, and luckily, you have options. Care Net Pregnancy Center of Cochise County is proud to provide free medical-grade pregnancy tests in a private setting. We offer you the results during your appointment, so you’ll learn your pregnancy status quickly and have the time to process the news.

Why Do I Need a Pregnancy Test?

A pregnancy test is one of the best ways to learn if you’re pregnant, and you often need a positive result before being offered an obstetric ultrasound. If you’re experiencing the following symptoms, you’ll want to take a test to know for sure:

  • Missed period
  • Tender, swollen breasts
  • Nausea with or without vomiting
  • Increased urination
  • Fatigue
  • Mood swings
  • Bloating
  • Light spotting
  • Cramping
  • Constipation
  • Food aversions
  • Nasal congestion

Since these symptoms can indicate a condition other than pregnancy, the only way to know for certain is through a pregnancy test. Sometimes, you may not have any symptoms other than a missed period. If you’ve had unprotected sex, however, the best course of action is to come in for a pregnancy test.

How Do Pregnancy Tests Work?

Both blood and urine-based pregnancy tests work by detecting the level of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in a woman’s body. This is a hormone produced by the placenta during pregnancy. Most home pregnancy tests are accurate and test for hCG effectively, but some women opt to test for pregnancy at a medical clinic or local pregnancy center if they want guidance from a medical professional.

Following a positive pregnancy result at Care Net Pregnancy Center of Cochise County, we’ll talk about your eligibility for a free abdominal ultrasound. We can also discuss your pregnancy options with you and connect you to parenting and adoption resources.
