Frequently Asked Questions

How accurate are urine tests?

Over the counter tests vary: the test used at AWPC is 99% accurate 7-10 days after conception.

If a woman has sex only once and near her period, can she become pregnant?

Yes.  Though women with regular cycles have times they are more and less likely to conceive, if a woman is having sex there is a possibility of becoming pregnant any time during the month.

Are there more than one type of abortion?

Yes.  Depending on your stage of pregnancy there may be as many as three different procedures available.  Each type has its own risks involved.  It is very important for a woman to understand the differences so she can make a choice she is comfortable with.

Are pregnancy decisions only a women’s issue?

No.  Pregnancy and the decisions concerning the outcome of a pregnancy can have significant emotional and practical impacts on the sexual partner, parents and other close relationships.  Whether the outcome is parenting, adoption or abortion, each option has the possibility for impact on involved parties.

Is A Women's Pregnancy Center only for women?

No.  A Women's Pregnancy Center offers pregnancy information and counseling to men and family members as well, whether or not the involved pregnant woman is a client.

Will anyone know I visited AWPC?

No.  A Women's Pregnancy Center has a strict confidentiality policy.  We will not release information about you, your pregnancy or your affiliation with us without your permission or unless ordered to do so by court subpoena.

What should I do if I suspect I am pregnant?

We suggest women stop all smoking, drinking and illegal drug use if there is any suspicion of pregnancy.  If it has been more than a week since you believe you may have become pregnant, schedule a pregnancy test.

Do you accept walk-in appointments?

We take walk-ins for pregnancy tests - no appointment necessary. For our existing clients, if you want an ultrasound or a Belly Boutique visit you must schedule an appointment. Additionally, STD test clients are seen only by appointment.
