Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need to have a missed period to get a pregnancy test?

We ask that you to be 28-31 days from your last period before you come in for a pregnancy test. This is to insure that you have an accurate pregnancy test result. Typically it takes about the moment of time of a missed period for this hormone to show up. For more information about pregnancy options including abortion, adoption, and parenting click here.

Will my visit be confidential?

Absolutely. The Women’s Life Care Center has a very strict confidentiality policy. We will not tell anyone about your visit unless you give us permission to do so. When you enter our center, you can be assured that we will do all we can to ensure your privacy and confidentiality. If you are concerned about confidentiality (because you might know someone who works here), you can email one of our center directors personally by clicking here. She will work with you to set up a time that you feel is safe for you to come in. We will hold in confidence all the information that you provide except in the following instances: if you are homicidal, suicidal, under age and being abused, or abusing someone else. In cases such as these, we are required by state law to report such instances.
