How do I know if I’m pregnant?
Pregnancy symptoms differ for every woman, while some may experience zero symptoms. However, the most common initial sign of pregnancy is a missed period. There are other symptoms that should be considered to detect a possible pregnancy:
- Tender/swollen breasts
- Aversion to certain foods
- Mood swings
If you are experiencing one or more of these symptoms, you could be pregnant. However, the only way to know if you are pregnant with assurance is to complete a pregnancy test. Our center provides pregnancy tests at no-cost.
How much will my appointment cost?
Petoskey Pregnancy Care Clinic’s goal is to provide women with the care and resources that they deserve. That’s why all our services are no cost. If you only wish to schedule an appointment to receive consultation and direction, you will not need to provide any forms of payment. We are here to serve you.
Can I bring someone with me?
Our priority is to ensure that you feel comfortable and safe during your visit. We invite you to bring a friend, significant other, or family member to your appointment.
Can I be pregnant and have an STD?
You can be pregnant and have an STD simultaneously. In fact, having an untreated STD while pregnant can cause serious harm to you and your pregnancy. If you’ve had unprotected sex with a high-risk sexual partner, or if you have shared needles, it’s important that you get tested immediately.
Will my insurance company know about my appointment?
Because your appointment will be no cost to you, we do not require an insurance card or any form of payment when you come in for your appointment. This way, we are able to ensure that you get the resources and services you need in a confidential manner.
What if I don’t know my next steps?
The season you are walking through can be filled with uncertainty and confusion, but we want to walk with you through this time. Your best first step is to make an appointment with our center so that we can offer you pregnancy testing and/or insightful consultation. Our caring, knowledgeable staff can discuss your situation and options, providing you with the resources you need to make an informed decision.
