Could I Be Pregnant?
An unexpected pregnancy can leave you scared and overwhelmed. Try your best not to panic. If you recently had unprotected sex or recently missed your period, you may think you’re pregnant. Your first step to clarity is to take a pregnancy test and verify that you really are pregnant.
Although you may have taken a pregnancy test at home, you will want to follow up with a lab-quality test. New Hope Center’s tests are free and 99.9% accurate. Our staff can provide immediate results, which will be confidential and judgment-free.
Why Do I Need A Lab-Quality Pregnancy Test?
A pregnancy test detects the presence of HCG, a hormone released during pregnancy. Although home pregnancy tests have improved over the years, if the test is taken too early or administered incorrectly, the results can be inaccurate. It’s important for a nurse or trained mentor to administer the pregnancy test to decrease the chance of error.
During your appointment, you will be asked to give a urine sample. We will be with you when you see the results and can answer any questions you have. If the test is positive, we will inform you about your pregnancy choices.
If you are considering an abortion, lab-quality pregnancy test results are required in Kentucky before you can obtain an abortion.
How Does Pregnancy Testing Work?
Our lab-quality pregnancy test looks for the HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) hormone in urine. The test requires a urine sample, and you’ll receive the results during your appointment with us.
If your pregnancy test is positive, the next step will be to confirm that you have a viable pregnancy through ultrasound, which New Hope Center also provides at no cost to you.
What Is My Next Step?
After a positive pregnancy test, we’ll schedule you for an ultrasound at our center. Ultrasound will provide you with important information that will guide you through considering your choices and making a decision.
New Hope Center offers resources and services to all women facing an unexpected pregnancy. If you think you might be pregnant, make an appointment for a free pregnancy test. We are always here to help.

**Recognized as the earliest reasonable time to identify the baby's gender through a sonogram. This is dependent on the positioning of the baby and the view of the ultrasound.
