Preguntas frecuentes

Todos los servicios del Centro HOPE son gratuitos.

The pregnancy tests offered by the HOPE Center meet Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment (CLIA) standards for medically-accurate urine tests with instant results. The tests are accurate as early as two weeks after conception, usually before a missed period. At our center, pregnancy tests are generally up to 99% accurate and: are done in a private setting results will be known during your appointment, and can usually be taken before you miss your period. A positive urine pregnancy test suggests a pregnancy, but should always be confirmed, for example with an ultrasound. We can help you get a free ultrasound.

Aproximadamente entre 45 y 60 minutos para que pueda hacer preguntas y comprender sus opciones.

No, puede venir al centro HOPE solo o con un amigo. Aunque sea menor de edad, tiene derecho a recibir ayuda confidencial, excepto en aquellos casos en los que se apliquen informes obligatorios, como el riesgo de suicidio. No proporcionaremos sus registros a ninguna persona sin su autorización por escrito.

The hormones in your body that result in a positive pregnancy test can’t be detected until two weeks after fertilization. You need to call the HOPE Center and we’ll make an appointment for 2 weeks.

No. But the earlier you call, the more time we have to assist you.

The HOPE Center wants to make sure we have a special time set aside to talk with you, so it’s usually best to have an appointment. However, if you are unable to make an appointment, you may walk in Monday – Friday between 9:00 – 5:00 pm.

It is rare but possible to get pregnant on the pill. You will need to take a lab-quality urine test, and if it is positive, you will want to confirm pregnancy with an ultrasound. The HOPE Center can help you get a free ultrasound.

There are options available for people who need care even if they don’t have insurance. The HOPE Center will provide you with a free pregnancy test and if necessary will help you get a free ultrasound to confirm the pregnancy. If you qualify, we can help you apply for free medical insurance, plus, we can help you with referrals for medical, legal and social aid.

The process of recovering from an abortion is different for everyone. The HOPE Center offers support for women who have terminated one or more pregnancies, whether it was a recent abortion or many years ago. You can receive help in a group setting or one-on-one with a trained peer counselor.

You may be wondering, “Why do I need help after my abortion experience?” Many women, and even men, have come to Pregnancy Help for support. They realize they can’t deal with all of the unexpected consequences on their own. We are here no matter what choices you’ve made.

If you’ve been sexually intimate orally, anally or vaginally, you may have put yourself at risk for an STD. It’s really that simple. Since there are many types of STDs, it is important that you be tested regularly. Hormonal birth control (pill, patch, or implant) or mechanical birth control (IUD or vaginal ring) do not prevent the transmission of STDs. The HOPE Center can give you more information on STDs and help you get tested.

Condoms can only reduce the chance of infection with STDs like Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. Herpes and HPV are found on the external genitalia, a place condoms don’t cover. The only guaranteed protection from these two STDs is refraining from any genital to genital or oral to genital contact. The HOPE Center can answer your questions about STDs.

The HOPE Center does not offer the morning-after pill, or Plan B.

Option Line is available 24/7 by calling 800-395-4357. You can visit their website optionline.org to search for a center in your area that can assist you.
