Think you might be pregnant?
If you are wondering whether or not you’re pregnant, your mind is probably racing with questions. It’s common to feel confused, scared or overwhelmed.
Common symptoms of pregnancy include a late or missed period, tender or swollen breasts, frequent urination, fatigue, and nausea. The first step to take to see if you might be pregnant is to take a pregnancy test. We can quickly connect you with a local pregnancy center that provides many services for free, including pregnancy tests and some limited ultrasounds. You can also call our hotline at 1-800-712-4357 to speak with someone about your pregnancy concerns.

Need to know about emergency contraception?
If you’ve recently had unprotected sex or the condom broke, you might be feeling anxious about the possibility of pregnancy. Maybe you’re considering emergency contraception such as the morning after pill but have questions about how these medications work or their safety.
Commonly sold as Plan B One-Step®, Next Choice®, or ella®, emergency contraception may reduce the chance of pregnancy. These medications are reported to work in one of several ways: stopping ovulation, blocking sperm from joining with an egg, or preventing a fertilized egg from implanting—some may consider this an early abortion. These do not prevent the spread of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs), and there are potential risks and side effects to be considered.
Considering an abortion?
Scared. Pressured. Trapped. If a baby is not in your plans right now, it’s possible you’re feeling at least one of these emotions—and abortion might seem like the best way out.
Your feelings are valid; this is a big decision. There are at least three options available to you. Each option will have immediate and long-term impacts on your life.
