Pregnancy Testing | Positive Home Pregnancy Test? 3 critical things you need to know. 

1. POSITIVE might not mean PREGNANT. Pregnancy Test | Women looking at pregnancy test.
 

You may be wondering, "Can I  be pregnant?" Have you taken a positive home pregnancy test?  If you answered yes, you still need a doctor to confirm the pregnancy is viable (or that the fetus has a beating heart).

Just because a pregnancy test is positive, doesn’t mean the pregnancy is viable. About 1 out of every 4 pregnancies ends in miscarriage.1

Receive a complimentary ultrasound at ComfortCare to find out how far along your pregnancy is and if it’s viable. Medical information is power. We have offices in Lexington, Staunton, and Waynesboro.

   
2. STI means STOP.
 

Have you been tested for an STI? Even if you’ve only had one partner, there is a risk that you could carry a Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI).

STI’s affect any pregnancy decision. If a woman has untreated STI’s at the time of her abortion, it can increase her likelihood of PID (Pelvic Inflammatory Disease).

 

If left untreated, PID can escalate into lifelong medical complications.2 If a woman decides to carry to term, untreated STI’s can be transferred to the baby during delivery.2

All women should be tested for STI’s regardless of their pregnancy decision. At ComfortCare, limited STI testing is conducted, without charge, and referrals for comprehensive testing can be made. Education is freedom.

     
3. There are OPTIONS.  
 

When you’re staring at a positive pregnancy test, it can seem like all options are gone. It can feel overwhelming.

But you are strong. With the right medical information and non-judgmental support, you can make the best decision for you. ComfortCare is staffed with pregnancy options specialists, available to discuss abortion, adoption and parenting. The most cutting-edge information is given in a supportive, objective setting.

Nurses and patient advocates are available to listen to your situation, your hesitations and your concerns. Support brings independence.
