Consider the below for more privacy and personal attention:
- Initial Online
At Pregnancy Centers Listed on this Site
- Referral to a Doctor
If you suspect you may be pregnant, but do not want to use the public high school clinic or your local doctor, you can privately take a test in a number of ways – at no cost to you.
As a first step, you can take an online test. Some of the sites we reviewed try to sell other things. This is one of the friendlier and easy to use test sites:
But do not rely on it alone – also go to one of the pregnancy crises centers.
These centers will treat you confidentially, are all in CT, very reliable, and
they all give free pregnancy tests. Call for an appointment; some let you drop
in (as indicated on the list).
The better or more reputable centers, like Carolyn’s Place, will do the test for
you but also recommend you be seen by a doctor.
Reasons to See a Doctor
If you are not pregnant:
- A medical exam will disclose why you may be
feeling sick to your stomach or have skipped
If you are pregnant:
- A pregnancy can trigger dangerous medical
conditions which a doctor will check and find,
such as high blood pressure.
If you have an STD, it must be identified and
treated, no matter what decision you make about
your pregnancy EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT HAVING
SYMPTOMS FROM IT.. Many have STD's and do
not know it.
This is a good time to double check -- for your safety.
