It can be difficult to know if you're pregnant because many pregnancy symptoms can be related to other issues or circumstances. The best way to know if you are really pregnant or not is to have a high-quality pregnancy test.
Choices Pregnancy & Health offers laboratory quality pregnancy tests at no cost to you. Contact us today to schedule your appointment.
Will my information be confidential?
Yes. Choices has a very strict confidentiality policy, and we value your privacy. We will not tell anyone you visited us, unless you give us permission to do so. Our staff and volunteers work hard to protect your privacy and confidentiality. Choices will keep all information confidential except as required by Illinois law.
Do I need an appointment?
We recommend having an appointment, but we will accommodate walk-ins when possible. In order to minimize your wait, please contact us to schedule an appointment.
How long does an appointment take?
Typically, an hour. Many appointments are shorter than this, but we want to be sure that we have plenty of time to give you the information you want, address any questions you may have, perform the pregnancy test and get the results. If you have a shortened time frame just let our staff know when you make your appointment so that we can accommodate your situation.
Why do I need an ultrasound?
An ultrasound will confirm that there is a fetal heartbeat (a live pregnancy) located where it should be (inside of the uterus) and estimate the gestational age of the baby (how many weeks into the pregnancy you are).
Can I get emergency contraception?
(The "morning-after" pill)
No. We do not provide emergency contraception (Plan B or ella). We do have information on how it works, the possible side effects and a list of things you should know before you take it. If you would like information on emergency contraception, contact us to schedule an appointment.
I already have a baby. Can I get diapers, formula, or other supplies?
Yes. We have a program that will help you provide all the necessary things you need for your baby. This program is free, but there are a few guidelines. Contact us for more information.
