Here are some of our most frequently asked questions. If your question is not listed below, feel free to contact us to ask your question directly. We are here to help and answer any questions you may have.
- Are there fees or costs for any of your services?
All of our services are free and confidential.
- I think I’m pregnant, but I’m on the pill. What should I do?
It’s rare, but possible to get pregnant while on the pill. You will need to take a lab quality urine test to ensure your pregnancy. If it’s positive, an ultrasound will be best to confirm the viability of your pregnancy.
- Why should I come in to be tested if I’ve already taken an at-home pregnancy test?
When making these tough life decisions, it’s important to have factual and accurate information to go off of. When you take a pregnancy test at PLL, the test you receive is a lab-quality, high-sensitivity urine tests with instant results. These tests are generally up to 99% accurate and done in a clinical and private setting. We also may confirm pregnancy tests with an ultrasound to assess the viability of your pregnancy. Bottom line, we can provide you with accurate information about your current situation. From there we can provide you with your options and offer support. You don’t have to go through this situation alone.
- I am not 18. Does a parent have to come with me to my appointment?
No, you may come in alone or with a trusted friend or family member – whichever you are most comfortable with. Even though you are a minor, you have the right to confidential help. We can’t provide your records to any person without written authorization from you.
- I had unprotected sex last night. Can I come in for a pregnancy test?
No, but you can come in to discuss your options. The hormones in your body that result in a positive pregnancy test will not be detected until 9 to 11 days after fertilization. Please wait until after that period of time, and then we can set an appointment for a pregnancy test.
- Do I have to have insurance for a pregnancy test or ultrasound?
No, all of our services are free. If you are worried about medical care, there are options available for people who need care even if they don’t have insurance. PLL will provide you with a free pregnancy test and if the results are positive, we will work with you to connect with available local resources.
- Is everyone who comes to PLL guaranteed an ultrasound?
We offer limited ultrasounds during the first trimester of pregnancy. You will be asked specific questions to help determine your eligibility for the ultrasound service.
- Can I get the morning after pill at PLL?
We do not offer the morning after pill, or Plan B. But, we can certainly provide you with information on how this pill works and discuss your options.
- Can I get an abortion at PLL?
We do not refer or perform abortions. We can provide you with pregnancy options counseling.
