Think you’re pregnant? Care Net Pregnancy Center of Frederick provides lab-quality pregnancy testing. These tests check for the pregnancy hormone that is produced when the embryo attaches to the wall of the uterus. The best time to take a test is just after your missed period. Testing sooner can lead to conflicting results.
A positive pregnancy test means that the pregnancy hormone is circulating in your body, but it doesn’t tell you if you are carrying a living pregnancy inside the uterus. A simple way to confirm your pregnancy is by getting an ultrasound exam. Schedule a free and confidential appointment today.

PREGNANCY TEST CONFIRMATION
If your test is positive, our staff will determine next steps, such as an ultrasound exam, and the best time to schedule that procedure. An ultrasound can confirm a viable pregnancy and can give an estimate of pregnancy dating. This is valuable information if you’re considering abortion or your pregnancy options. All services are free and confidential.
