Think you’re pregnant? Brenham Pregnancy Center offers laboratory quality urine pregnancy tests that are administered by a licensed medical professional. The tests detect the presence of hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) hormone which circulates in a pregnant woman’s body shortly after fertilization.
A positive pregnancy test (including those taken at home) suggests a high probability that you are pregnant. However, the result should be confirmed. You may be eligible for an ultrasound to confirm and diagnose your pregnancy.
At your appointment, you will be provided a lab-quality pregnancy test first. If positive, you will be offered an ultrasound. A free ultrasound can confirm a viable pregnancy and estimate how far along in pregnancy you are.
20-25% of pregnancies end in early miscarriage. That is why it’s important to confirm if your pregnancy is viable.
Do I need an ultrasound before an abortion?
An abortion clinic may or may not offer an ultrasound before an abortion, though sometimes they do. An ultrasound can confirm a viable pregnancy and estimate how far along in pregnancy you are. If you are considering abortion, an ultrasound will provide important information that will tell you more about your options. Abortion costs vary depending on how far along you are and the abortion procedure that you receive.

Signs & Symptoms of Pregnancy
The signs and symptoms of pregnancy vary from woman to woman and even from pregnancy to pregnancy. Some women have no noticeable signs at all. The timing of the onset of signs and symptoms also varies. Early indications may include but are not limited to:
- Late or Missed Period
- Nausea and/or Vomiting
- Frequent Urination
- Spotting or Cramping
- Unexplained Fatigue
- Feeling lightheaded or dizzy
- Food Cravings or Aversions
- Increased Sense of Smell
- Darkening of Nipples
- Sore, Swollen, or Itchy Breasts
Having one or all of these symptoms may be an indicator of a pregnancy, but does not necessarily mean you are pregnant. Women do occasionally experience an inaccurate pregnancy test or the result may be unclear. If you are experiencing any signs or symptoms of pregnancy, schedule medical quality pregnancy testing – at no cost to you.
