Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Could I be pregnant?

According to the Mayo Clinic, the most common early signs and symptoms of pregnancy might include:

If you notice any of these symptoms, you might be pregnant. While missing a period or other symptom may indicate pregnancy, it is not a guarantee. Even at-home pregnancy tests can show a positive result even though you are NOT pregnant. At the Rockville Women’s Center, we offer medical-grade pregnancy testing to accurately determine if you are pregnant. If the test is positive, we can help determine the gestational age and viability of the pregnancy with a limited ultrasound. Our ultrasound provides you with important information on the development of the pregnancy and gives vital details needed to determine all of the options available to you. If you think you may be pregnant, please contact us and we can help you.

Do you offer free pregnancy testing?

Yes, like all of our services, our pregnancy testing is free. We offer medical-grade pregnancy testing which is 99 percent accurate, and is capable of detecting your pregnancy early after a missed period.

How much do you charge for a visit?

All of the services at the Rockville Women’s Center are confidential and provided at absolutely no cost to you. We are here for you.

What can I expect at my initial visit?

At your initial visit, you will meet with an Advocate who will take important information to get to know you and help us better serve you. Next, you will meet with our medical staff who will ask you questions about your medical history with a focus on your sexual and reproductive health. The medical staff will also explain the type of tests that we will perform during your visit and answer any questions that you may have. You will provide us with a urine sample which will be used to perform a pregnancy test and an STD test (Chlamydia and Gonorrhea only). If the pregnancy test we perform is positive, you will be offered an ultrasound to confirm the pregnancy and determine how far along you are. After confirmation of the pregnancy, the medical staff will discuss your options, potential risks, and side effects. If additional care is needed, we will provide you with a customized list of medical and/or community support referrals. We will schedule an additional appointment with you within one week to go over test results.

Can I bring someone with me to my appointment?

Due to COVID-19, we are limiting the number of individuals within the center.  We understand how important it is to have support during this uncertain time, however, to ensure your health and safety we ask that no one comes into the center with you at the time of your appointment.

Do you offer STD testing?

Yes, the Rockville Women’s Center provides free limited STD/STI testing as a part of its options consultation. The best way to prevent an STD/STI is regular testing and early detection. Early detection lowers the risk of developing health consequences like Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) and other reproductive health problems.

Is it possible to be pregnant and have an STD?

Yes, it is possible to be pregnant and have an STD. In fact, it is dangerous and can be harmful to your body if you have an STD while pregnant, or when pursuing an abortive procedure. If you think you may be pregnant, it is important that you get tested for an active STD/STI. Call to schedule an appointment to receive free limited STI/STD testing.

Will anyone or my insurance company find out about my appointment?

We value your privacy and your appointment will be completely confidential. No insurance information is required to receive our services, because all services at the Rockville Women’s Center are provided at no cost to you.

When do I need to have an ultrasound?

After you have a positive pregnancy test result, the next step is to have an ultrasound. A limited ultrasound will confirm your pregnancy and it will date the pregnancy in regards to gestational age. This crucial information serves as a guide to help you as you consider your pregnancy options.

I had a friend refer me to this clinic back in 2017 when I first found out I was pregnant, I was a first time mom and didn’t know what to expect. My experience at RWC was just amazing til this day. They were great and so caring, even my husband went with me and he was pleased with the experience. Now in 2020, when I least expected with all the madness going on in the world, they followed up with me after some time and asked how my son and I were, and I could not thank them enough for everything they have done for me. The most kind hearted and caring I have ever experienced in my life. God bless the whole team and continue making a difference in not only women’s life but the whole family/partner.

I would definitely recommend RWC if you are feeling confused about what to do with an unplanned pregnancy and specially if you don't want anyone to know until you have made your decision. RWC HELPED me so much, the staff was caring and they never judged me in any way, they gave me all my options never pushed me in anyway to make a decision. Instead they made sure to give me all the information I needed to make the right decision for me and my baby. Amy was the best I remember she offered if i wanted to have a sonogram (By the way all the services they provide are FREE of charge to moms.... God bless them) . I of Couse said yes and it was that moment during the sonogram that i knew i had came to the right place for support. The staff from the center are all very friendly and follow up with you during the pregnancy to see how you are doing . My lil one is now 23 months and i cant imagine my life without him. I thank God for guiding me to the right place I know what it feels like to be confused, depressed even mad at yourself in a way for not knowing what to do. RWC is the place to go for support. Thank you so much RWC for being part of my Family.Love you guys!

Sometimes you need a friend outside of your normal circle and that, I found in the staffs here. I’ll never forget the day I heard my daughters heartbeat for the first time here at RWC. Fear almost cheated me out of what is now the best thing that has ever happened to me. Thank you to all the staff at RWC for helping me rise above that fear. Today my daughter is 6 months old and the life I thought would end, really just began.

I would highly recommend this health center to any woman who is in need of information, has questions, or wants to be treated with the absolute best care without being judged. My experience here was absolutely phenomenal. My nurse Amy and advocate Cassy’s number one concern was my well being and made sure all my questions were answered. This is without a doubt the best care I could have received and I’m so thankful I found this place!

13 months ago I didn't think I could get pregnant, when I went to RWC I was in an awkward situation and I needed help. Immediately the ladies treated me with love and respect. There were hard questions and decisions to be made but they held my hand, literally and figuratively. I got free ultrasounds, lots of information on abortion, adoption, and pregnancy. They helped my find an OB and they kept in contact with me the following months. Now, my daughter is 4 months old and we have visited twice since she was born because the ladies have become part of our family. When I couldn't turn to anyone else they were there for me. RWC made my first trimester so much easier and I am so grateful. Before the office closed today I donated some newborn clothes, unopened diapers, and formula. As they do with anyone in need, they asked if there was anything we needed and gave us diapers in her size and one size up.If you are pregnant and you need confirmation, information about your options, or support, they will be there for you. They offer free ultrasounds and can give you an official pregnancy confirmation but they are not a medical office. I highly reccomend making an appointment on their website and visit. They will help you to the best of their ability and be there for you every step of the way.I appreciate them so much for everything they did for me.

This place is awesome. I don’t know why there are bad reviews, maybe they were confused about which clinic they went to? Everyone was nothing but fantastic. They were super supportive and gave me all of my options without making me feel like I was being judged. They would call to check on me and I could tell they really cared. I highly recommend this clinic if you want a team that really cares about you. I went in very nervous and came out feeling very relieved. I even got a painted rock with the word Hope on it. That was a nice surprise.

I came here feeling desperate and feeling uncomfortable about my pregnancy due to my relation ship with my boyfriend. I was looking for an advise. I was thinking to have and abortion and the lady’s at the center gave me options like having my baby, abort or give in adoption.After have my sonogram for free ( NO CHARGE ) and hear my baby heart I decide to keep my baby. I am already 35 and having an abortion can cause some side effects and one of those is not able to get pregnant again so I took the best decision ever for me and my baby and I will have my little treasure.Thank you so much to the lady’s at these place they made me feel very comfortable and I didn’t felt any pressure at all. They also gave me a gift it was a little stone paint in blue with the word brave :).I recomend these place to everybody who is concern about having an abortion because they can help you to see the whole panorama.
