According to the Mayo Clinic, the most common early signs and symptoms of pregnancy might include: missed period; tender/swollen breasts, nausea with or without vomiting, increased urination, fatigue.
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 verify 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 help determine all of the options available to you. If you think you may be pregnant, please contact us and we can help you.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
