If you are healthy and are in URGENT need of our help, Life Connections will continue to be available to our clients throughout this current pandemic, but with restricted hours and Covid-19 precautions.

If another client is in the office, we will ask you to wait in your car until the office is cleared. We are not accepting donations of clothing or toys at this time. But we are very much in need of monetary donations, as well as unopened and not expired formula, baby food, diapers and wipes. Please be patient with us as we try to remain open under difficult circumstances so that we may be able to help as many people as possible.

THANK YOU and please stay safe for yourselves and your family!

 

Free Pregnancy Tests

Not all pregnancy tests are created equal. And not all people use proper CLIA-approved methods in administering the test.

If you think you might be pregnant, you are welcome to come in for a pregnancy test any time that we are open.

If you can, we’d love to have you call to make an appointment so that we can try to make sure we have someone to give you more personalized attention. It can get very busy in the office with all of our walk-in clients, so if you would prefer more anonymity or help, please work with us to find a private time to do this with you.

How accurate is Life Connections’ pregnancy test?

Our tests are laboratory-rated. They can detect the hCG pregnancy hormone as early as 7 days after conception or 21 to 24 days after the first day of your last period. The test is very accurate!

Can I test again if my test is negative and my period doesn't start?

Yes, you may be rescheduled for another test. The hCG hormone doubles every 2.2 days during the first three months of pregnancy, so another test about 7 days later will have even more accuracy.

Should I see a doctor if I have a second negative test and have not started my period?

If you have concerns about missed periods and your pregnancy test continues to be negative, you should see your health care provider for assessment. If you need resources for health care, Life Connections can provide you with referrals.

At-Home Pregnancy Tests can be highly accurate, but their accuracy depends on many things:

The most important part of using any HPT is to follow the directions exactly as written. Most tests also have toll-free phone numbers to call in case of questions about use or results.

If a HPT says you are pregnant, don’t panic. You should confirm your results with a doctor, but if you want to talk to us first or re-test with us, please call or stop by.

Your doctor can use a more sensitive blood test along with a pelvic exam to tell for sure if you're pregnant.

Seeing your doctor early on in your pregnancy can help you and your baby stay healthy.
