The Test Was Positive – What Do I Do Next?
You took a home pregnancy test and the result was positive. What do you do next? Maybe it was a test from the dollar store and you don’t trust the results. Or maybe you paid $20 for the test and you’re just not sure you did it right. Maybe you have taken three, four or even more and just can’t get an accurate answer.
Don’t wait any longer and don’t suffer in the unknown. Contact the Pregnancy Resource Center and make an appointment for a pregnancy test. Your appointment usually lasts about 45 minutes, it’s free and we can give you an answer the same day.
There is no easy answer to the question of “what do I do next”, because every woman is different and every situation is different. Without a doubt, there are a few facts that remain the same.

We will talk with you about all of your options and provide honest, truthful answers to all of your questions.

We can provide helpful tools, reading material and information to assist in making the choice.
