Your Possible Pregnancy and Pregnancy Questions
Your situation is unique, but you’re not alone, and there are answers. In the State of California, a forced abortion is illegal. We can help you understand your legal rights, so you can decide what’s right for you.
We can help you work through all the issues you may be thinking about – your school studies, your parents, the father, your friends, and of course your future. We are here to provide a compassionate, non-judgmental place for you to talk about everything and decide on next steps.
You may be wondering many things like:
- Am I pregnant?
- How do I know if I’m pregnant?
- I don’t have health insurance. How can I get medical care?
- How will I finish school?
- What will my parents say?
- Should I tell the father? How do I tell him?
- What if I’m not sure about my pregnancy decision?
- What will my classmates/professors/teachers think?
- What do other pregnant women do?
- What about my future?
- Will I lose my scholarship?

- Can I get parenting education?
First Step – Pregnancy Test
The first step is to take a deep breath, and then confirm if you are pregnant or not. It is important to not get ahead of yourself and worry about being pregnant before you are sure.
A missed period is the most common indication of pregnancy, but it doesn’t necessarily mean you are pregnant. So, it is important to get an accurate pregnancy test – but not all pregnancy tests are accurate. Obria provides a no cost (Free) / low-cost lab grade pregnancy test, and if your pregnancy test is positive, you may qualify for an ultrasound. You will have the results during your appointment.
We also provide pregnancy verification which is an official document that is proof of pregnancy for insurance companies and community agencies, in case you need or want this documentation.
Our compassionate and caring medical and support staff are highly trained and dedicated to helping you.
