Frequently Asked Questions
When should I get an ultrasound?
You need an ultrasound following a positive pregnancy test result. An ultrasound is necessary to confirm your pregnancy. At Heartbeat Hope Medical, we provide ultrasounds free of charge. An ultrasound reveals three important details of your pregnancy, including:
- Whether your pregnancy is viable (growing and has a detectable heartbeat)
- How far along you are (the gestational age)
- The location of your pregnancy (to determine if you have a dangerous ectopic pregnancy)

How do I know if I am pregnant?
A late period is usually the first sign of early pregnancy, but there could be a change in your menstrual cycle for other reasons too. Do you have any of these other pregnancy symptoms? Every pregnancy is unique just like every woman. Your best first step is to schedule an appointment at Heartbeat Hope Medical for free and confidential clinical pregnancy testing.
What are the signs of an std?
If you’ve had vaginal, oral, or anal sex, you have a potential risk for an STD/STI. Many STIs/STDs have little to no immediate symptoms but if left untreated, can develop into life-changing diseases. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends you get tested at least once a year and more often if you have new or multiple partners. If you have questions regarding your level of risk, please call to talk with one of our qualified medical staff.
