Nurse Administered Pregnancy & STI Testing
We offer laboratory quality urine pregnancy tests that are administered by a licensed healthcare professional. A positive pregnancy test (including those taken at home) suggests a high probability that you are pregnant. However, the result should be confirmed by an ultrasound. We also offer STI testing for gonorrhea and chlamydia. When you come for your pregnancy test, a licensed healthcare professional will assess if STI testing is needed.
We have licensed nurses available to address your medical questions and concerns regarding pregnancy and sexual health.
Pregnancy Confirmation through Limited Obstetric Ultrasound
After a positive pregnancy test, you will be assessed for eligibility for an ultrasound to confirm and diagnose your pregnancy. In the state of VA, an ultrasound is required by law at least 24 hours prior to an abortion. AVA Care’s ultrasound services meets this requirement – at no cost to you.
AVA Care has trained staff that provides support and education in pregnancy decisions. In order to better serve you, your client advocate will talk with you about your situation and your concerns.
