Pregnancy Tests

Taking a pregnancy test is the first step to determining if you are pregnant.

Avail provides free, self-administered pregnancy tests (hCG urine test), which can detect pregnancy hormones ten days after conception and provide results within three to five minutes.

If you live in NYC or the surrounding area, think you might be pregnant, and don’t know what to do, make a same-day appointment at Avail to find out if you are pregnant. During your appointment, you will take a free pregnancy test and have the opportunity to meet with one of Avail’s client advocates to talk about your pregnancy options.

If you are pregnant, you will also have the opportunity to receive a free ultrasound exam by referral to a women’s medical clinic. An ultrasound exam can tell you how far along you are and if your pregnancy is viable. Free ultrasound exams are performed in a satellite medical office on-site at Avail, and results are available the same day.

What to expect

  • What should I do if my pregnancy test is positive?

    If your pregnancy test is positive, ask your client advocate if you are eligible for a free ultrasound exam. Avail works with a women’s medical clinic to offer free ultrasound exams by referral to qualifying clients.

    Your client advocate is also available to talk you through your thoughts and emotions as you begin the process of making a decision about your unexpected pregnancy. Avail’s client advocates are knowledgeable and caring, and they will help you (and your partner, if you choose to include him) obtain the decision-making information and support you need if you find yourself pregnant and don’t know what to do.

  • What should I do if my pregnancy test is negative?

    If your pregnancy test is negative, you will have the opportunity to talk to your client advocate about sex, pregnancy prevention, and healthy relationships.

Note: Avail NYC is a decision-making center, not a medical facility. Free pregnancy tests are self-administered, and free ultrasound exams are provided by referral to a women’s medical center that operates a medical suite onsite at Avail.
