Pregnancy Q+A

Frequently asked questions from our clients

what does an appointment cost?

Most of our services are offered at no cost to you, including pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, options consultations and educational programs for first-time parents.

What are some of the most common pregnancy symptoms?

The most common symptom of pregnancy is a missed period. However, if you have irregular periods, this symptom may be misleading.

Other common pregnancy symptoms include:

Tender/swollen breasts


Appetite change



Mood swings


Frequent urination

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, make an appointment today.

When is the best time to take a home pregnancy test?

Generally, it is best to schedule an appointment when you are late for your period. Our urine pregnancy test analyzes the hCG (human chorionic gonadatropin) that is secreted shortly after implementation of the embryo.

Will my visit be confidential?

Absolutely. Aspire adheres to a strict confidentiality policy. We will hold in confidence all the information you share unless the law requires otherwise.

May I bring my partner or a support person with me?

Yes, we encourage you to bring your partner with you, if possible. If he is unavailable, then feel free to bring a friend, parent or family member who are supportive of you and your wishes. 

Note: If someone insists on coming with you but you do not want them in the consultation room with you, please let a staff member or patient advocate know on your appointment form or upon arrival.

Do I need an appointment?

We recommend making an appointment online to be sure you are seen at your convenience.  Walk-ins are welcome. If an appointment is available, we will do our best to see you that day. 

What do I need to bring to my appointment?

Most of our services are free of charge. STI testing and treatment is offered for a small fee. However, you will need to bring a photo ID with you. A student ID is also acceptable if you do not have a driver’s license.
