You are not alone and you can count on us if you do not know who to turn to or what to do next. We, at Options for Women, are here to meet your needs.

We Are Here to Help You Be a Healthy Student

All of our services are free and confidential. This includes pregnancy testing, pregnancy confirmation through Limited Obstetrical Ultrasound, STI / STD testing, practical assistance, and emotional support.

STI TESTING

One of the many services which we offer is STI (Sexually Transmitted Infection) Testing for our clients. We recommend testing for those who have been sexually active (with one or more partners), your partner(s) have had a partner(s), if you have had sexual intercourse with one who had a Sexually Transmitted Infection, or notice any irregular changes in your body following sexual intercourse. 

At Options for Women, we test for two of the more commonly reported infections-Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. We encourage testing to help stop the spread and help treat you. Chlamydia and Gonorrhea left untreated can lead to long-term complications. These complications include infections spreading to other parts of the body causing further damage, reproductive issues, infertility, and more. 

If you feel you are at risk, show signs for a sexually transmitted infection, or would like to learn more, you may visit optionsforwomenrf.com/sti-and-std-testing/ to have your questions answered. Do not wonder or worry alone! A trained Client Advocate is here to help.

PREGNANCY TESTING

We also offer pregnancy testing for our clients. Our lab-quality pregnancy testing is urine-based. Following your results, clients may have “questions answered, receive information about health and pregnancy options, and be connected with support,” (Options for Women). A Limited Obstetrical Ultrasound is available to confirm a positive pregnancy test result where a professional, caring Ultrasound Technician will be happy to answer your questions. Clients also have the ability to talk with a Nurse to have any medical questions answered.
