Q&A

When should I do a pregnancy test?

It is best to wait until you have missed a period.  This is to ensure that you have accurate results.  Testing too soon may result in a false negative test.

Do I need an appointment?

Having an appointment will guarantee that we can allow time to minimize your wait time and be able to provide you with all the information you need. We appreciate you calling us to cancel or change your appointment if necessary to free that time for someone else who may need our services.

Is there a cost?

All of our services are FREE.

What do I need to bring to my appointment?

Please bring a photo ID with you.  STD testing will not be provided without a photo ID.

How soon will I get test results?

Pregnancy test results will be given during your initial appointment.  STD results are normally received within 3-5 business days.

Can I get birth control or Emergency Contraception?

Vida does not prescribe or dispense birth control or Emergency Contraception, but can offer information on different methods, effectiveness, side effects, and risks.  Get the facts to make the best choice for you.

Will my visit be confidential?

At Vida, we do our best to protect your privacy and have a strict confidentiality policy. However, in some instances, we may need to disclose your information as required by law.
