Frequently Asked Questions


Q: How are STDs/STIs spread?

A: STD’s are spread through skin to skin contact, vaginal, anal and oral sex. Skin to skin contact does not mean walking up to someone and touching them, it means coming in contact with infected areas. HPV (Human Papillomavirus) and Herpes are spread through skin to skin contact, which means it doesn’t even take having sexual intercourse! Other STDs like Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis, HIV, Hepatitis B are spread through a bodily fluid like blood, urine, semen, and vaginal fluid which are exchanged during oral, vaginal and anal sex.


Q: How many STD’s are there?

A: There are more than 20 different kinds of STDs, however, several of them have many different strains. These are some of the most common:

Q: Is it true that you can get pregnant the first time you have sex?

A: YES! You can get pregnant the first time you have sex. There are only a few days a month you are actually fertile, meaning the time when you can become pregnant. If you have intercourse slightly before or during those days, the chance of pregnancy is greater. We educate on these facts and welcome the opportunity for any questions about your reproductive wellness, whether you are sexually active or considering becoming sexually active.


Q: When is the best time to take a pregnancy test?

A: A test can be read one week after your missed period.* You could have a false negative result within the first 31 days after your missed period because the hCG (pregnancy hormone) may not be at a high enough level to show up on a urine pregnancy test. Contact us for a FREE pregnancy test.  



Q: What if someone is forcing me to have an abortion?

A: It is illegal for anyone to force you to have an abortion. If you feel you're in that situation, we can help to share your options with you. We will be there for you and all appointments at Clarity are always confidential.


Q: How could anyone give up a baby?

A: Adoption has changed a lot. It doesn't mean you have to "give up a baby". Instead, it is an opportunity for a child to grow up in a loving home if a birth parent does not think they, themselves, can provide for their child the way they would like. The birth parents can have as much or as little involvement with the child after placement in the adoptive home. Adoption means giving a child a family and many times, it's giving a couple a chance to have a child.
