Pregnancy Tests

Pregnancy tests are available in at least one location in every county in Georgia, regardless of county residency. Urine pregnancy tests are completed by health department staff and results are provided within a few minutes. Women who are provided pregnancy tests in a health department location have the added benefit of receiving assistance with linkage to other services based including locating prenatal care providers, pregnancy Medicaid enrollment, and WIC when test results are positive or family planning services if desired when test results are negative. Please contact your local health department to learn more about availability, including hours and costs.
