I'm new to this site and still trying to find my way around. I hope this is a good place to post my questions and concerns.
First, some background, I'm extremely poor, a college student (as is my boyfriend), and most days I have trouble affording food. I can't really afford to buy my own pregnancy test at this time and the local Planned Parenthood charges about $20 for their's (and that's with taking my income into consideration). My boyfriend and I use condoms and spermicide, every time, but I am still a week late. I signed up for a state program for free birth control but was told that it would take two weeks to a full month to be approved and I can't afford it without the program. So I'm still waiting for approval to the program.
My friend told me that there are places that give Free pregnancy tests but that I shouldn't go there unless I was certain that if pregnant, I would keep the pregnancy. At this point, I probably would not keep a pregnancy but I still really need a test and it would be best if it was free.
So, is it okay to go to the free place even if I probably wouldn't keep a pregnancy?
Would they treat me differently or badly?
What type of information can I expect from them?
Would you recommend it if you've been to one?
And would it be best to just pretend that I would keep the pregnancy to get the test and then make a decision later?
If you've been to one of these places, I am anxious to hear your story and whether you would send your best friend there or not.
