If you are considering abortion as an option, we are here to help you make an informed decision. Schedule an appointment today.
If you are pregnant and considering abortion, we’re here to help you make an informed decision. There are necessary steps you should take before making an abortion decision:
1. Get pregnancy confirmation
Since up to 1 in 4 pregnancies will end in a natural miscarriage, it is important for you to determine and confirm that the fetus is still in the uterus and has a heartbeat. An ultrasound is the most accurate way to determine age and viability of a pregnancy. Free and confidential ultrasounds are available at all of our locations.
2. Get tested for STD/STIs.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), if a woman has an untreated STI at the time of her abortion, it can increase her likelihood of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). If left untreated, PID can cause lifelong medical complications. STIs should be treated before any pregnancy decision is made. Our medical professionals can provide you with free, limited STI testing and treatment.
3. consider all of the possible risks of abortion
An abortion is an irreversible medical procedure. We can explain the different types of abortion procedures, provide you with medically-accurate and factual resources and give you an opportunity to ask questions in a safe and confidential environment.
