Understanding Abortion

An unplanned pregnancy can be overwhelming. You may feel your only solution is abortion, and we understand. Some of us have been there. You are fearful of telling family and friends. Perhaps the father is insisting you have an abortion. It feels like you have no other choice.

First of all, we want you to know you are not alone. You can talk with us. You have questions, and you deserve answers. We want to give you as much information as possible about the abortion process and what to expect. Our medical professionals will provide you with accurate information without judgment or pressure.

Get Pregnancy Confirmation

Pregnancy testing at Mosaic Health is the first step in determining if you are pregnant. Since up to 1 in 4 pregnancies will end in a natural miscarriage, you need to identify and confirm that the fetus is still in the uterus and has a heartbeat. An ultrasound is one of the most accurate ways to determine gestational age (how far along you are) and its viability.

Free and confidential limited ultrasounds are available at our clinic locations in Granite City and Fairview Heights, Illinois. Please get in touch with our offices by phone or online to set up an initial appointment with our staff.

Get Tested For an STD/STI

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 developing pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). If left untreated, PID can cause lifelong medical complications. STIs and STDs should be treated before any pregnancy decision is made. Our medical professionals can provide free, limited STI testing and treatment.

The Downside of Abortion

Abortion is an irreversible medical procedure. Our medical professionals will discuss abortion information and the different types of abortion procedures. They will also provide you with medically accurate and factual resources and clearly explain all the possible physical risks of abortion.

Many women mention feelings of guilt, regret, or loss after choosing abortion. At Mosaic Health, you will have an opportunity to ask questions in a safe and confidential environment.
