Abortion is a serious pregnancy decision, and it will impact your future. To safeguard your health and offer you the insight you need, 3 things needed before an abortion are a pregnancy test, ultrasound, and more information about the risks of abortion and all your options.
1. Clarity of Mind
While it may seem simple, getting the clarity that you’re indeed pregnant is your first step to making a pregnancy decision.
Verify your home pregnancy test results with a free pregnancy test at our center. If your test is positive, we might be able to provide an ultrasound. You deserve to find peace of mind with a pregnancy test and follow up with a medical professional to talk about your unique health.
2. Determine If You’re Eligible
Some women encounter pregnancy complications while pregnant that require medical attention and disqualify them from an abortion option. An ultrasound is important to receive to alert you to any potential complications and to rule out things like ectopic pregnancy or miscarriage.
An ultrasound will also confirm how far along you are, offering three essential pieces of information: the viability (whether the pregnancy is healthy & progressing), how far along you are, and the location (whether it’s growing within the uterus).
The amount of time a woman has been pregnant determines the type of abortion that is appropriate for her situation. The FDA had approved medical abortion for up to 10 weeks of pregnancy.
3. Be Fully Informed
If you are considering other options like adoption or parenting, we can also inform you more about these options and resources at our center.
