Things You Should Know Before You Have An Abortion

1. You want to make sure you are pregnant…

Before undergoing a medical or surgical abortion, it’s important to be certain you are pregnant. Our pregnancy tests are hospital quality, as opposed to home tests, which are not always accurate. During your consultation a registered nurse can answer any questions you have regarding the procedure. If your pregnancy test result is positive, we can provide a complimentary sonogram, generally on the same day of your appointment.

2. You want to know how far along you are and if you have a progressing pregnancy…

Since as many as 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage, it is important to determine how far your pregnancy has progressed. An ultrasound is the most reliable way to determine that the fetus has a heartbeat and is located in the uterus. We can do that for you.

3. You want to evaluate all the pros and cons of your decision…

A trained, compassionate advocate can provide you with a confidential consultation utilizing a medically recognized decision-making tool to help you. A member of our health care staff can answer any questions you have regarding the type or nature of the abortion procedures.

4. You want to know if you have a sexual disease…

It is important to determine if you have a sexually transmitted infection (STI).  If you choose an abortion with an untreated STI, you will be at high risk for infection and complications. We provide complimentary STI testing with an on-site medical professional.
