Am I Really Pregnant?
While a positive home pregnancy test can confirm a pregnancy, be sure to follow up with a medical team like ours for pregnancy testing to verify your results. Common pregnancy symptoms include nausea, tender breasts, moodiness, frequent urination, and a missed period.
We offer free and confidential pregnancy testing and an ultrasound. We see both steps as essential for pregnancy confirmation.
Is An Ultrasound Necessary?
A pregnancy test is only your first step to clarity. A positive pregnancy test can’t tell you all there is to know about your pregnancy. Ultrasounds confirm three crucial details of your pregnancy, including:
- Viability (If your pregnancy is healthy and growing)
- The location of your pregnancy (whether it’s growing within the uterus or not)
- How far along you are (gestational age)
Ultrasounds are essential regardless of your choices, even if you are leaning towards abortion. An ultrasound is necessary to date your pregnancy before an abortion, as the FDA only recommends medical abortions for pregnancy through 70 days gestation (70 days or less since the first day of a woman’s last menstrual period).
Are Appointments Free?
Yes, all of our services and support are free and confidential. We are happy to join you in this challenging time and offer peace of mind and support.
What Are the Risks of Abortion?
There are two types of abortion, medical and surgical abortion, which come with unique risks. Common risks of medical abortion include infection, incomplete abortion, heavy, prolonged bleeding, and more.
Common risks that come with both types of surgical abortion procedures include:
- Perforation of the uterus (when a surgical instrument pokes a hole in the uterus)
- Damage to the cervix
- Scar tissue on the uterine wall
- Excessive bleeding
Can I Bring Someone With Me?
