Every woman needs to have the answers to three basic questions when considering her pregnancy options:
- Am I really pregnant? “31% of pregnancies end on their own. Since a positive pregnancy test can’t
medically confirm that you are pregnant, we need to do an ultrasound to confirm that you have a viable (living and growing) pregnancy.
- If I am pregnant, how far along am I? “Knowing exactly how far along you are determines what type of abortion procedure you could get and how much it will cost. This is done using an ultrasound exam.
- Is it important to know if I have a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD)? Yes, a woman with a common STD, such as chlamydia, if left untreated prior to an abortion, puts her future reproductive health at risk due to an increase risk of infection complications.
Your three options regarding your pregnancy are abortion, parenting or adoption. We will discuss each of these options with you in detail during your appointment. We do not perform or refer for abortions.
