We want you to be empowered to make the best choice for your unplanned pregnancy. Here are some questions women and men often ask. If you don’t see your question here, please contact us.
When Should I Take a Pregnancy Test?
Pregnancy Options Miami offers free, medical-grade pregnancy testing for an unexpected pregnancy. Our tests can identify hCG (a hormone produced if you are pregnant) as early as 1 day after a missed period. However, waiting at least a week will allow for the most accurate results and reduce the chances of getting a false test result. Schedule your free pregnancy test.
What is the Abortion Pill?
The abortion pill (aka a medication abortion) is an early pregnancy termination procedure that can only be performed during the first nine weeks. Two different and very powerful drugs are taken. The first drug ends the pregnancy, and the second drug is taken at least 24-48 hours later to cause cramping and contractions that expel the pregnancy. Abortion is a serious medical decision. Contact us to discuss procedures, risks, and side effects.
What Are the Side Effects of Abortion?
Any abortion is a serious medical decision and should be considered very carefully. There are two main types of abortion, medication and surgical. Depending on which type of abortion you have, there are certain risks and side effects. Here are a few:
- Incomplete abortion (following a medical abortion)
- Prolonged, heavy bleeding
- Fever and chills
- Damage to the cervix (following a surgical abortion)
- Damage to the lining of the uterus (following a surgical abortion)
Contact us to discuss the different abortion procedures and learn more about the other risks and side effects.
What Do I Need Before I Can Have an Abortion?
The first thing you should do is get an ultrasound to determine exactly how far along you are. An ultrasound will give you the information you need about your pregnancy, like where it’s located and if it’s viable. These are important factors when you consider an abortion. Schedule your free ultrasound with us.
What Are the Early Signs of Pregnancy?
It’s not possible to verify a pregnancy by symptoms alone. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you should come to Pregnancy Options for free pregnancy testing.
- Late period
- Sore breasts
- Nausea & vomiting
- Food cravings or aversions
- Mood swings
