What should I know before an abortion?
When it comes to an unexpected pregnancy, the only way to make the best decision is to be informed about each of your options. That includes understanding the medical abortion procedures and potential risks. Prior to obtaining an abortion, there are a few questions you should be able to answer about your pregnancy:
1. How far along am I?
Abortion costs will vary, and one of the factors that determines abortion cost is how far along you are. It also depends on where the abortion is performed and which type of abortion procedure you’re looking at. Make an appointment for a free ultrasound today to determine fetal development and the options that are available to you.
2. Is my pregnancy normal?
It’s important to determine if your pregnancy is normal, or if you are at risk for a natural miscarriage or tubal pregnancy. Most miscarriages occur within the first trimester, and if you have a tubal pregnancy, you will require immediate medical attention. We can determine each of these things with a free Limited OB Ultrasound at our clinic.
3. Do I have an STD?
Having an untreated Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) at the time of having an abortion can seriously impact your future health. It puts you at high risk for contracting Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) which can lead to future reproductive health problems including infertility, serious infection, and other long-term complications. We can provide referrals for free or low-cost STD testing and treatment. These referrals can help you find the right testing and treatment for your conditions and ensure you and your pregnancy are healthy regardless of your decision.
