There are a variety of abortion options available in our area. Before you decide if, when and where to have an abortion, your first step is a medical consultation and diagnosis. Heartbeats offers Free Pregnancy Tests and Ultrasound to help you navigate your pregnancy decisions.
Before deciding the outcome of your pregnancy, it is important to answer these three questions:
- Will my pregnancy end naturally?
A positive pregnancy test does not mean that your pregnancy will continue. Up to one in four pregnancies end naturally on their own, most often before 7 weeks.1 Be aware that some abortion clinics have been known to provide abortions without confirming viable pregnancy. Do not risk your health (or spend your money) to abort a pregnancy that may already be ending naturally.
- How far along am I?
Gestational age determines the type and cost of abortion procedures that you could be eligible for. Gestational age can be estimated from the first day of your last menstrual period, but only an ultrasound exam can accurately determine how far along your pregnancy is. In one study, first trimester ultrasound corrected gestational age estimates for over 41% of women.2
- Do I have an STD?
Having any type of abortion with an untreated STD jeopardizes a woman’s health by increasing her risk of infection and other complications.3 Since over 70% of women who have Chlamydia do not have any symptoms,4 it is critical to get tested before pursuing an abortion.
