Every woman needs to have the answers to three basic questions when considering her pregnancy options:
- Am I really pregnant? It is possible to have a positive pregnancy test and not have a viable (living and growing in the uterus) pregnancy.
- If I am pregnant, how far along am I? Gestational age determines what type of abortion procedure a patient would be eligible to receive. Abortion procedures have different costs and side effects.
- Is it important to know if I have a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD)? 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.
