Three Questions Before You Decide
No matter what your situation, if you are considering abortion, you need to have the answers to these three important medical questions:
1) Am I really pregnant?
It is possible to have a positive pregnancy test and NOT be pregnant. Between 15% to 20% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage1. The best way to confirm your pregnancy is through a confidential ultrasound exam. Hope offers free limited obstetrical ultrasound via a trained registered nurse on staff full-time.
2) How far along am I?
How far along you are will determine what kind of abortion procedure you would be eligible to receive, which impacts cost and personal side-effects. Hope Pregnancy Center can tell you how far along you are (within a week) through the use of ultrasound.
3) Do I have an STD?
Having an STD when you get an abortion can negatively impact your reproductive health for a lifetime causing such things as Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID). Many STDs may never develop symptoms, yet can still wreak havoc on your reproductive system, especially if you have an abortion. Hope Pregnancy Center can provide you with a free & confidential STD screening by visiting our STD Clinic Testing 4 U. You can book an appointment by visiting the Testing 4 U website.
