Be Sure You Are Pregnant
Before getting any type of abortion, you will need to be certain that you are actually pregnant and how far you are into the pregnancy. Even if you have pregnancy symptoms or have taken a home test, you should come to our center for a confirmation of your home test result.
Did you know that 15-20% of all pregnancies end naturally in miscarriage because such pregnancies are not viable? If you are pregnant, a urine pregnancy test alone will not tell if you fall in that category. If you have a positive result at our center, we will provide a free ultrasound to determine that your pregnancy is viable. An ultrasound can tell you if your pregnancy is in the uterus, determine the gestational age and confirm cardiac activity. A medical professional will answer any questions you might have and help you navigate your next steps. No pressure, no stress, no drama...just answers.

Abortion & STI'S
Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI's) pose a serious risk to a woman's future reproductive and overall health, especially if left untreated. According to the Centers for Disease Control in the United States, any abortion procedure (including medical abortion) opens the risk of transmitting bacteria from outside the woman's body or from the vagina into the woman's cervix.
If you feel you are experiencing symptoms of an STI, please contact your doctor as soon as possible. It's important to remember that not all STIs produce noticeable symptoms; therefore, it's recommended that you get tested for STIs regularly if you are sexually active with new or multiple partners.
