Am I Really Pregnant?

Before planning for the future, or telling your partner, be sure you are pregnant! Home pregnancy tests are very accurate, but like any test, there is always a chance for error. You could receive a false positive if taken at the wrong time, or you skipped a step.

Get the clarity you are looking for with a no-cost pregnancy test at our center today. If you receive a positive pregnancy test, an ultrasound is your next step to pregnancy confirmation.

Do I Need An Ultrasound?

We strongly encourage you to receive an ultrasound, as it confirms important details of your pregnancy to determine which options you qualify for. An ultrasound tells you three important details, including:

  1. If you have a viable pregnancy
  2. The location of your pregnancy
  3. How far along you are in your pregnancy

What Are the Risks of Abortion?

There are multiple risks involved with a medical abortion that you should know of beforehand to protect your health. These risks include:

  • Incomplete abortion, which may need to be followed by surgical abortion
  • An ongoing pregnancy if the procedure doesn’t work
  • Heavy and prolonged bleeding
  • Infection
  • Fever
  • Digestive system discomfort

Common risks involved with a surgical abortion include:

  • Uterine perforation
  • Infection
  • Injury to the cervix

Are Your Services Free?

Yes – all of our services and support are at no cost to you! We care about supporting women and men facing unplanned pregnancy and we care about your future. You are not alone.

Can I Bring Someone With Me?

Absolutely. We encourage women to bring along either their partner or someone they feel comfortable with. It’s completely up to you!

Schedule a no-cost appointment with us today to put your questions to rest and move forward. There is peace in knowing what’s next. Know where your pregnancy stands today.
