Your Abortion Plan

Things To Consider.

Your Abortion Plan

Relax. You’ve got this.

Before Your Abortion

If you’re pregnant and considering abortion, your first step is to schedule a Full Pregnancy Evaluation which includes a free ultrasound to answer these four essential questions about your abortion plan:

1. Is my pregnancy viable?

It’s important to confirm that you are pregnant and that your pregnancy is viable. One in four pregnancies end in miscarriage before 7 weeks.1  You may not need to have an abortion. The Full Pregnancy Evaluation will tell you what you need to know.

2. Is my pregnancy in the right place?

Our ultrasound evaluation will detect if your pregnancy is inside your uterus.  A pregnancy in the fallopian tubes (known as an ectopic pregnancy) is very dangerous and must be treated immediately.

3. How far along am I?

Your gestational age (the number of weeks you’ve been pregnant) determines the cost and type of abortion that you could be eligible for.

4. 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.2

Our Full Pregnancy Evaluation will help you make the pregnancy decision that’s right for you.

“I am so glad I went to Women’s Choice. I had so many questions and the Nurses were really patient and helpful.”

The Full Pregnancy Evaluation Appointment

While some of our services can be done virtually, this appointment is an in-clinic visit at one of our center locations. You will meet with a Nurse or other Medical Staff member who will:

  • Review your health history and answer your medical questions.
  • Perform a clinical pregnancy test.
  • If your pregnancy test is positive, the staff will review your health history. An ultrasound exam to confirm pregnancy and determine how far along you are may be done the same day.
  • Review all of your pregnancy options, including abortion procedures, risks and side effects.
  • Provide medical, insurance, and community support referrals .
  • Provide STD screening.

Schedule any follow up appointments as needed.

Payment

All of the pregnancy services at Women’s Choice Network Centers are provided at no cost.

“Great experience! Staff was very kind and helpful. They gave me my first ultrasound, printed out several copies of pictures, provided me with the proof of pregnancy form that I needed, did std testing, and also supplied me with prenatal pills. My experience was wonderful and I would recommend them to anyone in need. Everything was astonishingly free and the services are of great quality.”
