If you think you are pregnant and are considering an abortion, gathering information about your pregnancy and options is an excellent place to start your decision-making process. When you begin this journey, here are three things you need to do:
Start With Pregnancy Testing
False positive results are possible when taking a home pregnancy test. A pregnancy test works to detect the amount of HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) in your urine released by the placenta during pregnancy.
We understand how scary the process of pregnancy confirmation is, and we’re here to help. Schedule an appointment today to learn about your pregnancy test results and be informed about all your options. We are here for you.
Receive an Ultrasound
Once you receive a lab-quality pregnancy test, an ultrasound allows you to know what options you’re eligible for by confirming the viability of your pregnancy, how far along you are, and the location of your pregnancy.
Some other essential reasons to receive an ultrasound include the following:
- Up to 20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage. An ultrasound can detect a heartbeat to determine if the pregnancy is growing.
- Medical abortions may not be a safe option for you if you are over 10 weeks pregnant. An ultrasound will reveal how far along the pregnancy is.
- You may have an ectopic pregnancy; a pregnancy begins to grow outside the uterus. This is a life-threatening condition for the woman and must be treated immediately. Confirming the location of your pregnancy is essential to detect this complication.
