What Do You Need To Know Before An Abortion

What & Why

Take control of your health and safety by receiving evidence-based medical information about your pregnancy. Prior to an abortion, the following factors are necessary to confirm:

Some pregnancies may be located outside the uterus (ectopic pregnancy). An ectopic pregnancy is a medical emergency that requires immediate treatment from an OB-GYN or emergency room. A medication abortion does not treat an ectopic pregnancy. Symptoms following a medication abortion can emulate those of an ectopic pregnancy. This is why it is essential to confirm the location of a viable pregnancy.  

It is important to ensure you are not taking any unnecessary medical steps. Because 10-20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage, it’s essential to identify whether or not you have a viable pregnancy. It’s important to involve your healthcare team in choosing the right treatment for you. 

It is not uncommon for the dating of a pregnancy to be off solely based on your LMP(the first day of your last menstrual period). This is because many factors can influence when conception actually happens. For this reason, it’s important to have the gestation of your pregnancy confirmed with an ultrasound. Types of abortion procedures and their potential risks are dependent on the gestation of your pregnancy.

STDs may increase your risk for complications related to an abortion procedure. Some STDs may not show symptoms. It’s important to be tested and treated.

It is unlawful for your parents, relatives, boyfriend, or provider to unduly pressure, force, or coerce you into having an abortion. No one can legally force you to have an abortion. If this is happening to you, please call us today.
