Frequently Asked Questions
When Should I Take a Pregnancy Test?
According to the Mayo Clinic, the best time to take a pregnancy test to receive the most accurate results is at least one week after your missed period. A pregnancy hormone called HCG needs time to produce a detectable amount of HCG on a pregnancy test.
Should I Get An Ultrasound?
Don’t skip this important step of the process. If your test result is positive, we offer ultrasounds at no cost so you can confirm your pregnancy.
An ultrasound determined three important details of your pregnancy, including:
- How far along you are in your pregnancy
- The viability of your pregnancy (if there is a heartbeat)
- The location of your pregnancy (if it’s growing within your uterus or not)
Confirm with an ultrasound will help determine your pregnancy options. It can also alert you to any pregnancy complications like miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy (where the pregnancy grows outside the uterus). Medical attention may be needed if these complications arise.
What are the Risks of Abortion?
Each type of abortion procedure comes with serious health risks. Common risks of surgical abortion include damage to the womb or cervix, uterine perforation, excessive bleeding, and infection.
