Abortion is one of your options for your unplanned pregnancy. It is also a serious physical and emotional decision. Like all medical procedures, you should review your health and potential risks first.

We believe in providing accurate information about your pregnancy and all of your options. Don’t put your health and safety at risk. Get all of the information you need before choosing an abortion.

What Do I Need To Do First?

Your first step is to confirm your pregnancy. Your menstrual cycle can change for various reasons, such as stress, excessive exercise, hormonal imbalance, and certain medications.

Free Lab-Quality Pregnancy Test

Start by taking a lab-quality pregnancy test. Even if you’ve taken a home test, getting a second opinion is vital. Research has found that many issues can result in a false-positive result on a pregnancy test.

Free Limited Ultrasound

Suppose you get a second positive pregnancy test result. Your next step is to verify your pregnancy is viable (progressing) or determine if you have miscarried. An ultrasound is the most reliable way of getting this information.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) estimates as many as 26% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage. It is possible to get a positive pregnancy test result days and even weeks following a miscarriage.

Ultrasound also reveals how far along you are in your pregnancy and the pregnancy’s location. We can refer you for a free and confidential limited ultrasound scan.

How Can I Learn The Facts About Abortion?

Talk with a medical professional or one of our trained peer counselors to get accurate information about abortion procedures, side effects, and potential risks. You owe it to yourself to learn the dangers of both medical and surgical abortion.

The number of weeks you’ve been pregnant determines which method is used by the abortion provider. The FDA has approved a medical abortion (the abortion pill) for up to 10 weeks of pregnancy. North Carolina law does not permit abortion after 20 weeks and 6 days.

Risks range from incomplete abortion to scarring of your uterus, depending on the procedure and length of your pregnancy. Although rare, sometimes a pregnancy implants somewhere other than your uterus. This type of pregnancy is called ectopic and can be extremely dangerous to your health, which is why an ultrasound is essential.
