ULTRASOUND BEFORE ABORTION
Know Before You Go
The abortion method available to you differs depending on how far along you are in your pregnancy. Our licensed medical clinic offers obstetric ultrasounds free of charge to confirm a viable pregnancy and to educate you about your options. We do not provide abortion services or the abortion pill, but we can determine how far along you are and explain to you the different methods of abortion.
Can you take the Abortion Pill?
Before taking the abortion pill, , you will need to know exactly how far along you are.1 The abortion pill is only FDA approved for up to 70 days (10 weeks pregnant) after the start of your last menstrual period.2 We can help learn more about your pregnancy and if the abortion pill is an option for you.
What abortion procedure is available to you?
If you can’t have a medical abortion, a surgical procedure called a dilation and curettage (D&C) may be an option. An ultrasound will help determine the type of abortion procedure(s) available to you, allowing you to have the information needed when calling abortion providers.
Pregnancy comes with a rush of thoughts and feelings. No matter your situation, our caring team is here for you! All services are provided at no cost to you.
