What Is My First Step If I Am Considering Abortion?
Your first step is to make an appointment at Options for Women to verify pregnancy and review your options. Your no cost pre-abortion consult includes:
- Lab-quality pregnancy testing
- Your limited OB ultrasound (based on LMP)
- Referrals for limited STD/STI testing and treatment, community resources and other practical help.
What You Should Know:
The importance of an ultrasound
- An ultrasound will verify the gestational age of the fetus. This is especially helpful if you have irregular periods, have frequent spotting, or are not sure when you had your last period.
At Options for Women, we want you to know that we are not only here to help you, but we are on your team. Our staff consist of several Life Coaches that have been in your shoes. One of them is standing by to assist you.
Coerced abortion is illegal. You are the only one legally allowed to decide which option is right for your unintended pregnancy. No one (parent or partner) can force you into an abortion, even if you are a minor.
