You have been feeling like you are going to throw up for days now, your breasts hurt, and to top it off, your period is late. Do you think you might be pregnant? If being pregnant right now is not what you had in mind, you need to decide what you are going to do. Are you thinking about getting an abortion? You are going to need more information first.
Do not make an appointment with the abortion clinic and spend your money. Before anyone can have an abortion, they need to know three things. Get the information you need from Robbinsdale Women’s Center. Best of all? You can get it at no cost to you!
#1 A Pregnancy Test
Even if you have taken an at-home pregnancy test, you must confirm your pregnancy with lab-quality pregnancy testing. A pregnancy test measures the level of the hCG hormone in your urine. If hCG is detected, you can be confident you are pregnant. Sometimes a home pregnancy test is taken too early or the directions are not followed correctly, which produces a false-negative test result.
Plus, there are other reasons your period might come late. Stress, a hormone imbalance, or weight issues can all affect your menstrual cycle. It is even possible you could have been pregnant but are experiencing a miscarriage. A woman can have a miscarriage in the early weeks of pregnancy, before even realizing she is pregnant, and it will look like a late period.
So, why spend the money on an at-home pregnancy test when you can receive no-cost, confidential pregnancy testing at Robbinsdale Women’s Center? One of our trained staff members will quickly review the results with you so you can be confident you have the correct result.
#2 An Ultrasound
Before anyone can have an abortion, they need to know how far along they are in their pregnancy. Knowing when your pregnancy began will determine what type of abortion you can have, medical or surgical. The quickest and easiest way to get that information is to have an ultrasound after a positive pregnancy test.
An ultrasound gives you real-time details. You will learn how far along your pregnancy is (the actual date of conception). Getting an ACCURATE assessment of how far along you are in your pregnancy allows you to learn about the specific procedures that are available to you at that point in your pregnancy. You will also know if the pregnancy is viable. For a pregnancy to be viable, you need to know if there is a heartbeat and if the fetus is growing.
Finally, you need to know if your pregnancy is in your uterus. If it is outside of your uterus, it is called an ectopic pregnancy. This can be a serious medical situation requiring immediate attention.
At Robbinsdale Women’s Center, we provide no-cost limited obstetric ultrasounds. They are performed by a medical professional so you can be confident the procedure is being done correctly.
