What do I need to know about abortion? Abortion is a medical procedure that terminates a pregnancy. Like any medical procedure, it comes with its own risks and potential side effects. Depending on how far along a pregnancy is, a medical or surgical procedure may be done.
You should discuss your options with a medical professional before deciding that abortion is the right choice for you.
If you are considering abortion, it is important to take a few critical steps before making your decision. You should educate yourself with accurate and up-to-date information about abortion procedures and risks as well as confirm your pregnancy with a pregnancy test and ultrasound performed at our clinic to determine how far along you are.

What should I do first?
Before you move forward with your decision, you should first confirm your pregnancy. To do this, you should get a pregnancy test at our clinic and have an ultrasound. The ultrasound will detect a fetal heartbeat, determine how far your pregnancy has developed, and let you know if you have a viable pregnancy. After verifying your pregnancy, you can discuss your options with our trained staff. They will make sure you have the information you need to make an educated decision.
It can be overwhelming when you suspect that you may be pregnant. If you have already taken a home pregnancy test, and it was positive, then you are likely experiencing a lot of feelings all at once. Whether you are feeling happy, scared, anxious, or confused, you should take things slow. After getting a positive pregnancy test at a clinic, the next thing to do is to confirm the pregnancy is viable through an ultrasound.
