You think you might be pregnant, but being pregnant right now isn’t what you had in mind. What are you going to do? If your next thought is abortion, you’ll need a little more information first.
Before anyone can have an abortion, they need to know three things. Don’t make the appointment with the abortion clinic and spend your money. Get the answers you need first from Miami Valley Women’s Center. Best of all? It’s free!
#1 Confirmation of Your Pregnancy
Even if you’ve taken an at-home pregnancy test, it’s essential to 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, 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 affect your menstrual cycle. If you’ve experienced any of those issues, you may not be pregnant.
It’s even possible you could have been pregnant but are experiencing a miscarriage. Many women have miscarriages. Research shows the highest percentage of them occur before week 6 of pregnancy. A woman can have a miscarriage in the early weeks, before even realizing she is pregnant, and it will look like a late period.
So, why spend money on an at-home pregnancy test when you can take one for free at Miami Valley Women’s Center? A trained staff member will quickly review the results with you so you can be confident you have the correct result.
#2 How Far Along You Are
Before anyone can have an abortion, they need to know how far along their pregnancy is. 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.
Your ultrasound gives you real-time details like the actual date of conception (how far along your pregnancy is) and if the pregnancy is viable. For a pregnancy to be viable, you need to know if there is a heartbeat and the fetus is growing.
Finally, you need to ensure your pregnancy is located 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 Miami Valley Women’s Center, our limited ultrasounds are free. They are performed by a licensed sonographer so you can be confident the procedure is being done correctly.
