What are the common signs of early pregnancy?
- Missed Period
- Tender, swollen breasts
- Nausea, with or without vomiting
- Increased urination
- Food Cravings or Aversions
- Mood Swings
It’s not possible to verify a pregnancy by symptoms alone. If you’re experiencing any of these early signs of pregnancy, according to the Mayo Clinic, you should take a pregnancy test to confirm.
When should I take a pregnancy test?
You’re likely to get reliable results if you wait until the first day after your missed period. However, waiting a few more days will most likely give you more accurate results. We offer free pregnancy testing services to get you the answers you need.
Do I need an ultrasound?
Ultrasounds answer three important questions:
- Is the pregnancy viable?
- Where is the pregnancy located?
- How far along is the pregnancy?
You need to know the answers to all these questions before you can make a decision about abortion, adoption, or parenting. We offer free ultrasounds.
Do I need an appointment?
We accept walk-ins for pregnancy testing but require appointments for all other services. Contact us to learn more and schedule your free appointment today!
What is the abortion pill?
The abortion pill (or medication abortion) is an early pregnancy termination method. The first drug in the regimen ends the pregnancy, and the second drug is taken to cause cramping and contractions to expel the pregnancy. It’s important to remember abortion is a serious medical procedure and comes with serious side effects and risks.
Can I order the abortion pill online?
There are websites that claim to sell the abortion pill, but often, they are not FDA-regulated drugs. The FDA requires an in-person doctor’s visit due to the dangerous nature of the abortion pill. If the drugs are ordered from a non-regulated source, you have no idea if you are taking the correct dosage, or if they were manufactured in a safe environment. It is also dangerous to take the abortion pill if you are more than nine weeks into your pregnancy, so the pregnancy should be verified with a pregnancy test and ultrasound.
