How Do I Know If I Am Pregnant?
The first step in learning if you are pregnant is to come to the Pregnancy Resource Center for no-cost pregnancy testing and ultrasound. Our tests are lab-quality, so you can be sure you are getting the most accurate result. If your pregnancy test is positive, you will want to schedule a no-cost ultrasound next.
When Should I Take A Pregnancy Test?
To get the most accurate result from a pregnancy test, you should wait a day or two after your period should have started. Of course, this only works if you have regular periods (every 28-30 days) or are keeping track. If your periods are irregular or you’re not sure when your last period ended, waiting five to seven days after the missed period will give you a more accurate result.
Why Do I Need An Ultrasound?
Receiving a positive result on your pregnancy test isn’t enough information. You need to know if the pregnancy is viable (a heartbeat is detected), how far along you are, and where the pregnancy is located. The only way to learn that information is with ultrasound. We offer no-cost ultrasound scanning.
What Is The Abortion Pill?
The abortion pill, also known as RU-486, is a type of medical abortion. Although it sounds easy, the term is misleading. You take more than one drug, and the process can take days. To use this method, you will need to know how far along your pregnancy is. Be sure to schedule your no-cost ultrasound with us first.
What Are The Risks of Abortion?
According to the Cleveland Clinic, the risks of a medical abortion are:
- Incomplete abortion, which may need to be followed by surgical abortion
- An ongoing unwanted pregnancy if the procedure doesn’t work
- Heavy and prolonged bleeding
- Digestive system discomfort
- Allergy to the medications used
