When facing an unplanned pregnancy, it’s normal to feel overwhelmed by a lot of emotions, including negative ones. These initial negative emotions are common for all women, including women planning to become pregnant. We want you to know you are not alone.
Often due to your relationship status, or lack thereof, finances, career, or simply bad timing, you feel unsupported or unable to achieve your goals and be pregnant, which is why you may find yourself searching for abortion options in California.
Before you make an abortion decision, we want to encourage you to seek out these four abortion tips:
- Get testing done:
Before you book an abortion appointment, it’s essential to confirm your pregnancy with a pregnancy test and ultrasound. An ultrasound will confirm that the pregnancy is located within the uterus, detect a heartbeat, and determine the gestational age of your pregnancy. You will need to know how far along you are if you’re considering abortion because abortion types are determined by how far along you are in your pregnancy.
- Talk to a medical professional:
Talking through a procedure with a medical professional who has your best interest in mind is always a good idea. Having answers to what the procedure will be like, the risks, and how long the recovery process matters because this is your health, and your health is essential! In addition, understanding what happens during an abortion will help you make an informed decision.
- Check the clinics in your area:
It’s always a good idea to do a clinic check before you make an appointment. It’s smart to look at the reviews and research any issues they may have had recently.
- Get affordable care:
Where can you find affordable care? Why not come to Pathway Health Clinic? All of our services are at no cost and confidential. Additionally, we can do a pre-abortion screening in which you will get a pregnancy test and ultrasound (if you’re far enough along), as well as be able to speak with a nurse and a trained staff member to discuss all your options. Although we do not refer or provide abortions, we can help you figure out your next best step.
