Abortion is a serious medical procedure, whether you take the pills or choose the surgical option. As such, you should go into it with all the information you can.

At Willowbrook Women’s Center, we can provide you with a no-cost pre-abortion screening, which includes a pregnancy test and ultrasound, as well as facts about abortion. Our experienced medical team can answer your questions, enabling you to make the best decision for your health and well-being.

What Do You Need to Know Before Choosing Abortion?

There are several things you need to know before making a pregnancy decision. The following list is especially relevant when it comes to considering abortion.

You need answers to the following questions:

1. Are You Pregnant?

Sometimes, pregnancy symptoms are confusing. Other health conditions have similar symptoms in common.

For instance, nausea, fatigue, and nasal congestion may actually be symptoms of a cold or flu virus. Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) can also cause abdominal bloating and breast tenderness.

For the most accurate results, take a lab-quality pregnancy test at Willowbrook Women’s Center. Why wonder if you don’t have to?

2. How Far Along Is Your Pregnancy?

Knowing when you became pregnant is sometimes obvious, but it can also be difficult to tell. The one way to know for sure is with an ultrasound.

An ultrasound provides crucial information, especially if you are choosing what type of abortion to get. According to the FDA, Medical abortions can only be done until ten weeks. Beyond this timeframe, a provider may recommend another type of abortion.

3. Is Your Pregnancy Viable?

When a pregnancy is viable, it has a heartbeat and is likely to continue. An ultrasound can confirm viability.

It is estimated that up to 26% of all pregnancies are lost to miscarriage. Ultrasounds can detect the status of your pregnancy.

Another crucial diagnosis an ultrasound can make is to determine if the pregnancy is in the uterus. Ectopic pregnancies can be dangerous and are best treated if discovered early.

4. Do You Have A Sexually-Transmitted Disease (STD)?

It is crucial to know if you have an STD, no matter what you choose. If the pregnancy is carried to term, the disease can spread to the fetus.

With abortion, diseases such as chlamydia and gonorrhea can spread from the vagina into the uterus. This can lead to a higher risk of pelvic inflammatory disease.

Willowbrook Women’s Center can provide you with answers to all these questions and more. We provide no-cost pregnancy tests and ultrasounds, as well as testing for STDs.
