“The first thing you need to know is whether or not you are really pregnant,” said Kulle. RealOptions offers a lab grade pregnancy test and an ultrasound (if you have a positive pregnancy test) to give you full information about your pregnancy.”
Additionally, in our medical clinic you can receive an official pregnancy verification and dating of your pregnancy. These are essential because your pregnancy options are determined by how far along you are in the pregnancy.
What exactly is a pregnancy verification and why do I need it?
When a licensed medical facility, like RealOptions Obria Medical Clinics, performs a pregnancy test, it issues you a pregnancy verification if the test is positive or negative, and by which method this was verified. This pregnancy verification is the official document that serves as the proof of a pregnancy test and can be used for insurance companies, Medi-Cal, and community agencies that provide services like the W.I.C. program, and employers, and will be needed if you obtain an abortion. An abortion cannot be obtained without having a pregnancy verification.
Why do I need dating for my pregnancy?
