If you are considering an abortion, RealOptions Obria Medical Clinics offers pre- termination screenings to help you navigate your abortion and pregnancy decisions.
Before deciding the outcome of your pregnancy, it is important to answer these three questions:
- Will my pregnancy end naturally?
A positive pregnancy test does not mean that your pregnancy will continue. Up to one in four pregnancies end naturally on their own, most often before 7 weeks. Be aware that some abortion clinics have been known to provide abortions without confirming viable pregnancy. Do not risk your health (or spend your money) to abort a pregnancy that may already be ending naturally.
- How far along am I?
Gestational age determines the type and cost of abortion procedures that you could be eligible for. Gestational age can be estimated from the first day of your last menstrual period, but only an ultrasound exam can accurately determine how far along your pregnancy is. According to the Guttmacher Institute, the average cost for a early medication abortion in the Unite States is $504. The median cost for a second trimester abortion is $1,195. Later term abortion can cost $3,000 or more.
- Do I have an STD?
Having any type of abortion with an untreated STD jeopardizes a woman’s health by increasing her risk of infection and other complications. Since over 70% of women who have Chlamydia do not have any symptoms, it is critical to get tested before pursuing an abortion.
If you are trying to decide if adoption is right for you, you may find it helpful to learn more about open adoption. Read true stories of women who decided to make an adoption plan. When you consider choosing parents and making an adoption plan, you play an active role in every part of the process. Adoption can bring a positive ending to a problematic situation and can benefit everyone involved. We understand that making an adoption plan can be difficult, and our caring advocates are here to make the process as smooth as possible for you.
Many people would like to be parents at some point in their lives. Although the timing and your current situation may not be what you pictured, your pregnancy still offers you the opportunity to experience the joy of becoming a parent. We can help you understand and realistically evaluate your options to determine if parenting is right for you.
If you have decided to parent or make an adoption plan, taking good care of your baby means taking care of yourself. Your physical health and emotional well-being are important, as is a healthy lifestyle. We provide prenatal care, and can help you with resources and support programs. We also have relationships with many local community organizations and can assist you with referrals.
It is very important that you determine what is best for you now and in the future. Call or book an appointment online at one of our locations.
