Your home pregnancy test is positive and you’re thinking you just might want to have an abortion. What’s your first step?
We recommend coming to Your First Look Women’s Center for a free, pre-abortion screening. At this one-hour appointment, we will first give you a medical grade pregnancy test. If the test is positive, an ultrasound may be offered. The ultrasound will confirm that your pregnancy is viable–that is–growing in the uterus. Since nearly one in three pregnancies will naturally miscarry, it is important to know if you have a viable pregnancy before scheduling an abortion procedure.
At Your First Look we will share information on all your options and answer any questions you may have. Based on how far along you are, we can go over the abortion procedure you would have along with any risks or side effects you may experience.
Your First Look also offers limited STD testing. Women planning on an abortion should be tested and treated for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea prior to an abortion to reduce the risk of developing Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID). Untreated PID could put your future reproductive health at risk.
We have appointments available for pre-abortion screenings Mondays through Fridays. We recognize that you may be anxious to confirm viability so we will do our best to get you in at one of our two brick and mortar locations as well as at our mobile women’s center. Call 419-720-3338 or text 567-455-1101 to speak with our intake coordinator.
