Are you scared when it comes to making a decision regarding your unexpected pregnancy? We understand your fears as it’s a major decision. You are not alone.
If considering an abortion, you should be aware of the things needed before an abortion to ensure you protect your health. These include:
- Medical-grade pregnancy testing
- Receiving an ultrasound
- Consultation regarding your pregnancy decision
1. Medical-Grade Pregnancy Testing
Pregnancy testing is your first step to pregnancy confirmation. At Sierra Pregnancy + Health, pregnancy testing is done by our highly trained RNs using medical-grade, urine-based pregnancy tests.
Our nurse will discuss your test results, and you will have time to ask any pregnancy-related health questions.
2. Why Do I Need An Ultrasound?
There are many details that an ultrasound confirms so you can determine your options. An ultrasound confirms the viability (health and progression) of your pregnancy, how far along you are, and the location of your pregnancy.
Abortion procedures are done at different points of pregnancy, so it’s important to understand how far along you are. Medical and surgical abortion rely on gestational age for eligibility.
The Mayo Clinic shares that up to 20% of known pregnancies end in natural miscarriages. An ultrasound can alert you to any possible complications like miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy (where the pregnancy grows outside of the uterus).
