Before considering an abortion near Dana Point, CA, you need to verify you are pregnant and how far along you are so you know all of the options available to you for your pregnancy. At the Pregnancy Resource Center Medical Clinic and on our Mobile Clinic we offer pregnancy testing, abortion consults, and limited ultrasounds all at no cost.
You may have an STD or STI (sexually transmitted disease or infection) even if you are not experiencing any symptoms.
An ultrasound will verify the gestational age of the fetus. This is especially helpful if you have irregular periods, have frequent spotting, or are not sure when you had your last period.
Ultrasound also determines the viability of the pregnancy. This is important since 20% – 25% of first trimester pregnancies end in miscarriage. Should the ultrasound reveal that the fetus is growing outside of the uterus (known as an ectopic pregnancy), you will be given instructions for immediate medical attention, as this condition can be life-threatening.
It’s important to know that you do not have to face this alone. Abortion may seem like the best decision for an unplanned pregnancy, but there is a lot to consider before visiting an abortion clinic. You can make an informed decision if you know what to expect from the procedure and understand the risks.
Your first step is to make an appointment at Pregnancy Resource Center Medical Clinic to verify pregnancy and review your options.
