Should I Get An Abortion?
If you’re facing an unplanned pregnancy and considering an abortion, you deserve to know the facts and be fully informed. At the LOC we take time to educate you on your abortion options. Make an appointment to meet with one of our consultants about your personal situation, discuss the abortion methods available to you, and get answers to the questions you may have. All services at LOC services are free and confidential.
Ultrasound Before An Abortion
It’s a good idea to get an ultrasound before getting an abortion. With an ultrasound, you’ll know for sure how many weeks pregnant you are. The stage of your pregnancy will determine the types of abortions available to you. You can also learn if you might have a natural miscarriage and whether the pregnancy is in utero (in the uterus) or ectopic (outside the womb), which can be life-threatening.
At LOC, qualified clients may be referred for a no-cost ultrasound with one of our providing medical partners. To qualify, make an appointment at LOC for a free pregnancy test. Be informed before having an abortion.
Be Sure You’re Really Pregnant
Before getting any type of abortion, you will need to verify that you’re actually pregnant. Even if you have pregnancy symptoms or have taken a home-test, it helps to have a medical-quality pregnancy test to confirm.
LOC offers free laboratory-quality pregnancy tests that are more accurate than some over-the-counter varieties. And if you test positive at LOC, we will refer you for a free ultrasound to determine the stage and viability of your pregnancy.
How Much Do You Know About Abortion Procedures?
Different abortion methods are used at different stages of pregnancy. You deserve to understand each of them and be fully informed about your choices. A LOC consultant will explain what you can expect from each abortion procedure as well as abortion risk factors so that you can make an informed decision.
