FAQ

Am I really pregnant? Why is an early ultrasound necessary?

Even if you have a positive urine or blood pregnancy test, you may not have a viable pregnancy. An ultrasound exam is the only way to be sure. Get a free ultrasound at Options when you come for your second visit.

* An ultrasound examination is available during the first trimester for women who are not yet under a doctor’s care. The purpose of the ultrasound is limited to diagnosis of viability and gestational age.

What should I know before considering abortion?

Get a FREE Ultrasound at Options
If an ultrasound reveals that the pregnancy will end naturally, abortion will not be necessary.

Get Tested for STDs at Options
You must know whether you are infected with an STD prior to having an abortion. There are often no symptoms. Abortion opens the cervix creating a high risk of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) if you are infected. PID is a leading cause of infertility.

I think I want to carry my pregnancy to term. What should I do?

Meet with an RN and schedule an ultrasound at Options
An early (1st trimester) ultrasound will accurately measure the baby’s gestational age. We can determine your need for prenatal vitamins and care. (Prenatal vitamins are available at no cost.)

* An ultrasound examination is available during the first trimester for women who are not yet under a doctor’s care. The purpose of the ultrasound is limited to diagnosis of viability and gestational age.

I’m not ready to be a parent, but I want to keep my baby. What should I do?

Interim care is a real choice that offers you the gift of time. Private, temporary, foster care will give you the time you need to get back on your feet before becoming a full time parent. Call to talk to someone who can help, or schedule an appointment now.
