Facing an unplanned pregnancy can be a huge shock, leaving you feeling confused or worried…..You may even feel you’re in an impossible situation.
You’re not alone.
Every day we talk with women who feel just like you do. Although you may feel pressure to make a quick decision, give yourself a chance to get the facts. When it comes to pregnancy options, facts speak volumes. That’s why the DPC makes it easy to get the information and advice you need – without lectures or judgment – so you can make the choice that’s right for you.
Pregnancy termination is just one option. The information provided here contains only the basic facts and it’s best to schedule an appointment to have your pregnancy verified and to meet with our medical personnel for detailed information. A sonogram can be provided to verify if your pregnancy is viable and is developing within the uterus. While we do not perform or refer for abortion, our goal is to ensure every woman makes an informed decision regarding her pregnancy.
Do You Know?
If you are considering terminating your pregnancy, you need to know and think about the following:
• How far along are you in your pregnancy? The cost and type of abortion is determined by the number of weeks a woman is in her pregnancy.
• Are you sure you have a viable pregnancy? Have you verified the baby has implanted and is growing in your uterus? It is not uncommon to have a positive pregnancy test result and yet the pregnancy may not be viable (as evidenced by a fetal heartbeat) or developing in the right place (as in the uterus). One in four pregnancies end in miscarriage and it is also possible to be experiencing an ectopic (tubal) pregnancy, which can be a dangerous health risk.
Before considering various pregnancy termination procedures, it is strongly recommended
you have a sonogram to determine the results of the questions above.
Protect your health: It is recommended you are tested for possible STIs before your procedure.
Having an abortion while infected with an STI can spread the infection and cause you further harm.
