PREGNANCY CONFIRMATION

We offer Pregnancy Confirmation to confirm a viable pregnancy.

  • Perform a clinical pregnancy test. If positive,
    • Perform an ultrasound exam to confirm pregnancy and determine how far along you are.
    • Review all of your pregnancy options, including abortion procedures, risks and side effects.

Medical services are provided free of charge by licensed medical personnel.

If you think you may be pregnant, these are the first essential questions to have answered before determining your pregnancy outcome:

Is my pregnancy viable?

One in five pregnancies end before 7 weeks. 1 It’s important to rule out the possibility of a dangerous ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy in the Fallopian tubes).

How far along am I?

Your gestational age determines your due date and impacts your pregnancy options. Only an ultrasound exam can accurately determine gestational age.

Do I need an ultrasound before an abortion?
An abortion clinic may or may not offer an ultrasound before an abortion, though sometimes they do. An ultrasound can confirm a viable pregnancy and estimate how far along in pregnancy you are. If you are considering abortion, an ultrasound will provide important information that will tell you more about your options. Abortion costs vary depending on how far along you are and the abortion procedure that you receive. Speak with us today about our free and confidential ultrasound services.
