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?

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.
