If you are thinking you might be pregnant and consider abortion as your best option, you need essential health information. Bella Women’s Center is here to provide the details you need!

Three things are crucial to know before choosing an abortion. They are the following:

1. Are You Pregnant?

Many pregnancy symptoms can also be related to a virus or are symptoms of an upcoming period. The best way to know for sure is with a pregnancy test.

Urine pregnancy tests can be purchased in almost any grocery or drug store. If done correctly at the right time, they can be up to 99% accurate. Ask us about free pregnancy testing.

2. Is Your Pregnancy Viable?

In other words, does it look like your pregnancy will continue? The best way to find out is to have an ultrasound scan.

Ultrasound uses sound waves to show an image of the embryo or fetus inside the uterus. The ultrasound technician can tell how far along you are and confirm the presence of a heartbeat.

The FDA states that medical abortions (also known as the abortion pill) should only be taken through the 10th week of pregnancy. Therefore, it is crucial to get an accurate measurement.

An ultrasound can also tell if the pregnancy is in the uterus. An ectopic pregnancy, which grows outside the uterus, typically in one of the fallopian tubes, can be dangerous and would require immediate treatment.

Do You Have a Sexually Transmitted Disease?

You need to know if you have an STD/STI before having an abortion. This is particularly true with chlamydia and gonorrhea.

During an abortion, existing STDs/STIs can spread into the uterus when the normal barrier created by the cervix (the opening of the uterus) is disturbed.

If left untreated, you can develop a serious condition called pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). This can result in infertility and chronic pelvic pain.
