Questions you may be asking if you are considering abortion

Am I really pregnant?

It’s possible to have a positive pregnancy test and NOT be pregnant. The best way to confirm your pregnancy is through an ultrasound exam. We offer free pregnancy testing and ultrasound exams.

How far along am I?

How far along you are in your pregnancy will determine the abortion procedure you are eligible for, which will impact the cost of the termination and the potential side effects.

Is it important to know if I have an STI before I have an abortion?

Yes. Having an STI (sexually transmitted infection) during a pregnancy termination procedure increases your risk for Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID), which can be detrimental to your future fertility. We provide free confidential STI testing.

The Hope Life Center team wants you to know that you are not alone. You may be feeling pressure from others to make a decision, but in reality, you have plenty of time to get all of your questions answered and make an informed decision about your future.
