If you think you might be pregnant, then The Women’s Clinic of Columbus can help you understand your options. Some women feel like now isn’t a good time to have a baby, or worry that they won’t be able to continue on in school. Abortion is a permanent decision, and it is a good idea to take a couple of days to get as much information as you can about all your options to make the best choice for you.
Before you start to worry, it’s a good idea to make sure that you’re actually pregnant. Many women contact us because they are late for their period, but a late period is only one symptom of pregnancy. Stress, a change in diet, or a change in exercise can all have an effect on a woman’s period. To know for sure if you are pregnant, it’s always a good idea to test for pregnancy.
Most pregnancy tests are generally accurate; however, it might be a good idea to have an ultrasound. An ultrasound can tell you if your pregnancy is viable. Please know that 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage, so an abortion might not be necessary. Contact us and we will work with you to schedule an ultrasound and provide it at no cost to you.
