Q & A
If you had a positive home pregnancy test or are experiencing common symptoms of pregnancy, you may be asking, “Am I pregnant?” Do any of these sound familiar?
- I’ve missed a period
- I feel like throwing up sometimes
- My breasts feel tender
- I have to pee more often
- I’m more tired than usual
- I’m having mood swings
Although not everyone experiences these signs, the symptoms above are commonly associated with early pregnancy.1 Most tests you can buy are very reliable, but only a physician or other appropriate healthcare professional can confirm that you are pregnant. Contact us about a no-cost consultation and pregnancy test.
Emergency Contraception may be a viable option for you depending upon where you are in your cycle. Our staff is trained to help you with this calculation.
Emergency Contraception is often referred to as “the morning-after pill” or “Plan B.” This contraception is designed to prevent the sperm from reaching the egg or prevents the fertilized egg from implanting in the uterus, which terminates the pregnancy very early.
Commonly sold as Plan B One-Step and ella®, these emergency contraceptives may reduce the chance of pregnancy. These medications are reported to work in several possible ways: Delaying ovulation, blocking sperm from joining with an egg, or preventing a fertilized egg from implanting – some may consider this a very early abortion.1,2,3,4
This form of contraception does not prevent sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and potential side effects and risks should be considered. Please see #4 in the References link below.
More information on emergency contraception is listed below. You can also learn more by scheduling a confidential consultation with us. We do not provide contraceptives.
Pregnant and not sure what to do? Learn about your options and what to expect next. If a baby is not in your plans right now, abortion might seem like the best way out. Many women and couples find it empowering to understand all their options before making a final decision. If you have a viable pregnancy you have three choices to consider. Are you going to go with abortion or adoption? Or will you choose to become a parent? Our trained coaches have helped hundreds of women make decisions they are proud of today.
Before making a pregnancy decision, you will need to first know if you really are pregnant and how far along the pregnancy has developed. An ultrasound exam is the most reliable way to confirm a possible pregnancy and will help you make a fully informed choice. Contact us to schedule your free appointment for an accurate pregnancy test and ultrasound exam to confirm a pregnancy.
