Abortion Safety Checklist

Abortion, like any of the options available to you, is a big decision to make. Consider reviewing this safety checklist before scheduling an appointment for a procedure. It will walk you through each of the steps you need to take so that you can be sure you are making the right decision for you.

– Confirm Your Pregnancy

Did you know that a pregnancy test alone does not confirm your pregnancy? You can receive medical confirmation of your pregnancy with an ultrasound. Having an ultrasound performed will show how far along you are and this will determine which abortion procedures you qualify for.

– Get Tested and Treated for STI/STDs

You will need to consider being tested and treated for STI’s. If you have an abortion with an untreated STI/STD, you are at increased risk for pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). Keep in mind, this can result in future infertility or chronic pain. To put your mind at ease, you will be offered no-cost STI/STD testing and treatment at Aim Women’s Center during your appointment.

– Understand the Risks

As with any medical procedure, there are a number of risks associated with abortion. Whether you are considering a medication or surgical abortion, you need to be prepared by understanding the short and long-term risks. We encourage you to come in and speak with our medical staff to learn more about these risks.

– Consider the Alternatives

It is important for you to consider all your options: abortion, adoption and parenting so you can make an informed decision. Regardless of what options you are considering, this decision can only be made by you and you alone. You can take as much time as you need to consider each option so that you have the confidence you need to make the best decision for you.

– Pause and Ask

You are faced with a big decision. Regardless of what options you are considering, it is beneficial to pause and address your concerns.

You can visit Aim Women’s Center and get answers to your questions so you can be confident in the decision you make.
