abortion and womens health

Answers to questions you may be asking if you're considering an abortion:

Before you take the next steps, consult Bella Women's Center for answers to these questions:

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. At our women's center, we offer free pregnancy testing and ultrasound exams so you can be certain.

How far along am I?

How far along you are will determine what kind of abortion procedure you would be eligible to receive - which impacts costs and possible side effects.

Is it important to know if I have an STI before I terminate a pregnancy?

Yes. Having an STI (sexually transmitted infection) when you have an abortion can cause Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID), leading to a lifetime of reproductive health problems. The professionals at our women's center can provide free confidential STI testing.

The Patient Advocates and Medical Staff at Bella Women's Center are here to provide you with all of the information that you need to make an informed choice about your pregnancy. The Bella team wants you to know that you are not alone and you are not a number. 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. We are here to help in any way we can in this often difficult time in your life.
